Brave Souls: Kenyatta Barron & Ron'Niveya ONeal

Just before midnight on March 18th, 2018, deputies from the Hillsborough County sheriff's officer responded to a series of 911 calls from Pike Lake Drive, in Riverview, Florida.


Moments after a woman had called pleading for help as she had been shot, another call had come from the house, the male caller told the dispatcher;


“Hey, I just been attacked by some white demon…inside… Was inside. Keke, Keke, her name is Keke and she tried to kill me and I just killed her stupid ass.”


This is... Brave Souls.
