Maynard graduated from Breckenridge High School in 2019 and was listed on the Honor Roll during her senior year. She also attended Eastland schools and was planning to attend college and study wildlife rehabilitation.

She is survived by her mother, Kimberly Winter and husband Wayne of Eastland; sister, Myranda Hammer of Breckenridge; grandmother, Gwen Pardue of Breckenridge; aunt Kippy Miller of Los Angeles, California; uncles, Tracy and Dusty Patterson of Breckenridge; numerous cousins; and a special man in her life, Dusty Moody of Carbon.

According to the Eastland County Sheriff’s Office and various news reports, Maynard was shot in the Eastland home of Sean Casey Simington, age 21, her former boyfriend. She was pronounced dead at the scene by Eastland County Justice of the Peace Jon Glenn.

Simington was taken into custody and was placed in the Eastland County Jail early Sunday morning. According to a press release from Eastland County Sheriff Wayne Bradford, Simington was charged with Murder and his bond was set by Eastland County Justice of the Peace Jesse Speer at $1,500,000.

The news release says that Simington went to the front door of the house when officers with the Eastland Police Department and the Sheriff’s Office arrived and “said he was sorry and would comply with everything.” On Tuesday, KTXS-TV in Abilene aired an interview with Simington from the jail in which he told KTXS reporter John Rupolo that he killed Maynard during an argument.

The case is under investigation by the Eastland County Sheriff’s Office and the Texas Rangers.
