Wednesday I wrote an article about a 10 year old boy killed by his 17 year old brother but there was no details given as to what happened between the brothers to have caused this. It is hard for me to get past the facts that not only are these kids so young but they are killing their own relatives now.
Well according to Fox News we now are given a more detailed explanation as to what happened as it was given by the teenager himself when he talked to the investigators.
Andrew Conley of Rising Sun, Indiana talked to the investigators in a calmly fashion and showed absolutely no remorse or emotion about what he has done to his little brother. He admits to strangling little Conner while the two of them wrestled Sunday. He said later he took his brotherâ€™s body and dumped it near a park close to the Ohio River community about 90 miles southeast of Indianapolis.
He told the investigators that he has had fantasies about killing someone since he was in the eighth grade. He had always wanted to cut someoneâ€™s throat. He wanted to feel just like a character on a Showtime Series on TV called â€œDexterâ€. He claims that killing his brother satisfied his craving like a hamburger would satisfy a hunger pain.
â€œLike I had toâ€¦ like when people have something like they are hungry and there is a hamburger sitting there and they knew they had to have it and I was sitting there and it just happened,â€ said Conley in an affidavit.
The two of them were wrestling while their parents were at work. Andrew put Conner in a headlock until he passed out and fell to the floor. He then dragged his brother to the kitchen and got a pair of gloves on and began choking him. He says he choked him for about 20 minutes and didnâ€™t let go until he saw blood flowing from Connerâ€™s nose and mouth. He says his brotherâ€™s last words to him were, â€œAndrew, stopâ€
He then put a plastic bag over his head and he used black electrical tape to make sure it didnâ€™t come off as he drug the body down to the basement. He then took the body from the home to the trunk of his car but he struck Connerâ€™s head on the ground a few times first.
Andrew then drove to his girlfriendâ€™s house and while his dead brother lay in the trunk of his car he presented his girlfriend with a sweetheart ring. Later she told investigators that Andrew â€œseemed happy, more happy that she has seen him in a while.â€
Andrew Conley also admitted to the investigators that the very morning he killed his brother he had stood over his fatherâ€™s bed earlier and thought about killing him as he had a knife in his hand.
The teen went to the police Sunday night and admitted to killing his brother and he took them to where he had dumped the body.
All of this sends chills down my spine. It is so upsetting to hear details of what happened. Knowing this kind of stuff goes through someoneâ€™s mind that is so young is scary. Remember the case with 15 year old Alyssa Bustamante killing 9 year old Elizabeth Olten after claiming she did it just so she could find out what it felt like to kill someone.
Also I reported about the death of little 4 year old Alex Christopher Mercado from Mendota, California who was killed by a 14 year old that threw him inside a dryer after he killed him.
I have to wonder if these cases had any bearings on why Andrew decided to go through with his fantasies. Perhaps it made that desire stronger. Or was it really the TV show that is aired on Showtime?
All I know is that something has to be done. Parents need to monitor their childrenâ€™s behaviors more. They need to look more for signs of trouble. Laws need to be stricter on murderers, child abusers, sex offenders. Stop this little slap on the hand punishment only to be told to go home and just donâ€™t do it again theory. There is lots of desert areas in the west with no developments on it. Let the governments set up lines and lines of tents in the areas and surround them by electric fences and make the prisoners live there without the benefits of air conditioners, TV or radios. Have them take showers outside with homemade showers fixed up. Give them three meals a day without snacks for their pleasure. Donâ€™t give them any pleasurable times. Make life pure hell for them.
These days prisoners live better than some of our own citizens do that have never done anything against the law. I am sure to some a roof over there head and a bed to sleep in with three meals a day sounds like living at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. It would almost be tempting to some to do something like kill someone just so they could have a place to live. If I sound harsh I mean to be. I am not talking about someone that runs a traffic light and got in trouble for it. I am talking about the REAL criminals. The ones that are set free so the prison cells can have more room for the minor offenders. It should be right opposite. What is wrong with our system, canâ€™t they see that?
OK I will quit with my ranting. I am just so damn mad at our system that is not protecting our children. I am an American and I have a right to demand that our children are protected better. Someone needs to stand for their rights. They have a right to live.
Please join me in my daily prayers for these children. Please help the ones that are lost, find their way home. The ones that have gone from this earth I pray that they can rest in peace. My list includes: Caylee Anthony (found dead), Adji Desir (remains missing), Haleigh Cummings (remains missing), Somer Thompson (found dead), Elizabeth Olten (found dead) , Masaraha Ross (remains missing), Alex Mercado (drowned) Rebecca Marie Allen (found alive), Sandra Cantu (found dead), Anthony Holland (found alive), Shaniya Davis (found dead), Hassani Campbell (remains missing), Giovanni Gonzalez (reported dead), Nevaeh Buchanan ( found dead) and Shannon Dedrick (found alive), Angel Miguel Perez (found safe) Luis Martinez (found dead) Luke Finch (found alive), Kayvon Lewis (fighting for his life), Andrue Jankwitz and Nathaneal Hale (found safe) and Conner Conley (killed).
God bless these children and their families too.
