Cicely Bolden could’ve never guessed that her honesty would get her killed, but on September 6th that all changed.
In Dallas, Texas, Larry Dunn, Jr. and Cicely Bolden had recently started dating. On September 6th, Dunn went to Bolden’s house to visit. During the visit, things got hot and they had sex. After the sexual encounter, Bolden told Dunn she had HIV. Dunn was so upset, he went to the kitchen, retrieved a knife, and stabbed Bolden to death. He later told detectives, “She killed me, so I killed her.” Dunn told the detectives he burned his clothes and the the knife in a garbage dumpster at an Irving Waffle House. Investigators said that’s where they found what they believe to be the murder weapon.
The father of Cicely’s son, Jeff Busby, said Bolden had contracted HIV within the last couple of years. He said he currently has both her son and her daughter.
“They are doing okay, but asking a lot of questions,” he said.
Busby said Cicely remained one of his best friends.
“She was a sweet, sweet person,” he said.
Arnett said the same thing.
“She was a good mom. Loved her kids to death,” she said. “I can’t imagine my kids seeing me like that. I know it hurt them.”
Dunn is in custody on a $500,000 bond.
Though Dunn’s anger is understood, his actions were despicable. This should be taken as a lesson. Before having sex with someone, unprotected, know their status.
R.I.P to Cicely Bolden and may God watch over her children.
