The suspect allegedly told the friend he “was in serious trouble,” saying he’d confronted Thompson after believing she’d stolen from him.
The warrant alleges Lannon told his friend he tied Thompson up, and admitted to “waterboarding her, smothering her with a pillow, and hitting her.”
The warrant also alleges Lannon told the friend “he wanted the victim to shut up, so he tortured her and that the girl begged for her life.”
Lannon’s sister told police she found Thompson “on the floor” of Lannon’s home and that she was “unresponsive with her ankles bound with string.”
The sister attempted chest compressions on the dying mother. Lannon allegedly insisted that his sister drive Thompson to the fire station.
The cause and manner of Thompson’s death have not been determined. But medical examiners did note her brain was swollen, and that the injuries to her face and across her body were consistent with someone who was “battered.”
