A Flower In The River: Phylicia Barnes Body Found One Year Ago And Shockingly No One Has Been Charged For The Pretty Book Smart Teen’s Murder

The late Phylicia Simone Barnes went missing December 28, 2010 while visiting half-siblings in Baltimore over the Christmas Holiday, and was found months later nude in a river in Northern Maryland. Her killer(s) have never been found a year later.

Danisha McIntosh a pretty, bright young woman, and seemingly headed toward success has become embroiled in a tragic murder mystery. Danisha tweeted on February 28, 2011, "It's trapped at the dam. Don't pull the lever", and months before Phylicia Barnes' body was actually discovered at the Conowingo Dam. Her relationship with young men questioned by police regarding the Barnes teen murder, leaves no doubt that she more than like can break the case wide open.

It was a sunny day with clear skies in Harford County, Maryland on April 21, 2011 when a State Environmental Worker working along the shores of Conowingo, Maryland yelled out to his crew members, “Look! A body in the water”. That day would become even more puzzling as another crew discovered another body just a few miles up-stream in the exact same body of water. When State Police responded to the scene the bodies were retrieved and determined to be a young female and,  an adult male who it later was learned had committed suicide. Both bodies were nude, badly decoposed, and appear to have emerged when spring weather began to thaw the chilly waters of the Susquehanna River. Almost immediately authorities suspected the pair’s tragic ending were directly related, but as it turned out, that wasn’t the case at all. During the investigation State Coroners revealed the female was in fact a child with a distinct tattoo of a rose on her ankle. The finding sparked the interest of Baltimore City Police who were conducting their own investigation into the unexplained disappearance of a 16-year-old honors student from Monroe, N.C. who had gone missing over the Christmas Holiday on December 28, 2010. Authorities in Monroe sent dental records of the child to the Maryland State Medical Examiners Office to determine if the Harford County case was related to the missing North Carolina teen. Within hours of receiving the records it was discovered that the female child who had been pulled from the chilly waters of the Susquehanna River in Northern Maryland was the missing honors student Phylicia Barnes. Any hopes that the public had fostered wishing the smart kid would be found alive were suddenly dashed, and left the nation wondering how such a promising child could have come to such an abrupt ending. The only minor consolation was that Janice Sallis-Mustafa, the little girls mom, didn’t have to worry about finding her precious daughter anymore, and the child’s family could hopefully began to  find some closure. However, Phylicia’s story bothered many people following the case. Many of the people who were around the child in Baltimore appear to be deceptive in information they offered to Police while being questioned regarding Phylicia having went missing. This is an account confirmed by City Police who say, “some people weren’t being truthful”. Particulars revealed in the Barnes teen case seemed fishy early own even before the child was found. Statements made public from Michael Johnson (The person reported to have last seen her alive), Deena & Kelly Barnes (The two older half-sisters), and others didn’t add up. For whatever reason, they all failed to explain how young Phylicia who didn’t know anyone in Baltimore but her siblings and their friends, ended up floating nude in a river 40 plus miles from where she was staying with her sister in West Baltimore. The main cause for suspicion is the fact that the child was left at the apartment alone with adult males the day she went missing. The Two sisters never went by the apartment to check on their baby sister. In fact it almost seems as if they knew something may have already happened to Phylicia. their behavior immediately after her disappearance is simply sickening. There was no authentic grief displayed by these women, and their account given on Blogtalk highlights that something went drastically wrong and they know more than what they have told the authorities. The fact that Phylicia was left alone with males demonstrates that there wasn’t serious concern for the child’s safety. Deena Barnes alleges that she and Michael Johnson were in the midst of a break-up, yet she felt comfortable with leaving Phylicia alone with his family and friends. Also, Deena has always offered the rationalization that she thought Phylicia was safe because MJ told her the child was asleep on the sofa. Maybe it’s just me, but the thought of my baby sister sleeping on the couch with my ex who is moving his belongings out of the house just doesn’t sit well with me. Deena knew that other males were there as well. In fact three males were actually at the apartment when Phylicia went missing. A pretty little girl who had been running around “streaking” nude with adult males (MJ’s attorney revealed that the F.B.I. had been questioning his client regarding a nude photograph of  Phylicia, MJ, and others on his cellphone streaking in and out of Deena Barnes apartment) was left alone with them (adult males), something Deena had never done the entire time Phylicia was in Baltimore (Phylicia went to work with Deena or Kelly every day except December 28, 2010), and suddenly the child goes missing. Perhaps I am the only person following this tragic story who has seen this convenient parallel. Deena Barnes may not have been the only person caught in a lie regarding the disappearance and subsequent murder of Phylicia Barnes. Michael Johnson’s story is full of holes also. MJ told Deena Barnes that he believe Phylicia went to buy food, but police investigations into that account revealed the child never went to the commercial area near the apartment. We don’t even know if MJ ever told Deena that, but that story may have stalled the cops efforts in locating the child from the very start. MJ has claimed he last saw Phylicia at 1:30 that day and I believe that was a lie also. Twitter records made public from various members of the Johnson Clan shows that MJ was probably in the Rolling Road area smoking “pot’ with his kid brother Glenton around the time Phylicia was last seen. Though the Rolling area is just a stone throw away from Deena’s apartment, Glenton’s tweets indicate that perhaps a female was in their company as well. Glenton tweeted, “Don’t tell her twice. Whoop her **s”. The tweet depicting violence toward a female on the day Phylicia went missing, around the time MJ said he last saw the child, and the location of the tweet in relationship to the apartment are yet other coincidences related to this case that can not be ignored. While all of this may have been going on, Deena relied upon MJ’s account that young Phylicia was asleep on the sofa. Did Deena Barnes purposefully throw her kid sister to the wolves? I personally don’t think such a perspective is too far-fetched considering Deena condoned her pretty little sister taking off all of her clothes and running around with adult males. Why would any woman allow such activity to transpire pertaining to their minor sibling? Many of the intelligent followers of this case who are simply utilizing common sense believe that the streaking nude occurrences is what may have led to Phylicia’s ultimate demise. The child’s mother told TPC that Phylicia was so modest about her body that the child was uncomfortable undress around her own mom. Now that it has been established as a matter of fact that Deena Barnes more than likely did introduce her baby sister to drugs and alcohol, and Janice Sallis’ statement, “If there are nude pictures of Simone she had to be complete intoxicated” fuels the notion the child was probably incoherent at the time she took off her clothes and ran around with the adult male family and friends of Michael Johnson. Why would MJ keep such a picture on his cell? This demonstrates that perhaps MJ had a sexual attraction to the studious teen. Many pedophiles and serial killers often retain trophies of many of their victims. The public has kicked around thousands of possible theories regarding what may have happened to young Phylicia Barnes and at this juncture in the case we can only pray and rely of the brave men and women who are charged to bring these animals to justice. However, as many have already stated, the cops need help from the public to close the book on this senseless murder. The help needed must start at the door steps of  “the Twitter Girl” Danisha McIntosh who tweeted on February 28, 2011, “It’s trapped at the dam. Don’t pull the lever”. The body of Phylicia Barnes was discovered in the Susquehanna River near the Conowingo Dam in Northern Maryland month after Danisha Tweeted about a dam. Her tweet is explosive simply because she is the ex-girlfriend and close friend of Dorian carpenter, and Glenton Johnson who were both questioned by police related to the Phylicia Barnes disappearance. One year later Danisha still hasn’t come forward to tell cops what she knows about the murder of Phylicia Barnes. It has always been my concern that Danisha, whose life practically mirrors Phylicia Simone Barnes’ may end up as another pretty, promising, and intelligent flower floating nude in a river somewhere. When the seasons change and natures transformation begins, whose to say Danisha won’t end up floating all alone because of what she knows, and just like Phylicia Simone Barnes whose was a pretty flower lost in a river.

    Amen Mr. Adams, it couldn’t have been said better!  Many prayers for justice for Phylica!

  2. Fancykatt1 says:

    It seems as though they have gotten away with murder, but thank God for you because you are keeping her story in the spotlight..

  3. Stephanie says:

    An arrest has been made. Michael Johnson was arrested last evening!!!!!

  4. JFPB says:

    I remember some of Mrs Sallis-Mustafa’s posts and I have a feeling this arrest doesn’t make her welcome Deena with open arms!! People on other boards can come up with all the excuses for Deena they want but her behavior in that flop house (as police described it) lead to her sister ending up nude in a river dead. Funny I walked in to a B more City jury summons today. Is God trying to tell me something? hahaha Maybe B more can get this right for the Mustafa family!!! JFPB 

    Why would an innocent man run from police when he has  a lawyer talking tough? Now just tell the rest of the story so others can be arrested as well. I’m still not buying he acted alone!

    • Jemmy says:

      deena had better be glad that she ain’t from Chi Town bcuz the citizens from the streets would have whipped and spanked that AZZ just for GP with fthe foul odor seeping out of her pores is a threat to the community, too much damn TOXINS being exposed to the public which is a health hazard, there, she needs all the stank along with taking the beating from her extra foul smelling PAPPY rulless barnes and take it like the HIGH QUALITY SLUT  MUT that you are.

    • found journey says:

      JFPB how r u but I’m not buying deena’s so called innocent, she’s the actual blame no Man is not going to do anything other than what a woman allows him to do.  And deena was so over head with the way that NUGGA! looked and she actually think that she had a prize to be had. she had a dangerous and beasty monster living amongst ur present oh I’m starting to get it. Is it that u r a beasty monsterette deena that’s why y’all hung together for over ten years and if I’m not mistaking and definitely don’t want to get any rumors started but did I hear that u were a wanna-be-thug all along.  But u see deena Janice SallisMustafa is wayyyyyyyyyyyyy…………more GANGSTER than u could wish for all of ur circle partners balls, scrotums, nut whatever word one prefers but Ms. Janice got y’all by the nuts and oh from the feistisness that I’ve seen come out of that mother oh I suggest each one of you hard leg wanna-b-thugs just go set an appointment to get castrated and send the contaminated pieces of meat to the wash house for a scrubbing before preserving it in vinegar to see how pickled balls taste; however the balls owner will be the taste testers hmmm delicious…..y’all would ve had the best delicacy on the market world wide.
