IRVING, Texas—Irving, Texas police said they had put together a timeline of events that led up to a car crash in a canal that killed three people.
On 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, the puck dropped at the American Airlines Center in a game between the Dallas Stars and the Detroit Red Wings. Irving police said 23-year-old Kenneth Lark and 21-year-old Katt Debeuckelaer started their night there.
"It's at that point that the young couple meets Mr. Eddins at that bar," said Irving Police Department Ofc. John Argumaniz.
Ronald Eddins, 41, was an accomplished attorney in Southlake. In documents CW 33 News obtained, his wife Michelle had just filed for divorce Dec. 27. Under 'grounds for divorce,' Michelle Eddins said the marriage had 'become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities,' and she also said Ronald Eddins 'had committed adultery.'
Police said after the restaurant bar, the couple and Eddins all got into Eddins' Porsche and came to The Men's Club on Northwest Highway.
"At approximately 1 a.m., that following morning, they were seen arriving at the Men's Club, located in Dallas," said Argumaniz.
Investigators said sometime after 2:45 a.m., the trio left The Men's Club and start driving west on Northwest Highway. At 2:55 a.m., someone who lived nearby the canal on Northwest Highway told police she heard a loud bang.
"They described the crash like being a dumpster being hit or a dumpster being dropped," Argumaniz told CW 33 News.
Police have a timeline, but why the couple left the restaurant bar with Eddins, why they went to the strip club and how much, if anything, Eddins had to drink that night was all still under investigation.
"A very unique set of circumstances around this crash," said Argumaniz.
