There is a sad and tragic update in the case of missing 6 year old Ahlittia North. The 6 year old’s body was found in a trash bin not to far from the child’s home in Jefferson Parish. The police have issued an arrest warrant for Matthew Flugence, the nephew of Ahlittia’s stepfather.  Matthew Flugence sometimes baby sat for the 6 year old. According to the ME,  Ahlittia North was stabbed twice in the neck that was most likely the cause of death. She also had two stab wounds to her abdomen. Who would do such a thing to a child?

That’s when they found the girl’s body in a garbage can, wrapped in a blanket from her house and covered in a garbage bag, Normand said.

Investigators looked at the garbage can during their first search of the neighborhood, so they know the body was put inside sometime after Saturday — but they still don’t know when, he said.

It’s possible Ahlittia’s body was placed there so the garbage trucks would take it away. Normand said garbage collection in the neighborhood happens Tuesday mornings.

Sheriff Newell Normand said Matthew Flugence was arrested Tuesday night while walking in Westwego. The suspect’s brother, 21-year-old Russell Flugence, was arrested and charged with obstruction of justice for allegedly withholding information about the case. Once again we are witness to a crime that should never have taken place. Matthew Flugence faces first degree murder charges in the death of Ahlittia North; however, this is not his first brush with the law and a crime against a little girl. Flugence had an outstanding warrant on a charge of sexual battery involving an 11-year old Harvey girl.

Normand says the 20-year-old Flugence was taken into custody without incident. Deputies say at the time of his arrest he was carrying a knife.

Flugence faces a first-degree murder charge in the death of North, and there is an outstanding warrant on a charge of sexual battery involving an 11-year old Harvey girl.

5 Year Old Jocelyn Rojas Abducted in Lancaster, Pennsylvania Saved by 15 Year Old Temar Boggs and his Friend from a Sex Offender (Kidnapper ID’d as Registered Sex Offender Harold Herr)

HEROES OF THE DAY …

As we are surrounded by so many who only want to cause trouble, promote vigilantism and divide us … along comes two heroes where race was irrelevant and all that mattered was the safety of a 5 year old little girl. God bless these two kids who stepped up, made a difference and saved a child from a certain peril at the hands of her abductor.

Five year old Jocelyn Rojas was kidnapped while playing in her front yard at the Lancaster Arms apartments  in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. According to police, Jocelyn Rojas was lured away from her home by a man who promised her ice cream.  The search began for the 5 year old girl as 15 year old Temar Boggs and his friend Chris Garcia took off on their bicycles trying to find her.  About two hours later and about a half mile away from her home, the two boys spotted Jocelyn in a sedan and chased after the car on their bikes. After being followed, eventually the kidnapper let the child out of the car. She ran to Temar and said that she needed her mom.

From The Raw Story, speaking to a reporter with Lancaster Online on Saturday, 15-year-old Temar Boggs said he was helping move an elderly woman’s couch at a nearby apartment complex Thursday evening when someone approached asking if he’d seen a little girl.

Five-year-old Jocelyn Rojas was playing in her front yard in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, when she vanished Thursday afternoon. Authorities believe she was abducted by a man who lured her by offering ice cream.

For two hours, neighbors and police scoured the area and asked if anyone had seen her.

Police are looking for the suspect, described as a white male between 50 and 70 years old. He was driving a reddish-purple or maroon car with round taillights.  The man was wearing green shoes, green pants and a red-and-white striped shirt. He walked with a limp.

As reported at US News, on Monday the Lancaster County district attorney identified a registered sex offender, Harold Herr, as a person of interest in a potential kidnapping case.

Terry Smith_missing

Authorities in Southern California are searching for possible human remains at the home of an 11-year-old autistic boy who vanished over the weekend.

Menifee Mayor Scott Mann says investigators are treating the home of Terry Dewayne Smith Jr. as a crime scene.

Riverside County sheriff’s Deputy Albert Martinez tells the Riverside Press-Enterprise that detectives were led to the home shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday based on evidence indicating there might be a body there.

However, authorities aren’t releasing any details.

UPDATE I: Remains found; investigators serving search warrants.

Remains? Hmm, the boy has supposedly only been missing since Saturday. One would think that there would be an identifiable body, not just remains at this point. That is if he actually went missing on Saturday and sadly, not if animals possible were involved.

Investigators serving a search warrant at the Menifee home of an 11-year-old autistic boy missing since Saturday have found remains and are trying to determine if they are human, sheriff’s official said.

The search for Terry Smith, missing since Saturday, has been suspended and investigators have been combing the yard of the boy’s Menifee home since early this morning.

Sheriff’s officials went to the property about 1:30 a.m. based on information there may be human remains there, said Deputy Albert Martinez, a spokesman for the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. But Martinez did not disclose who led investigators there.

A Special You Tube Thank You from Former Ohio Kidnap Victims Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus & Michelle Knight … Victims No More, They Are Getting Their Lives Back

THE FOLLOWING IS THE DEFINITION OF COURAGE.

The Ohio kidnap victims get their life back with love and support of family friends, loved ones … and you!

The three young women held captive in a Cleveland home for almost a decade break their silence and thank the public for their support in a public statement posted on YouTube. Kudos to the three young woman for taking their lives back and not allowing the animal who took so much for them to define them and ruin their lives forever.  Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were held captive by Ariel Castro in an unspeakable house of horror for a decade.

Smiling and appear upbeat, Amanda Berry, Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus speak separately in a three-minute, 30-second video released on YouTube.

“I may have been through hell and back, but I am strong enough to walk through hell with a smile on my face and my head held high,” Knight says, reading from a statement. “I will not let the situation define who I am. I will define the situation. I don’t want to be consumed by hatred.”

Knight says she is building a “brand new life.”

THANK YOU FROM AMANDA BERRY, GINA DEJESUS & MICHELLE KNIGHT

From the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

They say they appreciate the community’s financial help and prayers. DeJesus’ mother, Nancy Ruiz, is quick to thank the Cleveland Courage Fund. The fund is a bank account set up to receive donations to help the three women make the transition from 10 years of captivity to independence. It has received $1.05 million from 9,200 donors, and some of the money has flowed to the women and their families already.

In the video, an off-camera voice asks DeJesus what she would say to people who have contributed to the fund and have helped her and her family. “I would say thank you for the support.”

Berry calls the support unbelievable.

“Everyone who has been there to support us has been a blessing,” she says. She adds that she is getting stronger each day but continues to seek privacy.

Let’s hope these three young ladies are back on their way to getting some semblance of normalcy in their lives and are allowed to.
