    VA - Martin Cobb, 8, killed trying to save his sister, Richmond, 1 May 2014

    This is horrific. These poor children and what they must have went through.
    So sad.

    Richmond Police on scene have confirmed that two juveniles, under the age of 13 were assaulted, one who succumbed to his injuries. The other has been taken to the hospital.

    How devastating for that poor girl. She will always have that sense of burden over losing her brother and his sacrifice for her. What a young hero. RIP young man. And my prayers go out to the sweet girl and her healing.

    Suspect has changed from a white male to a black teenager. Apparently, he threaten the little girl into given a false description. Even sadder. Children killing our children. Keep your kids in sight at all times. I know we don't let our almost 4 year out of ours EVER!!

    So sad. He was brave and loyal and was killed because of that. I hope what the girl takes from that is that she was deeply loved by her brother and that she was defended by a champion. A champion who felt she was worth being saved.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    I hope police got some physical evidence or other eyewitnesses statements on the suspect. And given the alleged crimes, quite likely the physical evidence was left at the scene.
    Considering how drastically description given by the child victim changed.
    Just my opinion

    This is one case where I hope they try him as an adult. He knew exactly what he was doing.

    Police have since apprehended the suspect, who turned out to be a black teenager. Initially, the victim described her assailant as a white man with scraggly facial hair, the local station WWBT reported.

    Investigators later determined that the suspect had threatened to kill the 12-year-old girl if she provided police with accurate information about him.


    That poor child; not only is she assaulted and watched her brother being murdered, the criminal threatens to kill her. I am glad that he is in custody now and she will be safe. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ge-rapist.html

    He suffered severe head trauma. Neighbors said a brick was the weapon and he has been charged with murder and strangulation.

    Oh God, it just keeps getting worse. That poor little guy and his family.
    The facts are now buried amongst theory, opinion and rumor.

    This case has hit the community so hard. For me and my child, who works in RPS, it is personal. It seems the entire community is heartbroken.

    There was a service this evening at the church near his house and a petition to honor his bravery, has been posted on the NBC 12 Facebook page.
