Florida beauty queen Meghan Brown, right, shot and killed an intruder with her pink .38-caliber handgun during a home invasion March 12 (FoxNews.com).

When a burly ex-convict forced his way into a posh Florida home last week, he had no idea what awaited him -- a 25-year-old beauty queen with a pink .38-caliber handgun.

Meghan Brown, a former Florida pageant queen, shot and killed 42-year-old Albert Franklin Hill during a home invasion March 12 at the 2,732-square-foot house she shares with her fiance in Tierra Verde, Fla.

Hill barged into the home at around 3 a.m. after Brown responded to a knock at the front door, according to a police report. He allegedly grabbed the 110-pound Brown around her nose and mouth and dragged her to an upstairs bedroom.

OK.
Coupla things. She opens the door at 3AM? Yeah, they offered an explanation, but I dunno...

Another thing. I googled up a picture of this guy and found a couple. Nice looking guy. But from what I saw, I don't think he makes his living climbing trees, and he claims he's an arborist. But what's with the gold necklace and stuff?

And if he is I wanna go to tree trimming school! She wears a 60,000$ engagement ring. He pays for pizzas with 100 dollar bills. They live in a ritzy neighborhood.

No matter what, I'm glad this Bozo is no longer with us. I'm just not convinced it all went down the way they said it did.

Arborist?:confused: I Goggled it up. A good one makes 45,000/year. OK. So he owns the company. Gold necklace? Nah.

I don't wish to be unkind, but she's kind of monkey faced and greasy to be a beauty queen.

The "disco look" never died in Florida. The vacation style from the late 70's is apparently a timeless look for Europeans and some Floridians, not to mention some New Yorkers and people from New Jersey.

An arborist named Planthaber? What next, a dentist named Toothenscheiner?

Wait for another article about these folks, to be sure. Not only do they live in a very nice neighborhood, albeit not the very best side of the street as that goes (not waterfront) , he also owns a pricey condo and a lesser one up in Clearwater.

She was Miss Tierra Verde, a glorified housing development that got its own zip code a few years ago. The area is most famous for being the home of absentee Florida residents (aka not really) shielding California wealth from bankruptcy courts.

Stop thinking with your penis. When something looks or sounds off, it usually is.

He's going to get in deep shit when they catch him.

He's done this expensive engagement ring thing before.
He's also owned a "roofing company".
He claims a six figure income from trimming rich people's trees in Tampa.

Yeah. Something's up with these two.
She seems to be a professional Pretty Girl, which doesn't pay a whole lot, especially if you're not real pretty, and I just ain't real sure about him.:)

He's a 42 year old man engaged to a 25 year old girl. He's rich.

But, let us remember that these two are the victims. The bad guy is the one who tried to break in and got shot. I'm on their side.

Well, that's what they say. And they say he's been casing the house for 3 months. Seems like a long time to me, but maybe it's a complicated house.:rolleyes:

I'm all for shooting that sumbitch. It's just that I ain't buying everything that has been reported. 3AM? Friends drop in all the time when they're too drunk to drive?

I bet some cop who covers that beat is asking the same questions that I am.;)

Maybe he'll find answers. Maybe not.

Lotsa people earn "six figures". I'm thinking maybe there's a "seventh".:)

You not smell nothing funny here?

Albert Hill, habitual criminal with cocaine convictions, shows up at a random house in Tierra Verde at 3 am, and the woman opens the door for him? This is a house with full security system and surveillance cameras, and she opens the door at 3 am to a complete stranger?

He grabs her, Planthaber grabs him, she goes to another room and gets a weapon, and shoots him dead.

Uh, no. If one of them had conspired against the other, then the scenario makes no sense. If she'd wanted to kill her fiance, then she could have just let the guy beat him. If he'd wanted her dead, he wouldn't have fought with the intruder. Nah, sometimes an ex-con trying to break into your house in the middle of the night is just an ex-con trying to break into your house in the middle of the night.

Psssst....Odie!....it was a drug deal of some sort. It went bad. Bad guy (the guy who showed up to rob the house by ringing a doorbell, and didn't have a weapon) died. There were no good guys.:)

I guess I wasn't clear. My suggestion is that Planthaber and moll are drug dealers, and that Albert Hill was a customer who either got out of hand, who whom PLanthaber and moll planned to kill for some reason.

It would be interesting to know how Hill got to the house.

There was an e-mail that made the rounds a few years ago of British Officer Efficiency Report comments. The Brits are far more pithy and dry when they write theirs, and they were hysterical. One quick Google search and here they are:


The form used for Royal Navy and Marines fitness reports is the S206. The following are actual excerpts taken from people's "206's"....

- His men would follow him anywhere, but only out of curiosity.
- I would not breed from this Officer.
- This Officer is really not so much of a has-been, but more of a definitely won't-be.
- When she opens her mouth, it seems that this is only to change whichever foot was previously in there.
- He has carried out each and every one of his duties to his entire satisfaction.
- He would be out of his depth in a car park puddle.
- Technically sound, but socially impossible.
- This Officer reminds me very much of a gyroscope - always spinning around at a frantic pace, but not really going anywhere.
- This young lady has delusions of adequacy.
- When he joined my ship, this Officer was something of a granny; since then he has aged considerably.
- This Medical Officer has used my ship to carry his genitals from port to port, and my officers to carry him from bar to bar.
- Since my last report he has reached rock bottom, and has started to dig.
- She sets low personal standards and then consistently fails to achieve them.
- He has the wisdom of youth, and the energy of old age.
- This Officer should go far - and the sooner he starts, the better.
- In my opinion this pilot should not be authorized to fly below 250 feet.
- This man is depriving a village somewhere of an idiot.
- The only ship I would recommend this man for is citizenship.
- Works well when under constant supervision and cornered like a rat in a trap.


Only a few of these apply to me. :D

Pistol-Packin' Beauty Queen Looks to Cash In on Home Invasion Shooting


The Florida beauty queen who gunned down a home intruder with her pink .38-caliber handgun is looking to capitalize on the deadly shooting, demanding at least $1,500 for a racy photo of herself posing with the weapon.

Meghan Brown, a 25-year-old former pageant queen, shot and killed 42-year-old Albert Franklin Hill during a home invasion March 12 at the 2,732-square-foot house she shares with her fiance in Tierra Verde, Fla.

Hill barged into the home at around 3 a.m. after Brown responded to a knock at the front door, according to a police report. He allegedly grabbed Brown around her nose and mouth and tried dragging her to an upstairs bedroom.

Brown's fiance, Robert Planthaber, 42, fought the suspect while Brown ran to a nearby bedroom, grabbed her gun, and shot the intruder in the chest, groin, thigh and back, killing him.
