We’re sure they would look like Obama’s son, if only police would release their photos.
Three suspects have been detained in connection with the sexual assault and murder of Amanda Blackburn, a pastor’s pregnant wife who was shot during a home invasion robbery on Nov. 10.
Sources tell FOX59 the three men will also be charged in three additional burglaries, including a rape at the Westlake Apartments.
Police say the men in custody are Larry Taylor, Jalen Watson and Diano Gordan. Watson and Gordon are in custody being held on parole violations. Taylor, who was previously taken into custody and released, was arrested again Sunday night at a relative’s home, according to police.
Police confirm members of the Violent Crimes Unit and Gang Units, along with U.S. Marshals, arrested 18-year-old Taylor on a preliminary charge of murder in connection with the Blackburn case.
Authorities said the men referred to themselves as “The Kill Gang.”
Detectives have collected evidence linking the trio to a previous rape and robbery at the Westlake Apartments, where the suspects were living until early November, sources say. The men then moved to an address on San Clemente Drive, where detectives believe two of the suspects were captured on a surveillance video burglarizing a neighbor’s apartment. A silver Chrysler Sebring was stolen from that location. Investigators later found DNA linking the suspects to that case.
The trio will also be charged with a burglary that occurred earlier that day near the Blackburn’s home. Surveillance video shows at least one of the suspects in that community around the time of the burglary.
Detectives believe the men entered the Blackburn home, which was unlocked, and confronted Amanda Blackburn, who was at home with her 1-year-old son. Sources say two of the suspects left with Blackburn’s ATM card to retrieve money, while Taylor allegedly raped and killed Amanda.
