The occurrence that is currently known as the “Lululemon Murder” is one of the most renowned crime locations in ongoing memory, however it didn’t begin that way. What started with a ruthless, yet straight forward story of an attack inside an upscale yoga attire store immediately unwound into an upsetting story of falsehoods, concealments, lack of concern, and exceptional savagery.
Loathsomeness In Bethesda
On a chilling March morning in 2011, a representative of the activewear store Lululemon in the princely city of Bethesda, MD (situated in the Washington D.C. region) came in for fill in to no one’s surprise. After showing up to the store, she went over an exceptionally uncommon and violent situation. There were clear spreads, impressions, and hints of blood all over the place.
In the wake of hearing agitating clamors returning from the of the store, she enticed a man from outside to go in and research for her; what he tracked down sent shudders through the spine of both of them, just as the whole city of Bethesda.
In the midst of the smears and puddles of blood, the man observed a female representative bound and injured, yet alive. Close by on the foyer floor was another lady, distorted by many cut injuries and obtuse power injury; she was dead.
The living lady (Brittany Norwood) was raced to the clinic, sorrowfully offering the earlier night’s occasions to the police and different examiners. She talked about two concealed men who coercively followed her and her associate into the store as they were returning to recover a failed to remember individual thing after store hours.
The two ladies were ruthlessly assaulted, beaten, and her associate Jayna Murray was killed. Norwood then, at that point, meticulously described the situation, let authorities know how she observed vulnerably as Murray was hauled by her hair, beaten, and manhandled.
Obviously, these occasions struck a lot of dread in the core of Bethesda; the upscale business region had not seen a brutal manslaughter in many years, and the possibility of such savage killers running wild started to negatively affect the nearby cafés and stores. Reconnaissance hopped, and certain individuals recruited guardians while they were out shopping or going to and from work.
Analysts started a quest for suspects, following a few impasse leads. A $150,000 reward was proposed to any individual who could help with catching the two men. In any case, as their pursuit continued, and criminological investigations started, a great deal of what Norwood had answered to them started to appear to be less and less practical.
The general population was stunned when occasions inside the examination took an intense turn and the apparently damaged casualty, Norwood herself, was captured and accused of first-degree murder.
What Really Happened
What truly prompted the horrendous viciousness that Friday night, March eleventh, may never be completely known. Some express that Murray had as of late blamed Norwood for taking some attire, which prompted a warmed contention that evening.
Lululemon is known to an enormous piece of general society as an organization that pushes harmony and acknowledgment, yet numerous who have worked there have an alternate perspective on it. While not the slightest bit a reason for the situation that unfolded that evening, some have conjectured that a thought process in Norwood’s activities was to prevent Murray from advising the organization of her endeavored robbery.
The thought is that she realized that the purportedly harmful and harsh culture of the organization would manage the fresh insight about her taking in a rash manner, and the best way to stop this was to deal with Murray herself.
During the preliminaries after her capture, Murray’s safeguard group guaranteed the assault was planned, while Norwood’s lawyer demands that the rough occurrence was just the aftereffect of the contention without even a moment’s pause. Regardless, Murray was the beneficiary of 331 injuries shifting from wounds, to squashed bones, to profound effect wounds and a cut off spinal line.
The assault was completed with the store’s upkeep instruments like mallets, utility blades, and a variety of other hardware. Assessments showed that Murray was no doubt alive for practically the entirety of the attack.
As the assault continued, the representatives of the nearby Apple store heard some hollering and surprisingly shouting, however never thought to be that it was pretty much as genuine as it went out to really be. The representatives of the Apple store went under extreme investigation when video observation was set free from inside the apple store, showing them remaining close to the divider nearest to the Lululemon, paying attention to the clamors coming from the store.
During the preliminary, one of the representatives who was available at the hour of the homicide clarified their thinking for not minding the circumstance or basically referring to the police as trusting the entirety of the commotion and hollering as “Just dramatization”. Judge Robert Greenberg portrayed the conduct of the Apple representatives as “Insensitive detachment”.
Among the commotions of crashing and yelling, two expressions hung out specifically:
• “Converse with me. Try not. Converse with me. What’s happening?”
Then, at that point, after some really shouting and time had elapsed:
• “Lord have mercy on me… if it’s not too much trouble, help me.”
Those are accepted to be the last expressions of Jayna Murray.
Arranging the Crime Scene
Following the wrongdoing, Norwood put forth a valiant effort to organize a “burglary turned sour”; she made horrendous impressions with men’s shoes from the store (the shoes were subsequently found by the police). She then, at that point, caused a couple of minor scratches and injuries for herself prior to tying herself up with some zip-ties in the restroom. The ridiculous crime location gave them every one of the clues that they expected to show that something was exceptionally amiss with her story.
The last piece of proof that specialists had the option to go up against Norwood with that prompted the reality of the situation was blood in her vehicle. They asked her how it would have arrived in the event that she were truly attacked and restricted in the store. Thinking rapidly, she said that the two men constrained her to move her vehicle during the assault. Whenever inquired as to why she didn’t make a move to get away, she had no response.
The Lululemon Murder has certainly tracked down its place among the rundown of world well known crime locations, and the decision was just about as serious as the demonstration. In January of 2012, after a progression of preliminaries, Judge Robert A. Greenberg condemned Brittany Norwood to life in jail without any shot at parole.
Furthermore consequently, the Lululemon Murder was shut, setting the killer in a correctional facility always, and passing on the family and life partner of Jayna Murray to grieve over the demise of their cherished one.
