    Details of Disappearance

    Washington was last seen at his aunt's home at a housing project, Lafayette High Rise Apartment Complex, in the 1000 block of Orleans Street in Baltimore, Maryland on September 11, 1992. He was playing with friends on the third floor of the building at the time he was last seen. Washington walked downstairs for a frozen cup and disappeared.

    Washington's mother's former boyfriend, Keith M. Garrett, was charged with kidnapping and extortion in October 1992. He was twenty-two years old at the time. Garrett allegedly told Washington's mother that her son would be returned to her if she handed over custody of the couple's daughter. Garrett is not biologically related to Washington.

    Garrett was arrested near the intersection of Aisquith Street and Orleans Street in Baltimore, which was the alleged location of the exchange of siblings. In addition, a witness saw him with Washington after the child's abduction. Garrett pleaded guilty to extortion. The kidnapping charges were later dropped for lack of evidence, but Garrett was charged again in January 2004 with kidnapping Washington and causing his death. An individual who had been incarcerated with Garrett stated Garrett confessed the child's murder to him. Garrett allegedly told the witness that he had kidnapped Washington, taped his mouth shut, hid him in a shed, and returned later to find the child deceased. He then supposedly buried Washington in Leakin Park.

    In May 2006, Garrett entered an Alford plea to second-degree murder in connection with Washington's case. An Alford plea means Garrett does not admit guilt, but acknowledges there is enough evidence to convict him at trial.
