MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Pictures of torn up and bloodied police uniform are among the hundreds of images taken by crime scene investigators inside the home of Miami Police Officer Carl Patrick.
Investigators said it was his live-in girlfriend Tiniko Thompson who killed him in May, shooting him in the arm, wrapping him in a comforter and leaving him to die in his Pembroke Pines home.READ MORE: CDC Releases New Guidelines For Trial Cruises
Documents previously obtained exclusively by CBS4 News revealed the details about the couple’s troubled relationship including allegations of a fake pregnancy, credit card fraud and ultimately murder.
New pictures, released by the Broward State Attorney’s Office, show what investigators found inside the home. They reveal a bloody scene and the blanket Thompson allegedly wrapped Patrick in after shooting him.
A note written on the back of a lottery ticket read, in part, “We had a fight. We struggle with gun. So please know that I was scared to call the police.”
Another note read, “It was an accident. We had a fight.”
In an interview with a local television station, and released as part of discovery in the case, Thompson claimed the two struggled and that she shot him in self defense.
Also found inside the home was the number to a DNA center. Thompson allegedly told Patrick she was pregnant and he wanted a DNA test to prove the baby was his.READ MORE: South Florida Streets Packed For Cinco De Mayo, First Big Holiday Since Governor Lifted Local COVID Restrictions
In text messages, Thompson not only spoke about being pregnant but she sent a picture of what she claimed was her “big belly.” She also had pregnancy jeans and baby items at the Pembroke Pines home she shared with Patrick and inside a storage unit.
But as it turned out, the pregnancy was fake – by Thompson’s own admission when questioned by investigators following Patrick’s murder.
According to documents, Patrick asked Thompson to move out after he brought home a pregnancy test and forced her to take it.
Thompson allegedly ran up thousands of dollars in bills on Patrick’s credit cards before he died and Patrick threatened to report her to police.
