Derek Owens Charged with Murder 1 – Laura Coltrane?

Derek Owens is currently sitting in Johnson County lockup charged with First Degree Murder. His Facebook states he is in a relationship with Laura Coltrane. Laura Coltrane, of Olathe, has been found and identified dead.

Olathe Police found Laura Coltrane dead after being called last Friday. Originally classified as a “death investigation”, police upgraded it to a homicide on Saturday and that is when Owens was picked up and booked.

Laura’s MySpace page says:
First and foremost, I would like to meet Jesus. But,if I could meet a famous celebrity it would have to be either Shamar Moore, Lil Wayne, T.O., or David Beckham. They are some of the most beautiful and talented people ALIVE.

Derek and Laura had a discussion back and forth on Facebook about her “frontin'” on him on FB. Well, Mr. Owens, no worries on that happening any time again…

Owens will be in front of a Judge on Tues Feb 22, 2011 on charges of Murder First. Court records show he had Domestic Battery charges dropped against him on Feb 4, 2011.

A friend comment from his Facebook page:

You are mean to Laura! : / If you are gonna be rude to her then why don’t you just leave and quit wastin’ both of ya time. She’s sweet…no crybaby, no bitch.

    Ok missindependent, ALL of her GOOD friends DID try to get her away from him as well as her family but you couldn’t make Laura do something she didn’t want to do. For some reason she saw something worthwhile in him…she thought she would be the one to change him. You should think before you speak…because that was not the case at all. Both friends and family begged and pleaded with her to get away from him.

    If we made her go anywhere that would be KIDNAPPING…she was a grown woman. Oh and btw, LOTS of smart, beautiful women have fallen in love with bad men. Didn’t Charles Manson have lots of girls following him around claiming to love him??? Ok then, sometimes people are too SCARED to leave and that’s why they don’t. It’s not because her friends/family didn’t love her enough. This is over…it’s in the court’s hands and all the truth will eventually come out.

    LOL. You could have used a much better example than the Manson girls, they were troubled to begin with & Manson filled a void in their lives.

    Hmm, well the autopsy report is pretty much public knowledge now, and those of you defending D must feel pretty stupid! To all you ignorant bitches on here that have dated D in the past and who are now defending D … does strangulation sound familiar? If you say “no” you’re either a liar or you are perpetrating a fraud and never dated D or never dated him for any real length of time. I have known D for years and I knew most of his g/f’s and I know that the autopsy report didn’t surprise me in the least. The havoc reaped on that girl was inexcusable and undefendable, the only explanation for ‘accidental’ trauma like that would be caused by Laura throwing herself in front of a train!
    And to the dumbass that said Laura’s friends should have made her go to court and made her move when he was in jail…that just shows your low IQ. I guess when you are grasping at straws as an argument you will turn to anything?
    To D’s family, it’s sad, but if you are being real, all of you know that this crime isn’t a surprise; everyone knew it would happen eventually. The circle of domestic violence was once again proven correct in this scenario. My thoughts go out to the Owens family for the sadness that this man has brought to their doorstep, no mother or grandmother should have to take on the guilt of their childs sin. Hopefully the family members that are traveling along the same path will get a wakeup call … but I doubt that. Most of all my heart goes out to Laura’s friends and family who have suffered a great loss, the real tragedy is that D is still here and Laura will never be again…. For those of you stupid enough to bash her friends and family … just remember that God sees all and we are all judged…if not in this life then in the next.
