Man kills his ex girlfriend, her current boyfriend and his child for crying
A 22-year-old Kansas City man faces murder charges after two teens and a 1-year-old boy were found slain inside a south Kansas City home. The man allegedly killed the baby for crying. Family and friends tell KCTV5 that the baby was the 1 year old son of the suspect. Joseph L. Nelson faces three counts of first-degree murder, three counts of armed criminal action and one count of burglary. He is being held on a $1 million bond. The victims were 17-year-old Raytown South High School senior Bianca Fletcher, her baby JoJo and her 18-year-old boyfriend Shannon Rollins Jr.
It is reported that Nelson is an ex-boyfriend of Fletcher and was the father of baby JoJo.
“It’s sickening. I can’t imagine,” Rebecca Fletcher said about the brutal deaths of her sister and baby nephew.
Rebecca Fletcher said Nelson was possessive towards her sister. “Her and Joseph had problems together. I just figure he was jealous,” she said.
There were no signs of forced entry at the Fletcher home, no shell casings found and some of the victims’ personal belongings were missing, according to court records.
Nelson also told another witness that he had gone to Fletcher’s home to “chill.” He said he had an argument with her, and she threw a diaper at him. He went on to say he shot her and said, “I was there and saw it, so other things had to be done.”
According to court records, two other people were with Nelson inside the home at the shooting of the shooting.
Nelson allegedly claimed that one of those two people had shot Fletcher, but that person would tell police that he wasn’t inside the home. That person who is identified as “Witness #4” said Nelson told him, “I did something bad. I did something I don’t think I can live with.”
“That’s what I can say. This is for all. Not just my family. My daughter and grandson were precious. We are hurting and angry but we are grateful justice is being sought for my daughter and grandson. Regarding Shannon, as a father, I approved of Shannon – he was a very good influence on my daughter. We will miss him. I praise God that the police acted so quickly,” Richard Fletcher said.
“Shannon was our heart. Our child was a wonderful young man, full of life. He loved everyone. He tried help those he could. Each of us needs to teach our kids how to solve problems without senseless violence, without resorting to a gun. Shannon was determined, he was talented – he wanted to be a dancer. The loss is unbearable for us, but we will find strength in God. And the light of the world is just a little more dim because Shannon’s light no longer burns. “
