VA- Man police say is behind murder-suicide had criminal history

Posted in Related Deaths
6-3-2009 Virginia:

Other than a strip of crime tape, there’s no sign of the murder-suicide police say happened behind the G & S Mart in the Motley area of Pittsylvania County Tuesday afternoon.

Many are talking about David Pippin, 46, and his past criminal record.

Police believe Pippin shot and killed his ex-girlfriend Norma Henley, 36, before turning the gun on himself.

Pippin is a registered sex offender. He was convicted of a sex crime over ten years ago.

He just recently updated his sex registry profile to include the address of his home off Powell Road in Atlavista.

Henley, who lived about a mile from the store at the Timber Ridge Mobile Home Park, filed an assault charge against him just last month.

We have learned Henley was working at the store before the shooting. She walked outside behind the store to a burn pile, like she often did during her shift. Detectives think Pippin was waiting for her.

Police have yet to figure out how Pippin got to the store. Investigators are searching trails that back up to the store’s property for his car.

Now, the woman who was awaiting her day in court against Pippin will never have the chance. ..Source.. by Lindsey Henley, WSLS10 Reporter
