    "T" told Barnett that she had heard her son begging for his life.

    "She said he was saying, ‘I’m sorry man, don’t kill me’ and after that the gunshot,” Barnett said.

    The mother said "T" told her that her son, 26-year-old Derrick Godfrey, was dead and that his body was located at 13700 Duncum near Ironwood in east Harris County.

    Why would anyone call the mom to tell her that? why not the police. So sad. Poor lady.

    That poor mother. To hear her son pleading for his life in the background. What an evil person to call her.

    The caller (a woman) told the mother that she (the caller) had heard him begging for his life and then she (the caller) heard a gunshot. It's horrible, but at least it's not as bad as the mom actually hearing it while it was happening.

    This sent a shiver down my spine. It reminded me of a rapist here in England who used to call his victims Mothers on the victims mobiles to brag about what had just happened to their daughters. Shocking.

    How AWFUL for this family. However, if I were a bystander and witnessed a murder, no WAY would I go up to the body, dig through the pockets to find his cell phone, and call his mother! I'd be calling 911 first thing! What's up with that? :confused::confused:

    My thought is that this young lady felt guilty but was afraid to go to the police, so she called the family instead.

    Probably. Now, I would prefer not to ever have to bury my son, but frankly, if my son was dead, I would be grateful for a call telling me where his body was.
