Unsolved Child Murders And Deaths

Updated on September 6, 2016
Froggy213 profile image

In 2007, Greg's 23 month old Grandson was killed. At that point, he found a need to write about his family, crime, and local issues.

I heard today that the case of Adam Walsh has been closed. A drifter who died in prison 12 years ago has been determined to be Adam's killer.

I am both sad and happy for John Walsh, Adam's dad. John is the head of America's Most Wanted. I have great respect for him and his mission.

Pictures of Adam, John and Adam's killer are below.

Jonathan

The reason I am writing this hub is Jonathan; my 23 month old grandson who was killed June 23rd, 2007.

Here is a special site I made in Jonathan's memory:

  1. Jonathan's Place

I have been thinking a lot about Jonathan lately. I still haven't heard anything from Laclede county prosecuter Angie Hemphill Wright.

Our case is a whole lot different than Adam's. You can take a look at the pictures at the right to get an idea of the loving boy we lost much to early in life. My heart aches daily. How long does it take to get the justice Jonathan deserves?

The video below was put on you-tube by a good friend of mine. It is an older interview done of me by Angie Weidinger of Both Fox 27 and channel 10 news in Springfield, Missouri.

I am going to point out some other child death cases in this hub that have not been solved. If you have ideas or information that may be relevant to any of these cases, please contact the proper authorities or even contact me and I will.

We need to protect the children. Children are our Future!

Donte Manning

This 9 year old was fatally shot almost 4 years ago in a Washington D.C. neighborhood.

Donte and some other children were playing and it was somewhat late. A man pulled a handgun and started firing. There were many witnesses, but despite large rewards, no one has come forward.

Deborah Palmer

  Deborah Palmer was found strangled to death in Washington state in the year 1997. She was not raped but police believe it was a sex crime. This case has been unsolved for entirely too long. Could her killer be living in another state?

Dannarriah Finley

Dannarriah Finley was four years old when she was abducted from her home, raped and strangled in Texas in July 2002. Police had few suspects but never had enough evidence to charge any of them. The case remains unsolved. $50,000 reward for information.

Peggy Chappell

Peggy Chappell was only 6 years old when she was raped, beaten and stabbed to death in Alabama in the year 1993. Her claims to know who abducted her child, and says the man had taken Peggy before but always brought her back safely. The mother refuse to identify the individual to authorities. $10,000 reward for information.

Amber Hagerman

The last time Amber Hagerman's mom saw her alive was 8 minutes before a man called 911 to report seeing a man snatch the girl off her bike. Four days later, her body was found nude. Her throat had been slit. The abductor was a white or Hispanic man driving a dark truck. The crime happened in the Dallas area of Texas in the year 1996. The "Amber Alert" was started in memory of her to let the public know when a child is abducted.

Cynteria Phillips

13-year-old Cynteria Phillips was found nude on August 15, 2000. She was found behind Edison high school in Miami, Florida. Police believe the killer lived near the location in which she was found. Cynteria obviously put up a fight with her attacker, as her body was badly bruised. $115,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

Just a Few

I am barely putting a dent in the amount of unsolved child murders. What is wrong with these people. In many cases many of these killers were released from prison for other murders. Why do we let some of these people out of prison. Anyone who murders a child, in my opinion, should NEVER get a second chance.

The poll below is to get a discussion going. If you have had a child murdered or are related in some way to a victim or the criminal, lets discuss these issues. What should be done? Children are being murdered daily right here in the United States. Let's here your views!!

      i believe in the death penalty for first time affender's . Most likely when caught the first time it's not his first or second time . And I believe something needs to be done with the D.As that plea bargain these cases to lesser charges just to get a conviction . And the same for judges that allow it .As for God if he sees all then I myself have no use for him if he wont stop it . We as parents have to take back are rights to protect are children and say to hell with the laws that protect this scum

      First and foremost Gina, please realize he is with Jesus. I had to do that. Second, if we surrender to God, He will get the vengeance. I am also still suffering over Jonathan, but by doing what I stated, I have watched God taking care of the guilty. All who harm children will pay dearly.

      May God be with you.

      My 17 year old aunt was raped and murdered by two men in the 1950's near Alton, MO. I have been told that the men were killed in prison but I really don't know.

      Truly heartrending, Froggie. I've had the privilege of helping in the children's ministry in church and am just touched by the children's innocence simple outlook on life. We need to let children be children and have a shot at life. Meanwhile, we need to make sure the monsters that abuse kids do not get away with it. Thank you for raising awareness and playing a part in the effort, Froggie.
