A 19-year-old student at The Art Institute of Virginia Beach named Ashanti Billie was murdered - by a homeless man who used to SEXUALLY HARASS her at her job.
Ashanti worked as a cashier at the local BLIMPIE's sandwich shop, and the suspected KILLER visited the Blimpie's where Billie worked. Witnesses reported Brown "attempting to flirt with Billie" on several occasions. One witness said he made a "crude sexual comment" to her.
The suspected killer is Eric Brian Brown, a 45 homeless veteran of the Navy. He was charged with kidnapping, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia announced Wednesday.
Police say that they found Eric's DNA on Ashanti's body. Brown is homeless and "lives at random facilities and buildings on and off the naval bases," prosecutors said.
