Self-Defense Tip: Don’t Hire Prostitutes to Come to Your House at 1am

Raven B. Edwards (courtesy

“A man who was attacked by two other men in his home early Monday shot one of the men, killing him,” reports. “The homeowner, William D. Jolley, 42, told police that a woman, Raven B. Edwards, 27, of Cynthiana, contacted him via social media and asked to come over to his home on Monroe Lane in Cynthiana.” So Raven, some 15 years Mr. Jolley’s junior, contacted him, eh? Through an unnamed website, eh? And agreed to pop over for a quick introductory . . . drink. At 1am. Here’s the before-action after-action report . . .

Soon after Edwards arrived, she went outside and came back with two men who came inside too, according to a news release from state police.

The men, Marcus L. Gross, 28, and Larry J. Nolen, 26, both of Cynthiana, attacked Jolley, police said.

Jolley fired several shots and hit Gross. Gross and Nolen fled, and Nolen took Gross to Harrison Memorial Hospital.

Gross was pronounced dead at the hospital.

So, result. One less bad guy roams the Bluegrass State. Still, the incident highlights an important point for gun guys: don’t forget to maintain OpSec with the members of the fairer sex (i.e. don’t let the small head think for the big head). And keep your powder dry. So to speak.    [h/t JS]

    Now you tell me.

      “Don’t ask prostitutes to come”.

      Got it.

      1. avatar Matt Richardson says:

        You don’t pay for the good time, you pay for them to leave when you’re done.

        1. avatar SD3 says:

          And it’s money well-spent if they leave. When Raven comes back with some low-IQ white knights, you have to put the little turd-factories in the ground.

  2. avatar Mark Lloyd says:

    Wow. I wonder of all that excitement got him out of the mood? With all of that, gun play, dead guys, a BJ and more, I’d say he got his moneys worth!
    I’d be getting a hold of her again and telling her, “thanks for great time, we have to do that again. Oh, and by all means, bring more of your friends!!

      Sounds like something David Carradine would have enjoyed.

    in-call is a no-no. outcall at hotels only players. . . .

        Zionsville, IN rocks!!

    3. avatar Gunr says:

      Is this from the voice of “experience” ?

      1. avatar Geoff PR says:


        Dirk may be bound by attorney – client confidentiality..


        1. avatar LarryinTX says:

          Dirk just wants to be bound by Shannon!

      2. avatar Dirk Diggler says:

        I invoke my 5th Amendment right against incriminating myself

        1. avatar Geoff PR says:

          And cash only, no credit cards that can show up on embarrassing hard to explain card statements…

        2. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

          Or is that attorney-client-attorney privileges?

    4. avatar Geoff PR says:

      ” outcall at hotels only players. . . .”

      Dirk, can someone be a ‘player’ when the nookie comes from a paid professional.?

      I always considered ‘players’ to be like the guys sleeping with their bosses 20 yo daughter…

      Player extra bonus points for the danger…

      1. avatar whatever says:

        “Dirk, can someone be a ‘player’ when the nookie comes from a paid professional.?”

        Charlie Sheen says, “hell yeah. The more the merrier.”

      2. avatar LarryinTX says:

        “I always considered ‘players’ to be like the guys sleeping with their bosses 20 yo daughter…”

        That is an “adventurer”!

  4. avatar SouthernPatriot says:

    I just needed to be reminded of that….thanks!

    Merry Christmas to all!

  5. avatar Bernard says:

    It could have been sadistic foreplay.

  6. avatar cmeat says:

    if i took your advice, my xday present will never get here.

  7. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

    No problem. I’m more of a afternoon hooker kind of guy.

    1. avatar Gunr says:

      Morning for me, after coffee of course!

  8. avatar Hannibal says:

    I’m pretty sure that’s exactly the time you want a hooker to come over.

  9. avatar JSIII says:

    Never have hookers over to your house, bad bad bad bad move. Always a hotel.

    1. avatar Gunr says:

      Especially if your other half pops in unexpectedly.

      1. avatar cmeat says:

        i was intending to go full straight in.

    2. avatar LarryinTX says:

      Preferably a hotel in a foreign country!

      The guilty dog always barks…

  11. avatar Tom W. says:

    ‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring except some stoopid horn dog on Craigslist ordering hookers way past the witching hour when nothing good happens. At least the stockings and pistol were hung close with care, as he shriveled up quickly when the thrill was not there.

    Play stoopid games, win stoopid prizes.

    Merry Christmas TTAG!!! I need more of the Kennedy Family egg nog. Not much egg, but plenty of nog!

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      “not a creature was stirring except some stoopid horn dog on Craigslist ordering hookers way past the witching hour when nothing good happens.”

      Good things *could* happen.

      Just not for that guy…

    2. avatar 16V says:

      Some of my fondest memories have happened between 0:00 and 0:600.

      1. avatar Stinkeye says:

        If you even have memories of those hours, you’re not having enough fun.

        1. avatar 16V says:

          I didn’t say they weren’t vague memories…

  12. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    Never More, cried Raven….

    2. avatar whatever says:

      Poe, Poe, Poe!!

  13. avatar Gunr says:

    I’m dying to know! Did the dude get laid before the shit hit the fan? If the broad had been smart, she would have left the door unlocked when she came back in, and the two dudes could have waited till the guy had his pants down with pistol not at the ready, before they came in.
    Of course, this won’t work for the perps if the guy wears a shoulder holster with pistol intact. while he’s doing the “deed” Lot of ways to go here, good thing it went the right way!

    1. avatar SD3 says:

      “If the broad had been smart…”

      …she wouldn’t be a $20 crack whore.

  14. avatar Mark N. says:

    Only at a hotel? An incident strikingly similar to this one happened in my little town, at a no-tell hotel. They must teach the technique in prison.

  15. avatar cmeat says:

    i hope she doesn’t get stuck in the chimney.

    1. avatar pyratemime says:

      I don’t think thats what she specializes going down…

  16. avatar Steve says:

    He could be charged with some form of manslaughter, since the incident took place during the commission of a crime (that he was a part of).

    It would take a ball-busting DA to bring charges, but it isn’t impossible.

  17. avatar jwm says:

    Victimless crime? It was until it wasn’t.

    1. avatar whatever says:

      This can happen buying anything from Craigslist.

  18. avatar Roscoe says:

    What happens in ‘Nam stays in ‘Nam; what happens in Korea, stays in Korea.

    ‘Nuff said.

    Don’t play this shit at home. Keep your ‘powder’ dry.

  19. avatar Roscoe says:

    Merry Christmas from Japan.

    Think I’ll have another beer!!!!

    1. avatar 2AMexican says:

      Akimashita Omedetou Gozaimasu!

  20. avatar Russ Bixby says:

    Kinda gives “trigger discipline” o whole new meanin’…

  21. avatar Chuck in IL says:

    So, when is the BEST time?

  22. avatar Yngvar says:

    Why is the victim named? They never do that with rape, because of the intimate/private/humiliating nature of the crime. It’s the same here. There ought to be a law…

  23. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

    Ahhh……the old bait and switch hooker/robbery play. Classic. That’s so Raven.

  24. avatar J says:

    What’s this world coming to, if a guy can’t trust a ho, not to roll him…Cause where I come from, a ho is a ho…
