Las Vegas Police
Clarence Edward Martin, Jr.
A man from Las Vegas is accused of the murder of his two-month-old daughter in London on the 24th. October of a two-story balcony and killed. According to an affidavit from the LVPD, Clarence Edward Martin, 32, then set fire to his apartment… Burn it, ****, burn it… That’s what happens when you cheat on me.
According to the arrest report, the mother, Nicole Poole, told the police that Martin said he had mental problems when they started dating four years ago, but Poole never saw him have problems. However, she also told the police that he hadn’t eaten or slept in the last three days.
After the death of his daughter and the gunfire broke out in the family’s apartment, Martin jumped into a white Mercedes-Benz Pula and fled while hitting several other cars, according to the police.
According to the arrest report, Martin was at McCarran International Airport when he tried to enter the protected area and was not wearing a shirt. He was questioned by an employee and crawled onto a baggage carousel which, according to an affidavit, was brought into the airport security area.
Still on the run, Martin managed to find a TSA security shirt in the break room, according to an affidavit, but took off his pants. Meanwhile, the police were looking for him. Another employee saw Martin at the airport loading stuff into a work truck and alerted the police authorities who followed him near the truck.
When the police came to him, he screamed: Fire ****! Jeffrey Street, Jeffrey Street! – where he lived with Poole and his newborn daughter.
Martin took the baby out of his mother’s hands before throwing it off the balcony of.
According to the police report, Poole told the police that Martin woke and kicked them around 1 a.m. and that London slept with them in their bed. He hit her on the floor and Poole got up with the baby, went into the living room and sat on the couch in the living room where he was holding the baby.
Martin took Poole’s baby and went out on the balcony. He came back empty-handed, Poole told the police.
The mother immediately ran out to find her child on the ground in the parking lot downstairs. She ran downstairs, grabbed her little girl and ran away, thinking Martin was following her, according to the affidavit of the arrest.
Some time after she escaped, she called 911. A neighbor came to the rescue and they tried to resuscitate the child, but London succumbed to his injuries, which Clark County Medical Examiner said were blunt force trauma to the head, reports the Las Vegas Review Journal.
Martin is in psychiatric ward.
According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, Martin missed his first appearance in court for being detained in a Clark County Detention Center psychiatric ward.
It is clear from the court reports that the charges against Martin include murder in the open air, intentional/occurring first-degree burns, damage and mutilation of a cat, dog or animal, and assault and battery of the accused. According to the police, the poodle died in the apartment fire.
