Seventy-four stab wounds: those are some of the injuries inflicted on a female soldier from Houston, in her own barracks. The new information comes as her alleged murderer, a fellow soldier, is claiming he suffered from temporary insanity.
“I had to know. I had to see just what this man did to my daughter,” said Verona Fonteneaux. Her daughter, 28-year old Army Specialist Brandy Fonteneaux, was stabbed and choked in her room at Fort Carson in Colorado on January 8.
Plenty of moms would leave it at that. But Verona Fonteneaux needed to know. Everything. So she sat down alone. Read the autopsy report. Watched the video of her daughter’s body being picked apart by the pathologist.
“It’s disgusting, it’s heartbreaking,” Verona Fonteneaux told FOX 26 News in an exclusive interview. “I mean, it kept me in the bed for like four days.”
The autopsy says Brandy died from multiple sharp force injuries. Army Sgt. Vincinte Jackson is facing a court martial for the crime. Jackson has reportedly confessed, saying he suffered a psychotic break after a night of drinking and entered the unlocked room where Fonteneaux lay sleeping.
“He stood by her bed and he touched it and that’s what startled her and woke her up,” said the victim’s mother. “And he just started stabbing her. She tried to break away, but — just too many wounds.”
