I often watch shows like “Snapped” on Investigation Discovery and think that they seem so far from reality for me, until you see YouTube videos like this. This is real and uncut and makes it seem so much more of a possibility in one’s own life.
The fact that this grandmother shot her grandchild’s father in front of them in an attempt to murder him is disgustingly careless. That child loves her father despite whatever reason you had for disliking him, and taking his life is completely unjust. Thank goodness he was smart enough to catch you in the act, and that you had a pretty shitty aim and were unable to take him out.
DECEMBER 9–Anticipating a “confrontation” when he went to pick up his son Wednesday afternoon at his mother-in-law’s residence, a Florida man activated his iPhone’s video camera to record the handover of his three-year-old child.
As it turned out, Salvatore Miglino’s premonition proved to be accurate, as he was shot twice by Cheryl Hepner, the 66-year-old mother of Miglino’s wife (whom he is in the midst of divorcing). Miglino, 39, was shot in the shoulder and rib cage by a .22 Beretta brandished by Hepner, according to a probable cause affidavit.
Miglino’s iPhone–which appears to have initially been placed on the car’s front seat–recorded the sound of the gunshots and the aftermath of the shooting outside Hepner’s Tamarac home. “I can’t believe you did that!” Miglino yelled after being shot “What, are you crazy?” After Miglino apparently pinned her to the ground, Hepner said, “Get the fuck off me you son of a bitch.”
In a 911 call after the shooting, Hepner claimed that Miglino tried to kill her. “Somebody just shot at me,” she told a police operator. She described her alleged assailant as a “son of a bitch” who was involved in a “horrible divorce” with her daughter.
Miglino, breathing heavily, also called 911. “I’m shot, he said. “I took the gun away from her. I have it.”
According to the affidavit, investigators charge that Hepner “did knowingly and intentionally plan to kill and murder Mr. Miglino from a premeditated design.” She did this, they continued, to keep Miglino from taking her grandson to New York “in the midst of this embattlement of child custody disputes.”
