    I know the mother is a victim, but why did she allow him to move in AND WHY SEND HER UPSTAIRS?! WHY?!!!
    RIP Alexis. Fly high.
    I can't understand her. Unbelievable.

    I'll never understand why a woman would choose an abusive relationship over being single, especially with a child involved. Another case where the mother chooses a man over her child, when is it going to end?

    Sleep peacefully Alexis. :rose:

    Article talks about how Alexis' murder affected other tenants of the building where she lived with her mother:

    Alexis’ short life, though, was far from bleak. There were people dedicated to helping her overcome enormously difficult circumstances, so she could have a happy childhood and a good chance at a stable, productive future.

    Every weekday, Alexis would spend about three hours at the after-school program in the apartment building where she lived with her mom and where she was killed.

    WTH??? She let him back in? :scared:

    And why did he get only three years for the previous attempted murder?

    This is so f'd up.

    Poor Alexis. May she rest in peace now.

    In all that time she could have gotten help from victim's services. It breaks my and makes me angry her abuser was able to move right back in and do even more damage. So many ways this tragedy could have been prevented.

    RIP Alexis. :rose:

    I know!! It's crazy! I hate that attempted murder is treated so differently when it's basically "Oh, if this and this hadn't happened you would be on trial for murder."

    I do not understand:

    1. Why this person who is clearly criminally insane was let out of prison

    2. Why any woman would let this insane person live with her and

    3. Why any mother would let this insane person near her child.

    Rest in heavenly love and peace, Alexis. You deserved better.

    Despite all the hard questions this case raises, one thing is crystal clear to me: this guy is nothing but a POS.

    Poor child.

    :(

    Yes Billy Mabou the guy is nothing but pure evil! No matter what, he was going to hurt this woman again...that's why she stayed in the car. No way could she have known the EVIL in his heart or that he would ESCALATE THE VIOLENCE ....THAT IS WHAT ABUSERS DO.
    I wish the police had just locked up the "port-a-potty" with him in it and dumped it in an extremely remote location....
    and picked him up 2 weeks later.
    Don't even need "suicide watch" on this guy... he wants to stay alive just so he can taunt his victims for the rest of their lives. (He was already sending taunting and intimidating texts to the Mother, even before police caught him.) "You da' man, Singleton, you da' man" .....the only problem is he has no idea of what it takes to be A MAN.

    Why on earth was this guy, free and living with a woman he strangled and her child?!

    Mom knew what he was capable of. That's why she was afraid to go in the building herself.

    Neighbor should have come out and got her own damn cigarettes. You don't send a child on a drug run, nor use them as a Human Shield.

    This whole thing defies human understanding.

    The mother failed her daughter on every level, it doesn't matter which way you look at it. She is going to have a lifetime to regret her actions. That won't bring the daughter back though. He should not have been there and the mother had a multitude of avenues open to her to prevent him from coming back into her life. This is really just another example of a woman putting herself and her own needs first and her daughters life and safety second. (Remember the daughter called him "daddy" and he was only in their lives for a few years).

    I'll never understand why someone targets a child to hurt the parent.

    What a vile excuse of an individual. I cannot understand why her mother would even contemplate letting him back into her home after the previous assault. Even if she didn't value her own safety, she should have valued her daughters.

    All IMO

    Here is the largest study of filicide to date, I posted it on the Aramadz Andressian case.
    The rate of children murdered by a stepdad is going up with more blended families.
    Domestic violence, jealousy and retribution, are typical of the profile, stabbing and beating as a means stepfathers use to murder? Check.

    However, you don't need profiling science to know that guy was a huge risk to that child.

    Heartbreaking beyond description. Vile, useless, nasty pieces of fecal matter targeting vulnerable, helpless children.
