‘Killing Fields’ Season Three Finale: “The Arrest”
Last night’s season three finale of Killing Fields centered around the arrest of Trabion Tynes. After checking various sources it looks like Carrie Singer’s case is still unsolved. Although there have been many promising leads and many hopeful moments among the detectives, so far all of the suspects’ DNA has not been a match for Singer’s killer.
The detectives have questioned the prison inmate but so far nothing has helped them. To refresh readers memories on this season of Killing Fields, Johnnie Tynes Sr. was bludgeoned to death a few days before Carrie Singer was found murdered.
Witnesses said they had seen her at Johnnie’s place. Earlier in the season, detectives near the Hampton, Virginia area thought both murders were connected. However, through crime scene photos and blood-soaked pillowcase detectives surmised Johnnie was having sex with someone when he was killed.
Trabion called and then met with detectives to fish for information about his father’s case. He put the blame on someone else. Detectives felt that Trabion was hiding something. After questioning various witnesses, Trabion’s alibi fell apart. His wife Shameka finally came forth to corroborate the rumors on the street. She was having an affair with her father in law Johnnie Tynes Sr.
Shameka says her husband Trabion would beat her for the slightest offense. She sought solace in her father-in-law and things just happened. Trabion caught his father in bed with his wife and murdered him with a sledgehammer in a jealous rage.
Last night on Killing Fields, the team swarmed the trailer where Trabion lived and arrested him. He was arrested in September 2017 and has been indicted on murder charges. The police have arrested him different times in the past but this time witnesses and evidence helped make the charges stick. His mother Gloria believes he is innocent and wants him released. Still no justice for Carrie Singer.
No word yet on a season four for Killing Fields on Discovery Channel.
