Much ado has been made regarding the actions of late by the Hathian Police Department. Reaching out to the Observer, both an officer and Lieutenant have released details leading up to fire that took place just a few weeks ago. Speaking for the Hathian Police Department, Officer Josh Alphaville presented this statement:
“There has been much speculation about the events surrounding Officer Tia Carrero’s death and her killer, Aria Senesca. Naturally, this speculation has led many astray. There is a belief or a rumor going around the city that Aria is somehow not guilty of her crimes, that she is worthy of pity despite the grave wound that she has dealt this city and its people.
Well, it’s time to set the record straight. The good citizens of Hathian deserve the truth, and they have a right to know who it is that they are defending. Aria Senesca is a cold-blooded murderer. She hunted Officer Carrero down at her home with the intent to deprive her of her life in the most heinous of ways. Carrero, an officer who was known to her community as being both caring and compassionate, was pregnant when Senesca shot her, and then savagely stabbed her with a machete.
Senesca’s motive for such a crime has been determined to be one of blood lust and revenge. Perceiving that she had in some way been wronged, this vicious criminal sought to right that wrong by murdering the person that she incorrectly blamed for an offense that never occurred. Aria is known to the Hathian Police Department. She has a long list of crimes and even an accusation, as many of you are aware, of sexually assaulting an attorney of this great city with an upstanding reputation.
Additionally, Senesca’s firearm was recovered at the scene of the crime. Boot prints matching her boots were recovered. Her blood and her DNA were even recovered. Officers who arrived on scene recognized her voice, and witnessed her flee in an attempt to avoid prosecution. Text messages from her phone revealed that she attempted to conspire with others to cover up her misdeed. There is no doubt that, in any jurisdiction, a conviction would be swift and easy. There is no doubt in our minds nor should there be any doubt in yours as to her guilt in this matter.
The HPD realizes that, due to some events beyond our control, that some in this city have made a martyr out of this despicable person. For those of you who have, you deserve to know that you are defending a cruel, vile criminal. When you stand for her, you stand against peace, you stand against justice, but most importantly, you stand against that which is morally upright.
Senesca does not deserve your tears, your pity, or your protests. We understand that the police department and the citizens of this great city are not on the best of terms. We are committed to improving those terms. And we want to hear from you as to what we can do together to make Hathian a better place to live, work, and play.
But sticking up for a rapist and a murderer is not the correct way to bring about positive, social change. We ask the city to think carefully and to work with us on a way forward. Defending Senesca and holding her up as if she is a role model is not the way forward.”
Detective Lieutenant Krystal O’Neil, the lead investigator of Carrero’s murder case, also wanted to correct some facts on Steven Smith’s article, previously published in the Hathian Observer:
“I was there with my co-worker Detective Lebowski, when she (Carrero) died. Before her passing, Carrero was able to reveal identity of Aria Senesca, when questioned about the ambush. Shortly after this, she succumbed to her injuries.
The teenager mentioned in Steven Smith’s article is young drug addict known as Coley who broke into Carrero’s home at 17th of September, 2017. This is not an allegation, but proven fact. Carrero attempted to fend off the knife wielding attacker (Coley) who had been broken into her home trough window, obviously suffering from delusions caused by prolonged substance abuse by hitting the attacker with hot cast iron pan, eventually managing to flee into bathroom where Carrero called to 911. Coley is known to work at La Tirada LLC, transport company belonging to Aria Senesca, tying Senesca even more into murder. As being stated above, motive was revenge – a premeditated one, considering Senesca was masked, armed with gun and machete during the ambush, classifying this crime as homicide, first degree.
Officer Tia Carrero will be missed dearly by her co-workers.”
