Posted on September 7, 2016

[UPDATE 9/7/16: RICHMOND, Va. — The man wanted for killing his son, and shooting his ex-wife inside a Norlina, North Carolina home Tuesday morning is dead, according to Norlina Police Chief Taylor Bartholomew. WTVR-TV CBS 6 article and video here]

North Carolina police are hunting for a dad who killed his 15-year-old son, critically wounded his ex-wife and then used Facebook to live-broadcast his pompous confession.

“What’s up everybody? I just killed my (expletive) wife,” Earl Valentine said in his early Tuesday admission video. “I loved my wife, but she deserved what she had coming.”

Valentine called police after the grisly attack inside his ex-wife’s Norlina home and told them he was on his way to Richmond, Va., to kill more family members.

Media reports indicate Valentine owns, or owned, a limousine company in North Carolina, but LCT could not immediately verify the correct name, location, and operational status of his company from conflicting sources. Valentine's Facebook page shows multiple friend connections to operators throughout the limousine industry.
