Quote:‘I have been attacked ... help me please’: Chilling final messages of AT&T worker bludgeoned to death on the job by ex-con
Kevin Mashburn, 58, was doing overnight repairs last Wednesday when he was beaten to death by an ex-con during an attempted mugging. Bryan Middlemas, 35, could face the death penalty for the horrifying attack.

Bryan Middlemas, 35, is charged with killing AT&T technician Kevin Mashburn on Sept. 19 in Gladstone, Mo. The career criminal and ex-con attacked the 58-year-old father of four after he wouldn't hand over his wallet, police said.

Missouri investigators have released the chilling final text messages sent by an AT&T technician pleading for help after he was allegedly bludgeoned with a crowbar by a savage ex-con last week.

Kevin Mashburn, 58, was doing tower repairs near an apartment complex in Gladstone, near Kansas City, early Wednesday when he was attacked by Bryan Middlemas, 35, authorities said.

Middlemas demanded Mashburn's wallet, authorities said.

When Mashburn wouldn't give it up, Middlemas pummeled him with a crowbar taken from the older man's work truck, authorities said.

As Mashburn lay dying in his truck, he texted two other AT&T workers and begged them to send help.

The haunting final messages were printed on the website of Kansas City's local Fox 4 television station.

He sent the first at 2:52 a.m., around an hour after the attack, authorities said.

"I need you to call me an ambulance," he wrote to an AT&T dispatcher named Amanda, according to Fox 4.

"I have been attacked ... Help me please," he said in two more messages, before sending his location.

At 2:55, he texted another woman named Gracie.

"Need police," he wrote. "Hurry."

"They are en route," Gracie replied.

"Was attacked [with] a flat crowbar," Mashburn said in a later message.

"We are praying," Gracie wrote. "You hurt bad?"

"Yes," he wrote. "Head split open."

Eventually, Mashburn started honking the horn as another worker frantically searched the area for him.

Police arrived at around 3:30 a.m., and the father of four was rushed to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead from his injuries.

A tipster led police to Middlemas on Saturday night, and he was arrested and charged with first-degree murder, attempted robbery and other counts, according to local reports.

If convicted he could face the death penalty.

AT&T had offered $100,000 for information leading to his arrest.

After the beating, Middlemas, who has a record of arrests and jail time for assault and drug possession, called an old cell mate and admitted to clubbing a man and throwing the crowbar in a lake a few blocks away, authorities said.

Dive teams were searching Chaumeire Lake for the murder weapon, Fox 4 reported.

Middlemas made his first court appearance Monday and pleaded not guilty, according to local reports. His bond was set at $1 million.

Mashburn worked for AT&T for 41 years, his family said, and was beloved by his children, grandchildren and wife of 33 years.

"He's a teddy bear," his son, Bill, told local station KCTV over the weekend. "He's easily the most kind-hearted, gentle selfless man that I've ever met."

"If everybody had a Dad like mine, like ours, then stuff like this wouldn't happen," he added.

Family members set up a memorial fund in his honor. The address was posted on KCTV's website.

What a shame. I wonder what AT&T's policy is on carrying a weapon, I bet we wouldn't be surprised by it. I hope justice is served on this scum.

I have heard stories like this hundreds of times. It has almost gotten to the point where it just dosen't affect me anymore. For some reason this one does, I am sitting here with moist eyes and hopeing this monster gets a severe beatdown in prison. I think I may be full of upset. This shit really needs to slow down. I know it will not stop but enough is enough.

Guns can and do stop crimes. When the jackass softees get thier Kumbaya heads out of their asses and take a look at the facts then maybe just maybe we can start to stem the tide of unaffraid ruthless criminals just creating mayhem all willy nilly. If a piece of shit violent douchebag thinks he may get shot for his fucking trouble maybe he will think twice and if he dosen't then at least the victem has at least a chance of defending ans possibly saving his life.

Hope I did not put anyone off with my rant but boy-o-boy am I ready for the reset.

I think pocket carrying is the only way to get around HR rules, if you can get away with not wearing slacks at work that reveal outlines. Obviously it depends on the profession of course, but few employers are willing to stick their hands down your pants every day to ensure you're not carrying on the job. Edit: If they post no firearms on the building of course, you're screwed. If you're alone working at all hours in a work truck and especially in bad neighborhoods, I wouldn't even accept the job if I was not permitted to carry under 235.

I would rather be fired for defending my life than me being 6 feet under.

I'm not convinced that pepper spray acts quickly enough to stop. It is effective, but it's not immediate. You have 4 seconds after being sprayed in the face before you begin to go blind. That's 4 seconds too long.

This is what conflicts me so much. I try hard to respect the rights of others so I don't like to carry if there are rules against it. I also don't want to be a victim so I carry a gun. I also need to eat and feed my family.

This is one reason I oc as much as I do. I truly believe it can help if people see honest hardworking people carry guns. It may help to make it seem "normal". Others may not agree but this is the way I feel.

Also: You want to see someone who can get OC'd in the face and not react?

Someone who is HIGH ON WET. Dudes high on wet (marijuana dipped in PCP) can take repeat fire from Phila cops--who are decent shots, score hits, and the dude high on wet will still be going 100% unless you can make a lethal shot (i.e. to the head).

When your pain receptors are not functioning right, pepper spray is totally useless.
