Many are speculating as to why Brittany Norwood may have killed Jayna Murray. You’ve heard of pop psychology with everyone having just enough knowledge of psychology to be dangerous. Well, that is what is happening here. We’ve all watched too many TV shows and movies, and are trying to figure out the motive. Perhaps we should leave it to the professionals, but we just can’t help ourselves.
Many of us can’t imagine that anything business-related at a yoga clothing store would have brought about such a violent murder. Like many, I wondered if there was a sexual relationship between the women, or if it was jealousy over a man. From what I am hearing locally, Jayna had a long time boyfriend who she had dated for 5 years. They had even discussed marriage, so it does not appear that either of these two motives would be true in this case. I’m sure these two motives are disturbing to Jayna’s family and boyfriend, so we should all stop discussing them.
The other motive people are talking about is that Jayna knew about Brittany stealing from the store. Let’s face it, with the recession we are still recovering from, there are a lot of folks with unpaid parking tickets, and people struggling to pay their mortgage or rent. Not everyone with financial issues turns to stealing and other illegal activities. Many times, people with plenty of money will steal from stores, just look at Lindsay Lohan and Winona Rider.
That said, with the other two motives pretty much ruled out, it does seem that motive must be work-related. I feel like if Jayna had discovered something, she would likely inform her manager right away, before confronting Brittany. Having worked in retail, I know that there are HR and legal procedures that you follow. It seems more likely to me that Jayna caught Brittany in the middle of something illegal on the night of the murder — not before. I’m wondering if Jayna didn’t return to the store — not to meet Brittany — but to see if she was still there, or if she went back, and to see what she was up to. This would explain the loud argument heard at the Apple store.
According to one of my readers who commented in my first article with Brittany Norwood’s Facebook photo:
Well. I happen to be the hairstylist to Btittany and the pic here that quite frankly does tell a better story about who Brittany was on the surface. She was my regular client and as the earlier person said she came from a very loving family. However the accusations about her character has validity… In this picture Brittany had not paid for this hairdo. She ordered imported hair and received a full weave… At the end of her service she claimed that someone in the salon had stolen her money out of her wallet. I was devastaed that this could happen at my workplace so I immediately told her not to worry about payment. As the time went on Brittany called me to say that she would bring the Money for the hair in…. She never showed up with the money and later deleted me from her facebook page. I was totally embarassed because I assured the owner of the salon that she would be back with payment but never showed up. After doing Brittany’s hair for about 4 or 5 years and developing a close relationship with her I never expected this . She seemed to be a very nice and determined young lady with a huge future. So I am in total disbelief and need to follow this story so that I can have closure. As for Brittany… I think whatever punishment should come with some psychological help and that my prayers are with both families because getting over this whole ordeal will not be an easy FEAT!
So, it does appear that Brittany may have had a history of stealing.
