Teen ‘Who Shot Baby Dead In Stroller” Now Blames Baby’s Parents For The Murder

It was a shocking story from March of this year: De’Marquis Elkins, 17 at the time, deliberately murdered 13-month-old Antonio Santiago in his stroller, because Antonio’s mother carried no money when Elkins and an accomplice tried to rob her. Now, that tragic story has taken a turn for the bizarre. Elkins, who is being tried with his accomplice, Dominque Lang, 15, claims that Santiago’s mother and father put out a contract on their son in order to get insurance money.

On March 21st, his last day alive, little Antonio could toddle but not yet talk. His mother, Sherry West, strapped him in a stroller and took him for a walk near their apartment in Brunswick, Georgia. According to the story she told police at the time, 17-year-old Elkins and a 14-year-old companion suddenly confronted her, waving a gun, and demanding money. West cried as she told the Associated Press how Elkins deliberately slaughtered her child because he viewed it as the reason she had no money to give to him:

He asked me for money and I said I didn’t have it,” she said. “When you have a baby, you spend all your money on babies. They’re expensive. And he kept asking and I just said ‘I don’t have it.’ And he said, ‘Do you want me to kill your baby?’ And I said, ‘No, don’t kill my baby!’

And people wonder why it is you might get a little nervous seeing a character like this walking ‘round your neighborhood at night in the rain.

So, we’re supposed to believe that after putting out a contract on her son, the mother identified the killer which would mean she didn’t expect him to reveal the contract.

Precisely. People who haven't been fingered, don't pick their accomplices out of a lineup. Not even a stupid perp would do that.

If there was a serious amount of insurance put on the baby, the police would have raised some eyebrows. If there were any at all, I'm guessing it was a small whole-life policy that some people get to ensure coverage later in life. As a baby, my grandparents put on on me. I cashed it out in my mid-20s, when I purchased a much ore substantial policy.

Either way he killed the baby so he should get the max. Why would being a hitman instead of a garden-variety punk make any difference?

I do remember the daughter mentioning that the mother talked about some insurance policy and wondered how much she could get.

Isn’t it Gerber that sends out those insurance pamphlets? So what if the mother took out a policy. I bet a lot of people do or Gerber wouldn’t keep soliciting. That hardly makes the parents complicit in their baby’s murder.

I think it's very possible that someone took the daughter's comment out of context. Don't think a reporter would do that? Or a lawyer?

In his mind, since the mother and child did not give him what he wanted, they were stealing from him.

Most unfortunately, UnwashedPeasant, that's the crux of the matter. That attitude predominates all the way from the street corner narcotics gangs to the office of the attorney general of the United States.

Welcome to post-constitutional America.

It doesn't need to be a "substantial" insurance policy.

Christopher Milke was murdered for a $5000 insurance policy. Roger Scott, one of three convicted in his murder, participated for a promise of $250.

Planned Parenthood could spin this as an “post-partem abortion”.

There must be a word already out there to describe people in such a state of mind.
