23-year-old Darlene Haynes of Worcester, Mass, was found brutally slain in the closet of her apartment. Her body was found by her landlord, who was investigating a foul smell coming from her apartment. Haynes had apparently been dead for days. Haynes had three children, Jasmine (4) and Lilliana (3) lived with their grandmother, the third little girl, Christina, lived with Darlene.
In June of 2009, Haynes took out a restraining order against her boyfriend, Roberto Rodriguez. Police questioned the 24-year-old man, who was reportedly the last person to see her alive on July 23rd. (Despite the restraining order!) Police have not named his as a suspect.
