3yr old boy murdered, a reason I weep for humanity

Post by Azazal » 2007-03-22 04:48pm

3 Charged With Murder in Ga. Boy's Death
SAVANNAH, Ga. — A convicted child molester and his father took turns sexually assaulting a 6-year-old boy while the molester's mother watched, then they choked the boy to death, according to an indictment issued Wednesday. The indictment charges all three family members with murder and child molestation in the slaying of young Christopher Michael Barrios, whose body was found last Thursday inside a trash bag dumped by a roadside.

District Attorney Stephen D. Kelley said he will seek the death penalty against 32-year-old George David Edenfield, who has a prior child molestation conviction from 1997, and his parents, David and Peggy Edenfield.

"This is one of the most horrific crimes that I have seen in 21 years of prosecutions," Kelley said.

Christopher went missing for a week before police found his body about three miles from his trailer park home outside Brunswick, a Georgia port city 60 miles south of Savannah. The suspects lived in a mobile home across the street from the boy's grandmother.

The indictment contains grim details about the case that police and prosecutors had not previously revealed. It says Christopher died from asphyxiation March 8 — the day he was reported missing — after the suspects choked him while "ignoring his complaints that they were hurting him." The indictment does not say which of three caused the boy's death.

It also claims George Edenfield and his 58-year-old father sodomized the boy and forced him to perform oral sex while Peggy Edenfield watched and masturbated.

"They deserve the worst, for them to torture my son like that, every last one of them," said Mike Barrios, the slain boy's father.

A friend of the Edenfield family, Donald Dale, was indicted on charges of concealing a death and tampering with evidence. Kelley said Dale did not become involved until after Christopher had been killed.

Nathan Williams, the attorney for 57-year-old Peggy Edenfield, declined to comment Wednesday. Attorneys for George and David Edenfield did not immediately return phone calls.

Glynn County police arrested the Edenfields four days after the child vanished while playing alone outside. Police Chief Matt Doering said all three suspects confessed to playing roles in the boy's abduction.

Police have said Dale admitted to investigators he helped the Edenfields dispose of Christopher's body.

Other charges against the Edenfields include false imprisonment, cruelty to children and enticing a child for indecent purposes.

Police have described George David Edenfield as mentally slow, but not retarded and capable of understanding right from wrong.

Ironically, the Edenfields moved into the trailer park where Christopher lived last year because of a Georgia law intended to keep child molesters away from children. Sheriffs' deputies told George Edenfield in September that he had to leave his home near downtown Brunswick because it was too close to a playground. Georgia law prohibits registered sex offenders from living within 1,000 feet of schools and other places that draw children.

His family went to live in the trailer park in October after George Edenfield was arrested for failing to move as ordered. He pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced to probation March 5, three days before Christopher disappeared.

George Edenfield was required to register as a sex offender after he pleaded guilty in 1997 to molesting two boys, ages 7 and 9. Prosecutors said he rubbed his clothed body "in a sexual manner" against the boys, who also were fully dressed. He was sentenced then to 10 years on probation.

His father, David Edenfield, pleaded guilty to incest in 1994. He was accused of having sex with an adult relative who was not his son.

In cases like this, just line them up against the wall.

Disgusting.


It does, however, show this is probably learned or inherited behaviour.

More incentive to neuter and castrate molesters, so they can't breed more.

Is there really a crest of warped, sick, twisted torture-murder crimes going on these days, or is it just the media latching onto more of them all of a sudden?

In Idaho we have the Shasta Groening case, and the last couple days here on SDN we've had a flood of wierd perverted crimes reported. It seems like a much higher instance than usual.
Something about Libertarianism always bothered me. Then one day, I realized what it was:
Libertarian philosophy can be boiled down to the phrase, "Work Will Make You Free."


In Libertarianism, there is no Government, so the Bosses are free to exploit the Workers.
In Communism, there is no Government, so the Workers are free to exploit the Bosses.
So in Libertarianism, man exploits man, but in Communism, its the other way around!

That this is reported is only evidence of our greater news coverage today. I'm sure monsters like this didn't spring into existence during the 20th/21st centuries, but because the world is a smaller place, we hear more about this stuff and get ever more desensitised.

I just accept this as par for the course for our species. It doesn't seem to evoke much of a reaction anymore, and I have not enough hate in me to imagine a cruel punishment for such people.

In a world of near seven billion, you're inevitably going to find a lot more twisted fucks stalking of so called civilisation.

God damn and shit....I saw the father on the news the other night, if he was aware of these details then, he certainly showed some fortitude in front of the cameras; I'd be straghtjacketed in a fucking padded cell trying to beat my brains out against the wall right now if this were my kid.

It's only a shame that cruel and unusual punishment isn't allowed. For this at worst the animals involved will get a clean death. Is that justice? I don't think so.

It's just reported more. Anyone can come up with shit like this or shit that's even worse than this, it stands to reason that there are some people that just act it out because they are just more evil than the rest of us. They're not different enough, though, and that's what fuels my misanthropy. Look at the writings of De Sade, the treatment of POWs by the Japanese, people are just prone to cruelty, we've been bred that way, unfortunately.

More than likely, if you met them without knowing what they'd done, they'd be just as sympathetic people as friends back home, just as human. This fact, along with knowing what humans are capable of with surprisingly little prompting is what makes me reject the assumptions of total human supremacy and human value prevalent in moral systems.

Removal from the genepool is my stance on the matter. Neuter them, imprison them for life, or just plain kill them. And check up on the rest of the damned family, since child molestation seems to be some tradition.

Emphasis mine.

I just wanted to point out that calling these people animals is far to lenient.
Animals have no real grasp of right and wrong. They don't gain pleasure from watching other creatures suffer. They kill for food. The kill to protect their young or themselves. Some kill for amusement, but even so, they simply don't comprehend that they're inflicting suffering, and they certainly don't take pleasure from it.

These people aren't animals, they're monsters, and it sickens me to think that the human species is in so many ways capable of being much, much worse than animals. I truly pity the parents of this child, and I can't think of a punishment cruel enough for the attackers. This sickens me.

Remember that vasectomy and tubal ligation are also options, and less drastic ones than neutering, life impresonment, or execution.

Um, no. These people are heartless, twisted excuses for human beings that get off by raping and killing a six year old boy. I in no way consider imprisonment or execution to be "drastic" in this situation. If they only got castrated, they'd be getting off lightly.

well, obviously! :wink: But next month local chapters of Prevent Child Abuse, CPS, Social and Health Services, and organizations like these will have an increase in public awareness as well as an increase in special programs, seminars, etc..that kind of thing.

On that note, I had originally meant neuter AND imprison, not just one or the other. In which case, death would most likely be the more merciful option. What with the way prison inmates just love child molestors.

Toy, shut the fuck up with the spam.

Sadly, the odds are that such things will continue to happen. Like Valdemar says, with such a large population you can't expect to be free of lunatics, sadists, etc. You can either fall into a screaming heap and give up (like Rye) or you can try to improve the world and the human race.

While I support the death penalty for violent lunatics, this isn't revenge - it's simply that they could never be reformed, so just put them down like a mad dog.

I wonder how much oversight there was for the perpetrators during their periods of probation for their various offences in the past. I wonder if the authorities had any idea that they were capable of this kind of act.

Just another reason to watch my girls like a hawk. Like I needed one.
