911 Tapes Released From Livonia Double Murder, Suicide

LIVONIA (WWJ) – It’s a story that shocked the city of Livonia, a 17-year-old girl watched her ex-boyfriend kill her current boyfriend, Jacob Burns, before shooting himself in the head.

Tuesday the 911 call made by Desiree Staperfene last week was released and obtained by the Detroit News.

“My ex-boyfriend broke into my house and killed my current boyfriend and then killed himself,” said Staperfene.

“Did you just find them?” asked the 911 operator.

“Um, no he killed my current boyfriend and then he held me hostage and then he just shot himself in the head,” said Staperfene.

What Staperfene didn’t know was that her ex, Brian White, had also killed her mother, who authorities found dead in the upstairs bedroom.

Staperfene states she was beat up by White before he committed suicide.
