NEW ORLEANS A man who initially told police gunmen kidnapped his 2 1/2-year-old son was arrested Saturday, accused of committing an "extremely hideous" murder because he was ordered to pay child support, Police Superintendent Warren Riley said.
Danny Platt confessed, told police where to find the child's body and will be booked on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of Ja' Shawn Powell, Riley said at a news conference.
"He had said he would kill either his wife or his child before he paid child support," which he recently had been ordered to do, Riley said.

That poor little kid was destined to pay a penalty from the day he was brought into this world.
Born into a dysfunctional family, given an odd name like Ja’Shawn, deadbeat father who he never sees until the day he gets kidnapped and murdered because the deadbeat dad doesn’t want to pay to support him.
Poor kid had no chance.
Just when you thought that the world couldn’t freak you out anymore.
The young boy is in the arms of Our Lord. Hopefully, his “father” will get the death penalty.
If this idiot was so dead set against paying child support, he should have just killed himself instead.
It is absurd for government bureaucrats to insert themselves into the deeply personal, and no doubt difficult, decision that this father made. I’m sure the decision to kill his son was not made lightly. This is the kind of decision that belongs between a man, his clergyman, and his God. Government has no business trying to force citizens to conform to religious tenets.
Are you saying that it was just late, late, LATE term abortion?
Your point is well made, and sadly, true. If a woman can decide whether a child is aborted or not, whether or not she'll extort from the bio dad, etc., things like this are going to happen. I'm horrified by this.
"Women have rights; men have responsibilities". Part II of this ideology in playout over time.
Bill Cosby’s statement “I brought you into this world and I can take you out” isn’t nearly as funny as it once was.
His defense could be “practicing medicine (after-birth abortion? euthanasia?) without a license.”
Yup. What you said.
My comments on this POS are not printable!
A few days back our little town had a guy bust into his ex wife’s house and shoot her boyfriend 8 times. The shooter’s family is defending his actions because the ex wouldn’t let him see the kids. However trying to murder a man in front of his kids isn’t going to help his visitation much.
One more reason we don’t like people from Ann Arbor and Yipsilanti moving to our town.
Either hang around & try to learn something, or maybe you happened on the wrong forum.
If I may expand on Arthur's point.
...the babies in the womb who are being murdered by the millions in our country have the same sweet cute faces as those who are mourned over on MSM & your newspapers....
..the womb babies are ignored & forgotten.... marginalized...
...because you never saw them & formed an attachment like we have for Calie Anthony (rest her soul)
Life has become cheap....
..When a nation surrenders its soul to killing unborn babies...
..the nation should not be surprised when sick murders like this poor little 2-1/2 yr old happen.
Are you like a demonic energy drink or something?
Agreed! Events like this should be legal, safe and rare.
The problem here is do-gooders imposing child support. The mother has the final choice if the kid is born. With choice goes responsibility. Her getting impregnated is a separate issue. If she was impregnated against her will, she should have filed rape charges.
What did those others post? Was it removed already?
Ooops! I must have skipped over the comment the first time... What stupid, stupid comments they made.
He had the choice whether to have sex with her and take the risk that she might get pregnant. If he didn’t want to take that risk, he could have kept it in his pants. The child didn’t have a choice.
