TIFTON, GA (WALB) –Disturbing new details tonight in the murder of a Tift County woman. The killing of Sunday Blombergh was exceptionally brutal and her killer(s) used three different methods to make sure she was dead.
GBI agents say they believe this murder was over a child custody battle for Blombergh's little girl. And agents say this murder contained an unusual amount of brutality, in the testimony it is revealed Blombergh was shot strangled and stabbed before she finally died.
Randy Tomlinson charged with helping hide Sunday Blombergh's body gave a stunned courtroom graphic details of the young woman's murder. "He revealed that miss Blombergh was killed by Herman Evans. Tomlinson had not participated in the murder but he was contacted by Mr. Evans asked him to come help him with something, that's when he found out Mr. Evans had committed a murder he did in fact helped him hide the body," said GBI Agent Mike Lewis.
Sunday Blombergh's father, Reign, sat in the courtroom as his daughter's murder was detailed. "He shot her in the living room, then he left and came back later and she said she couldn't walk and asked for help. When he came back later he put her in the bedroom and put a wire around her neck, he had thought he had killed her then came back and she was still moving. Then he went into the kitchen and got a knife put it under her ribs and pushed it into her heart," said Reign Blombergh, Sunday's Father.
"Between the shooting, the strangulation and the stabbing you would have to say that is an unusual amount of violence," said Lewis.
Sunday Blombergh disappeared April 27th from a home on Briarwood lane she shared with her estranged in-laws Ruby and Herman Evans. Weeks after her disappearance Herman Evans' friend, Randy Tomlinson, led investigators to Blombergh's body in a field not far from the Tift Colquitt County line.
"We interviewed him and put him on a polygraph and obviously he felt some guilt about his role in this. He wasn't an active participant in a murder but he did help with cleaning up the crime scene," said Lewis.
"I feel like he is the personification of evil to be given the opportunity to walk away twice and to realize what is happening isn't working and to still persist," said Reign.
GBI agents Herman Evans became a suspect when he failed his polygraph test.
Agents say the District Attorney offered Tomlinson "use immunity" for his testimony, which means whatever he said at his hearing will not be used against him at his trial but agents say this does not give him immunity from prosecution.
The grand jury meets tomorrow to hear evidence in the case and prosecutors hope they'll return three indictments.
