The Hurricane- Part II

So Zackery Bowen, 28, and Adriane “Addie” Hall, 30, lived together, faced adversity together, fought together, survived together, and loved together.

Reportedly on Oct. 1 the two put down a deposit on a new apartment and moved in. And reportedly on or about Oct. 5, Hall told the landlord that she had caught Bowen cheating on her. Reportedly later the same day, Bowen called him and angrily told him that Hall was kicking him out.

Friends say they saw Bowen on Oct. 16. He was eating, drinking and appeared to be in a good mood. Reportedly he told one that he intended to go on a vacation. Surveillence cameras recorded Bowen on Oct. 17 as he walked up to ledge at the eighth story bar. He looked over, then turned around and walked away. He repeated the action several times, before finally he jumped.

Police called to the scene found something in Bowenss pocket, a note carefully preserved in a plastic bag. The note led them to the apartment that Bowen had shared with Hall, and to another note.

Police found a deceased person in the apartment.  They are not confirming that it is Hall, stating that they will need to confirm identity through dental records or DNA. But though they have looked for Hall, they have not found her.  (if you have a tender stomache, you may wish to stop reading here).

Allegedly the deceased person had been dismembered, with the remains found in different spots in the kitchen. With the charred head found in a pot, her hands and feet were also in a pot. Allegedly there was also a pot containing chopped potatoes and carrots, though none had been put in with the cooked remains. In the oven were trays containing human legs and arms. Reportedly seasoning had been sprinkled on at least one of them.  The autopsy on Bowen showed no human remains in his system.

Again without police confirmation, the notes that Bowen reportedly left out lined what had occurred. He reportedly wrote that he had calmly strangled her on Oct. 5. And he reportedly thought it was strange that he felt no remorse. Further it is reported that Bowen wrote that after Hall was dead he sexually assaulted her remains several times. And that he had plans on how to dispose of her body. Then he allegedly felt that he had to pay for what he had done. He decided to ‘party it up’ on the money he had, then take his own life for what he had done.

Police are not saying that Bowen had any connections to any other crimes. But they are submitting the case information to the FBI, to be entered into a database for comparision to other unsolved murders.

It started in the midst of a hurricane and read like a romance novel. But the ending was more like the hurricane it sprang from.
