Bryan Richardson Biography – Bryan Richardson Wiki
Bryan Richardson, 27, was accused of stabbing his wife and two children to death and then lying in bed with their bodies, police said. On December 12, Copperas Cove Police Department in central Texas said they found Richardson on a bed with the bodies of his wife, son and daughter, covered in blood, according to a criminal complaint obtained by KWTX.
The police department made a statement about the incident on their Facebook page. It was stated that the police officers responded to a welfare check call for a residence at 1300 block of Fairbanks Street at 21:32 on December 12. When they entered the house, they found “three dead people”. According to the statement, “The fourth person was found in the residence and was taken to the police headquarters for questioning.”
This person was later identified as Richardson. Authorities said the suspect was charged with three murders and is currently in prison for a $ 2.25 million bond.
In the criminal complaint received by KWTX, he stated that the police identified Richardson’s wife as Kiera Michelle Ware, but the children were identified only as “CR” and “BR”. Facebook photos show the couple has a son and a daughter. The complaint also stated that the welfare control call came from Ware’s brother.
KWTX wrote that when the police came home Ware’s brother was holding a flashlight at the house and “lighting a dark liquid on the floor.” Officers broke into the house and found “lots of blood on the kitchen and living room floors.” They also found a small dog in the pool of blood in the kitchen.
The officers then found a corner room with a locked door and “a large pool of blood on the ground just outside the door.” After breaking in, they found Richardson in bed with three bodies of his family members, KWTX reported. The complaint showed that a boy named “BR” was sleeping next to his mother and wrapped in a blanket. The other, “CR”, was next to his brother and was covered in a duvet.
The police department said the investigation was ongoing and anyone who had information about the case was called to call the Copperas Cove Police Department at 254-547-8222 or the Copperas Cove Crime Stoppers at 254-547-1111.
In the criminal complaint, KWTX stated that Richardson told the officers he did not know what happened. It was also stated that the officers found a blood-covered kitchen knife on a table with six packs of empty beer and an empty pill bottle for Trazodone, a prescription antidepressant. Officers also said that Richardson had three cuts on his left arm and that he hurt them himself.
During the reservation process, Richardson was asked on a form whether he was worried about losing his job, wife or custody of his children, and told officers, “I’ve already lost all of this,” according to KWTX. Richardson’s Facebook page shows that he works at the vitamin and supplement shop GNC and is originally from Virginia.
According to Ware’s Facebook page, he and Richardson got married in 2015, and they both often shared photos of their children. The school district said the oldest child was in kindergarten at Mae Stevens Early Learning Academy. “Our hearts were broken with this tragedy, especially at this time of the year,” Rhonda Burnell, the region’s director of behavioral support, told KWTX.
