Alexander O Cantrell-King Death – The female victim in the Edwards shooting inquiry has now been confirmed by the Camden County Sheriff’s Office to have passed away. Tammy M. Larrabee, 54, passed away on Friday after being taken to University Hospital on the evening of February 21. In this inquiry, Larrabee is the second victim to pass away. Eric L. Cantrell passed away right there at the crime site. Missouri, Camdenton, 02-21-23 – At before 11:00 p.m. on Sunday night, Camden County Communications got a call concerning a disturbance. Someone can be heard being told to “put the gun down… Alex, put the gun down” during the 911 call. After hearing fighting noises, the call was cut off.
Deputies and medical professionals were sent to the Edwards neighborhood near State Road FF and Pine Cove Road after communications officers were able to pinpoint the location of the phone call. Deputies and medical workers found the house where the call originated once they arrived in the area. There they saw a man, later identified as 56-year-old Eric L. Cantrell, lying on the camper’s living room floor with a clear gunshot wound. Cantrell was unable to be revived despite the efforts of sheriff’s officers and emergency medical staff, and was declared dead.
A second gunshot victim, a female who will not be named out of respect for her privacy, was also inside the camper and was flown by helicopter to a nearby hospital. Detectives recognized 20-year-old Alexander O Cantrell-King, a relative of both fatalities, during their investigation. He claimed to have heard a gunshot inside the trailer. When he entered to look around, he saw Eric Cantrell on the floor and the unnamed female victim holding a 30-30 gun. Nevertheless, when the gun unintentionally went off and shot the unnamed female victim, he claimed to have wrestled it away from her.
The unnamed female victim who was shot during the ambulance ride to the hospital recognized Cantrell-King as the shooter. The evidence at the site refuted Cantrell-account King’s of what happened and supported her claim. After being detained, Cantrell-King was sent to the Camden County Adult Correctional Center. One count of Class A Felony First Degree Murder, one count of Class A Felony First Degree Domestic Assault, and two counts of Unclassified Felony Armed Criminal Action are all brought against Alexander O Cantrell-King. He is being jailed without bond and will make his court appearance in late March before the Camden County Associate Court. A reminder that these accusations are only wrongdoings. All suspects are presumed innocent unless a court of law finds them guilty.
