Robin Croft


In April of 2007, 36-year-old Robin Croft moved with her 4-year-old son Da’ath Locklear from Florida to Gastonia, North Carolina.

She was quiet, and kept to herself – seemingly a perfect neighbor to those who lived in the apartments around hers.

On the 6th of October, late on Saturday night, neighbors recall hearing gunshots.

That was the last night that Da’ath Locklear’s father ever talked to his boy.

Some time passed.

Robert Trujillo, Robin Croft’s father, began to feel a little worried that his daughter neither answered her phone nor responded when he knocked on her apartment door. She had told her father that she had been been feeling depressed recently over an incident relating to Da’ath Locklear’s father.

On the 11th of October, 2007, police responded to Robert Trujillo’s request to check up on his daughter. At about 9 in the evening, they entered her apartment and went to the upstairs bedroom.

There, police found little Da’ath Locklear’s body, tucked into bed. He had been shot in the head, probably while he was asleep.

Robin Croft’s body was found on the floor next to the bed. She had shot herself.

  1. I knew Robin. I can’t remember when we had lost contact, but we had known each other during some rough times in our youth. I can still see the moments when there would be nothing in her eyes, cold and empty, moments when her eyes were full of light and emotion……… I still wish I could have had one moment, one day before she gave up on everything she could have been and what she meant to all the friends and souls that loved her.

  2. The “friends and souls” will have to go to hell to show their love for this woman. Or they can go to haven and give it to that innocent child.
