Channon Christian and Chris Newsom
WATE Knoxville ^ | 8/22/09 | Cobbins

Posted on 08/22/2009 9:55:02 PM PDT by eyedigress

This bastard murdered this young woman, and is accompliced to the murder of her boyfriend. It is now in the hands of the jury. 3 more are involved. It is a sad place to acknowledge. I stayed quiet until this trial was over. The anger is real.


TOPICS: Crime/Corruption; US: Tennessee
KEYWORDS: channonchristian; christiannewsom; christophernewsom; knoxville; letalviscobbins; satansown
He portends his existence had nothing to do with her murder yet he was alone with her for two hours while they killed her boyfriend and he raped her while they were alone together. She asked to be freed during this time. He refused.

The defense did what they could but this bastard is guilty as hell. The crimes against these two are beyond belief. His DNA is in her mouth and throat. He claims that’s all he knows.

Reverse the races in this crime and you know what would happen...

The cost of our society’s “compassion” is far, far too high IMO. This pig and those like him should be removed from our world before they can torture and kill. I’m sure there were plenty of opportunities.

I understand the PC behind all this, but the state wants Capitol One against all of the gang. The defense is trying to pin it on one only. So far the defense is losing. We shall see.

Read where both the prosecution and defense said “this has nothing to do with race”....when it had everything to do with race.

I'm a local myself. There is no way one person could have done what was done. No way possible at all. Even the Job Corp murder took two persons. These persons are ratting all over themselves and each other. Hang E'm.

The Father of Channon is in the the courtroom and he just rocks back and forth. The M.E. is describing a very sad state his daughter is in. She died in a trash can, tied fetal, and wrapped in 5 trash bags. Her head was also tied with a bag.

I know you are. The M.E. was very powerful on the stand. When asked whether she could prove Cobbins had anything to do with putting Channon in the trash can.....She replied, “I can’t tell you if he he put the first or third bag on...”

Oh yes. Cobbins took the stand today. He explained the plan to carjack for money. It elevated quite a bit. They took the couple back to mechanicsburg and now had a problem.

The feral dogs that murdered these two need a bullet in the brain. One for each of them. Then burn the bodies.

Much easier to get and more sure money around town than that. I know one place it likely wasn't though. In Halls. Where the murder happened put them within 5 minutes even to the mall either via the interstate or the back way across Cherry St and up Washington Pike.

That whole area is rough now even Whittles. I worked at the old 7-11 look alike at night on Whittle Springs in the late 80's. It was getting pretty rough even around there back then. Everything that happened on Magnolia in the bars seemed to end up there at the store for some reason. I can also remember when Whittles was a very safe middle class neighborhood. Cherry st area was rough in the 70's though especially around Levi's.

I'm thinking back on all the murders and I mean the bad ones. This one is the worse. I remember the one in Fountain City where two persons butchered a man {literally} and placed him in Knox and Anderson Counties. Part of him was found a few miles from me. There was Tatto Eddie, Zooman, Lilylyd family murders {a bunch of evil kids}, the girl in the ceiling in Christenberry Heights, The Big Ridge murders, and a few more. This one though sounds more cult ritualistic IMO.

OK I think I know about where. Less than 5 minutes light traffic from where they were killed. Alice Belle area sounds like or close to North Hills.

It was nothing more than a carjacking. When discovered it would be a pretty white girl it elevated. The dad is actually the one that got cops roaming the area. She called him during the time with Cobbins but he (cobbins) didn’t now it. That’s when Dad demanded the phone company hone in on the signal. The police will never admit to that.

God bless and be with their families. I don’t know how else they could sit in that courtroom. I guess they think if those kids could go through it, then they can go through hearing about it throughout the trials. Prayers for them.

way to darn fast Domandred. these animals need to be burned alive S.L.O.W.L.Y, just like the way roosevelt townes was roasted alive, tied to a tree in the old days, 1937 miss. the torture-killers of these two kids deserve nothing but the most intense prolonged pain imaginable and since it might be asked, yes, I could/would perform it by my hand to avenge these kids and their grieving families if asked. this story enrages me beyond belief. I do not have very many years at all, very few, left in my own life so any incarceration or punishment fears for such an act upon myself being possibly convicted of it is completely irrelevant....including any afterlife concerns. I can’t imagine what these two kid’s folks must be feeling now and since they learned what happened to their children....’flame’ away, (I think that is the correct saying these days) if you want.

According to testimony, they went there to commit robbery.
Davidson is directing the shots and the people under his control are robots. That doesen’t fly on Capital Murder.

Good reason to keep the share function on. Also calling 911 for help in Knoxville can sometimes be lengthy if not impossible.

no offense to you but anger is a younger persons feelings or thoughts, they are not this old timer’s. mine now here are much more. rage and an old school retribution thought towards these savages that were responsible for these 2 poor kid’s slow death is more appropriate of how I feel. I do not think I have ever heard/read of a story as evil as this and I have seen a few...

I know where your coming from. I had a situation where I was letting a closely related juvie living with me use a cell phone on dates etc. I made sure it was in my name and I also had back door entrance into the account with a computer. I could tell what calls were being made within a few minutes ago and to whom. It came in real handy one time. The dad was real lucky the cell company cooperated at all.

They will go through every aspect of that “day” and it will be accurate. Cowards become exposed especially when their life is on the line. It is unfortunate, yet necessary when they torture and murder innocent people.

I watched Cobbins testimony, yet another version of the many he has told. I really think he was taunting Mr Christian, telling him that Channon offered him oral sex
if he would help her get away.
Mr Christian almost came over the railing, and his wife pulled him back.I’m afraid the poor man is going to have a stroke, and there are three more of these trials.

There were many,many people who helped these demons after the fact. I hope they’re all charged.

The ME said this was much,much more than a rape. He battered her with an object or kicked her.

The house this happened in was like 750 square feet with no doors,just curtains hanging between rooms. Everyone in that house knew exactly what was going on.Just pure sadism, and evil.

The prosecutor asked Cobbins what
the girls name was. It took him a while to remember it. He got Chris Newsoms name wrong.

I watched this trial for the most part,(I just left it on at work) and this guy is in it up to his head. Murder One is the only justice. The judge told them not to worry about sentencing.

Verdict is in: Guilty of murder 1 on both counts, guilty of every type of rape against Christian, not guilty of any type of rape against Newsom.
