So so sad.
Thank god for "neighbourhood watch". Saved a lot of time and money investigating and got him straight away.
There have been several recent stories about male teens killing their elderly grandmother. My question, did the rest of the family know this teen was dangerous. An elderly lady is no match for a teen boy. Jtol.
Not good with links, but Google his name. It appears that he may have been troubled for quite some time, and had previously suffered a life altering assault (not giving him a free pass, though). He should not have been handed over to grandma, IMO, but I'm not blaming anyone.
Going back and reading the link above at the bottom it states BM's mother thought sending him to live with grandmom was safe for him. Really! He had brain damage, how about what was safe for this lovely lady.. Knowing there's a big problem like this how could a 74 yr old handle him? Careless putting him on grandmom. Jmo.
The link below says they fought often. And in 2012 there was a domestic violence call at the house.
I think there were multiple red flags.
My condolences to the remaining family. Hindsight is 50/50. Too bad.
