Murdered children; an epidemic


Another missing child found murdered this week in Maryland

The list of missing and murdered children is growing.  The latest victim: ten-year old Kami Ring, a fourth grader from Charlestown, Maryland.

Kami was visiting her grandparents near the town of Port Deposit for an overnight stay. She went to bed Sunday evening, June 9, Monday morning she was missing from her bed, and was not found in the home.

The window was open in the room where she slept; the screen was out of its track.  No other clues were immediately discovered.

Search teams from Maryland State Police and several other local organizations came to search the surrounding area.  Monday evening, around 6 pm, Kami was found; dead.

According to local sources she was found lying in tall grass beside an abandoned shed approximately 60’ from her grandparent’s home.

Kami had been dead for several hours.

Her body has been taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy.

Local news outlets are reporting a ‘person of interest’ has been detained and placed under arrest.  No charges filed yet.

The sad stories continue.

A similar case gained national interest in 2005 when convicted sex offender Jon Couey kidnapped nine year-old Jessica Lunsford from her bed, carried her out of her grandparent’s home to mobile home approximately 150 yards away where he was staying with relatives.

Couey kept the girl in a closet for three days while local sheriff, police and citizens searched door to door for her. During this time Couey raped Jessica, put her into black trash bags, then buried her alive under the back steps of a mobile home three houses away from where Jessie had  lived with her grandparents.

Couey was found guilty of murder and sentenced to be executed.   Before the execution date, he died in prison of cancer.

Orlando, Florida

Caylee Anderson, a two-year old, lived with her grandparents and 25-year-old mother Casey Anderson near Orlando, Florida.  She went missing in 2005.  The case gained national attention as the search for her continued until in 2008 when a badly decomposed body of a child was found, and thought to be that of Caylee Anderson.

Casey Anderson, mother of Caylee was arrested and stood trial for murder of her daughter.  The nation was outraged when she was found ‘not guilty’ by a jury and released.

Florida again:

Sarah Lunde disappeared from her home in Ruskin, Florida, in April 2005. Her partially clothed body was found a week later in an abandoned fish pond.

Strangled by male friend of her mother.

Prosecutors charged David Lee Onstott, who had dated Sarah’s mother Kelly May, of strangling the thirteen year old. He went to the trailer where she and her mother lived, looking for Sarah’s mother where he engaged the daughter in a dispute before choking her.

Questioned by detectives, Onstott confessed to murdering the teenager.

He remembered choking her, but could not say where. Nor could he say how Sarah’s body was moved and left in a pond. He acknowledged drinking heavily that evening.

“Can you tell me the reason why maybe this happened?” one of the detectives asked.

“The sad part is, no,” Onstott replied.

These are only a few of the more public cases, many more did not receive such publicity and most remain unsolved.

  1. Elizabeth Smart was taken out of her bed also. How very, very sad. Childhood should be a time of magic and love, not this.

    FUCK. My God, seriously, is this the state of the human, being? Truly? It surely cannot be all there is.

    • I does seem someone in the family should have seen some hints that something was unusual in the uncle’s behavior – however that doesn’t suggest that could have stopped him. This is a strange story.
