Mugshot of the Day: Gregory Aaron Kinsey, ‘Misunderstood’
June 28, 2013 12:45 PM By Cora Van Olson
Gregory Aaron Kinsey was arrested on June 26, 2013, in connection with the double murders of Nathan Young, 32, and Brandon Prince, 39, who were hacked to death with a machete in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Kinsey’s mother says he is “misunderstood.”
Kinsey, 20, has no prior arrest record, and did not know the two victims before they allegedly confronted him in an alley as he was returning from a store. The confrontation escalated and Kinsey pulled out the machete and attacked. One witness heard him mention, “Satan that’s within him.” After an eyewitness struck Kinsey on the head with a board, Kinsey fled the scene. He was later arrested at his mother’s house and police found the machete hidden there.
Kinsey reportedly told police that during the murders he had a “clear mind” and that “it was like he was watching a movie.”
Police described the murder scene as something “out of a horror movie.” When asked what the motive was, Sgt. Daniel Grubbs of the Fort Smith Police Department said, “You can’t explain evil behavior like that.”
His mother, Kimberley LeClaire, told 5newsonline.com that her son is “misunderstood,” that he’s an “outcast,” a “cutter,” and that he is “brilliant.”

Machete Murder Suspect Jailed on Two Counts of Capital Murder
Posted 1:27 am, June 27, 2013, by Daniela Montgomery and Katie Kormann, Updated at 04:14pm, June 28, 2013
Two men are dead after being attacked by a man armed with a machete at a Fort Smith home, according to police.
Police said Nathan Young, 32, and Brandon Prince, 39, were stabbed to death, near the intersection of North 16th and North D Street in Fort Smith, before 10 p.m. Wednesday (June 26).
When Police arrived they said they found Prince’s body on the front porch and Young’s body in the grass on the west side of the home.
Police arrested Gregory Aaron Kinsey, 20, in connection to the murders.
An eyewitness said he was on the front porch of the duplex having a beer with the two victims when Kinsey was seen walking in the alley next to the home with grocery bags in his hands.
According to court documents, Kinsey said he was walking back from the Dollar Store when he thought he saw a person who used to date his mother. While looking through a backyard, Kinsey said he was confronted by three people who wanted to know why he was there.
Kinsey and the victims exchanged words and Kinsey pulled out a machete to warn them, the documents state.
Kinsey told police he didn’t think the men would let him go so he started swinging the machete, striking two of them. The men backed away, but Kinsey told police he pursued them and hit one of them in the alley, according to court documents.
The eyewitness told police he struck Kinsey on the head with a wood board and Kinsey then fled from the scene.
Kinsey told police he had a “clear mind” and once the fight started “it was like he was watching a movie,” the affidavit for probable cause states.
Prince’s two children, 15, and 2, were inside the home at the time. A witness described the horror of seeing them scream for their father after the murders. The children were temporarily taken into DHS custody until their mother or another relative can be located.
The gruesome scene was described by police as something “out of a horror movie.”
Sgt. Daniel Grubbs with the Fort Smith Police Department said another witness said he knew Kinsey’s mother and eventually led officers to South 17th street where he was found in his mother’s garage-style apartment. Police say they also seized the machete believed to be used in the attack from that home.
Kinsey had no prior connection to the two victims and does not have a previous record, according to Sgt. Grubbs. When asked what caused the altercation to escalate into such a brutal attack Grubbs said, “You can’t explain evil behavior like that.”
According to Grubbs, another witness said he heard the suspect during the argument make mention of “Satan that’s within him.”
A Fort Smith prosecutor responding to the scene told police he plans to charge Kinsey with two counts of Capital Murder. Kinsey is currently being held in the Sebastian County Detention Center.
He is expected to be arraigned at 9 a.m. on July 3 on two counts of capital murder, according to Cpl. Patricia Sullivan.

Prosecutors Seek Death Penalty for Arkansas Machete Murders

FORT SMITH, Ark. – The death penalty will be sought in the case against a man accused of killing two people with a machete in June.
According to reports from KARK, Sebastian County Prosecutor Daniel Shue filed a letter Thursday saying he would seek the death penalty against Gregory Kinsey.
Kinsey, who is charged with two counts of murder for the deaths of Nathan Young and Brandon Prince, has pleaded not guilty to both charges.
The letter states that Shue based his decision on “the sufficiency of the evidence linking the Defendant to the offense; the seriousness of the offense; the Defendant’s culpability (including his mental state); and the Defendant’s criminal record.”
Local law enforcement and the families of the victims were consulted before making this decision.
According to authorities, Young and Prince were drinking beer on the front porch of a home on North D Street when Kinsey walked by carrying groceries.
After exchanging words, police say Kinsey told the men Satan was “within him” and he pulled out a machete and hacked the men to death.
