Phylicia Barnes Murder Case Coming Full Circle: State May Prove Drugs, Alcohol, And Group Sex Played Major Role In Teens Killing

This morning WBAL Radio in Baltimore reported that a Circuit Court judge has denied the state’s motion to exclude the public from the court room during Michael Johnson’s murder trial when a video recording is played that depicts honors teen Phylicia Barnes, her half-sibling Deena Barnes, Michael Johnson, and Michael’s younger brother engaged in sexual relations. The ruling as of now will allow the tape to be aired in open court. The recording is alleged to show the defendant Michael Johnson having sex with the Barnes teen while being captured on her older half-sibling’s cell phone. Prosecutors also allege that the Barnes teen appears intoxicated along with others during the 16 minute and 31 second recording. The public airing of the recording will bring the case to a full circle as everyone in attendance during the trial when the tape is played will obtain a first hand account of the kind of atmosphere that Deena Barnes and her friends exposed a naive, book smart, and teenage Phylicia Barnes to while she visited her half-siblings in Baltimore. Now, for the first time details are possibly emerging of the state’s strategy to prove that Michael Johnson killed the pretty teen out of lust and sexual desire for the child. The tape supports other evidence that Johnson “had a thing for her”, as prosecutors have alleged. The investigation also uncovered text messages between Johnson and Barnes in excess of over 500 during the months prior to Phylicia’s last trip to Baltimore back in December of 2010. The day the child went missing Johnson was reportedly the last person to have seen Barnes alive. He showed up at Deena Barnes’ apartment to do laundry according to Deena Barnes, but took a younger relative home who didn’t have permission to be at the apartment, and subsequently returned and was alone with Barnes when she disappeared. These details are in fact a very plausible scenario considering Johnson had already engaged in sex with the teen while her older sister was present. During the sex tape Barnes is reportedly intoxicated without her full bearing. Many following the case believe the child may have been drugged possibly with some form of date rape substances. This is a factor her mother has firmly stated is the only way her daughter would take off her clothes for a man. It’s also unclear who the younger brother was that also had sex with Barnes on tape. Prosecutors wanted the tape’s audience minimized because Barnes and another juvenile were depicted in the recording. Johnson has two other younger brothers Glenton “Bootz” Johnson, and Delanie who could possibly be seen in the tape. However, tweets from Glenton literally minutes before Michael Johnson say he last saw the teen reveal Glenton  stating “don’t tell her twice, whoop her ass”. That tweet coupled with the knowledge of the sex tape may clearly show that Glenton may be the other male engaging in sex with the teen, and on the day Phylicia disappeared he and Michael may have been attempting to engage the child further sexually while her sister wasn’t present. Phylicia was now  probably more conscious, with her full bearing, and became uncooperative or non-consenting which may have cause the males to become violent with her, and resulting in her killing. It will be very interesting to see exactly how the state utilizes this evidence when it’s presented in court, but it’s obvious that charges against others viewed on the tape or present during it’s recording will more than likely be facing pending criminal charges upon the conclusion of the murder trial phase of this case. At the very least, the state could charge Deena Barnes with child endangerment and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Also, if Deena Barnes is depicted as having sex with her younger half-sister or the other minor present during the tape as well, she could also be charged with statutory rape. The state has already revealed that they plan to call Deena Barnes as a witness while the tape is aired in open court establishing her as a witness against Johnson. There has been no information made public determining whether her testimony will be made under duress, meaning that the state mandates her presence, and also resulting in what amounts to some form of a plea deal for pending criminal charges against her. Barnes testimony for the state may also answer lingering questions about five defense attorneys having filed their appearances in the case. TPC has long suspected that the volume of legal counsels involved, and court motions requesting a joint trial of defendants indicated others were possibly being charged along side Michael Johnson. Now that many of these newly developing and shocking details of the Barnes murder are being made public, it only widens a concerned public’ outrage that ponders how such a promising, and beautiful teenage girl could come to such a tragic ending.Social Media forums are buzzing with most followers of the case holding Deena Barnes completely responsible for what happened to young Phylicia Barnes. The constant question being asked from the public is why? Why would any sister allow their younger and impressionable sibling to be engaged in such filth with older men, while also introducing her to drugs and alcohol. Some suggest that it was out of jealousy by Deena Barnes for Phylicia’s perceived privileged life with her scheduled to attend college early as a scholastic standout, and others believe Deena Barnes may have retaliated against Phylicia for discovering a volume of text messages shared between Phylicia and Michael Johnson who was Deena’s boyfriend. Either perspective is simply disturbing as it depicts   pure viciousness on the part of the child’s older sibling. It’s difficult for most people to even imagine having any kind of sexual relations with their younger sister present and participating, and just outright disgusting to know that it was also recorded as well. In fact during a conversation I had with Janice Mustafa we discussed the video which was only reported as a nude streaking at the time. As we tried to make since of why Phylicia was allowed to participate in such behavior, I told Janice maybe Deena wanted or had desires to have sex with Phylicia also. We just couldn’t understand why a child would be involved in such behavior. Apparently, this is what Deena Barnes and the entire Johnson clan was all about from the very start. The reports of a gang of young men coming and going all the time, the images of a drug & alcohol fueled party atmosphere, and pictures of intoxicated young females makes a case for Deena’s place being a freaky orgy hangout. Sadly though, Janice Mustafa’s little girl became the lamb that walked into a lions den and never emerged again. This is an extremely hurtful story that impacts us all, but we must never forget this precious child who died senselessly at the hands of monsters who manipulated, extorted, and abuse her in the worst way. We send prayers up for Phylicia, the brave men and women working to find justice, and to Phylicia’s parents while we walk with them in search for closure in one of the most horrific crimes of our time. God be with us all!

 

We Pray Janice & Raheem Mustafa, and their surviving children can go on!

    I always knew Deena was behind this, and I don’t understand why she was arrested long ago!
