The Mother of missing Arizona Girl Jhessye Shockley has been charged with her Murder.
Jhessye Shockley was only 5 years old when she allegedly disappeared from her home in Glendale, AZ. on October 11, 2011.
What stands out most in this sad, sad case is that Jhessye Shockley’s grandmother, Shirley Johnson was so vocal is pointing an accusatory finger at the police saying that they were not looking for her granddaughter because she was black.
At first, the story that Jerice Hunter, Jhessye Shockley’s mother told was that she left her three older children doing chores in the backyard and locked Jhessye inside so she would be safe. And the poof she was gone.
The story just didn’t add up.
While the Grandmother, Shirley Johnson, traveled to our capital continuing to level baseless accusations and playing the race card, more and more information about Jerice Hunter was coming to light. Grandma said,
The Glendale Police Department has not brought this to the forefront. They botched this investigation. I believe it’s because she’s a little black girl.
What Johnson did not own up to or not want to come to grips with was that her daughter had an extensive criminal history that included horrific abuse of her children.
Hunter was charged with child abuse in 2006.
That abuse included torturing her own 7-year-old daughter and causing corporal injuries to three of her other children in California.
Corporal injuries are injuries that result in traumatic injuries.
Grandma knew the 7 year girl was beaten because she reported it yet she was the first one crying, “its because she’s black”.
Police said the 7 year old girl was naked and beaten on her stomach, her private parts, her upper legs and her bottom.
The children told police that their mother would punch them and whip them and sometimes even used extension cords.
Jerice Hunter’s ex husband even joined in on the abuse and now resides in prison for sex charges.
Hunter was convicted in 2006 for the charges and sentenced to 8 years in prison. She somehow got out early and unbelievably was allowed to be reunited with her kids.
Police “knew” that the mother was guilty but they needed enough proof to finally make an arrest.
They had arrested Jerice Hunter earlier in the investigation on child abuse charges but dropped the charges because they did not want to compromise the case meaning they didn’t want to convict her of child abuse when they knew she murdered her child.
Truthfully, they don’t even know the real date Jhessye Shockley disappeared because she wasn’t even in school for a week and half before she disappeared.
The other siblings said Jhessye was abused and locked in a closet. They were threatened if they talked.
The remaining children were taken by CPS the day after Jhessye went missing and it wasn’t because she is black. It is because she abused and tortured her children and they were not safe with their mother.
Jerice was pregnant yet again when she allegedly murdered her daughter Jhessye.
She has since given birth and that child too has been taken by CPS
Poor little Jhessye Shockley was born into an awful, awful environment.
Wherever she is, hopefully she can finally rest in peace knowing that the monster of a mother who inflicted unspeakable abuse on her and her siblings has been arrested.
As for Grandma Johnson, instead of wearing shirts that said, Grandma won’t stop! and pointing the finger at others, the outcome might have been so different if she have tried to focus on really stopping her own daughter from torturing her grandchildren. She knew those kids were horrifically abused!
If there ever was a case made for forced sterilization, the mother of missing Arizona girl Jhessye Shockley charged with murder could serve as the poster child.
