Unsealed Warrants Show Motive In Murder Of Marine Wife Brittany Killgore (Video)

Marine Wife Brittany Killgore Murder Warrants Unsealed

Unsealed search warrants in the murder case of Camp Pendleton Marine wife Brittany Killgore show jealousy as a possible motive in the crime.

San Diego television station Fox 5 outlines the gruesome details of Killgore's death in the video posted above.

Facing first degree murder charges in the death of Killgore are Camp Pendleton Marine Staff Sgt. Louis Ray Perez, 45, Jessica Lynn Lopez, 25, and Dorothy Grace Marie Maraglino, 36. All three suspects have pleaded not guilty.

I think it's important to remember that Killgore - just 22-years-old when she died - was someone's daughter, sister, and wife. Not just a murder victim. I'm reprinting the statement her estranged husband, Marine Lance Cpl. Cory Killgore, released through the San Diego County Sheriff's Homicide Detail back in April:

My wife Brittany, was beautiful beyond words and her murder has left me devastated. My duty to her memory is now to ensure her good reputation remains intact, and help law enforcement and prosecutors secure justice for the person, or persons who took her away from me.

Brittany's death cannot be in vain – at this point, I don't know how to use this tragedy for good, but others have found their way and I hope to do the same. Brittany meant too much to do any less.

As my father-in-law said, please honor my wife's name and don't succumb to salacious gossip and rumor. Brittany was a beautiful, good person, who did not deserve this.

Thank you

"As my father-in-law said, please honor my wife's name and don't succumb to salacious gossip and rumor. Brittany was a beautiful, good person, who did not deserve this."

No one "deserves" to be murdered. But this pat statement from the father and the information in other media point to the fact that she associated with some very unsavory people.
