    NJ - Felicia Mikels, 17, Pennsauken, 18 Jan 2007

    We had a thread on the baby who was found but I can't find it today.

    2 Charged In Missing Mother, Abandoned Baby Case

    CHERRY HILL (CBS 3) ― Authorities called the case of missing Camden County mother a homicide Sunday, a day after her abandoned infant was discovered in Cherry Hill. Two suspects were arrested and charged in connection with her apparent murder.

    The search for 17-year-old Felicia Mikels, of Pennsauken, lead investigators to the Cinnaminson Creek in Cinnaminson, Burlington County around 11:30 Sunday morning.

    Police said the young mother of an abandoned infant was beaten sometime Friday night by someone she knew and was dumped in the Pennsauken Creek. Police are working to recover her body.

    The Camden County Prosecuters office labeled the investigation as a homicide, but would not confirm what led them to the creek.

    Bump

    This is a really strange one. The adorable baby, who was 1 week old and had been born prematurely, was found in a side yard and when police found out who the baby belonged to, they discovered the 17 year old mother missing and are calling her case a homicide. Two have been charged and the search is on for her body.

    They keep updating the link I provided. Now the article says:

    Uncle Charged In Missing Mother Case

    Late Sunday, Pennsauken police charged Felicia Mikel's uncle, 26-year-old Christopher Michaels, who lived in the same Pennsauken home, as an accomplice to her murder.

    Michaels' friend, 25-year-old Douglas Mandichak, of Maple Shade, was charged with her murder.

    One of the suspects is her uncle, who has since told police, he may be the father of her child. Supposedly, local news channels are saying the murder was over money.........

    Thanks kk's mom! I had a feeling one of the two men might be the father. I guess it was child support that created the money problems.

    Update at link:

    Police said allege a dispute over money led to the beating death of the young mother sometime Friday evening. During a news conference Monday, authorities said the teen was lured to bowling alley parking lot on Maple Avenue by her uncle 26-year-old Christopher Michaels, and Michaels' friend, 25-year-old Douglas Mandichak, of Maple Shade.

    "It is unclear to us whether the intent was homicide from the very beginning or whether the intent was to scare her away or to scare her into paying them back the money that they thought she owed them," said acting Camden Co. Prosecutor Josh Ottenberg.

    Authorities said Mikels was beaten with a piece of wood and her lifeless body was dumped into the Cinnaminson Creek. The men also allegedly contemplated killing the baby.

    "There was discussion between the two of them as whether or not the baby should go in the river with the mother," said Ottenberg.

    Curious if he is her biological uncle in which case it would be incest (sick) or is he the uncle by marriage? Thank god they didn't harm the baby. Do we know who has the baby? This poor girl was so young just 17, this such a sad story.

    Felicia Mikels - New Jersey

    A baby was found in a car seat by the side of the road. The grandmother identified her based on the car seat. Baby and mother had been reported missing.

    Mother was murdered by an acquaintance, while HER UNCLE watched. Then she was thrown into an icy creek. The uncle wouldn't let him throw the baby in because, THE UNCLE THINKS HE MIGHT BE THE BABY'S FATHER.

    Luthersmama, I was actually just about to post that. Thank you for those links. That's not fifteen minutes from me. Right this second they are saying there's an update on the news. When I saw where they left the baby I automatically knew that no mother would place a child where they did. It looked like they just opened the car door and put that car seat out so close to the road.

    Myspace

    Ohhhhhhhhh they both confessed. They killed this poor girl over an old debt. They also admitted they thought about killing the baby, but changed their minds. Police are still searching for Felicia's body in the water. Here's her Myspace, but appears to be an old one as I don't see pictures of the baby on there.http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm...endid=20213718

    Thank you, Colomom. How sad this is. Felicia was just a kid with adult responsibilities. By all accounts they said she was such a good mom. Unfortunately, over in Camden and Palymra and such in Jersey there's alot of violence. I'm praying people don't just blow this off because her family isn't from a great socio economic background. Thank God they left the baby. It's just so sad.
