Woman Shot in the Head, Executed by Cop Because She “Might Be Smoking Marijuana”
WELD COUNTY — A family is mourning the horrific death of their daughter.
A cop forced their daughter, Ashley, down to the ground, pressed a 9mm handgun against the side of her head, and shot her to death, according to reports.
She was executed at point-blank range, as the bullet ripped through her brain tissue.
Ashley leaves behind her three young children and her parents.
It began when Ashley was at a party with Officer Thomas Fallis. At the time, Ashley had been married to Officer Fallis.
At some point during the party, Ashley told Officer Fallis that she was “going outside to have a smoke” with her female friends.
For reasons unknown, Officer Fallis suspected that Ashley was actually going outside to smoke marijuana, not a cigarette.
Officer Fallis took offense to this and became wildly enraged, accusing Ashley of smoking marijuana, according to reports.
Officer Fallis then began screaming at other females at the party.
The party guests were deeply shaken by Officer Fallis’s rage and began leaving the party and heading home, not wanting to be around him.
Officer Fallis continued his vitriol against Ashley — by this time they were the only ones left in the house.
That’s when the unthinkable happened.
Officer Fallis pulled out his 9mm handgun and “held the gun to the right side of Ashley’s head and pulled the trigger,” according to the indictment.
He then immediately tried to cover up the murder by making it look like Ashley had “committed suicide.”
He “lowered Ashley to the floor, began holding her head, and called 911 to report that Ashley shot her self in the head,” the indictment states.

Ashley Fallis was pronounced dead a few hours later.
For some time, it was believed that Ashley did in fact commit suicide, and Officer Fallis almost got away with it.
But recent facts have come to light indicating that a fellow officer assigned to investigating Officer Fallis left out key details in his reports.
For instance, an eyewitness overheard Officer Fallis admitting to shooting Ashley, but this eyewitness testimony was excluded from the investigation.
“This new information includes allegations from witness accounts that we were previously unaware of,” Rick Brandt, a police chief, said in an interview with ABC News 7.
“Specifically, the allegations say that the officer omitted material statements from witnesses and that he changed at least one statement of a key witness in the case to support the conclusion of suicide,” he continued.
Ashley’s family has also come out and specifically reported Officer Michael Yates for covering up the murder by purposely omitting key evidence from the investigation documents.
The chain of events, then, appears to have been brought about as follows: Officer Fallis murdered Ashley in cold-blood; he then tried to cover up the murder by claiming that Ashley shot herself; then he found additional help from Officer Yates, who suppressed critical evidence from the investigation.
Now, a grand jury has finally indicted Officer Fallis for the murder of Ashley, dashing his pathetic attempts to cover it up.
No details are forthcoming as to whether and to what extent Officer Yates will be charged.
Officer Fallis was brought in Tuesday morning and is being held at a county correction center in Bloomington, Indiana.
Ashley is deeply missed by her community.
She was very popular due to her ongoing health activism after her son Blake was diagnosed with Hydrocephalus.
Her three children — Madelynn, Jolie, and Blake — will now grow up without their mother, all because Officer Fallis thought that his badge gave him the right to kill her over “marijuana” and get away with it.
Many surmise that Officer Fallis will get a light sentence, given the pattern of special privileges and “paid leaves” often granted to officers who commit unspeakable horrors.
More information about his exact sentencing will be provided as details surrounding the prosecution are made available.
