Prosecutors have charged three teen boys in Kansas City, Missouri with the murder of 14-year-old Alexis Kane.
Kane's body was discovered behind The Bay Water Park in Kansas City. Issac M. Carter, 17, Dominic McDaniel, 18, and Ce-Antonyo D. Kennedy, 17, are all facing first degree murder charges stemming from the shooting death of Kane. Via Fox4KC:
According to court documents, a surveillance video from January 11 captured three subjects picking up Kane from a 7-Eleven gas station, in a white Chrysler four-door vehicle with temporary tags. Later a vehicle fitting that same description was seen on video surveillance outside The Bay Water Park. The footage revealed a victim, believed to be Kane, being assaulted and shot by the unidentified parties.
According to Fox Kansas City, Kane was in contact with Carter (who was calling himself "Malik Suckface" on the social media site). Her friends told police they took her to a gas station on Sunday, Jan. 11 and she was later picked up there by Carter and McDaneil. They went to an apartment and later went to the water park. At some point Kennedy struck Kane with a gun and shot her five times before Carter took the gun from him and shot her a few more times. Via CBS:
Multiple 9mm shells were found at the scene, according to court records. Police say it took over 100 local and federal officers to find the suspects.
"There is just no sense to this. I can't give you a motive. It's senseless. A 14-year-old is no longer with us. I cannot give you a reason that makes any sense," Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker told KCTV.
Kane's family is devastated and telling local media they want the death penalty in the case. "I was hurt because nobody didn't show any [sorrow], they didn't show anything," Kane's mother LaShonda Kane told Fox Kansas City. "In fact, one of them kind of smiled at me so that was, so that was pretty hard to deal with. I don't see how he thought it was funny."
McDaniel, Carter and Kennedy are all being held on $500,000 bond each.
