Teen Charged In Triple Murder Over Hair Extensions

MEMPHIS, TN (WTXF) – An 18-year old has been charged after police said she killed a man and his pregnant girlfriend during a robbery.

Shelby Isaac will have to face a judge after EJ Tate and Edwina Thomas were killed in January 2016.

According to WMAC Action News, Tate and his cousin run a business called VirginHair4US.com. They believe Isaac and a suspected accomplice, Victoria Seay, may have brought hair from him before.

Family and friends believe the bundles of hair, valued at up to $250 each, may have been the motive for the murders.
Witnesses say they saw Isaac go through Tate’s pockets after she shot him.

The Grio reports police said Seay also acted as a getaway driver and is being charged with accessory after the fact.
