A man’s remains were eaten by mountain lions–now investigators’ reports say the man’s companion said he left him injured–to die along the Pima Canyon Trail.
The reports from Pima County Sheriff’s detectives do not make it clear precisely how Steven Mark Brashear died but add detail to his connection to Daylan Jacob Thornton. He’s charged with murdering Brashear.
Just before New Year’s Eve, hikers found Brashear’s body near the Pima Canyon Trail. His remains had been partially eaten by mountain lions. An autopsy concluded the lions did not kill Brashear–that he was already dead when the animals found him.
At first Daylan Thornton was charged with stealing Brashear’s car. After months of investigation, Pima Sheriff’s Detectives charged Thornton with killing Brashear.
Reports say in December, Thornton and Brashear drove from Oklahoma to the Tucson area where Thornton said he would visit his family.
Brashear was going through a divorce and wanted to get away for a while.
But Thornton said he was angry that Brashear didn’t talk to him on the trip and instead devoted his time in the car to Grindr, a gay dating app.
At first, Thornton told deputies soon after the pair arrived in Tucson, Brashear went off on a date and Thornton never saw him again. Later, he admitted that did not happen and they went to the Pima Canyon Trail.
He says there, Brashear either fell or jumped off a cliff. Thornton said Brashear was suicidal over his divorce though family members said he had taken it well.
Thornton said Brashear was badly hurt and called for help. But Thornton said he did not help him. Detectives say instead, Thornton met with an ex-boyfriend, then arranged a roughly 2 a.m. date through Grindr.
this is the part…
Detectives say he told them he regards sex as a stress reliever and said, “I guess it was my way of grieving.”
that is a thing.
for some folks,
grieving can make you horny.
…although i feel in this case,
daylan seems to be a full-blown psychopath.
why were they even at a trail tho?
this all seems like a setup.
bad enough he went back to the trail to move the phone to another location.
just bring your own handcuffs to the police station.
lowkey: killing someone in 2020 is no easy task.
our phones literally tell our every move and nothing ever dies on the internet.
you think you erased something,
but it’s still on your phone.
not only that,
the f-bi will solve the crime.
