A Nevada woman taken into custody in connection to the murder of her ex-husband told investigators during questioning that she is a medium who sees spirits, authorities said in an arrest report.
On Jan. 14 shortly after 8 p.m., police responded to a home in Las Vegas, where they found the victim dead in the backyard from gunshot wounds to the chest and head.
According to an arrest report obtained by KLAS-TV, the victim’s daughters said their father had just returned from grocery shopping and one of them was going to help him unload bags.
When she went outside, the arrest report states, she saw her father’s van and the car of her mother, Emily Rose Ezra, 40. She then heard three loud bangs she said sounded like gunshots.
The daughter shut the garage door, went inside the home and locked the door before calling 911. One daughter reported seeing her mother’s car fleeing the scene, according to the report.
One of the daughters claimed to investigators that Ezra, who also went by the name Taneicia Lee Ezra, owned a firearm and had recently threatened her father and spray-painted a van, according to the report.
The daughters told police they lived with the victim following his split with their mother, who, one claimed to police, was allegedly “unstable” and off her medication at the time of the shooting.
Once in custody, the report states, Ezra told North Las Vegas police detectives she was a medium who saw spirits, and, during questioning, she claimed to sense the presence of one who alternated between standing with his hands in his pockets and leaning against a wall.
Ezra was arrested and booked into Clark County Detention Center on an open murder with a deadly weapon charge.
