It looks like drugs were to blame in the death of Deanna Stires, who was found wrapped in plastic and stuffed into a trunk several weeks ago. It was reported on Thurs., Jan. 31, 2013 that a man was arrested after confessing to killing the 18-year-old girl, and the details he gave officials completely validates all of my past speculation about the case. While it's absolutely horrific that this young girl died the way she did, it's fortunate that the man responsible has come forward and confessed so he can face responsibility for his actions. What's more: This case should certainly serve as a warning to all young people who want to experiment with drugs and a dangerous party lifestyle.
It was reminded on this Feb. 01, 2013 Gather News post that Byron Lee Boutin confessed to killing the 18-year-old Florida girl after using crystal meth with her and his wife for several days. Boutin claims that the girl stole his bag of dope and then "freaked out" until he pistol whipped her into submission. She was reportedly snoring and sweating profusely when he and his wife laid her down in a garage -- where she ultimately died. Her body was stuffed in the trunk, wrapped in plastic as this Examiner.Com report confirms.
It was reported from the beginning that Deanna Stires had a criminal record and was known to be a drug user and dealer as well as a thief with charges against her related to grand theft auto. The claims made by the man who killed her that she stole his crystal meth don't seem like they are very far fetched. It doesn't mean she deserved to be harmed in any way, but there is something to say about the lifestyle she led. I had said from the beginning that it was important to consider the possibility that drugs and partying led to her death -- that she either died of an overdose and someone hid her body to evade justice, or someone related to her partying lifestyle killed her. I was 100% right on both counts in that she was not only killed by someone she was doing copious amounts of drugs with, but it seems that this death was a tragic accident that ended in the hiding of her body.
In criminology, the study of victimological stats is absolutely important. That's because statistics indicate that certain lifestyle choices do in fact predispose victims. In other words, while men are most likely to be victims of violent crime than women, the lifestyle of drug abuse, sexualization and criminal behavior exposes either gender to heightened chances of becoming victims. Now that it is known for a fact that Deanna's lifestyle choices led to her demise, her story should now be shared as an example. If other young people know the statistics and the actual gruesome facts behind these lifestyle choices they will likely think things out more thoroughly before falling into the underground world of meth abuse and worse.
Those who refuse to understand and acknowledge the correlation between lifestyle choices and crime victimology may not only be dooming themselves to ignorance, but may be inadvertently complicit in the deaths of those they hold dear. Were there people who knew that this dangerous drug use was going on in her life with this much older man? If so, more people deserve to face charges. And guess what: Police say more arrests might be soon to come!
