Lovers Shot To Death While Having Sex


( 4UMF NEWS ) Lovers Shot To Death While Having Sex:

A man and a woman in the thick of a lovers tryst Friday were repeatedly shot in the head at a Philly park by an assailant who had an “obvious” beef with their relationship, authorities said.

The victims, Shakoor Arline, 25, and Lisa Smith, 32, were dating each other on-the-side of their respective relationships, Philadelphia Police Capt. James Clark revealed Monday.

“I can tell you from the crime scene it appears to be very much a crime of passion,” Clark told reporters at a media briefing. “Somebody knew that they were in the park at that time and obviously had an issue with that.”

A maintenance crew collecting trash at Fairmount Park were first to find their bullet-riddled bodies in the back of a parked SUV around 2 p.m. Friday.

Arline was naked while Smith was partially undressed.

At some point between midnight and 5 a.m., the shooter stepped up to the vehicle as the couple had sex, opened the rear door and fired at least nine shots striking Arline and Smith in the head.

A friend of Arline knew of the couple’s on-and-off again relationship and said Arline considered moving to Arizona to be with Smith.

“He did not deserve to die like this,” Eric Thomason told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The couple met on the job Arline previously held. He most recently worked at a mechanic’s shop where relatives say he failed to show up Friday.

A person of interest has not been identified in their deaths.
