No, I'm not making this up. When you think about it, it does seem like a murder that a teenage girl would be involved in, I guess. But still.... a weave? Really?
Eighteen year old Shelby Issac from Memphis and her friend Victoria Seay had been going to the online hair accessory store, VirginHair4Us for her hair weaves for quite some time and seemed to genuinely like the owner, EJ Tate and his pregnant girlfriend, Edwina Thomas.
On January 22 of 2016 Shelby and Victoria went to the Sycamore Lake Apartments in Memphis Tennessee where EJ and Edwina were sitting in a parked car. Shelby opened fire upon them shooting both several times. She then went through their belongings and stole several bundles of hair valued at near $250. She jumped back in the car with Victoria driving and the two sped off.
EJ died on the scene. Edwina was rushed to the hospital where both she and her unborn child died. Police were able to garner much information from the witnesses and eventually tracked the two women down at 4000 Covington Pike. Victoria was arrested there but Shelby ran. She was finally caught the following Friday and arrested. She was charged with three counts of murder.
