Male Lawyer Stabbed To Death After Soliciting Woman For Gay Sex On Craigslist, Thought She Was A Man

A 30-year-old lawyer from Washington, D.C., David Messerschmitt, was stabbed to death in a upscale hotel room after using Craigslist to solicit men for gay sex. However, instead of a man, a female military school graduate responded to the ad using a masculine sounding email address while pretending to be a man. The woman, 21-year-old Jamyra Gallmon, says her intention was to rob the man, but when a struggle ensued, she stabbed him repeatedly with a knife.

The Inquisitr previously reported that David Messerschmitt was found dead in his upscale Donovan Hotel room. Messerschmitt was found after his wife, Kim Vuong, reported her husband missing. Police say Messerschmitt was savagely stabbed to death in what appears to be a “sexual encounter” and robbery turned murder. Vuong pleaded with the public to help identify the woman from the surveillance video taken from inside the hotel during the time of the February murder. It seems the pleading has finally paid off, as Jamyra Gallmon, the alleged woman from the footage, is now under arrest for the murder of Messerschmitt.

The Daily Mail notes that additional information was provided today in the police affidavit. In the affidavit, Gallmon claims that she responded to a Craigslist ad soliciting men for gay sex. She says she responded to the ad while pretended to be a male. After Messerschmitt agreed to meet her at the Donovan Hotel, Gallmon planned to rob the unsuspecting man.

In the surveillance footage you can see that Gallmon is wearing androgynous appearing clothing as she enters the hotel. She can be seen wearing a black hoodie, black baggy pants and black boots. She says that when she approached the hotel room where Messerschmitt was staying, the door was already unlocked. She says she entered the room with the intention of robbing the lawyer and leaving.

However, she says that during the robbery a struggle ensued and she pulled a knife from her pants and stabbed Messerschmitt multiple times and continued to stab him as he fell to the floor. The police report indicates that the lawyer had numerous stab wounds to his groin, back and abdomen and that the knife also pierced his heart and hit his spinal cord.

Gallmon appeared in court this afternoon before the Superior Court in Washington, D.C. on a felony murder charge. Meanwhile, Messerschmitt’s widow, Kim Vuong, thanked the police for their hard work in tracking down her husband’s killer noting that “the world has lost a good person.”
