BYRON SMITH: Murder or Self Defence?

Byron Smith (center) and the teens he shot — Haile Kifer (left) and her cousin Nicholas Brady (right).

According to 64-year-old retired State Department worker Byron Smith, two Little Falls teens broke into his rural home on the Mississippi River when he shot and killed them in self-defense. He then let the bodies sit in his house for more than a day before authorities, following up on a suspicious vehicle report, came to Smith’s home and he told them about what happened.

The criminal complaint says that Smith shot the two as they came down his basement stairs several minutes apart on Thanksgiving Day. The complaint adds that he shot them numerous times – each in the head after already critically wounding them.

He then waited a day before asking a neighbor to alert authorities, the document added.

According to Smith, his home was burlarized on multiple occasions (eight) and he believes the teens had something to do with atleast a few.

Smith told investigators he shot Schaeffel as he walked down the stairs, then shot him again in the face as he lay on the floor looking at him.

“I want him dead,” Smith told police.

Smith said he sat down in a chair when Kifer started walking down the steps. Smith shot her and she also fell down the stairs. He tried to shoot her a second time, but his rifle jammed. When the gun jammed, Kifer laughed at him, fueling his anger.

“If you’re trying to shoot somebody and they laugh at you, you go again,” he told police.

Smith told police he then shot Kifer “more times than I needed to” in the chest, leaving her gasping for air. He ended her suffering with a “good, clean finishing shot” under her chin.

“Smith acknowledged leaving the bodies in his home overnight before calling a neighbor to ask about a lawyer and to request that authorities be notified,” the Strib reports.

 ♦ Last week on Sunday, August 26th, 2012 an individual walked into Springer’s Pizza in Lapeer and stole $78.00 from a donation canister on the front desk. The donation canister was set-up for people to donate money to help children in need and whomever robbed the canister knew what the money was meant for, as there were a sign explaining the money was intended for the Justice for Lily foundation, a local organization that raises funding for child abuse awareness. Justice for Lily was founded by Lauren Furneaux after her daughter Lily, was murdered at just 2 years old by her abusive stepmother. ♦


Below is a statement from the Justice for Lily Foundation.

VIA Justice for Lily ↔ If anyone knows who stole this money please contact the police. We are a Non profit organization, each person that works with Justice for Lily is a volunteer including our Board of Directors; of which is composed of working professionals in our community. We donate hours each day to this cause and we all do so without a single complaint because we are standing up for what we believe in; however when money that could benefit a child is stolen it only lights the fire in our hearts that much stronger.
Recently a lot of our donated funds are used to obtain transcripts and assistance for families going through abuse cases in order to help the children, we currently are pulling money from our own pockets in order to obtain most of the transcripts. At this point we are keeping Justice for Lily afloat through our recent fundraisers including T- shirt sales and through our own personal incomes.
 Please if you know who stole this money please let them know that it was extremely wrong if they merely stole the funds for no reason however we hope the $80 was used to feed or clothe a child in need in our community and if this was the case and they need further help to please contact us. We also would like to thank Springer’s Pizza for standing up in the fight against child abuse with us and we want you to know that it is because of supporters like you that we are able to continue our fight each day!!! Thank you, JFL.”
Article 8/26/12 ↔ “It takes a desperate human being to commit theft but it takes a heartless one to steal from a child’s charity.” This was the dilemma faced by Matthew Langness and his mother Karen, the owners of Springer Pizza in Lapeer when last week it was discovered that $78 had been stolen from a donation canister on the front desk.
The money was intended for the Justice for Lily foundation, a local organization that raises funding for child abuse awareness. Justice for Lily was founded by Lauren Furneaux after her daughter Lily, was murdered at just 2 years old by her abusive stepmother. “I don’t know how they can sleep at night” said Matthew of whoever assumed the painstaking task of breaking into and emptying the canisters and a old paint can.
Matthew said the thief must have taken the can outside in order to pry of the lid otherwise he would have heard the jingling of loose change. As a lifelong resident of Lapeer, Matthew considers the loss a personal one “It’s no different then stealing from my own kids,” he said. And the Langness family is no stranger to the Furneaux family. Karen has worked a booth near Lynette Furneaux, Lily’s grandmother so they were more than glad to house the donation tin bearing the smiling toddlers photo. “We felt for them” said Matthew “It (Lily’s Death) was a local tragedy and we tried to reach out and help anyway we could” Karen and Matthew give to many organizations including; schools and churches, under the belief that as a community residents should “look out for each other and help others”.
On the grin counter addressed to someone who gained a wealth of nearly $80 dollars at the expense of child abuse awareness, is a note from Karen that reads;
To the person that took the money from Lily’s can, you are a lowlife rotten person. God knows what you did and somebody you know will be burned for doing what you did. I hope your face shows up on my hidden camera cause I will get the joy of burning you first. Bring it back and make it right!” Matthew and Karen are asking that the money be returned and they are even willing to offer a reward in exchange for the truth. They do their best to match each donation made to justice for Lily, and have personally replaced the stolen funds .”
