The First 48 on Killers Fitzgerald and Holmes

It may be one of the most sobering pieces of news footage on television last night, A&E's "The First 48" crime documentary coverage of the murder of Oscar Alvarado Chavez.


Screen Grab from "The First 48"

Watch the entire episode titled "One Last Score" here.

Crime documentaries are normally far removed from Charlotte and the viewer is often unmoved and unconcerned. But to actually see Danielle Holmes and Jonathan Fitzgerald arrested and questioned, and eventually charged in the murder of Oscar Alvarado Chavez is about as surreal as it can get.

And nothing more graphically shows just how fast heroin can ruin a life than a comparison of Danielle Holmes' North Carolina drivers license at 16 to her mug shot taken less than 14 months apart.

As usual thanks Cedar for reporting the facts of this case...something the Charlotte Observer has a hard time doing!

Maybe she was fed all of that bullshit about how bad pot is by some DARE nazi, she smoked some, and corectly concluded that it was indeed harmeless.

Then she was offered heroin, and perhaps thought if the DARE nazi from CMPD lied to me about weed, he most likely lied to me about other drugs to.

The dead girl from Concord most likely fell into the same trap. Thanks officers

Holmes admits that she slashed the dudes throat, that will kill a mexican every time.

Hope she likes prison life I expect she'll be in for a while, easy pickings for the dikes and other freaks.

All for one last score.

She got pregnant by some black guy when she was out on bail for murder and her family is now raising the baby. She got arrested again when she was on bail for another robbery.

Her BF had ONE arrest- for underage drinking- and was STILL man enough to take the whole rap, telling the pigs his girl didn't do anything. But that wasn't enough- they went right back at some scared, dopesick little girl & TRICKED her into putting herself in the pot for murder. "I WANT A LAWYER".... The ONLY 4 words you EVER need to know if u find yourself in a police station interrogation room- guilty OR innocent. They ARE NOT your friends at that point... ALL they want is a confession

You're all so pathetic. You didn't know her. She was someone with a life just as much as the rest of you but honestly probably ten times smarter. Drugs turn you into a different person and make you do things you thought you never would. She isn't a bad person and you're all pretty sad for saying those nasty things about her. You must hate yourselves so much to need to put your two cents on here about someone you never knew. How dare you speak about her or her family INCLUDING HER SON the way you do. You don't have any clue what you would do if she was your daughter or sister or friend so don't act like you have any right to comment on what happened. Have some fucking respect for them.
