*As I write this, its incomprehensible to me, the degree of hate that would have to consume a person who would do such a thing as murder their own child, along with her mother, because he was ordered to pay $600 in child support.
But it is exactly what Daron Maurice Boswell-Johnson of District Heights, Md. did. And on Wednesday, he was arrested.
NeShanté Davis and her 2-year-old little girl, Chloe, were found in the parking lot outside of their home.
Little Chloe was still in her car seat when the police arrived. Her mother, just outside of the car.
Perhaps Davis was on her way to work as an elementary school teacher, dropping her daughter off at childcare along the way.
Prince George’s County Interim Police Chief Hank Stawinski seemed to be in a state of shock as he spoke during a press conference following the shooting.
“This is a profoundly sad day, and my prayers go out to the family of the victims of this crime that frankly shocks the conscious. The notion that someone would be bold enough to take the life of a child, take the life of a young woman, and think there would not be consequences is simply unacceptable in Prince George’s County.”
And Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela D. Alsobrooks added,
“This is absolutely unacceptable, in any civilized community, that a child should be killed in this way.”
NeShanté Davis’ employer, Prince George’s County Public Schools, also made a statement. To read what they had to say, visit Naturally Moi.
