SIDNEY, OHIO: A 22-year-old man, James Rayl, was shot and killed by his ex-girlfriend's father after he tried to break into the family’s home on July 31. A video showed James trying to break into his ex-girlfriend Allyson Duckro's house and her 52-year-old father, Mitchell Duckro, shooting him thrice to protect his daughter, who has now revealed she was "forced to block him off everything" after "he was just being a d**k."
Narrating the details to a police officer in a new video footage obtained by Daily Mail, Allyson recalls by saying that she and James had broken up in 2019. She said, "I thought he was always very nice. He was okay in high school but after he got back from California, he was just different. His close friends, or whatever...he just started treating like c*** and nobody wanted to deal with it." "He would just tell me everything that was wrong with me. He would say that no one was going to love me anymore," she recalled, adding that he had liked to take acid when they were dating, but she has no clue if he still took drugs or if he had a new girlfriend as she stopped talking to him.
What exactly happened on July 31?
As reported earlier, the video taken by a doorbell surveillance camera shows James, who can be seen wearing a gray T-shirt, shorts, a blue hoodie, and a baseball cap, banging on the door of the home.
