In the almost 16 years of this website I have believed that only three people who I’ve posted about were either wrongly convicted or arrested. I may now have a fourth.
Since that time all the counts of robbery in the first degree have been dropped as have three of the four murder in the second degree charges. Lentini has maintained that he killed Wimbert in self-defense stating that Wimbert kept trying to force himself upon the teen. Lentiti had a laceration of his own in his hand and yelled to neighbors to call 911 after fleeing the scene.
The only thing that keeps me from fully believing that Lentini acted in self-defense is the amount of stab wounds that Wimbert received and that was 24. Although with the robbery charges dropped I’m not seeing much of a motive for murder.
I’ll continue to keep an eye on this story for further details.
UPDATE 5/8/2016: Lentini recently gave a jailhouse interview claiming that Wimbert had raped him.
