Buffalo, NY (WBEN) The death of Isabella Tennant, like any murder, is never easy to get to the motive or the suspect. But one former homicide chief says a child murder case can get to the most hardened cf cops.
"I've been retired for nearly 17 years, and I still have visions of children who were murdered," says Charles Fieramusca. He says while officers never allow one case to take precedence over the others, they will aggressively pursue child murder cases.
But to get a confession or a motive, Fieramusca says detectives can't be as aggressive with the suspect. "They have to be very sweet to the suspect, although they don't want to," says Fieramusca. "They say there's an art and a science to solving crimes, and the art is the right demeanor, the right tone, to get the motive."
A little child is dead at the hands of a 16 year old for no good reason,(there is nothing she could have done that would have been "a god reason" she wont go to kindergarden, she wont go on picnic's or walk a puppy or kitten. She wont watch a movie with mom or dad. Who cares why he did it, if it is proven he did it, end his life like he did hers... hang him
no reasonable answer
I don't truthfully think there is a reasonable answer for this horrible crime. Not only was the poor child killed but her body was put in a trash can. The killer deserves no mercy and to be in general population for some torment by other inmates. The only other justice would be to find the guy hanging in his cell.....
It may not cure the pain felt by the family now; that poor child is gone forever. The benefit of figuring out why this troubled teenager committed this horrible act will help law enforcement officials figure out these types of cases in the future...(Ones that aren't as easy to solve). This knowledge may also tip off friends/relatives BEFORE these crimes are committed.
we have enough knowledge
Although I agree that studying these sick individuals will help understand and hopefully capture future attackers, we have studied them for years, it is time to begin executing these individuals as they will never again be able to function in our societyagain. The greatest instinct we have as humans is to preserve our lives, there has never been a greater deterent than death! Eliminate them and they will never be able to hurt another child.
