Aunt of dead kids drove around with their bodies for months after killing them, police say

Documents allege that 33-year-old Nicole Michelle Johnson drove around the dead children in the trunk of her car for months. One of the children had been in the trunk of the car since May of 2020.

Baltimore County Police have charged Johnson with failure to report the deaths of the children, child abuse resulting in death, and neglect.

The bodies of 7-year-old Joshlyn Marie James Johnson and 5-year-old Larry Darnell O’Neal were discovered just after 11 p.m. on Wednesday when officers conducted a traffic stop in Essex, Maryland. 

Johnson was initially pulled over for speeding in a car that had fake paper tags from West Virginia. The vehicle was unregistered and uninsured, police say.

The officer issued citations to Johnson, at which point, she allegedly stated:

It don’t matter, I won’t be here in five days. Y’all going to see me on the news, y’all going to see me on the news making my big debut.

The dead children were discovered as the car was being prepared to be towed. Documents state that when Johnson went to the trunk of her car to get her belongings, the officer smelled “the unmistakable odor of decomposition.”

Johnson removed a plastic tote and a clear trash bag from the car. The officer noticed maggots in the clear bag. Johnson claimed that there were just dirty blankets inside the bag.

The officer continued to have Johnson remove the blankets, revealing a suitcase. When Johnson revealed the body of a child inside the suitcase, officers say she ran. She was apprehended a short time later.

The body of the second child was discovered inside the plastic tote by homicide investigators.

Johnson told investigators that both children are her sister’s. She apparently turned them over to Johnson because she said that she could not care for them.

Johnson also told investigators that she was at the Regal Inn in May of 2020 when she became angered at one of the children and hit her several times, causing her to fall and hit her head.

At that time, she said she placed the child in a suitcase and put the suitcase in her car.

Johnson also told investigators about a time two months ago, when the second child wanted to lay down in the back of her car. She said she noticed blood on the child’s left leg but didn’t say more about the injury. The child never woke up. At that point, she put the child in the tote and kept him in the trunk next to his sister.

The autopsy revealed how malnourished the children were. The 7-year-old child weighed 18 pounds when she died. Her 5-year-old brother weighed 21 pounds.

Man allegedly plotted on dark web to kill, eat underage girl!

A depraved Texas man was busted in an undercover sting that revealed he allegedly wanted to kill and eat a little girl, authorities said.

Alexander Nathan Barter, 21, was arrested Friday after reportedly posting on the dark web looking for help to fulfill his necrophiliac and cannibalistic desires, according to news station KTRE.

An undercover agent posing as a parent responded and offered his underage daughter to Barter, who expressed interest in raping and killing the girl.

Barter reportedly replied to the officer saying, “Nice! I’m in East Texas. How old is your daughter? Can we kill her?”

In a series of emails, Bart came up with a disturbing plan to meet the father-daughter duo and take the girl back to a Joaquin hotel. The suspect instructed the agent to return home after dropping off his daughter and report her missing to police.

But as Barter was leaving his house for the meet-up, authorities arrested him outside his residence while carrying a plastic trash bag and knife, according to KTRE.

The 21-year-old allegedly confessed to discussing his plans online to kill, rape and cannibalize a minor.

He was booked at Shelby County Jail on charges including attempted capital murder and attempted sexual performance of a child.

Shelby County District Attorney Stephen Shires released a statement saying the incident was a “continued reminder that parents should always be vigilant and aware of what their children are doing on the internet.”

“The dark web, and the individuals that operate there, pose a continued and increasing threat to the safety of our children,” Shires said. “Jurisdiction, geography, and distance serve as a minimal, if any, impediment to some very terrible activities. In this matter, Law Enforcement mounted an effective and integrated effort to deal with this situation.”
