Published

A Charlotte, North Carolina woman’s life came to an abrupt end one April morning in 2017. Around 7:00 a.m., police dispatch received a call of an assault in a quiet neighborhood. When they arrived, they found 50-year-old Marcella Thrash clinging to life. She had been stabbed, but before they could speak with her she died of her wound at the scene.

Her 26-year-old son, Dionte Marquel Long, was immediately taken to the station for questioning. It became apparent to police after interviewing Long that he was responsible for his mother’s death, so they arrested him.

He killed his mother just three days shy of his 27th birthday.

Neighbors couldn’t believe that something such as this could occur on their block. They noted that Long, who lived with his mother, occasionally behaved strangely, but they never thought he was capable of murder.

“I saw those crime neighborhood [watch signs], all the signs and I thought those were jokes, and now it kind of makes me want to be a part of that and take it a little more seriously,” said one neighbor.

“Hopefully, things like this don’t become a normal occurrence, we’ll do our part to make sure the neighborhood stays safe and secure,” said another.

It wasn’t as if Long was some sort of career criminal, either. The only incident he had on his record was a traffic ticket. Long has been charged with murder for his mother’s death.

As of October 2017: prosecutors have decided not to seek the death penalty in his case.
