On Tuesday, Aug. 31, a California man was sentenced to life in prison for shooting and killing a Black 18-year-old woman in a vehicle in 2019.
According to the Fresno Bee, Dale Watson, 55, of Porterville, was sentenced to 43 years to life in prison for the murder of 18-year-old Dynasty Alexander of Tulare.
On March 3, 2019, Watson picked up Alexander in his car outside of an apartment complex to go to the store. A security camera caught footage of the two departing in Watson’s truck that morning after Watson offered Alexander a ride.
Officers went to a call regarding a body about 5 p.m. on the same day and discovered Alexander’s remains near an orchard. The body had been discovered by a passing motorist. It’s conceivable she’d been there since the early morning hours, according to investigators. Alexander appeared to have been strangled and had been shot in the upper body. She has a history of substance misuse and fleeing.
“They, like most children, have no idea what to be terrified of. And she trusted and liked everyone, which was exploited by someone. Carlton Jones, Alexander’s cousin, told Fox 26 at the time, “That’s why we’re here.”
Alexander would occasionally run away from home, according to family, but she would not go far and would typically keep in touch.
After the man’s automobile was observed in the area near where Alexander’s body was discovered, Watson was linked to the murder through surveillance footage and witness accounts. He was caught during a traffic stop two days later.
Watson was found guilty of second-degree murder and other weapons offenses in April.
“Her life was tragically cut short. I was aware that members of the community were attempting to assist her.
At the time of Alexander’s death, Tulare County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux remarked, “I know there were folks with specific groups attempting to help her that had high expectations trying to help her turn around.”
Watson had a history of rage issues. Watson was ordered to attend an anger management program by two different courts in a 2016 misdemeanor assault and battery case, but he never did.
