The accusation of a crime so rare that one had to turn to a dusty copy of Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary to even find the word for it has put 33-year-old Newbury Park Resident Brennan Post behind bars.
According to Ventura County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Sergeant Jeremy Bramlette, Post’s life dramatically changed 72 minutes after midnight on February 17th when VCSD Thousand Oaks Patrol deputies responded to his residence pursuant to a 911 Emergency Call for Service reporting the victim of a gunshot wound.
When deputies arrived on the scene, Post and other members of his family living at the residence reported that 25-year-old Cassidy Snow—Post’s sister—had been shot. While the cops called for emergency medical services, they learned that Post had been the one firing the weapon in question.
Shortly after medical teams arrived on the scene, it was determined that Snow was deceased with no hope of resuscitation. At that point, Post was taken into custody. The immediately ensuing search of the residence led to the discovery of “a firearm suspected of being involved in the shooting.”
Post was transported to Ventura County Jail, where he was booked on a charge of murder and where he remains in custody with his bail set at $2,000,000.
