A Florida woman has been charged in connection with the beating death of a man who allegedly was caught masturbating in her yard. Jadian Sinead Zeiders, 26, claims she was in her home on the night of January 14, 2017, when she saw a man identified as William Denham Jr., 53, peeping through a window at her and masturbating. She claimed that she became scared and hid in her laundry room until her two male roommates arrived.

Zeiders claimed she told her roommates about the incident and pointed out Denham and they began to follow him down the street. She then told police an argument started when Denham was confronted and he physically attacked her two roommates. The roommates then beat and kicked Denham. An unknown Black man jumped out of the bushes and kicked a now unconscious Denham in the head and began going through his pockets. Zeiders and her friends then left the scene and went back home.

At some point, police spotted Denham on the sidewalk, an ambulance was called and he was transported to a local hospital where he died from his injuries. A medical examiner ruled the cause of death as blunt force trauma. Three days after the attack, police became suspicious when an anonymous tip came in that shed light on the attack. The tipster told police that he also saw Zeiders kicking Denham several times. While being questioned by detectives, Zeiders’ story soon began falling apart and conflicting statements were given about the attack. Over the next few days, the anonymous witness reported that Zeiders and her roommates claimed Denham tried to rape her and was also a pedophile, but all of this was disputed by Denham’s gay partner of 30 years, identified as Dan Kane, who stated that Denham was openly gay, gentle and was not interested in women.

Kane stated to media that Denham was a social worker and had walked to the store that night to pick up some frozen meals for dinner. He suspected that Denham’s death was due to a botched robbery and that he only had a few dollars in his pocket.

Zeiders was arrested this week and charged with second-degree murder for Denham’s death. She is being held on $100k bail in the Hillsborough County Jail. In November 2016, Zeiders was arrested for heroin possession and failure to appear in court on a driving infraction. The other two suspects involved in the attack on Denham have not been formally charged yet and remain free as the investigation continues.

      1. For obvious reasons. Buncha damn losers!! There is plenty of porn, this woman obviously at no point volunteered herself to be his wank material. I’m glad he is dead!! I wish all these losers would just drop dead. You included. Nasty!!

          1. Yes, I definitely think you have an issue with all men.

            I suspect a good number of men (probably every one with which you have ever been involved) have a good reason to have an issue with you.

          2. You’re so worked up you are responding to your own comments! That’s hilarious.

            For someone who hates men so badly, you sure are obsessed with their genitalia. I’m just saying…

          3. Give it a rest. Men have no idea the amount of sht women are forced to deal with now in the Era of Porn. Most men no longer protect women, instead they view many women as porn candy or living blow up dolls for their confused imaginary pleasure. Did this guy do this? Maybe. Did he deserve to die? Idk. Nor do I care. Do men care when women are robbed raped and murdered every day? Also no. One less pervert on the streets. Here in NY there are so many perverts that I carry a bat and pepper spray to protect my 11 year old and myself from pervs. And don’t mind using them if I have to protect us, either. Better a dead perv than another sex attack on women. And thank God her roomies tried to help. Most men dont give a hoot. Porn has warped how men act towards women, even regular women, not just porn chicks. Enough is enough. Hope she gets help for any addiction problem she is going thru tho. That’s not good either.

          4. Sorry you don’t get my point, thst women are subject to all kinds of sexual harrassment these days, so the dead guy could have very well been a perv and got what he deserved. and that I protect my self and my kids from perverts or harm in NYC, every day, so I empathize with her. Still think she needs help w that addiction problem tho. Take care.

        1. Did u not read the story????? He wasn’t even masturbating, he’s gay!! He wasn’t paying that dope fiend no damn mind!! He was walking to a store, so the dope fiends thought he was gd candidate to rob, but he didn’t have anything for them, so they beat him to death. FOH FOR THAT BAMMA ASS STATEMENT.. U are not the only woman that has issues with men, but damn cuz u keep picking LOSERS to be with DON’T MEAN ALL MEAN ARE!! U need JESUS, ALLAH, MARY or WHOMEVER YA GOD IS and a NEW SPOT FOR PICKING UP MEN BOO BOO

          1. Probably just not even gonna buy that janky product at all until they improve the whole line and I can verify that with good reviews. It’s not an emergency for me to have a penis around.

  1. Wow!! All of that because she needed that dope. Why kill an innocent person, killing was unnecessary. That unidentified BLK male that “jumped out the bushes” comment, I knew right there this was some BS ass lie they was making up. Charge they asses too, they helped her!!
