A West Houston apartment that is home to “four or five Cuban men” was the scene of a murder last Friday night and the it appears that a pan of fried chicken was the driving force in the bloody battle between housemates.
Darwin Perez Gonzalez, 34, was found stabbed with a steak knife after an argument with his 38-year-old roommate, Reinaldo Cardoso River, over who got the last piece of homemade fried chicken.
The fight initially started indoors, but eventually moved outside, where several witnesses watched the tragedy unfold.
“There was a single drumstick in the pan,” according to HPD Homicide Detective Fil Waters. “You can’t script this stuff. It’s someone getting killed over a piece of chicken. Pretty tragic.”
All of this over a drumstick. Why couldn't they just make another batch?
