Georgia Man Allegedly Runs Over Girlfriend With Truck, Killing Her And Their Unborn Baby
Henry County, GA – Brian Feltman was arrested after he allegedly ran over his pregnant girlfriend Megan Pope with a pick-up truck, killing both her and the unborn baby. Feltman, 27, is charged with both feticide and murder. Neighbor Damien Powers ran help after hearing Pope cry for help. Powers told Channel 2 News that Feltman informed him the victim was three months pregnant. Henry County law enforcement officers reportedly believe Megan Pope was four months pregnant.
Damien Powers also told the local news station that he believed Brian Feltman and Megan Pope had an argument and Feltman went out searching for her in his pick-up truck on Sunday morning. Megan Pope, 27, posted photos of her ultrasound scan on Facebook several weeks ago, the Daily Mail reports.
“She couldn’t wait to have a baby. They were having a reveal party next weekend to find out what the sex of the baby was. We were all prepared to go to her house and have the revealing party,” Lawrence Pope, the victim’s father, told Channel 2 News. “She was focused on becoming a mother.”
Henry County Police Major Jason Bolton reports Brian Feltman initially denied running Megan Pope over with his pick-up truck, Channel 2 News notes. According to Major Bolton’s briefing, Feltman allegedly told police officers that someone else had run over his pregnant girlfriend and he just found her body on the road in front of their home.
Physical evidence and witness statements collected by the Georgia police officers prompted them to believe that Brian Feltman intentionally ran over his girlfriend and unborn baby in his pick-up truck. Police officers also believe Feltman was drinking at a social gathering in Heron Bay before he allegedly used his pick-up truck as a weapon and ran over Megan Pope and the unborn baby.
