The Trench Reynolds Report

Without truth there is no justice

For a while now craigslist has been described as the ‘Wild West’ of the internet. I think this story drives that point home better than most.

On New Year’s Eve 41-year-old Robin Smith, of Fresno, California, was stabbed to death, but was she a victim or an aggressor?

The man who killed her claims that he met Smith through craigslist regarding an ad for what the ABC 30 article calls companionship. The man also claims that Smith began asking for money and then Smith’s boyfriend allegedly attacked the man. The man then claims he stabbed Smith in self-defense. Fresno police are saying that the man is cooperating with police.

While we don’t know for sure I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention how much this sounded like a prostitution deal gone south. Does that mean Smith deserved to be stabbed to death? It’s hard to say at this time.

In true Wild West fashion there are no ‘good guys’ in this story but what led to her death remains to be seen.
