Woman, 76, Who Beat Boyfriend, 63, to Death With Bat Was Tired of Loving Him, Police Say
Suspect said victim made her smoke street drug 'love boat'


A 76-year-old woman repeatedly beat her 63-year-old boyfriend with a metal baseball bat over the course of a day and a half, she told police after they found the victim unconscious and bloody in a closet in a northeast D.C. home, according to court documents.

The suspect, Thomasine Bennett, met officers responding to a report of trouble shortly before 1 p.m. Friday and told them her boyfriend was in the back and made her smoke the street drug "love boat" the previous night, according to court documents. She showed them to a hallway closet barricaded with a board and removed the board and opened the closet to reveal Walter Mack Clark unconscious, unresponsive and naked in the fetal position with his hands bound.

Clark was pronounced dead at Howard University Hospital about an hour later.

Bennett told investigators Clark asked her to marry him on Valentine's Day while they were at a club, but she said she was tired of loving him and tired of him being with other women, according to court documents. Also on Valentine's Day, she almost got into a fight with someone else over Clark, she told investigators.

Bennett told police she beat him with a bat various times Thursday and Friday, according to court documents. A witness claims to have observed beatings both days and hearing Bennett call Clark a demon, police said.
