Police believe the victim was dating one of the perpetrators. The media glorifies black male/white female relationships. However, these women are 12.4 times more likely to become victims of femicide than white females who only get involved with white males.


Three Escambia County residents  have been arrested  in connection with the March 31 homicide of Melinda McCormick.

Anthony Lamar Pressley, 26, Kiesha LeShay Pugh, 28, and Gregory Edward Williams, 21, were each charged with homicide and robbery. All three were booked into the Escambia County Jail without bond.

The body of a 33-year old white female, Melinda McCormick, was found shortly after 2:00 am Sunday, March 31 in a burning apartment at the Melei Apartments in the 3000 block of Mobile Highway.
