    Search Warrant Suggests Garner Teen Attended Party After Neighbor's Murder

    Kenneth O'Neal Charged With Death Of Amanda Maynard



    POSTED: 7:02 am EST January 4, 2005
    UPDATED: 7:08 pm EST January 4, 2005


    GARNER, N.C. -- Search warrants returned on Tuesday morning reveal new information into the murder investigation of a Garner teenager.

    Kenneth O'Neal, 19, is charged with stabbing and killing his 15-year-old neighbor, Amanda Maynard on New Year's Day.

    According to the statements from police, O'Neal's mother, Donna, is the one who called 911 at 3:12 a.m. Saturday saying she heard a scream from across the street.

    The police statements indicate that O'Neal confessed to killing Maynard. In some points, O'Neal is described as being distraught, and at other times police found him completely unaffected by the crime.

    According to the statements, he apparently told police he entered the girl's home, she screamed and he stabbed her in the head.

    I believe so. I am still checking. I am just now finding new info. I probably should've posted this in the trial forum, I had found that news story from today about the death sentence request, and there wasn't a thread started so I didn't know where to post it.

    I am astounded at an article I just found on the web and I will not even post it here. I was reading it and I wasn't sure where it was going, but by the title, I had an idea. It was the most racist, filthy piece of writing I had ever read. People are disgusting. :sick:
    Talking about how little Caucasian girls would have a better chance at life if other cultural people didn't live here. I couldn't believe the writer of the story and how completely biased and obviously ra.... I am just not going to post any further about this.

    Anyway, mods, if you want to move this thread somewhere else where it would fit better that would be good.
    Thanks.

    Victim's family speaks out
    1/5/2005 9:35 AM

    A lot of new information is coming out in the case of a murdered Garner teen. Now Amanda Maynard's mother, Tammie Edrington, is speaking out...

    Also according to the search warrants, after O'Neal left Maynard's house he went to a party up the street where he cleaned his hands of blood. He also sat downstairs, told a few jokes and played the piano. Then later in the night he went back to his house where he told his mom he had heard a scream and told her to call 911.
    The warrants also said O'Neal's mother lied about hearing the screams herself. Now Maynard's family says O'Neal deserves only one punishment...death.

    “I will make sure he does,” Edrington added. “I will see to it."

    This is so sad. So....do we know his motivation? Was it rape? Did he rape her after he stabbed her? A beautiful little girl gone forever!

    I'm confused. The earlier links are dated 2005, but then the last article linked is dted 2006 and says she was killed over the weekend. This just happened? Or was it last year?

    It happened last year. they are seeking the death penalty now. That is the current story. There was no thread on this prior to that, so I posted all the stories together here.

    It's a good trial to follow and it is good to have the background articles posted before the trial. I hope he does get the death penalty.
