15-year-old shoots parents to death, found with violent cartoons, rap lyrics and web searches about killing dad: Cops

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A 15-year-old girl who investigators say searched on her phone for “scary movies where kids kill parents” and had rap lyrics about wanting her father dead is accused of killing her parents.

Daejona M. Holmes faces two counts of second-degree murder, two counts of armed criminal action and tampering with physical evidence. She will be tried as an adult.

Holmes is accused of shooting and killing mom Kinderly Holmes and dad Brian Starr on April 9 at their home in the 5000 block of Belmeade Road.

Court records say that police found Holmes, 37, and Starr, 38, both shot to death inside their home.

Daejona Holmes reportedly called 911 from a different location and said a robbery had occurred and her parents were shot. She later changed her story and said her father shot her mother, and she shot her father.

When investigators got a search warrant and looked at Holmes’ phone, they found the web searches, rap lyrics and a video of Holmes holding a gun and dancing in her bedroom. They also found a hand-drawn stick figure illustration where one labelled “me” was pointing a gun at another labelled “dad.” A third illustration had a stick figure with X’s for eyes and blood around it.

A witness told police that Holmes called him, saying she needed help. He met her at a McDonald’s on Eastwood Trafficway where she told him her parents had been shot. The witness added he had to talk her into calling 911. She also made nine phone calls with her mother’s phone following the shooting and waited an hour to call 9-1-1.

Court documents show investigators spoke with Holmes on April 9 and again May 11 to clarify her story. During the first interview she said her parents were fighting and she heard a gunshot. She said she went upstairs and passed her father, but they didn’t exchange words, and she found her mother dead in her bedroom. She then said she picked up a gun before walking back downstairs, and shot her dad as he approached her. She said she ran in and out of the house and threw the gun in a nearby yard.

During her second interview she said she had actually gone back into the house twice; once to get her cell phone and another time to get her mom’s cell phone. She admitted to changing her clothes prior to leaving the home and moving her dad’s body close to the front door. She couldn’t explain why she didn’t leave the house upon hearing the first gunshot, why she didn’t call 9-1-1 sooner, or why she made nine phone calls from her mom’s cell phone.

Prosecutors have requested a bond of $150,000.

Police confronted over alleged ‘bait truck’ of Nike shoes left in black Chicago community

CHICAGO (WLS) —

There are calls for an investigation into a sting operation on Chicago’s South Side in which a train company used so-called “bait trucks” to arrest suspected thieves.

South Side activists say that action is deepening the divide between police and residents.

Chicago police said it was a Norfolk Southern Railway operation. That company confirmed it was working with CPD in the undercover sting.

Cell phone video, viewed more than half a million times, shows what appears to be at least a dozen officers in a covert sting. The goal, according to Norfolk Southern Railway, was to catch criminals stealing.

“Every day, unsolved murders. Drug infested. Prostitution, gang, infested and you would bring that type of element already in to a burning house,” said community activist Martin G. Johnson.

“I just felt it was unfortunate that we use our resources for this, when we are strained as it is with the police resources,” said 6th Ward Alderman Roderick Sawyer.

Sawyer was unaware this was happening and is outraged.

“As we’re trying to build trust between the community and police, this just tears it right apart,” he said.

“I’m out here every day fighting for the young guys in the Englewood community,” said activist Charles McKenzie

For McKenzie the undercover sting was a low blow.

Wednesday night Norfolk Southern released surveillance video it says shows men breaking in to a truck and taking boxes from inside.

In a statement the company confirmed it was working with Chicago police last week and “…conducted a joint surveillance operation to target individuals who have been breaking into freight containers at rail yards…”

“Youths were neither targeted nor arrested. The three individuals apprehended ranged in age from 21 to 59,” the statement said.

“How can we trust CPD when they’re doing things like that. And let me get this correct, every CPD not bad, you know we have some good officers that serve and protect well. Honestly. But when they do things like that, it makes all the rest of them look bad,” McKenzie said.

Norfolk Southern said three people were apprehended, and their ages varied from 21 to 59.

A spokeswoman also said the truck was unmarked and locked, and inside were retail shoes.

The ACLU condemned the operation tonight police should focus on reform and improving community relationships.

“Acosta’s Complaint”

New Ben Garrison Cartoon, “Acosta’s Complaint”

 

Whitehouse correspondent Little Jimmy Acosta complained to Whitehouse Press Secretary Sarah Sanders about Trump calling fake news the enemy of the American people.

 

Sarah then gave Little Jimmy an adult sized wedgie by reminding him that she and her family have been attacked and chased out of public restaurants by unhinged lefties egged on by his network CNN.

 

Little Jimmy Acosta,

crying in his pasta.

Ashes, ashes..

CNN Sucks!

Maybe Little Jimmy Acosta would be taken more seriously if he acted like an adult and not a angry toddler.

 

Little Jimmy Acosta come blow your horn,

FakeNews is on cable,

And journalism is scorned,

And where is Little Jimmy that lies to the sheep?

he’s in back of the press room-

fast asleep.
