Career criminal Tafari Duffers has already been written up once by JNS blog, and it was just about a year ago that it happened, click here, when he was sitting in jail charged with robbery. Those charges were still pending against Duffers while he was out on the streets, committing more bad deeds, allegedly.
The latest criminal complaint against Duffers reads like a script from a Quentin Tarantino movie...
Police say a woman with the initials AJ (who is NOT the stripper baby mama in this story) called 911 to report her boyfriend had collapsed and was having a seizure. Turns out the boyfriend had a fractured skull and pressure on his brain from bleeding. He'd been beaten at the Epic nightclub, possibly with a bottle. The victim had to be put into a medically induced coma and holes were drilled in his skull to reduce the pressure.
The victim knew his attacker as a guy who may be nicknamed "Killer." Luckily, the incident was caught on videotape. Killer was mad because there had been an incident where Killer's gun was stolen, and Killer felt the victim was to blame. "Killer" was determined to be Tafari Duffers.
Police wanted to find Duffers and got information Duffers had a child by a dancer (the complaint apparently means "stripper") at Augie's who went by the name "Exotica," but whose real name is Kelshanacy Scott. The criminal complaint isn't entirely clear how Scott even comes into the story, but it appears the police may have played a hunch and found Duffers at Scott's address.
My favorite line in the criminal complaint is as follows:
"Police observed the defendant give their unmarked squad car a hard look, and then got up and ran into the building."
So many of these criminal complaints sacrifice expressiveness for a legalistic factual litany, but not this one.
A "hard look?" I love it.
The complaint lists Duffers' address as 3228 Humboldt Ave. N.
Unfortunately, that address simply does not exist. Maybe that is the "stripper name" of another real address somewhere else?
