Woman Shoots Mask Wearing Intruder Threatening Son With Knife, Later Learns He’s a Kid Who Used to Sleep Over

Imagine you step into your son’s bedroom after he’s gone to sleep, expecting him to be asleep. While he is asleep. standing over him is a man with a knife, wearing a mask that looks like this:


I think you’d do the same thing Heather Tackett did. She eliminated the threat:

An Ohio woman shot dead a masked intruder after she found him standing over her sleeping son with a knife in his hands, only to discover later that the victim had been her son’s childhood friend.

Reb Barbee, 17, from Prairie Township in Franklin County, was pronounced dead from a gunshot wound to the back Sunday after he broke into the home of Heather Tackett in the middle of the night.

Police have arrested three teenagers on charges of murder and complicity to aggravated burglary.

The three teens were charged with murder because they didn’t take Reb to the hospital and he died as a result of a crime they were involved in.

Tackett is overwhelmed with grief:

‘I am devastated,’ Tackett said. ‘I really liked that kid and I was really good to him, and it breaks my heart he’d enter my home like that.’

There’s no mention if Reb and his accomplices are fans of the Insane Clown Posse, also known as Juggalos, but the mask he was wearing was of one of the two rappers.

The Juggalos are considered a criminal organization.
