The newly released documents reveal details about the couple’s sordid final days and allegations of a fake pregnancy, credit card fraud and ultimately murder.
In June of 2013, Miami Police Officer Carl Patrick told a friend that he was breaking up with Thompson, the friend told police.
According to the documents, obtained exclusively by CBS4’s Cary Codd, “Patrick was then told by Thompson that she was pregnant. Patrick then asked Thompson to move into his house while she was pregnant. He told (his friend) that he was going to get a DNA test to prove that the baby was his.”
Months passed and people got suspicious about Tiniko’s pregnancy. One of Patrick’s family members wondered why there was no baby by April 2014. Patrick told them, “The doctor had gotten the birth date wrong,” according to documents.
In fact, there was no baby. In her statement to police after her arrest in May for Patrick’s murder Thompson admitted it.
A detective asked her, “What happened with the pregnancy? When were you pregnant. When were you not pregnant?” Thompson replied,” There’s no pregnancy. He wanted to adopt.”
Court documents released Thursday show that Thompson sent pictures of her supposedly pregnant self to a co-worker and talked openly about her pregnancy.

Documents say, “Patrick told (the friend) that he did not think Thompson was pregnant. Patrick told (the friend) that he brought home a home pregnancy test and demanded that Thompson take it. She did and it was negative. Patrick then told Thompson that she needed to move out.”
There was more anger between the couple.
Documents show that another friend of Patrick’s said Thompson ran up thousands of dollars in bills on Patrick’s credit card in the days before he died. The friend told police about it.
“Patrick threatened to go to Miami Police Internal Affairs and to the local police to report Thompson for credit card fraud. He told (the friend) he did this on Monday, May 5th. Patrick told Thompson to move out or he would report her,” according to documents.
That was one day before police believe Thompson shot Patrick in the upper right arm, wrapped him in a comforter, took his cellphone and left him to die in his home.
Thompson said Patrick threatened her with a gun and the pair struggled over the weapon before it went off, killing Patrick.
Tiniko Thompson’s statement to police which CBS4 reported on exclusively in August is also included in the documents.
She told police that Patrick hit her and threatened her with a gun and she was forced to defend herself. Police said she did have cuts and bruises on her in the days after the shooting.
Her attorney wants that statement thrown out of court and is also asking for the charges against her to be dropped under the stand your ground defense.
