Women busted for leaving pig’s head at former home of Derek Chauvin witness

A trio of women has been busted for leaving a bloody pig’s head at the former Northern California home of the police expert who testified for the defense at the murder trial of ex-cop Derek Chauvin, officials said.

Rowan Dalbey, 20, Kristen Aumoithe, 34, and Amber Lucas, 35, were arrested in Santa Rosa this week on charges of felony vandalism and conspiracy, police told NBC.

The Santa Rosa trio, dressed in all black, is accused of vandalizing the former home of the ex-cop, Barry Brodd, over his testimony during Chauvin’s trial in the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis in mid-April.

“It appears the suspects in this vandalism were targeting Mr. Brodd for his testimony,” cops said at the time. “Mr. Brodd has not lived at the residence for a number of years and is no longer a resident of California.”

Brodd, a retired Santa Rosa officer who now works as a use-of-force expert, testified that Chauvin’s actions were within proper police protocols.

Chauvin was ultimately convicted of murder and manslaughter charges.

Barry Brodd, whose home was vandalized, testified during Derek Chauvin's trial that the former police officer followed protocol when George Floyd was killed.

Cops still believe there are additional suspects in the pig’s head vandalism and have asked the community to help identify them, NBC reports.

The three women were charged and released, the report says.
