Killer(s) In Barnes Teen Murder More Than Likely Already Known: Authorities Building Case That Sticks

Young Phylicia Barnes, murdered Honer Teen pictured with half sister Deena Barnes, who many have cast a cloud of suspicion upon relaed to the child's killing.

In the perpetual cloud of suspicion surrounding the Murder of  Monroe, NC Honor Teen Phylicia Barnes, many following the case ponder only the facts that have been released to the public, and with little progress having been divulged about authorities progress in the case, the suspicion continues to linger at the doorsteps of the apartment building where the studious kid was staying with her half sister. In the initial phase of the  investigation of Phylicia’s disappearance Police Cadaver Dogs literally lost the child’s scent at the entrance of that dwelling. The search for her led to continuous dead ends that many suspect were intentional misguided and bogus tips spearheaded by those who conspired to cover up the child’s killing. When State Environment Police pulled the little girls nude body from the the thawing waters of the Susquehanna River months after her disappearance, I believe that the spell of bad luck ended. Authorities now have an actual cause of death, forensic evidence, data from email accounts (obtained via federal subpoena), and the accounts by those closes to her surrounding the events that led up to the pretty child’s tragic ending. The most recent media update related to the murder case was released a few months ago after news broke about possible child exploitation, and cops revealing that a “volume of pornographic images” of a child had been discovered during the investigation.  Those reports sent a shock wave around the nation, but the case has since seemingly become ice cold. Or has it really hit a snag?

Extraordinary Silence

Barring the typical hearsay chatter from non authentic sources related to the Barnes Teen murder, there has been very little information leaked to the public surrounding the case. Not just that though, the males who were reportedly at the apartment on the day Phylicia went missing have been completely mute as well. It very well could be that they have been professionally advised to institute their constitutional right to remain silent, but a view of these individuals Social Media Pages, like Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter etc. tends to paint a very peculiar posture. They either carry on as if they are completely unaware that suspicion follows them, or they have ceased and limited their Social Media interaction with others. To say the least, they appear to be to calm, confident, and have yet proclaimed their innocence publicly related to this case. Micheal Johnson (Deena Barnes’ Boyfriend) has taken the suspicious measure to obtain legal counsel, who recently publicly professed his clients innocence related to the murder case. MJ even had a lawyer on retainer doing the phase of the investigation when  cops had ruled him out as a suspect. His actions I’m sure raised some concerns by investigators. MJ’s strange posture legally and the complete silence of his younger relatives is a very mitigating factor. I mean if it were me, the entire world would know my position as I would boisterously and publicly profess my complete innocence related to this murder. The fact that these young men remain silent, in my mind depicts tentative unconfirmed guilt. Also, authorities seemed to have ceased it’s public investigation of the Barnes killing and now appear to have shifted gears into developing  a case for prosecution, and meaning that police probably have a suspect on their radar. However, it serves cops well to deny disclosure of facts at this stage of the case in fear of compromising their efforts thus far.

Hidden Clues

Janice Sallis-Mustafa, the late Teen’s Mother has been actively engaging in online Social Media (including right here on The People’s Champion Blog) and speaking out about her daughter’s murder. Unfortunately, the mother has had to tread through some negativity from the public. Blog posters have questioned her judgment, inferred that her daughter’s death is a result of bad parenting, and that the child wanted freedom from her mother. An intelligent thinking person has to wonder the benefit of expressing such claims in the face of a grieving parent who has lost a child to violence. I’ve challenged TPC Blog posters to a standard of tact and diplomacy, simply because Phylicia’s mother participates here, and it sadly hasn’t come into fruition while someone even recently accused the child’s mother of murdering her own daughter. Moreover, the negativity directed towards Janice Sallis doesn’t appear to derive from some sick  person’s cruel prank. The comments appear to have purpose, hate, and intent to cause more pain. Understanding some of the details of the case we see that Phylicia may have been possibly targeted after a family secret was revealed. It continuously appears that the same hatred involved in Phylicia’s murder may now be targeting her mom. Only the person(s) responsible for the child’s death sticks out in my mind when considering who the people are that made the cruel comments. Janice Sallis has shown tremendous courage and tenaciousness in her response to some of the comments. Ms. Sallis appears vividly agitated when the Barnes Sisters, Deena and Kelly are cast as innocent by blog posters. She also continues to convey that she is “very Pleased” with the progress of the case. In case readers are not paying full attention, her  discontent for the older Barnes females and display of  gratitude in the authorities progress offers a hidden clue inside this case that speaks volumes. The cops know something and they are in contact with Janice on a regular basis.

Making a Case for Prosecution

I am sure that many will say, “if the cops know who killed Phylicia, why hasn’t an arrest been made”? It isn’t quite that simple considering the history of Baltimore’s Criminal Justice System. Baltimore has a reputation for some extremely questionable jury verdicts. A town that has a strong culture of anti-police sentiment may find difficulty seating a jury that will render a guilty verdict if the case is introduced predicated on mere circumstantial evidence alone. This has to be the sole culprit in a prolonged arrest for the child’s murder. It would be an even greater tragedy if cops collared the actual killer, and then had to set him free due to poor evidence within a prosecutorial summation at trial. In Baltimore, this is the reason high profile murder cases linger on.  In a crime such as this the community has to be patient, let the case run it’s course, so that authorities can do their work to make it stick. The killer(s) could walk if another bad Baltimore jury gets the case. The eerie silence that this case fosters points to the reality that the killer(s) are more likely already known. One slip up will nail the bastards for good.

    If that’s the case can’t the trial be moved to another county or state?

  2. Follower says:

    Amen David, I agree wholeheartedly when you mentioned “allow authorities to do their job”. They are experts and we have to stop being so apprehensive; we want all person/people convicted in this crime. Bryan stated “We want justice, and it doesn’t matter if it’s a family member”; that’s exactly what we want. Rushing will not bring Phylicia back, therefore, we want authorities to take as much time that is necessary to arrest these insensitive lying monsters who have demised Phylicia and brought heartaches to her mother. We need to come together collectively and pray and let authorities do their job. Authorities are being pressured by us and by the media, plus they are trying to figure out lies from the truth. Don’t worry, we will make sure that this doesn’t become a Cold Case, and if Janice has faith in the authorities then so should we.

    • Janice M. Sallis-Mustafa says:

      Dear Follower, I could NOT have said it better. Thanx for ur intelligence along with common sense. Yes, I believe that GOD will lead the law enforcement to find the MONSTERS who have pulled out one of HIS beautiful flowers and through it back to HIM. Who do those MONSTERS think they are. Believing that they are wiser than my ALMIGHTY. And I to thank you David as well for being the special person that you are to scream out justice to be done so that the ANIMALS who have done this will be locked in a cage where they belong; therefore it won’t happen to another female child/woman including the jurors and judge whom has the authority to lock them up and burn the key.

    • SANDRA says:

      WELL THEY NEED TO HURRY UP AND GET THEM DAM LIARS AND MURDERS OFF THE STREET BEFORE SOMETHING ELSE HAPPEN TO ANOTHER CHILD OF GOD, WHO KNOWS HOW MANY OTHER LIVES HAS BEEN TAKEN IN THE HANDS OF THESE ANIMALS

  3. SWEETIE says:

    I agree! At this point, I feel that the authorities know exactly who killed Phylicia and exactly what happened to her. They can’t release but so much information to anyone to prevent jepordizing the case. I am praying and I can not wait until justice is served. I really believe that it’s going to be a shame when they start arresting them. I think the sisters are probably going with them. They know exactly what happened, everything is too sketchy and they have lied too much to not be caught. The police got emails and I’m sure phone records to see who called and texted Phylicia and the exact times. It’s only a matter of time, hopefully before the 1 year mark. Rest in peace beautiful angel, you will be able to soon!

  4. JUSTICE FOR PHYLICIA BARNES says:

    HER CASE PROBABLY HAS NOT BEEN RESOLVED YET DUE TO ALL OF THE FAMILY THE BARNES HAVE IN THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, THEY ARE PROBABLY TIPPING THEM OFF AND HELPING THEM TO PROLONG THE INVESTIGATION AND TAKE THE HEAT OFF OF THE BARNES IN MD.

    • Fancy says:

      If the Barnes family has ties to the police department as well as MJ, why isn’t Internal Affairs taking over this case, it will be a year soon and you mean to tell me NOT ONE PERSON HAS BEEN ARRESTED. Does this family have that much power, a person has been murdered, this is not a petty crime.

  5. SANDRA says:

    IF I WAS THE LAW ENFORCER ALL OF THEIR ASSES WOULD BE UNDER THE JAIL HOUSE WITH OUT A DAM KEY, THEY ALL ARE LIAR’S AND MURDER’S
