Part 4: Larry Dunn Confesses to Killing Cicely Bolden Over Her HIV Status

Part 4: Larry Dunn Confesses to Killing Cicely Bolden Over Her HIV Status


In September 2012, Cicely Bolden's young children came home from school to find their mother stabbed to death. For the first time, the interview and confession of Larry Dunn, who was convicted of her murder and sent to prison, is available for all to hear his explanation of that fateful day.

Dunn-facex400Within 24 hours of the murder of Cicely Bolden, Dallas police released statements that Larry Dunn had murdered the mother of two because he thought she had given him HIV. 

"In my mind, I'm already dead," Dunn told a detective after initially denying any involvement in Bolden's murder, and hours of sitting quietly in a police interrogation room. "She killed me, so I killed her."

Dunn-murder-weaponx400Until today, Dunn's interviews and confession have not been seen or heard outside a courtroom. HIV Plus requested the video interview and confession from Dallas police over a year ago, following Dunn's conviction and sentencing to 40 years in prison.

This is the fifth of five videos of Dunn's interviews and contains his complete confession from September 2012. The video has been edited to remove hours of silence and Dunn sitting in the interrogation room. HIV Plus has also edited out video of Dunn having his DNA, fingerprints and photograph taken as they added nothing to Dunn's initial story or his subsequent admissions.
