Uwa kane ariwe Cynthia Douglas, 20, yarakomeretse ariko ararusimbuka nyuma y’uko yigize ko yapfuye. Ku rwikeko rw’umukunzi wa mushikiwe, igipolisi cyahagaritse uyu musore Strickland hanyuma bikavugwa ko bateye igitsure/ubwoba Douglas ko yamukura ku rutonde.

Strickland yabwiye igipolisi ko we yari yibereye imuhira areba televiziyo. Nta byemezo nyabyo byigeze byerekana ko yigeze agira uruhare muri ubu bukozi bw’ikibi. Urubanza rwe mu 1979 rwagumye mu kirere, nyuma y’aho umwe mu bacamanza w’umwirabura akomeje asaba ko yarekurwa.
