Ashleigh Lindsey, and her unborn daughter, Patience, died Friday July 13th, 2012 in Kingston, Oklahoma. Ashleigh, who was four months pregnant, was fatally shot by her 29 year-old former boyfriend,... Joshua Mahaffey. Ashleigh had dated Mahaffey just six months but ended the relationship after he began abusing her and became violent. As she broke free, and authorities sought to arrest Mahaffey for domestic assault and battery, he managed to evade them, yet continued to threaten and stalk Ashleigh and even enlisted the help of a friend, Joshua Scott, to help him do it. Ashleigh sought help from the police, from a domestic violence program, was granted a protective order, and also changed her phone numbers and tried to move around to try to avoid him.
On the day of Ashleigh's death, Mahaffey's friend, Joshua Scott, fatally shot his mother's 43 year-old boyfriend, Chad Page, stole his car, then drove to pick Mahaffey up and, together, they headed to Ashleigh's home. Around 2 pm, as Ashleigh was preparing to work one final shift before entering a domestic violence shelter, both men broke into her home, one coming in the front door, the other through the back door. Mahaffey shot her twice with the same gun his friend used earlier to kill Page. He then killed himself. Tragically, Ashleigh, and her baby, died that night at a hospital. Ashleigh loved music, singing, dancing, acting and fishing.
Joshua Scott has been arrested and faces multiple charges related to all three deaths. He may face the death penalty.
