Nurse Confesses To Killing Ex-Girlfriend on Live Stream Before Killing Ex-Wife, Self
After killing former girlfriend Tara Labang, Rajaee Shareef Black complained about custody issues and allegations he molested his kids before murdering his ex-wife Wendy Natalie Black.
A nurse anesthetist from Maryland apparently confessed to killing his ex-girlfriend in a live stream directly before killing his ex-wife and then himself.
Rajaee Shareef Black, 44, of Hanover allegedly broke into an ex-girlfriend’s home in Baltimore on Saturday and then shot her to death. She has since been identified as Tara Labang, 41, the Baltimore Sun reports. Baltimore Police noted they found her dead inside her home that afternoon after a report of an alarm.
Less than an hour after Labang’s body was discovered, police in Columbia were called to another residence after reports of multiple gunshots, a press release from the Howard County Police states. When police arrived on the scene, they found both Black and his ex-wife, Wendy Natalie Black, 42, dead of gunshot wounds in the vestibule of an apartment building, police told reporters.
The Blacks’ two children were discovered nearby.
“Just after the shooting, police located the Blacks’ two young children unharmed in Rajaee Black’s car, a gray BMW X3, in the parking lot of the apartment complex where the shooting occurred,” police stated. “The children have been placed in a safe environment and did not witness the incident.”
Police in Howard County called the murder there a “domestic-related murder-suicide” in a presser. They noted that there was a “social media” post in the form of a video.
Rajaee Black apparently created a Facebook Live video while traveling from Baltimore to Howard County between the two killings in which he expressed anger about custody issues with both women, the Baltimore Sun reports. In at least part of that video, he apparently stood in front of the apartment building where both he and his ex-wife’s bodies were found.
“I just shot my ex-girlfriend in the head,” he said in the video as he stood by the building, according to the Baltimore Sun. “Felt like a dream. I never thought I would be that guy. I can’t go to prison, so the person that really started my depression and all of this is my ex-wife. So, she next. Then I’m going to do myself too.”
Wendy Black, who also worked as a certified registered nurse anesthetist, then seemingly opened the door of the building and he said “today’s the day" before running towards her. At that point, the video stopped.
In the footage, he also apparently claimed he was accused of molesting his children, People reports.
Rajaee and Wendy Black had been in and out of court over custody of their children since the summer of 2018, according to the Baltimore Sun. The outlet noted that the filings had come at a rate of nearly one each month, and the most recent one had been filed last week.
Rajaee Black was also accused of domestic violence multiple times, including as recently as last year. Several of the charges had been dismissed shortly after being filed, the Baltimore Sun reports.
