Wife of suspect in girl's murder: 'Everything points to Bobby'

LOCKWOOD, Mo. — Brandy L. Bourne said at first she could not believe it when police showed up at her home in this small southwest Missouri town Monday evening, looking for her husband in connection with the kidnapping of a 12-year-old girl.

But in an interview following 34-year-old Bobby Bourne's arrest on charges of rape and murder, Brandy Bourne described her husband as a man with a history of violence who had a falling out with the slain girl's father.

Witnesses saw Bobby Bourne take Adriaunna Horton – a friend of the family – from a park in nearby Golden City and drive off in Brandy's old SUV, according to deputies. Bobby Bourne was arrested later that evening, and two days later, Horton's body was found in a field outside of town. 

"I want to believe that none of this happened, but everything points to Bobby," Brandy Bourne said. "People ask me how I could live this long with him, not knowing what kind of person he was. But there's never been anything there to ever suspect anything like this."

Brandy and Bobby met four years ago and were married two years later. They lived together in Lockwood, Mo., with Brandy's daughters from a previous relationship. The family became friends with James Horton and his daughters, including Adriaunna, in 2012 when Horton and Bobby Bourne began working together on home repair jobs.

Brandy said Bobby had been violent with her twice; once was in 2011, when he was arrested in a supermarket parking lot for grabbing her face and shoving her. He faced additional charges after he resisted arrest at the police station. And in another incident not reported to police, Bobby slapped her, she said.

A year later, Bobby Bourne was accused of hitting Brandy's oldest daughter, who was 12 at the time. He was charged with misdemeanor assault, but Brandy and her daughter said the incident was a misunderstanding, and that Bourne had spanked the girl for talking back.
