    Three Baltimore Children Found Decapitated
    Mother Discovers Children In Apartment

    POSTED: 9:01 pm EDT May 27, 2004
    UPDATED: 9:17 am EDT May 28, 2004

    A mother in Baltimore made a horrifying discovery when she came home -- her three children were not only dead, they were decapitated.

    A neighbor of three children in a northwest Baltimore apartment said the kids were allowed to run around freely because the neighborhood is so safe.

    Al Johnson, a loan officer, said that she called 911 when she heard the children's mother screaming in Spanish.

    Baltimore fire officials said two of the children were partially decapitated, and the third was completely decapitated.

    Police say all were under the age of 10. Their mother discovered them in the apartment around 5:40 p.m.

    Police are talking to a man they call a "person of interest."

    I may get into trouble for posting this, but I can't help but wonder;

    What the hell is the world coming to? :crying:


    May God bless the souls of the three children, as he accepts them into his kingdom.

    May he deliver swift and just punishment on those who are responsible!

    Right on Munji!


    Well, killing children does make me sick. Bad enough when adults do it to each other. But it seems that nobody has any qualms about doing it to children anymore. Just read the headlines, or turn on the TV news.

    So again, what is the world coming to?

    That is something I don't think we'll ever figure out. No matter what the point of view, there just doesn't seem to be a clear cut answer.

    to my knowledge, they are each being charged with 3 counts of murder in the 1st degree. because of the brutality of the crimes. i am almost certian they will get death,

    i would rather see them spend the rest of their lives in prison. especially considering that the ages of the suspect are 17 and 22. that's a long time to be behind bars

    Arrests Made In Horrific Slayings Of Three Baltimore Children
    Suspects May Be Related To Victim

    POSTED: 12:25 pm EDT May 28, 2004
    UPDATED: 12:49 pm EDT May 28, 2004

    Authorities in Baltimore have made two arrests in the horrific slayings of three children in Northwest Baltimore.

    (name removed), 17, and (name removed), 22, are both charged with first-degree murder.

    Police said the two suspects are cousins and uncles to at least one of the children. Two of the children were partially beheaded, one was decapitated.

    Acting police Commissioner Kenneth Blackwell called the killings "an act of someone who obviously has no conscience...a despicable act."

    Blackwell said there is no clear motive in the case.

    The children have been identified as (name removed), 9, his sister (name removed), 9, and their cousin (name removed), 10, -- a boy.

    Police said the mother of at least one of the children found them Thursday in their first-floor apartment at the Samester apartments on Park Heights Avenue when she came home from work.

    Chief of detectives Antonio Williams said there is no indication the murders were gang-related.

    And police said the suspected murder weapon is a 10- or 12-inch butcher's knife found near the crime scene.
