Three teenagers from Mississippi are now facing capital murder charges after they stole a car and murdered a 6-year-old boy that was in the backseat of the car.
According to the “Associated Press,” Byron McBride, 19, D’Allen Washington, 17, and Dwan Wakefield, 17, stole a car that was parked outside of a store. They quickly learned that Kingston Frazier was sleeping in the back of the car.
At the end of their spree, they shot the boy and left him for dead.
Conservative Tribune reports:
Frazier was found dead of gunshot wounds to the head in Gluckstadt, about 15 miles north of Jackson. He was in the backseat of the Toyota Camry, which had been abandoned in a muddy ditch. According to WLBT-TV, police said McBride was the one who pulled the trigger.
Frazier’s mom, Ebony Archie, had left the car running when she went into the store. After she went in, a Honda Civic pulled up next to the car and one subject entered. Both cars drove off.
After Archie reported her car missing, police began their search. However, authorities say Archie did not initially tell police her son was in the car, which meant an Amber Alert wasn’t put out until 4:30 a.m.
“When we found out later that there was a child in the back, we immediately notified the highway patrol (who) put out an Amber Alert,” Hinds County Sheriff Victor Mason said at a news conference, according to the Jackson Clarion-Ledger.
Sadly, the Amber Alert was unsuccessful and the car was later found at 10 a.m. the next morning.
Archie broke into tears after learning that her son had been killed.
Family members said she was unable to stand and a “family member carried her down a flight of stairs at the district attorney’s office in downtown Jackson,” the Clarion-Ledger reported. “In between screams and sobs, Archie cried out, ‘I told y’all that s*** wasn’t right, I told y’all.’”
This is beyond disturbing. What kind of scumbags murder a 6-year-old child? What kind of harm could a boy so young have caused? Thank God these thugs were captured and hopefully they will be executed, because if they are willing to kill a boy that young, there is no telling who else they would be willing to kill in the future.
Kingston didn’t deserve to die like that. Share this story on social media for Kingston.
