That's what police say happened to Willard Bryant Payne, the 26-year-old man found dead in Forest Park on Monday.
According to the St. Louis police, Payne of University City went to the park late Sunday or early Monday to smoke marijuana with two women he'd just met, Dawn Fulks, 25, (left photo above) and Mellonie Jones, 20, (right photo) of St. Louis. When Payne made a verbal sexual advance toward Fulks, Jones (described by police as Fulk's girlfriend) became enraged and allegedly hit Payne.
The police say Payne tried to run from the women but they caught up with him and continued the beating.
Payne's body was found at 6:41 a.m. by persons driving near the park. He was pronounced dead at the scene, a victim of blunt force trauma.
Both Fulks and Jones are described as being larger than Payne. When they were arrested Tuesday, the women told police that Payne tried to rape them. Police say their investigation later found the rape claim to be false.
On Wednesday the women were charged with first-degree murder, armed-criminal action (for using an object to beat Payne) and for filing a false police report. No bond has been set at this time.
