Who Is Zachary Latham? Truth About The Viral Stabbing Video
Zachary Latham made the journey to Vineland, New Jersey, to live with his grandparents when he was 16 years old. Soon after moving there, the little child began to experience peculiar sensations toward his neighbors, particularly the veteran William T. Durham, who was 51 years old at the time.
William had voiced his displeasure to Zachary’s grandparents regarding the hazardous manner in which Zachary used his vehicle in the neighborhood.
While Zachary Latham was allegedly speeding down Thornhill Road, which is the street where both of their homes are located, Catherine Durham, Durham’s wife, warned him to slow down.
This is when the trouble started. That interaction between Zachary Latham and Catherine Durham was captured on video and shared on social media as the first step in what the Durham family has described as a sustained campaign to harass them over the course of several weeks.
The video gained more than three million views on TikTok when it became popular on that platform.
The argument came to a head on May 4, when Catherine Durham accused Latham of swerving toward her son, who was riding his bike on the street at the time. Her son is 17 years old.
Later on that day, as Zachary and his wife, Sarah, along with two other people were attempting to return home in his pickup truck, Durham Sr. moved his own pickup truck out of his own driveway to block Latham’s path.
Catherine Durham walks up to Zachary Latham’s truck while recording the interaction on her phone while the two vehicles are parked side by side.
She demands to know the reason for him swerving at her son and attempting to hit him. Once the two of them argued, William’s wife approached Zachary about the situation.
After that, Zachary proceeded to throw an elbow at William’s wife, shove her, and knock the phone out of her hand, all while she was on the phone.
During this time, Zachary’s wife was using her phone to record the entire event as it unfolded.
After that, the Durham sons continued toward Zachary’s residence in order to engage in additional conflict with him. And not long after that, William and his wife came over to participate. The situation rapidly deteriorated from that point onward.
After grabbing a few knives and a revolver from inside his home, Zachary exited his property in order to confront Durham and his wife.
Following that, Zachary discharged his weapon at one of the Durham sons.
Before running inside his garage, Zachary sliced William on the right arm with the knife that he had been carrying.
William pursued Zachary as he moved toward the garage, the stun gun was discharged multiple times, and Zachary’s wife pleaded with him to put down the knife.
Murdering To Be Famous
Throughout this time, Zachary’s wife continued to capture the event for the purpose of uploading it to TikTok.
In what was assumed to be a fatal wound and ultimately resulted in Mr. Durham’s passing, he was stabbed beneath the armpit, which punctured his lungs.
The attorneys representing Mr. Durham are under the impression that Zachary intentionally led William to his death so that he might become famous on social media.
In addition, Zachary made it a habit of causing trouble for the Durhams in the hopes of eliciting responses from them, which he then captured on video and uploaded to his TikTok channel.
The fact that he brags and boasts about being a famous cop killer merely demonstrates how sickened and depraved he is.
Both Zachary Latham and the Durhams were charged with first-degree manslaughter as well as two charges of assault in the second degree.
The Durhams were also charged with trespassing and assaulting Zachary.
