8 Year Old Madyson Middleton Was Lured to 15 Year Old Suspect’s Apartment Where She Was Raped, Strangled and Murdered

Oh dear God, Why do things like this happen to our precious children?

As if this story could not get any worse and heartbreaking. It is being reported that 8 year old Madyson Middleton, who went missing on Sunday, July 26 in Santa Cruz, CA and whose body was found later that day was raped and strangled prior to her body being hid in a trash dumpster. According to police, the girl was lured into the teen’s apartment on Sunday night where investigators found evidence that the girl was murdered inside the upstairs apartment before her body was carried down into the first floor garage then placed into a recycling bin.

Madyson Middleton, Rest in Peace

In a press conference on Monday Santa Cruz Police Chief Kevin Vogel said, ”It appears that she was lured to the suspect’s apartment willingly. Additionally, we’ve determined that Maddy was murdered inside of the suspect’s apartment. She was then carried downstairs to the recycle bin.” What is wrong with people, some crimes just are more heinous than others. And its not “IF” the teen who committed this vile act could be tried as an adult, it is “WHEN” this animal is tried as an adult for this sick crime. Sorry, this 15 year old has zero hope and deserves no second chances to prey upon innocent children.

Sources say that the 8-year-old girl who vanished from her Santa Cruz apartment complex Sunday night was raped and strangled before her body was found inside a recycling bin.

Madyson Middleton’s body was discovered inside of a dumpster at the Tannery Arts Center by one of the department’s detectives Monday night. Police are not sure how long the body was inside the dumpster.

“At approximately 7:55 p.m., and this is extraordinarily heartbreaking news that I’m about to give to you, our detectives discovered the body of a young female inside of a dumpster at the complex located behind me,” said Santa Cruz Police Chief Kevin Vogel on Monday night.

Teen arrested for murder in missing Santa Cruz girl’s death.

The mood turned hostile to outsiders as residents of the Tannery Arts Center, a unique artists’ community on the outskirts of this small beach town, came to grips with the fact that this may have been an inside job.

During a news conference on Tuesday, Police Chief Kevin Vogel told reporters that the little girl was probably dead even before she was reported missing Sunday evening.

“It appears that she was lured to the suspect’s apartment willingly,” said Santa Cruz Police Chief Kevin Vogel. “Additionally, we’ve determined that Maddy was murdered inside of the suspect’s apartment. She was then carried downstairs to the recycle bin.”

Police believe all of this happened in less than an hour, right after she disappeared while riding her scooter and before police were called Sunday evening.

Lonzie Barton

Missing: Lonzie Barton

The Jacksonville Sheriff said they could not be more worried about Lonzie Barton, the 21-month-old who disappeared in an alleged car jacking early Friday morning.

Dozens of deputies spent Friday searching the Jacksonville neighborhood where 21-month-old Lonzie Barton was last seen.

“We are looking anywhere that we can look to find this child, the longer this goes on that we cannot find this child, the worse the outcome is going to be,” said Jacksonville Sheriff Chief Tom Hackney.

Hackney said the boy was being watched by his mother’s boyfriend while she was at work.

The boyfriend, William Ebron Junior, told police he put Lonzie and his 5-year-old sister in his car to go pick the mother up from work but had to run up to the apartment.

Ebron said when he went downstairs he saw his car being driven away with Lonzie inside of it.

Lonzie Barton is almost two years in age, has blond hair and blue eyes, and weighs about 20 pounds.  Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at 904-630-0500.

UPDATE I: Police continue search for missing toddler through the night.

It has been one full day since an Amber Alert was issued Friday morning and police began searching for 21-month-old Lonzie Barton.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is searching for the child, who was last seen outside a unit at the Ravenwood apartment complex on South Old Kings Road about 2:20 a.m. Nearly two hours later, police issued an alert for Lonzie, who was believed to be taken during a car theft.

According to Chief Tom Hackney, the mother’s boyfriend, 32-year-old William Ebron, was getting ready to pick up the mother, 25-year-old Lonna Lauramore, from work at Wacko’s Gentlemen’s Club around 2 a.m. He gathered Lonzie and his 5-year-old sister into an orange 1995 Honda Civic.

Friday night police scaled back the search for the evening but as many as 60 detectives are expected to help pick up the search again Saturday morning.

UPDATE II: Sheriff: Missing Jacksonville boy’s caregiver is lying.

Authorities say a caregiver for a missing Jacksonville toddler has been lying to investigators about the child’s disappearance.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office told reporters Saturday that 32-year-old William Ebron had been arrested and charged with two counts of child neglect.

Chief Tom Hackney said investigators believe Ebron was lying about the disappearance of his girlfriend’s son, 21-month-old Lonzie Barton.

The car was recovered 15 to 20 minutes later a short distance from the apartment complex and Lonzie was nowhere to be found.

Court records show Lonzie’s mother and Ebron had a rocky relationship. Just two weeks ago she filed a third domestic violence injunction against Ebron.

Hackney said investigators are still treating the case as a child abduction and don’t know whether Lonzie is alive or dead.

He said Ebron is not being cooperative with investigators.

As reported earlier, Matthew Graham has been in Shasta County Jail on a probation violation, and is being held without bail. He was the first to report the baby missing from her crib a little after 5 a.m. Thursday morning.

Kent said the violation stems from DUI and forgery cases. During questioning, Matthew Graham gave investigators information that he took medication that had not been disclosed to his probation officer, which is a violation of conditions, Kent said.

UPDATE II: Sheriff: Missing baby Ember most likely not alive.

Monday marks the fifth day search and rescue teams from all over California have been searching for missing 6-month-old Ember Sky Graham.

Ember was reported missing from her crib early Thursday morning by her father, Matthew Graham, who is a person of interest in the disappearance of the baby.

Almost 80 volunteers from statewide search and rescue teams and 60 family members searched the countryside on Monday for the six-month-old. The search efforts are concentrated in the area of Clear Creek Road in Happy Valley.

Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko said given the time that has passed and the heat over the last five days, they are looking to recover the body of baby Ember to see if there’s any “recoverable evidence there.”

Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Ember Graham, please contact Shasta County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit at (530) 245-6135.

Rescuers spent eight hours searching for the baby within a five mile radius of the 4100 block of Candy Apple Boulevard.

Detectives cleared the scene Friday night after spending all day gathering evidence inside of the home where they believe Janna Rivera was last seen.

“We’re looking for a three-month-old child and that’s the utmost concern for us,” said officer Christopher Wilburn, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

The search began when IMPD received a call from Janna Rivera’s mother early Friday morning. She told them that her daughter was missing and could be dead.

UPDATE I: A spokesperson for the police department Richard Riddle said, “At this point we’re three days out from the baby’s disappearance. Based upon that, we do not believe that baby Janna is still alive.”

IMPD Lt. Richard Riddle said that they believe the 3 month old baby is no longer alive and the father remains a person of interest, but no arrests have been made. The authorities believe the infant was placed in a dumpster on Friday.

Investigators continued their search Sunday morning at a landfill where 3-month-old Janna Rivera may have ended up after she was put into a dumpster on the northeast side of Indianapolis.

Sunday morning, a spokesperson for the police department Richard Riddle said, “At this point we’re three days out from the baby’s disappearance. Based upon that, we do not believe that baby Janna is still alive.”

Dozens of officers in white gear poked through the South Side Landfill on Sunday following a day of heavy rains searching for Janna Rivera. Her mother reported her missing from their home on the city’s northeast side Friday. Indianapolis police spokesman Lt.

Police look for Janna’s remains at “South Side Landfill”.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department moved their search for missing 3-month-old Janna Rivera to a landfill on the southwest side of Indianapolis Sunday morning, but they suspended the search around 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

Police were prompted to look for Janna’s remains at “South Side Landfill” after the baby’s biological father tipped police that she was placed in a dumpster on the city’s east side. “We believe that the baby was placed into a dumpster on the east side of Indianapolis on Friday morning,” said IMPD Lt. Richard Riddle. “That trash from the dumpster was transferred to a transfer station out in Mount Comfort. A search was done in Mount Comfort yesterday with negative results.”
