“Allah” Told Him to Murder His Four Family Members

Posted in Murdered, Project New Era on April 15, 2010 by projectnewera

In a scene police described as “horrendous”, a woman and three children — one seven months old — were found shot to death in their home in Marquette Park, allegedly by the father of at least one of the children who was visiting from Wisconsin.

A 12-year-old girl fled the home, notified police, and was taken into protective custody.

The victims include a 7-month-old boy who is the son of the gunman, his 3-year-old neice Kaleisha Larry, and his 16-year-old pregnant niece Keyshai Fields. The fourth victim, a 30-year-old female, was identified as the gunman’s wife, who was also believed to be pregnant.

Damon Larry, 13, and Leonna Larry, 57, believed to be the gunman’s mother and nephew, were also shot but survived the incident. They were transported to Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn in serious condition. At least one of them is not expected to survive.

“This is a really bad crime scene, really horrendous,” said 8th District Commander John Kupczyk. “We see a lot of crime out here that is really tragic to the community and their families, but something like this is really incomprehensible”.

Mikarah Sanders Murdered Over Myspace Comment

Posted in Murdered, Project New Era, Ridiculousness on April 12, 2010 by projectnewera

*The story is about three months old but I still felt that it was worth posting.

A 16-year-old boy accused of shooting his girlfriend to death also shot himself in an attempt to make it look like someone else was responsible, prosecutors said.

Matthew D. DuBois has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of Mikarah Sanders. KOMO News normally does not identify juveniles accused of crimes, but prosecutors have charged DuBois as an adult.

According to court documents, DuBois was angry at Sanders because of a comment that an ex-boyfriend had left on her MySpace page. The two were arguing at an apartment complex at 12445 Ambaum Boulevard SW on New Year’s Eve, and Mikarah was shot once in the face.

Another girl who was in the apartment initially told police that the DuBois was not the gunman, but she later recanted her story and said she lied at DuBois’ request because she was scared of him.

She eventually told investigators that she was in another room when she heard a single gun shot. She looked into the other room and saw DuBois on top of Mikarah, and he told her to call 911, the documents said. The girl said DuBois then shot himself in the shoulder, told her to lie to police, and went to a different apartment.

Mikarah, who had been shot in the head, was rushed to Harborview Medical Center where she later died.

Neighbors have said that the couple argued constantly before the shooting. DuBois has prior juvenile convictions for witness tampering, unlawful posession of a firearm, burglary, and auto theft.

He is currently in serious condition in the intensive care unit at Harborview and is scheduled to be arraigned January 13.

If convicted as charged, he could face up to 25 years in prison, prosecutors said.

Murdered: Gina Clarke-Lewis

Posted in Murdered, Project New Era on April 6, 2010 by projectnewera

This story is ridiculously sad. Although the story below says no killer had been found, you can read the update HERE.

A 27-year-old Temple University student was shot and killed outside of her apartment in Lindenwold Friday night.
Camden County Prosecutors have yet to name a suspect or make an arrest, though family members have a theory as to who murdered the young woman.

Gina Clarke-Lewis was coming home after working at her job as a waitress at Cibo Bistro and Wine Bar in the Philadelphia International Airport when she was shot and killed right outside her apartment door, according to the Camden County Prosecutors Office.

On her way home from work, Clarke-Lewis stopped at Pat’s restaurant in Lindenwold, N.J. to pick up food. Her dinner was lying on her doorstep next to her body when police arrived at about 10 p.m. Friday, according to prosecutors.

Clarke-Lewis’s family believes that the Temple student’s ex-boyfriend shot her, reports the Daily News.

“This was a murder,” Brenda Lewis, Gina’s mother, told the Daily News. “This whole thing was planned out. Every time she moved, he followed her.”

Clarke-Lewis categorized her “mood” on her MySpace page as “stalked” the last time she logged on in January, says the Daily News.

The prosecutor’s office has not commented on any suspects or persons of interest in the murder case yet. Anyone with information should contact Camden County Prosecutor’s Office James

Jersey Couple Murdered Right After Engagement Party

Posted in Found Dead, Murdered, Project New Era on April 5, 2010 by projectnewera

Just hours after friends joyfully toasted them at their engagement party, a couple lay dead on a Jersey City street this morning, shot during what police said was a possible carjacking.

College sweethearts Michael Muchioki, 27, and Nia Haqq, 25, had planned to marry next April, those close to them said. On Saturday evening, the couple celebrated their engagement with friends and family at Delta’s, a soul food restaurant in New Brunswick, and then at a larger gathering at Perle, a club and lounge also in the Middlesex County city.

Afterward, a friend said, they begged off going to a diner, opting to return to Muchioki’s Jersey City apartment in Haqq’s Honda CRV. Police said the couple were shot around 3 a.m., a few doors from Muchioki’s home.

Today, as the news spread, their loved ones, shocked and devastated, arrived at Muchioki’s Randolph Avenue home. Many stood outside crying and hugging one another.

“My heart has been ripped out,” said Muchioki’s mother, Sandra Muchioki. “We will celebrate him (Muchioki) for the rest of our lives.”

Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio said the couple were found dead near Haqq’s vehicle. Each had been shot twice, each once in the head, he said.

Based on the crime scene and witness statements, authorities believe the couple were approached by three carjackers — a man and two women — after they parked, but that an anti-theft device prevented the car from being easily moved, DeFazio said.
He said the carjackers left the scene in a gold Pontiac Grand Am.

Mother, Her Two Children & Sister Murdered

Posted in Found Dead, Murdered, Project New Era, Ridiculousness on March 28, 2010 by projectnewera

About 12 hours after a mother, her two children and her sister were shot to death inside their Upper 9th Ward home, about a dozen men, women and children packed a relative’s kitchen.

Angel Davis, 25; Jamaria Ross, 7; Joseph Davis, 4; and Malekia Davis, 17, all died from multiple gunshot wounds sometime late Thursday, according to John Gagliano, chief investigator for the Orleans Parish coroner’s office.

Detectives on Friday did not know what circumstances led to the bloodbath. Joseph Ross, the children’s father, aided the investigation through the day, Assistant Police Superintendent Marlon Defillo said.

“We’re working this (case) hard,” Defillo added.

Joseph Ross returned to the family home at 1940 Clouet St. after work Thursday about 11:45 p.m. and found his girlfriend, their children and his girlfriend’s sister lying in separate areas of the home, bleeding badly.

Ross called 911. However, all four died before officers and paramedics could arrive to help them, police said.

“I want my family back,” Ross told an Associated Press reporter outside his home. “They never did nothing to nobody. We don’t do nothing but go to work and come home again.”

Ross told the reporter that the mother of his children was shot while hiding in a closet.
