Three murders in a matter of days appear to have all stemmed from a deranged girlfriend by the name of Sabrina Starr.
Police say Starr, 21, drove 21-year-old Luis Perez and 19-year-old Aaron D. Anderson to a home on the 900 block of East Locust. Perez had recently been kicked out of the home by his two roommates 38-year-old Steven R. Marler and Starr’s boyfriend 23-year-old Aaron J. Hampton. Perez ended up murdering both Marler and Hampton and injuring two others with a 9-millimeter Glock 19 police say Starr had stolen from a vehicle while “car hopping” days prior to the shooting.
According to police, Starr traded the stolen gun to Perez for tattoos. On October 28, Starr uploaded four pictures with Perez showing a tattoo he had done on her neck. The tattoo was four words, “Kill or be Killed.” The caption with the pictures read, “Want A Good Tattoo Artist HMU And I’ll Give You His Info!Decent Prices.”
Anderson told police Perez used the gun Starr had given him. Starr allegedly stole the gun out of a 1997 Ford Explorer in the parking lot of a Springfield apartment complex on October 29. The owner of the Glock 19 reported the gun missing the morning of October 30.
After the shooting, Starr made a post to her Facebook about Hampton’s murder on November 1. In the post Starr acted as if she was a heartbroken girlfriend. She uploaded 18 pictures and wrote, “My Heart Is Broken Into Pieces,” and “I Wanted Us To Be Together.”

Over the next few hours Starr made a few more posts about Hampton. At 11:46 pm, Starr posted “I Miss Your Presence Babe …😓💔.” Just 40 minutes later, Starr posted “Tat Man On Deck At My House HMU !” Since just days prior Starr posted pictures with Perez after giving her a tattoo, one can only assume that was who she was referring to and she stayed with him in the hours after Hampton’s murder.
The day after the double homicide, Perez returned to Starr’s home on the 2100 block of North Oakland Avenue and shot her six times. Starr died as a result of the shooting. Police have not confirmed that Perez used the stolen Glock 19, but they also have not mentioned any other gun in court documents. It is unclear if police have the stolen gun in their possession.
On social media, a screenshot from a post on Facebook from someone named Courtney claims Starr set up the double homicide. The post goes on to claim that Perez was getting paranoid and that is why he killed Starr. Perez murdering Starr is allegedly why Anderson came forward to the police.
