Three Boys Found Dead in Phoenix Home, Murder Suspect Mom Rushed to Hospital

 

Three boys were found stabbed to death in a Phoenix house and their mother, who is suspected in their death, is clinging to life with self-inflicted slash wounds.

The two older boys, 8-year-old Jaikare Rahaman and 5-year-old Jeremiah Adams, were found dead in a bedroom closet in the north Phoenix home while the youngest, 2-month-old Avery Robinson, was found further back in the closet, stashed in a suitcase, police said. The bodies were partially dismembered.

The boys’ mother, who may have been pregnant with another child, was rushed to the hospital after she had knifed herself in the abdomen and neck, cops said.

She was later identified as 29-year-old Octavia Rogers.

The woman had grown up in Phoenix but moved to Virginia in 2014, AZ Central reported. She had just moved back to her hometown for the birth of the 2-month-old.

She had been living at her mother’s house in Phoenix, where police found the bodies of her sons.

Rogers’s brother told police that his sister was behaving erratically before the bloodshed.When he arrived to the house after work on Wednesday, she started talking to him about religion and then locked him out of the house.

After her brother busted into the house, he found her with multiple knife wounds in the bathroom. She tried to drown herself when her brother went to get towels for the bleeding woman.

She told her brother that she was pregnant while she stabbed herself in the stomach.

While Rogers was rushed to the hospital, she told police officers that her children were with another family member.

The bodies were later found during a routine search of the home.

“The boys were killed during a several-hour period Wednesday night after the woman’s mother left for work and her brother returned home from work before midnight,” a police spokesman told the local NBC affiliate.

Police said they are unaware of any history of mental illness. Cops expect to charge the woman if she survives her injuries.

This comes as her mother sat in court battling for custody of her three other children.

Child Protective Services gave a disturbing account of the horror that they say happened before Kharisma Richardson was found dead.

While investigators work to find out what led to Kharisma’s death, her mother Daveeta Walker was in court Wednesday for a preliminary examination to determine whether she is fit to have custody of her three other children.

Child Protective Services revealed Wednesday that 4-year-old Kharisma was beaten with a belt, punched in the face and chest, and suffered burns so badly her feet and hands had blisters.

Two of the fathers of Walker’s children sat in court, also fighting to gain full custody of their sons after the suspicious death of their sibling.

Kalamazoo Assistant Prosecutor Carrie Klein tells us a child abuse charge was initially submitted against Daveeta Walker in the case involving Kharisma, but was later denied pending autopsy results.

Colton Brandt Turner Abused by Mom,Her Friends Knew-Now He’s Dead

Colton Brandt Turner (2)

Austin, Texas-

A few days after his mother Meagan Work told police that her 2-year-old son Colton was missing-sadly police have unraveled the horrible truth about what really happened to him. Police this past weekend found his remains buried near Felter Lane in Southeast Austin. He was never really ‘missing’.

What Really Happened to Colton:

According to law enforcement the child’s mother’s boyfriend Michael Brandt Turner (back on July 6 or 7) told police he heard Meagan yelling for him. He ran outside and found Colton was not breathing normally. Investigators indicate he may have been having a seizure. Turner told investigators he climbed into the car and was going to drive the toddler to the hospital but Work told him they’d get in trouble and Colton would be taken from them. Instead, Turner drove to a motel where Work put ice on Colton’s head.

Work told investigators she fell asleep and discovered Colton dead the next morning. She and Turner waited until sundown to bury Colton. The pair wrapped him in a purple blanket and buried him in a shallow grave that Turner dug with a knife. Then, they decided to move Colton’s body to a different, deeper location off of Felter Lane. Turner borrowed a shovel to dig the grave, then covered the site with wood and Sheetrock.

I won’t go into all the changing stories and excuses from the mother in this case, and how could this cold-hearted heathen possibly abused her son until it resulted in his death in July.What I WILL go into is how all the friends and relatives of this child FAILED HIM miserably! CPS plays a part in this but the bigger blame goes to those people who saw the bruising on his face and little body in PHOTOGRAPHS on Facebook and did NOTHING until it was way to late, cause he was already gone. WHAT IN God’s name were you waiting for to call the law? Or how about the people who just took Meagan’s word that the little boy was staying with unknown unheard of friends-and not seen for several weeks at a time?

You people all have Colton’s blood on your hands, along with his mother and her boyfriend! Were you so afraid of the cops you guys couldn’t step up and help to save this little boy?! Forget your fear, but what about his? He was being beat horribly don’t you think he had a much BIGGER FEAR-of his own MOTHER and her man?! I’m so sick of people like this, this little boy didn’t have to die if only someone had the guts to call the POLICE! Read more about the case and read the affidavit at KXAN.

Note: Mom and boyfriend are being charged with tampering with physical evidence as of now, with additional charges pending.

NY Dad choked 7-year-Old Daughter to Death; Upset His Wife Filed for Divorce

Gabrielle White, 7

NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. — A suburban New York City man was arraigned on murder charges Wednesday in connection with the death of his 7-year-old daughter, whose body was found in her bed inside their New Rochelle home, reports CBS New York.

Police said Neil White, 47, is believed to have suffocated his daughter, 7-year-old Gabrielle White, but said the Westchester County Medical Examiner’s office will determine the exact cause of death.

Investigators reportedly say a babysitter walked into the horrific scene around 3 p.m. Tuesday, finding Gabrielle dead in her bed and her father bleeding from his wrists.

“She saw Mr. White had cuts to his wrist, saw some blood and then she checked on the girl and saw she wasn’t moving and called us,” said New Rochelle Police Captain Robert Gazzola.

Police said his wife, Michelle Hord-White, had filed for divorce in April. The two lived separately but had joint custody. The family pastor spent Tuesday night with Hord-White, an executive at NBC, after the tragic discovery.

“She is a woman of great faith. I expect her to get through this. It will not be easy, and will never be over,” the Rev. W. Franklyn Richardson told CBS New York of Hord-White.

Gabrielle’s babysitter, Tonette Mahon, was shaken and still in shock Wednesday from the girl’s death.

“She was beautiful and I know the family, just — she was the light, she was the light of their lives,” Mahon told the station.

Neil White is a writer and political consultant.

“He lost himself and in that deep dark place he acted out. And there’s no logic or reason. It pushes the boundaries of reason that a father could kill his daughter,” Rev. Richardson said.

The little girl, described as quiet and friendly, was in the second grade at the Ward School in New Rochelle.In addition to soccer club, reading, and girl scouts, Gabrielle reportedly loved her church youth groups.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month!

Child abuse and neglect affect children of every age, race, and income level. However, research has identified many factors relating to the
child, family, community, and society that are associated with an increased risk of child abuse and neglect. Studies also have shown that when multiple risk factors are present, the risk is greater.

From National Child Welfare.gov

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. People often ask what are some key causes or factors in cases of child abuse. I did some reading and I will list some of the risk factors that can lead to cases of child abuse and neglect below:

  • Immaturity. Young parents may lack
    experience with children or be unprepared for
    the responsibility of raising a child.
  • Unrealistic expectations. A lack of knowledge
    about normal child development or behavior
    may result in frustration and, ultimately,
    abusive discipline.
  • Substance use. The effects of substance use,
    as well as time, energy, and money spent
    obtaining drugs or alcohol, significantly
    impair parents’ abilities to care for their
    children.
  • Inter-generational trauma. Parents’ own experiences of childhood trauma impact their relationships with their children.
  • Isolation. Effective parenting is more difficult when parents lack a supportive partner, family, or community.

These circumstances, combined with the inherent challenges of raising children, can result in otherwise well-intentioned parents causing their children harm or neglecting their needs. Evidence shows that the majority of families who have these circumstances will not abuse or neglect their children.

Protective factors act as buffers to help many families who are under stress parent effectively and not harm their children. We should sponsor community events that support families and include a broad representation of  family-
strengthening partnerships.

Some examples:
Town hall meeting. Invite local legislators,
parent leaders, and other community leaders
to discuss issues affecting local families.
Human services fair. Invite partner organizations
to present on topics that help parents meet
their families’ needs, such as finding adequate
medical care, safe and affordable child care, and
substance abuse treatment.

Ethnic street fairs. These events offer families
a way to enjoy their cultural heritage in the
company of others. Community organizations
can provide prevention information and
educational materials at booths and through
family-friendly activities such as parent-child
craft activities and puppet shows.

These are just a few ways to create community events that support families and include a broad representation of the community’s family strengthening partnerships that could prevent abuse where you live.

 

Mom Shoots 6 -Year-old Daughter to Death

 

Hot Springs Virginia-

A 27-year-old Virginia mother allegedly fatally shot her 6-year-old daughter.

Darla Hise called 911 several times on Saturday night, a Bath County law enforcement source said. But she allegedly refused to provide her name and address, saying only that she thought her daughter had been shot.

 



Police traced the call and officers arrived at Hise’s home, then deputies found her daughter, Abigail, dead from a single gunshot wound.

Also inside the home was Hise’s 3-year-old son, who was unharmed. The boy has been placed in the custody of a family member, the police said.

After interviewing Hise, detectives placed her in handcuffs. She is charged with one count of murder and remains in custody on an unspecified amount of bail, according to jail records.




“She was a beautiful, happy child who loved to ride her bike, draw, color and play with her little brother, ‘Ben Ben,’” the obituary read. “She was a frequent visitor to Lake Moomaw where she loved to swim and play in the lake.”

Hise has yet to enter a plea and court records do not identify her defense attorney.
She had never before been charged with a criminal offense, the police source says.

RIP Abby

Father Beats Daughter to Death with Belt

 

1aammarah2

 

Decatur, Ill.- Ammarah Reynolds was just 4 years old, when her life came to a violent sudden end by her father, Darrell A. Reynolds. He was jailed under a $2 million bond after admitting to police he’d beaten the girl with a belt so viciously that she ended up  unresponsive at the local hospital.  According to police and medical personnel Ammarah’s little body was covered in bruises and scabs. Mr.Reynolds told the police he’d hit the child so many times with a belt that he’d lost count.

 

On Aug. 31st at 4:51 pm, Ammrah was pronounced dead. Soon after her mother Dal Von Taylor was also arrested and charged with felony endangering life/health of a child. Mom told police that Darrell was also abusive to her as well as Ammarah.

Why she failed to get away from this man and continued to place her child and herself in danger is beyond me. I believe even if she was a victim of Ammarah’s dad’s violence-she had a responsibility to protect her child and leave him. She didn’t and now her child is dead and she too will face serious prison time.  She had a choice and the poor child had no say but the child paid the price for mom’s decision to stay.

3-yr-old Jordyn Dumont Was Missing, Found Dead-Mother’s boyfriend Charged

jordyn-dumont6_20160817195249221_5702827_ver1-0_640_360

 

Bessemer City NC– Investigators found the body of 3-year-old Jordyn Dumont  last month near her Gaston County home and charged her mother’s boyfriend with killing her.A preliminary autopsy report Thursday revealed that the toddler died from blunt force trauma.

Police said Billy McCullen called 911 to report Jordyn missing. Police and volunteers searched for the toddler, and her body was discovered soon after in the woods.

Gaston County police said Thursday that they responded to 16 calls for service at the home where Jordyn lived with her mother, Jaylene Dumont, and McCullen. Only one of those calls was directly linked to the welfare of Jordan and her younger sister. William “Billy” McCullen has been arrested and charged with first degree murder in Jordyn’s death.

He’s being held in the Gaston County Jail with no bail. Gaston County DSS is being blamed by the girl’s biological father Josh Kinnett, who lives out of state. He called them to ask about a welfare check on Jordyn when he found out her mother was being physically abused by McCullen. DSS went to check on the children and found nothing wrong and closed the case. The father has now hired an attorney.
