Prosecutor Seeking First Degree Murder in Dargis Case
The following story stems from the sexual assault of an unidentified 19 year old woman in the Zeeland township in Michigan. She is identified in the article as a furry and as going by the name “Night Horse”. Her former boyfriend, Joshua Michael Hambley was arrested for the murder on February 25th. Her involvement with the furry fandom was brought up while she was being questioned about text messages sent to Dargis after the assault.
The Holland Sentinel reports:
Even though she accused him of sexual assault, text messages a woman exchanged with Jonathan Dargis days before he was killed suggested the woman was open to meeting him again.
Defense attorney Thomas Smith read excerpts from the messages while cross-examining the 19-year-old woman during the conclusion of a preliminary exam for Joshua Hambley on Tuesday. After testimony was complete, the judge determined there was enough evidence to send the case to trial in circuit court.
Hambley, 18, is charged with open murder in the death of Dargis, 18, whose body was found buried in the woods behind Hambley’s mother’s residence in Zeeland Township on Feb. 25.
“Smith also questioned the woman about her identity as a “furry.” “Furries” are part of a subculture who believe they possess both human and animal characteristics.
The woman believes she is part horse and has adopted the “furry” name “Night Horse,” she said.”
