Houston, TX: Woman admits to killing boyfriend inside north Houston apartment

HOUSTON – Police say a woman who’d been arrested for shooting and killing her husband is responsible for the death of a man inside her apartment in north Houston early Saturday.

Linda Darnice Dorsey, 55, has been charged with murder in the case.

According to HPD, Dorsey called police around 10 a.m. Saturday and told officers she’d found her boyfriend unresponsive on her living room floor.

Police investigated and determined the victim, 64-year-old Harold Lewis Bacon, had been murdered after they found a gunshot wound to his head.

On Sunday, Dorsey told authorities she’d killed Bacon after he showed up to her apartment around 1 a.m. on Saturday. Dorsey told officers she waited nine hours to call police because she wanted to be with Bacon.

But police discovered Dorsey had used the time to try and clean up the crime scene and hide the gun, which officers eventually located.

Harold Bacon’s roommate, Terry Alexander, says he tried to warn Bacon about Linda Dorsey, who was convicted back in 1985 for shooting and killing her husband.

“Word on the street she had done this before,” said Terry Alexander. “I had talked to him time and time again about staying away from her. I guess Friday he broke it off and she couldn’t accept it.”

Friends say Bacon had had his own trouble with the law but had straightened out his life. He had become someone they could depend on.

“When I had a problem, I’d call him,” said Evelyn Brown, Bacon’s family friend. “I can’t call him now.”
