    This is horrific. These poor children and what they must have went through.
    So sad.

    Richmond Police on scene have confirmed that two juveniles, under the age of 13 were assaulted, one who succumbed to his injuries. The other has been taken to the hospital.

    How devastating for that poor girl. She will always have that sense of burden over losing her brother and his sacrifice for her. What a young hero. RIP young man. And my prayers go out to the sweet girl and her healing. :rose:

    Suspect has changed from a white male to a black teenager. Apparently, he threaten the little girl into given a false description. Even sadder. Children killing our children. Keep your kids in sight at all times. I know we don't let our almost 4 year out of ours EVER!!

    So sad. He was brave and loyal and was killed because of that. I hope what the girl takes from that is that she was deeply loved by her brother and that she was defended by a champion. A champion who felt she was worth being saved.

    I hope police got some physical evidence or other eyewitnesses statements on the suspect. And given the alleged crimes, quite likely the physical evidence was left at the scene.
    Considering how drastically description given by the child victim changed.

    This is one case where I hope they try him as an adult. He knew exactly what he was doing. :stormingmad:

    Police have since apprehended the suspect, who turned out to be a black teenager. Initially, the victim described her assailant as a white man with scraggly facial hair, the local station WWBT reported.

    Investigators later determined that the suspect had threatened to kill the 12-year-old girl if she provided police with accurate information about him.


    That poor child; not only is she assaulted and watched her brother being murdered, the criminal threatens to kill her. I am glad that he is in custody now and she will be safe. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...-trying-protect-sister-12-teenage-rapist.html

    This case has hit the community so hard. For me and my child, who works in RPS, it is personal. It seems the entire community is heartbroken.

    There was a service this evening at the church near his house and a petition to honor his bravery, has been posted on the NBC 12 Facebook page.

    I'm just 5 miles east of the city in Varina. And you're right the community is shaken. This has touched us all. Those poor babies. I can't even comment without tears.

    Oh my gosh. This just breaks my heart. Such a sweet little boy, courageously protecting his older sister. His memory will always live on, and his sister will always know just how much her darling little brother loved her. An absolute tragedy.

    I hope they lock this POS up for life. He tried to rape a child, then threatened to kill her, AND killed her younger brother. He's 16, he knew far better.

    & This is just about as sick as it could possibly get but it definitely explains a lot:
