13-Year-Old Charged As an Adult in Death of 2-Year-Old Sister

Tony McNary and Mike Paluska, WALB (Atlanta), December 18, 2012

The DeKalb County 13-year-old girl who has been charged as an adult in the death of her 2-year-old sister made her first court appearance on Tuesday.

Police said Tyasia Jackson stabbed Sasha Lamaya Ray multiple times, killing the toddler.

Shelton Latroy Ray told CBS Atlanta News that he is the biological father of Sasha, who was found dead Monday afternoon outside their townhome on North Waldrop Trail in Decatur.

According to investigators, Tyasia was babysitting Sasha and her four other young siblings while both parents were at work.

According to Ray, Tyasia called him Monday about 11 p.m. from jail and confessed to the murder.


Ray said Tyasia was caught with a boy inside the townhome while he and her mother were away from the house.

“My wife’s co-worker lives across the street. She was watching them. She seen my older daughter let a boy in the house. She called my wife at work. My wife told her to go get the boy out of the house,” Ray said.


Hillman said she found the boy hiding inside a closet. Ray said after the boy and Hillman left, Tyasia told her three siblings to go upstairs while Sasha stayed downstairs with her.

“She made all the other kids go upstairs and then she stabbed [Sasha] by the back door. Put her outside came back in the house, cleaned up the blood, changed clothes then came outside and started looking for her with everybody else,” Ray said.

When her parents returned home, Ray said they asked Tyasia where Sasha was and began looking for her.

Hillman said she was the first person to find baby Sasha.

“I told the mom, ‘I found the baby,’ but I didn’t go into detail,” Hillman said.  “It wasn’t for me to go into detail, I let the husband do that.”

Ray and Tyasia’s mother then found Sasha’s body in the backyard with serious injuries.

“I thought a dog or something had gotten to her because of the bruises, the scars and the bleeding. Murder was far from my mind at that time. I didn’t think anyone had did something to her,” Ray said.


Investigators said Sasha was stabbed several times in her chest area.

    More black “family values” being expressed. I wonder when His Hopefulness will make a teary-eyed statement to the press and use “all of his powers as president…” to stop this kind of thing from happening again.


    • Oil Can Harry

      Another victim of knife violence! (Sigh)

      When will Congress finally stand up to the powerful cutlery industry and pass common-sense restrictions on silverware sales?

      • The car crash that killed Dallas Cowboys reserve squad player Jerry Brown, the one where the other Cowboys player Josh Brent was allegedly driving drunk, involved Brent’s 2007 Mercedes sedan.

        Time for the credible world to divest from Daimler AG.

        As an aside, it is illegal in England to sell standard table knives and forks to people under 18.

        • IstvanIN

          So they steal them from the kitchen cupboard?

        • Oil Can Harry

          When Jerry Brown cost his friend his life I saw white reporters bashing the NFL for not educating the players on the dangers of DWI.

          The previous week another chocalate NFL thug committed a murder-suicide prompting BobCostas, Jason Whitlock etc. to blame the NRA.

          Are blacks ever held responsible for their actions anymore?

          • Ask these dumb reporters: Why is this the NFL’s responsibility? Why not the colleges or high schools these players went to? Why can’t they absorb the drunk driving is dangerous message just through the osmosis of pure common sense?

            As it is, the NFL offers relatively low cost “drive me home” services to its players. Barring that, these players are paid well enough to call themselves a cab.

            Now, the Cowboys want to require all their players, even their white punters and kickers, to do the mandatory ignition interlock thing.

            It’s becoming perfectly obvious to everyone why Jim Crow was enacted. It’s being enacted again, just in a form that’s not obvious.

            “Are blacks ever held responsible for their actions anymore?”
            I hope that is a rhetorical question.

    • have you checked out http://www.wh8te.com. you guys should. guess perfect whitey never does any crimes

      • Puggg

        And now we should look forward to black people not wanting to live anywhere near white people, and for any black people that are living around white people to flee, feet don’t fail ’em now.

      • WhitepeopledoittooWhitepeopledoittoWhitepeopledoittooWhitepeopledoittoWhitepeopledoittooWhitepeopledoitto…

      • Nobody ever said white don’t commit crime, Orc. Please explain how blacks, who are 13 percent of the population, commit an extremely disproportionate amount of the violent crimes?

        • Luis

          Because he can’t that’s why.

          • OlderWoman

            Look at Samuel Jerome’s silly desires for his future. Hahahaha! Tyler Perry is his idol. How funny this is. No wonder blacks don’t achieve much. They’re all for being entertainers. Doesn’t take brains to entertain. Just use foul language, learn to rap, dress like clowns.

            Samuel, seriously, you should go to school, make good grades and try to become successful at opening a business of some kind. Contribute to society instead of to WorldHipHop drug culture.

      Haiti will be a prosperous nation before that happens, paisan.

  • Michael_C_Scott

    Michael Moore will next pontificate about knives. while President Orangutan will say that if he had a knife-wielding 13 year-old, she would look like Tyasia.

  • Hey, they’re just like us, ask any libtard. Hell, I can’t count all the times I’ve brutally stabbed a loved one to death over a petty matter. I mean, who wouldn’t? Yep, they’re just like us I tell ya’.

    • Brian

      Know the feeling. I’m an axe-wielding homicidal manic, but not a racist, so is that ok?

      • i am

        I preferred chainsaws, but California banned 2 stroke engines so now I don’t know what to do.

        • Michael_C_Scott

          Buy one for cash in Arizona, Nevada or Oregon. No waiting period. As the left endlessly hypes, state borders are porous.

        • Brian

          Try a rotary scrub-cutter or a ride-on mower. Just make sure you wear an orange safety vest and don’t break the speed limit.

    • Guest

      no we’re not like You. but we love to kill you.

  • Damn, that’s funny.

  • OlderWoman

    “she said her head hurt’. They’ll try to say she has a mental illness so she’ll have a better defense.

    • puffdaddy

      I just love the fact that the father supports his murderous daughter and can talk about the death of his youngest daughter so dispassionately. It reminds me of those actors pretending to be Sandy Hook grieving parents, except this guy seems like he’s real. But I guess he can just have another one.

      • Ron Cheaters

        “More feed at the trough for everyone.. she was a whiney little snitch anyhow” Is what he really wanted to say.

      • OlderWoman

        Dispassionately. Yes, you are right. They’ll save their ‘grief’ for the funeral. Then they can scream, shout and faint…all for the big show in front of the attendees. One big circus.

        • And then when the unfortunately deceased is buried, they’ll ignore their final resting place and not do any maintenance on the cemetery grounds (if it’s a black cemetery in a black area), and rarely if ever visit the grave site.

    • Joseph

      She must’ve been “…turnin’ her life aroun’…” because that usually presages a homicide.

      • IstvanIN

        I am surprised she was called “a goot mutha”.

    • josh

      Does it really matter? Its no skin off our noses!

      • OlderWoman

        A black child murdered by a black teenager won’t be nationally publicized because it could ‘hurt their feelings’. Quite a bit different when it’s a White murderer.

        • Luis

          True, OW. And you know what? The Congressional Bantu Caucus must be absolutely beside itself, with anger and frustration. Here’s why:

          A white guy shoots a bunch of white schoolchildren in CT, and the Obama regime convenes a “summit” on what to do about guns. Meanwhile, Bantus are killing Bantus left and right, and Obama is seen by the Bantu caucus as doing nothing about it. To them, he doesn’t care if Bantus kill Bantus.

          Since no Bantu children were killed in CT, there is no Bantu outrage, whatsoever. The ironic thing is, there will be no Bantu outrage over this episode. You can make book on it. The most they’ll say is, is that the girl was not “right in the head”, and they’ll blame whitey for it.

          • OlderWoman

            There doesn’t seem to be Bantu outrage in Chicago over the serial killing going on there. It must be the original population control in the black community.

          • Luis

            Right, OW. In Chicago, some 78% of the murder victims this year are Bantus, with another 17% are Hispanic-surnamed. So, some 95-96% of homicide victims are Minority. Bantus foam at the mouth about the “guns”, not the killers -unless they’re white police officers, or Korean merchants.

            Bantus will even turn in their guns to the likes of Rev. Michael Pfleger, who fancies himself as a white “bwana” in the coal-black neighborhood wherein his parish resides.

    • Pelayo

      I am convinced without a doubt that these “people” are, in the majority, congenitally psychotic. They are absolutely the most abominable creatures. I don’t think that there’s any racial group who can match them.

      • OlderWoman

        I completely agree with you about their psychosis. I believe they are more different than any other race. Then there is the Curse of Ham in the Old Testament. They are destined for servitude not leadership. Obama is proving this as his leadership is a colossal failure. His white advisers are trying to use ‘black’ “logic?” and it isn’t working. Reminds me of the failure of a black corporation I worked for. Theft and misuse of funds shut it down in less than a year. Besides the President always had his mind on his zipper relating to women in the company.

  • StillModerated

    Haha! They put subtitles in for those TV viewers who don’t parlez ebonics ‘n sheeyit — gnome sane?

    One might dismiss this isolated incident as TNB, but the 13 year-old clearly has mental issues which will require expensive psychiatric treatment – at taxpayers’ expense.

  • i am

    If only she had a white person to stab none of this would have happened.

  • LHathaway

    Was she trying to protect an ‘endangered’ black male? What was her motive. . . .

    • Joseph

      Mating is a powerful inducement to homicide particularly among Africans. I wonder if she’d have killed the rest eventually to get “the boy” alone if necessary.

  • bigone4u

    The defense is black rage induced by poverty and the trauma inflicted upon her by whites and white privilege. She will be out of the hospital and on meds at 21 years of age. If Obama had a daughter this is what she would look like. Oh wait, I forgot, he does have a daughter, more than one in fact.

  • josh

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha !!!!!!!Thats why we rarely use black ghetto babysitters!

    • SintiriNikos

      A 2-year-old girl was killed and you’re laughing?

    • Only “rarely?” How about never.

  • dfg

    you go girl!

  • “Tyasia was babysitting Sasha and her four other young siblings while both parents were at work.”

    Something doesn’t sound right about this statement.

    Not a good day for the Ray family; one daughter murdered, one locked up, one less Earned Income Tax Credit, and a drop in food stamps next month.

  • PesachPatriot

    Every time i think the Florida jungle is bad the stories out of Atlanta come and take the cake. This is bad by human standards but nothing compared to the Dunbar Village horror in West Palm Beach about 7 years ago…google that one if you have a strong stomach. Samuel Jerome, there is not a single white person who says that whites don’t commit crimes…when white people commit crimes most other whites advocate throwing them in the slammer or the chair…we don’t make folk heros out of them. None of my relatives went in front of the media saying how bernie madoff beez a good boy and he was just finna turn his life around and give back all the money he stole. Even as a troll you are a complete failure….

  • Angry White Woman

    Sibling rivalry, African style.
