To Catch A Killer: Phylicia Barnes Relative Says She Suspects Her Own Family In The Late Teen’s Murder

The Late Phylicia Simoe Barnes

Before the body of pretty young Philicia Barnes was even found and  pulled from the chilly waters of the Susquehanna River, many in the public who were following the case became suspicious of the account that led up to her murder by those closest to the child in Baltimore. The authorities investigating the killing remain tight lipped about new leads, if any, pertaining to who maybe responsible for the child’s murder. Recently, the child’s mother Janice Sallis-Mustafa gave a chilling account of her interaction with Philicia’s Baltimore family that may offer insight into a possible motive in her killing. The mother’s interview sparked a rare public emergence from Phlicia’s Biological Father and Brother in an attempt to refute what Janice Sallis-Mustafa claims she experienced during and after her marriage to Russell Barnes.That attempt failed miserably when Russell made a debut post on TPC Blog exclaiming, “You people are messing with the wrong family” and another comment that indicated that he himself apparently believes he is in “battle”. Also, others chimed in conveying displeasure with Janice publicly speaking out about past family troubles, and seemingly trying to disassociate Phylicia’s killing from Janice’ relationship with Russell Barnes. However, comments made by the child’s brother Bryan Barnes confirmed Janice’ account regarding Russell’s deadbeat dad history. Not only that, but Russell’s comments which had a veiled inference to threats and violence, more than likely qualified what the grieving mom said, to be absolutely credible. Moreover, a recent TPC Blog Poster, Sandra Barnes, who identified herself as the niece of Russell Barnes’ adoptive father, made some explosive comments about her own family, and nearly substantiated much of what Janice Sallis-Mustafa said about her relationship with her ex-husband’s side of the family. Sandra Barnes revealed that when she first learned about Phylicia’s disappearance that she herself became suspicious of her Cousin Deena Barnes. Sandra says she believes “Deena is covering for Micheal  Johnson and his family, if not for her own self”. Sandra made it clear that she believes that they all are complicit in some way related to Phylicia’s murder. She said that she had been taught not to associate with those family members, because “they are no good people”. These comments here on the TPC Blog are probably some of the most damning that we have seen related to public suspicion surrounding the Barnes sisters account about what happened to Phylicia Barnes. For the first time we see a defection from the Barnes clan’ solidarity like public posture related to this case. Sandra Barnes went even further, boldly proclaiming “I’m not scared of none of you bastards”. Sandra called her family members “liars and murders”, but fell short of explicitly naming who those comments were directed toward. Sandra feels that her uncle should have never adopted Russell Barnes. She said, “Maybe everyone would have peace right now” if Russell had not been adopted by her family. Sandra also places blame on russell himself for the character of his other children. In the early stages of the investigation into the murder of Phylicia, Sandra says she went on the “Pray for Phylicia Barnes” Facebbook page and tried to give her theory about the case. Sandra said that the Barnes Family became so agitated with her comments that she was blocked from making post on the site. She believes that her comments hit home and was bringing the focus rightfully on Russell Barnes and his daughters. Sandra expressed that she is grateful that family discouraged her from having a relationship with those family members, and that she feels they may have even killed her. Sandra also said that there was a lot of truth to what Janice Sallis-Mustafa said in her TPC Blog Interview, and she referred to Russell Bares as a “child abuser” and “woman beater”. Sandra Barnes’ comments, though a personal perspective about this tragic case by one person, is explosive and confirms that members of the Barnes’ own family suspect involvement by other Barnes family members in the murder of young Phylicia Barnes, if not at the very apex of this horrific crime.

    AND WITH ALL THIS INFORMATION STILL NO ARREST HAVE BEEN MADE!!! THIS IS RIDICULOUS!!!!

  2. Just Curious says:

    All who were around Phylicia during the Christmas Holiday of 2010 need to take a lie detector test!!! Can the FBI or State Police request a judge to subpoena these people and make them take a lie detector test?

  3. Nicole says:

    WOW! So russell really is a BASTARD huh? In more ways than one LMAO & SMH!!! Him and the rest of the barnes clan are absolutely ridiculous and lower than low and I can’t wait until their asses are placed under the jail where they belong. I can’t believe that he is around hollering about staying focused and coming up with shams and fleecing people out of money talking about a track scholarship when the girl never ran track. russell is dirty as hell. He has been manipulating the media and playing games and misleading the police with bogus searches to bide those thugs more time to get rid of Phylicia’s body. I think it is such a shame!

    Kudos to you Sandra for admitting the truth. I knew he was a low down dirty dog and he proved it, with the nerves to show up to that girl’s school a year and late and dollars shorts and he had never been there to begin with.

    russell you are a pathetic, creepy, low-life jerk and I can’t wait until you, mrs. piggy and horseface and the johnson clan are under the jail . . . I don’t even know you and I H A T E U, . . . . .

  4. Buffy The Deadbeat Daddy Slayer says:

    Why are you hiding now Russell? Why won’t you let bryan the so called spokesperson defend these accusations? Could it be because their true? You don’t have control of this blog like you bums do over on the prayer page where manipulate the admins to block people who expose you for the cowards you all are! Can’t wait to see you, ugly horseface deena and fat ass kelly in orange jumpsuits!

    • Nicole says:

      Exactly! His monkey ass is ashamed now that he has been exploited. The truths hurts huh russell? I wonder how he’s going to be at the memorial he’s having this month . . . He is a sin and a shame himself. I can’t wait to see them in their jumpsuits either. It’s a pure shame. I can’t believe they did that poor child like that. And still covering up and lying.

  5. FANCY says:

    NOT ONE OF THE 4 MUSKETEERS SHED A TEAR!!

    PICTURES SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS!!!

  6. JFPB says:

    Sandra, I agree with you on several points. I think listening to the advice to stay away from a side of the family is most likely why you’re still ALIVE to fight for justice for Phylicia. Secondly I also agree if I had knowledge of how my BELOVED family member died and stayed quiet then I am as guilty but how many times has the murderer (s) been the first one PRETENDING (press conferences, searches etc.) to want the truth until the police knock on THEIR DOORS???? As far as Russell Barnes, he has to live with this murder on his hands and conscience so nothing he does to save face surprises me. Russell, ask my ex if my children were allowed around his OTHER children I DIDN’T KNOW OR TRUST?????

    No one should be surprised this child’s TRAGIC death has brought such sadness and anger!!! JFPB……

  7. JFPB says:

    Oh Sandra as stated on other sites I’ve always suspected it has been you posting under the name of Janice Sallis Mustafa because I don’t see her talking teen/young adult speak on boards. She came off too intelligent on Nancy Grace! hahaha Keep up the fight girlfriend for justice!!!
