Dystynee Avery’s Murder Was Committed by Ethan Broad
In April, Dystynee Avery was found dead in her home. Police believe that Broad dismembered her body and disposed of her body parts in dumpsters. But Broad says he did it in self-defense, and he did not kill her intentionally. Investigators found blood-stained tools and a blue tote bin in his garage. There was also surveillance video of Broad dragging the blue bin into the garage.
Dystynee Avery was 19 years old when she was last seen. Her death has shocked her family. Her friends are distraught over the news. Her mother, Doreen, wants justice for her daughter’s death. The family wants to know who is responsible for her death and whether she can get restitution for the crime.
Police say that Broad had two friends who helped him commit the crime. The suspects are being held on a $1 million bond. However, the accused have not entered a plea to the charges. They face a long time in prison. The suspects are accused of killing Dystynee Avery with a lead pipe and dumping her body in a dumpster outside the apartment building.
Andrea Payne was sitting near the crime scene when it happened. Dystynee Avery was a 19-year-old roommate of Andrea Payne. It is unclear whether she knew about the murder until she witnessed it. The victim’s body was dismembered and found in a dumpster. Eventually, Ethan Broad was arrested and charged with second-degree murder.
The remains of Dystynee Avery were found in the Clay County landfill a few days after Avery went missing. She was living with Broad when she was vulnerable and felt that she had no other choice. Dystynee’s sister, Doreen Broad, had been communicating with her daughter every day, but she suddenly stopped talking to her for days. When she finally spoke to the police, she said, “Dystynee was dead. When I saw her body, I immediately recognized her as dead.” The defendant, Ethan Broad, had admitted to dismembering Avery’s body and disposed of it in dumpsters.
Broad has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, which carries a maximum penalty of 40 years. He admitted to hitting Avery in the head with a pipe, cutting her throat and then dismembering her body with a saw in his garage. Broad also disposed of the body parts in dumpsters around his apartment complex. Broad’s sentencing is scheduled for later this month.
The case is far from over, as the accused killed her roommate. She was killed by Broad and another man, Brandon Everett Leroy Erbstoesser. They had previously pleaded guilty to murder and attempted murder. The trial was held in May, but the trial has not yet concluded.
