Tearful Courage, Enduring Strength, And Coping With Tragedy: The Mother Of The Late Phylicia Barnes Puts Her Daughter’s Murder Into Perspective

I was sitting in the den at home working on a Blog Post about the Phylicia Barnes Murder case when my cell phone rang. When I saw the number, from the State of Georgia, I knew instantly that the caller was Janice Sallis, the little girl’s mom. I had put a call out to her earlier on in the day and I was very anxious to have a long awaited chat with her about her daughter’s story. I was Unsure what to expect from a grieving mother nearly a year removed from the killing of her child, but upon speaking with Janice I was instantly placed at ease, as I was met with a warm, charming personality, and she displayed the typical spirit of southern decorum. As she spoke it was apparent that she also possessed depth, inner strength, with intelligence, dignity, and that she held  a God Fearing personification. I was in complete amazement of her ability to feverishly articulate the particulars surrounding the killing of Phylicia. She withered not, poignantly exclaiming her thoughts regarding the case, and I admittedly  wasn’t prepared for some of the gut wrenching details Janice shared with me regarding the life she experienced while raising Phylicia, only to loose her at the hands of heartless killer(s) that has changed the lives of her, and her family forever. Janice made it abundantly clear that she wanted to dispel rumors that have surfaced about the case and that much of it was spearheaded by the Barnes clan in Baltimore, chiefly Russell Barnes who is Phylicia’s biological father. She was extremely upset by articles and Blog post from individuals calling her immature, saying that she needed to grow up, and come together with Russell Barnes to find Phylicia’s killer(s). I learned that such a effort would never occur and rightfully so, based on what she shared with me. Janice has consistently expressed outright disdain for her daughter’s father or sperm donor as she calls him. He has been absent from Phylicia’s life for at least 8 years prior to her death and his obvious lack of grief regarding Phylicia’s passing has been confirmed to have derived from his rejection of the child, beginning as far back when he first learned Janice was pregnant with Phylicia. Janice described Russell Barnes as violent, uncaring, self absorbed, and quite capable of aiding the killers in murdering Phylicia as well as conspiring to dispose of his own daughter’s body. This is something that I eluded to unknowingly in a previous blog post. Janice talked about the domestic violence that she endured at the hands of Russell during and after her pregnancy of Phylicia. She conveyed his complete displeasure of her pregnancy and believes that he was so desperate to terminate her pregnancy, that he beat her in an attempt to cause her to have a miscarriage. In fact Janice revealed that Russell Barnes divorced her because she refused to “get rid” of her baby. Janice explicitly recalled one episode of abuse when Russell woke her during the early morning hours and began to drag her throughout the house,only because she wasn’t speaking coherently after being abruptly awaken. She said that he only stopped the abuse upon her mother awakening and rebuffing Russell, and reminding him that she had just recently given birth to their daughter Phylicia. Not just that though, on the day that Janice actually delivered her pretty little baby, Russell Barnes didn’t find it necessary for him to be at the hospital during the birth of his child. He did arrive hours later, stayed a few minutes, and left. To make it plain and simple, according to Janice Sallis, Russell Barnes made her life a living hell solely because he didn’t want Phylicia. As the years went by Janice would meet a man I will refer to here as brother Mustafa, who would eventually wed her, and began to make a dynamic impact on her family as well as her kids from a previous marriage. Even during this time frame Russell Barnes was absent from Phylicia’s life, appearing sparingly to bitch about child support. When a young tot Phylicia asked for her father, brother Mustafa called Russell and informed him that his daughter had been asking for him. Russell offered the excuse that he did not have transportation, but Mustafa advise him that if he simply gave his address that he would bring his pretty little daughter to see him. Janice said Russell Barnes never returned their call to make arrangements to have his child brought to visit him.  Janice says that when it was time for her to go back to school and finish her nursing education Mustafa was her rock looking after the kids. This allowed Phylicia and Janice’s older daughter Shauntel Sallis the opportunity to bond with their step dad, who cared for and provided for them. He taught Phylica everything. Janice chuckled as she bragged about the fact that Phylicia could put bait on a fishing rod and other activities that Mustafa engaged the children in. To say the least, brother Mustafa was very much Dad at their home. During Phylicia’s Teen years she obtained a job as a counselor, mentoring to her peers and younger students at her school, Union Academy. It was because of her ambitions and having the astuteness to be employed even at her young age, that allowed her to help her parents purchase  her first car (Mercury Mountaineer). Janice put out a call to Russell Barnes and asked that he simply purchase 1 tire for Phylicia’s truck, and he just simply displayed the usual demeanor bitching about child support. Janice said that he told her that he would go through child support to help pay for the tire. Needless to say he did nothing. Janice also explained that her anger directed towards Russell isn’t from what he did to her, his character, or his dead beat dad history, but because when the story first broke about Phylicia’s disappearance, Russell tried to grab the reigns and past himself off as the loving caring dad, when in fact it should have been Mustafa on Nancy Grace, taking and fielding questions from the Police and the media, not Russell Barnes. Janice also points out that Russell Barnes has been a complete distraction, if not a hindrance in the investigation into the murder of Phylicia Barnes. Some of the key points or rumors I should say, that have become widely known as facts related to the case, were in fact fabricated lies manufactured, not by Deena, Micheal Johnson, or Kelly, but by Russell Barnes himself. I will exploit those details later in this post. In the wake of Phylicia’s death it became abundantly clear immediately that Phylicia Barnes was no ordinary 16 year old. Her school classmates loved her dearly, and Janice explains that it was the child’s loving, compassionate, and caring personality that drew most people to Phylicia. Janice prided herself on the fact that her daughter wasn’t confrontational and she never witnessed the child engaged in any kind of argument what so ever. She says Phylicia would defuse tense situations, by jokingly saying you go sit down. Phylicia was also extremely talented in many facets of the arts as well as academics. Janice describes her late daughter as near genius. Many might venture to say that all mothers say and believe this about their kids, but Phylicia had the grades to prove it, and was scheduled to leave high school a year early to pursue a degree in Child Pyschology. Also, Phylicia had tremendous social interaction skills. Janice said her daughter was able to blend in with the diverse ethnic student body at Union Academy. Phylicia hung out with white, black, and kids from various ethnic backgrounds, a personal trait that allowed the studious child to excel at school. Much of what Janice told me about her daughter, I already knew from my investigation of her case and news articles I read about Phylicia. I didn’t take rocket science to see that she was a standout amongst her peers. But why so much focus on Russell Barnes, some may ask? It is extremely important for Janice Sallis that the public get a complete picture of the true character of Phylicia’s Biological Father who has been making some false comments in the media, and conducting himself in an outright idiotic fashion. Let’s revisit some of the fabricated lies that Janice says Russell Barnes Manufactured:

1. When media reports broke that a young Phylicia Barnes was last seen walking to get some food, that account didn’t come from Micheal Johnson as the public has been led to believe. That account was created by Russell Barnes, a fact that Janice Sallis believes was created to shield Deena Barnes from potential suspicion in the disappearance of her little sister. Janice points out that Russell stated to a news agency that, “Phylicia came to live at my house and left my home to go get something to eat”. That sounds plausible if Phylicia and Russell both were actually staying at Deena’s place, or somewhere else in Baltimore, but there is one problem, Russell Barnes lived in Atlanta, Georgia when Phylicia went missing. So why did Russell create such a diversion that was crucial during the initial hours of Phylicia’s disappearance? This lie led the police to believe she would be coming back relatively soon and lessoned the sense of urgency to search for the child.

2. In Mimi’s blog post over at Opal Fusion Mag, she posed the rhetorical question, “Who told Mcheal Johnson to stay away”. Janice Sallis reveals that Russell Barnes actually told MJ to stay away, and offered the rationalization that he was afraid that he might kill him. However, during the Blog Talk Interview, Deena and Kelly Barnes painted the picture as if MJ just mysteriously disappeared while they made repeated attempts to contact him, only for him to suddenly reappear during the early morning hours. It seems as if they were creating an argument that his unexplained unavailability was  ample time for him to have the opportunity to dispose of Phylicia’s body. Janice was confused as to why Russell would do that. You would think since Micheal was the last person to see Phylicia, common sense should have kicked in that he needed to  be available if for no other purpose but to talk to the cops. Besides Janice said she wanted to speak with him and look him in his eyes when she spoke to him about her daughter. Russell’s request for MJ to disappear is very suspicious to say the least.

3. Russell Barnes has been saying that he was in the streets looking for his daughter, and even that was a lie. When Janice and Mustafa arrived in Baltimore December 30, 2010. They were combing the streets of Baltimore in some of the roughest parts of town looking for Phylicia. Janice says they encountered two small kids who say they saw a girl that fit Phylicia’s description accompanied by an older guy. The kids say she appeared to be “drugged up” and scared. Janice and Mustafa calls Russell and tried to convince him to meet them on Belvedere Avenue where they were with those kids, and Russell made the excuse that the neighborhood they were in was Bloods Gang turf, and he needed to contact a Bloods Leader to escort him there. I was completely floored when she told me this. In fact I think I fell just short of calling Russell Barnes a fucking coward. Janice said later she learned that they were having a re-pass like affair at Deena’s place with family, friends, and food as if they already knew that Phylicia was dead. They all sat around laughing, kidding, and joking as if there wasn’t a care in the world. The cops dismissed the allege sighting of Phylicia  by the youth, because one of them stated she was wearing shorts and it was winter with snow on the ground. Well in my mind, if Phylicia was hustled out of Deena’s apartment by someone, that account by the kids wasn’t too far fetched. The child could have actually just simply been wearing shorts at the time. Janice’s account of this incident is upsetting, and could have been a potentially missed opportunity to find the child, and was completely botched by the cop they reported it too. The Officer never even filed a Police Report about this incident.

4. Janice said that Russell Barnes also made false statements to the police also about Phylicia’s disappearance, but I will not elaborate on that in fear of potentially jeopardizing the investigation into the child’s murder. Janice Sallis also cleared up some confusion surrounding the so called Barnes Family members that were supposedly so concerned about young Phylicia during the time that searches were being conducted to locate her. Phylicia is only related to Russell Barnes, Russell’s  half brother (Sgt. Jackson), Deena, Kelly, and Bryan Barnes. The others, including so called uncle Harry Watson and his daughter are not blood related to Phylicia or even Russell Barnes for that matter. Janice says that Russell was adopted at age 2. Hell he isn’t even a Barnes himself. This might explain the complete lack of grief. It does seem to justify the hollow public posture that Russell Barnes  has maintained which troubles many who have followed this case. Janice indicated that Russell’s abandonment as a child enables him to hold an emotional detachment from his biological family. I am glad Janice had the courage to share her heartfelt story with the public and exposing Russell Barnes for the fraud that he is. Janice admits she became extremely angry after she learned a little over a month ago that Russell marched onto Union Academy’s school grounds unannounced with news media in an attempt to continue his fake display of concern about what happen to Phylicia. Janice says he was supposedly trying to see what the school was like where his daughter attended and meet her friends. Well news flash Russell, Phylicia has been deceased nearly a year now, and her friends have since graduated and no longer attend Union. Russell Barnes had never visited Union Academy the entire time that Phylicia was enrolled there. So why go to the school after all this time? Janice stated that it’s this deranged and idiotic behavior by Russell Barnes that sends a negative and false perception to the media and the public. It’s sickening now, after we’ve learned that he never wanted pretty Phylicia Simone Barnes and clearly demonstrates his possible culpability in the conspiracy to cover up the murder of his own child. Russell if you are reading this I have some advice for you, stay out of the media because you have been exposed. If you truly want to aid in solving Phylicia’s murder, then you should demand your other kids and members of your adoptive family come clean and fest up about what actually went down regarding Phylicia’s killing. I think that it’s safe to say that you all are implicated now.

The late Phylicia Simone Barnes

Deena’s Place

Most readers probably have already listened to the Blog Talk Interview on “Peas In Their Pods” radio, and recall the confusion surrounding who was actually there the day young Phylicia went missing. Deena literally stumbled over her tongue and paused very awkwardly multiple times when questioned about some of these details. She reluctantly admitted that a younger cousin/brother also stayed at the apartment with her. Janice revealed that 3 males in fact stayed at her apartment. They were Micheal Johnson, his younger brothers 19 year old “Bootz”, and 16 year old Dulaney. Also, the day before Phylicia disappeared they had another party and another adult male cousin of Micheal Johnson had stayed the night, and probably because he was too high to go home. So the picture is much clearer now that we realize in fact 4 males may have been at Deena’s apartment on this fateful day. Janice was devastated to learn that three males were staying at the apartment after she had been assured by Deena Barnes that only she and Phylicia would be there prior to the child’s December 17, 2010 arrival in Baltimore. This revelation also clears up the mystery as to who the 4 males were that Federal Investigators had obtained Search Warrants of Social Media, and Email Accounts for. When Janice and her husband Mustafa arrived in Baltimore following her having been notified that Phylicia was missing, she cornered Deena Barnes and challenged her about some of the activities she had learned Deena allowed Phylicia to engage in while staying with her. What Deena Barnes didn’t know was that, one of Phylicia’s friends, another minor (13-14 years old) had poured her heart out, crying, telling Janice, and Mustafa that Phylicia’s older Sister had allowed her to drink vodka and smoke pot while she was staying in Baltimore on previous trips to visit her family there. Janice described the child as distraught fearing that something may have happened to Phylicia, and felt guilty that she didn’t tell her what Phylicia shared with her. Janice armed with this information, apparently caught Deena off guard as she replied to Janice, “she only took a few puffs”, referring to Phylicia being introduced to smoking marijuana. Russell Barnes who was also present during this exchange between the two women replied, “Well when I was 15 my uncle gave me pot”. Janice states that she rebuffed Russell and said, “I don’t give a damn what your uncle gave you. This is my daughter”. Deena has since denied exposing Phylicia to alcohol and marijuana to the police , and the media. Deena also denied this during the BTI. Perhaps the most unsettling aspect of Phylicia’s disappearance is that the Baltimore City Police took 5 days before they treated Phylicia’s case seriously. This can only be attributed to the lie Russell Barnes started about Phylicia having been seen walking to get food. This was also ample enough time for Micheal Johnson, Deena, and the other males living at that apartment to clean up the place and possibly destroy crucial forensic evidence. This was a tearful and saddening element of the case which created another missed opportunity by police to obtain crucial information surrounding the disappearance of Phylicia Barnes.

The Investigation

Now that we know who some of  the key people are that were either visiting or staying at Deena Barnes’ apartment, it must be made clear to everyone concerned about what happened to Phylica Barnes, that there are some troubling factors in the case that may have aided in hindering the investigation of the child’s murder. Janice Sallis points out  that the slow movement by police in the initial phase of this investigation was paramount, primarily because there were lies told to cops by those closest to Phylicia in Baltimore. What many maybe unaware of is that Russell Barnes has a brother who is a ranking Police Officer, and that the younger cousin of Micheal Johnson who stayed overnight after the party the day prior to Phylicia’s disappearance, mother is in fact a Baltimore City Police Detective. This could simply be a mere coincidence, but Janice and I discussed the culture of law enforcement and their silent code to protect their own. I have been bloging for some time now that the individuals under suspicion in this case, more than likely obtained help from expert sources considering the life style that many of them engage in, and after viewing their Social Media pages on Facebook and Myspace (into rap music and posing in pictures with guns), and the drug usage that has been alleged to have occurred at Deena’s place. I am confident that the males related to this case lack the aptitude to cover their tracks so thoroughly in such a complexing murder case without the assistance of parties with knowledge regarding what exactly cops  would look for in a criminal case of this nature. It could very well be that police were procrastinating during the initial phase of this investigation because fellow law enforcement personnel are related to potential suspects in this case, but either way, the fact that there are cops whom hold such close ties to the very people who were physically at the apartment the day Phylicia went missing is an alarming and disturbing element of this entire ordeal that can not be ignored. Janice and I both agree that fortunately this case is now in the hands of the Maryland State Police, an agency with an impeccable reputation of professionalism in criminal investigations of this magnitude. Janice has continuously displayed her gratitude to investigators currently working Phylicia’s murder case, sighting that they are in contact with her on a regular basis with details of the case’ progress. Janice did point out that she believes that the Police affiliation of Russell Barnes and the Johnson families does pose a degree of concern for her related to the State Police’s ability to unravel the mystery of who killed her daughter.

A Mother’s Intuition

Janice Salli-Mustafa, mother of the late Phylicia Barnes.

On December 28, 2010 Janice Sallis said she had an awful and sickening feeling in her stomach, but didn’t know where it was coming from. She said that she called Phylicia’s cell phone in the hopes that her bubbly well spirited daughter could cheer her up. Unfortunately, Phylicia never did answer her calls, so she contacted Deena Barnes and asked her “where is she”. Janice says that Deena stated, ” I was just about to call you. We can’t find her. The Police is here now”.  At that moment Janice exclaimed, “what do you mean you can’t find her”. She asked to speak to the police officer who was there. The cop attempted to put Janice at ease and told her don’t worry, she will be walking in the door any time now. Janice begged the officer to go out and look for her daughter and told him the first 48 hours are very crucial. The officer told Pylicia’s mother that, “you watch too much T.V.”. I am not shocked by such a comment from a supposedly trained professional given the caliber of some cops employed by the Baltimore Police, but what an insensitive thing to say to a parent who is concerned for the safety of her child? Janice told me that the 4 month long drawn out search for Phylicia had began to take it’s toll own her, and she was filled with so much grief and sadness, that she prayed to God and told him that she could no longer endure thoughts about what Phylicia may have been going through, if she was being abused, sexually molested, or held in captivity somewhere against her will, and she asked God to bring her baby home. Her prayers were answered just 5 hours later when she got the call that Phylicia’s body had been found floating in the Susquehanna River in Maryland. I asked Janice during my interview with her what she believed happened to young Phylicia. Janice admitted she had all sorts of horrible thoughts of what could have happened to her daughter as any parent would understandably experience. Janice said that the drugs and alcohol could have caused Phylicia to have some sort of reaction that may have caused her death, that she could have died from alcohol poisoning, or died in her sleep. She said Deena and MJ could have panicked and simply disposed of the child’s body instead of reporting it to the authorities or seeking medical care for Phylicia out of fear of being charged with a crime . Janice also believes that Deena and MJ both have such shady characters that she believe they have dirt on each other that could result in criminal prosecution, and that anything is possible to have occurred with Phylicia under their watch. Janice also conveyed to me that she believes the volume of young males in and out of Deena’s apartment wasn’t without purpose. She believes that they were dealing in drugs. This statement raised a red flag for me, as I recalled a strange Facebook post that Micheal Johnson made during the early stage of the investigation. Micheal posted that Deena should tell Phylicia’s mother what was going on at the apartment, a post that was mysteriously deleted a short time later. Janice talked about the party that was held at the apartment the night before, and she said she was told that, the MJ relative (cousin) who had stayed the night had been up with Phylicia until about 4.a.m. Janice said she knows her daughter and if she was up that late, that Phylicia wasn’t getting up until around 2:00 p.m. or so, but also admitted that if Phylicia was going to a hair appointment, her daughter would have been up getting ready in anticipation of Kelly picking her up. Janice said Phylicia was like most southern females and very meticulous about her appearance especially her hair. Phylicia would have made that hair appointment regardless of how late she was up. Janice also confirmed something that Deena said during the BTI. Deena said on the “Peas In Their Pods” radio broadcast that Micheal Johnson had arrived at the apartment around 11:30 a.m. on Dec. 28 to pick up a younger cousin. Janice said MJ did in fact pick the relative up to take him to his grandmother’s home, because he wasn’t supposed to be their with Phylicia, but Janice believes that MJ wanted to be at the apartment with Phylicia alone himself. She believes that Phylicia may have in fact been sleeping on the sofa as reported at that time, but upon MJ’s return to the apartment a young beautiful Phylicia Barnes may have been exposed indecently in preparation to get dressed for her hair appointment, and more than likely subdued from a possible late night drug and alcohol  fueled party the night before, extremely vulnerable, and was probably pounced on by Micheal Johnson. An attack which seems plausible considering the child was alone and possibly suffering from a night of drug abuse condoned and instituted by Deena and MJ’s clan. Janice also hasn’t ruled out a scenario that Phylicia may have been purposefully lured to Baltimore by Deena Barnes for the purpose of offering the pretty teen as a sacrifice to sex crazed drug dealers to settle a financial debt. Janice and I talked about the apparent eagerness of Deena wanting Phylicia to come to Baltimore this particular occasion, a trip in which Deena personally paid for Phylicia’s plane ticket. The F.B.I’s introduction of the Child Porn element of the case along with the pornographic images of a minor obtained during the investigation can only serve to fuel the mother’s perspective related to this scenario. Janice shared with me in explicit and convincing detail that a beautiful Phylicia Barnes would never willingly take off her clothes for anyone, more importantly adult males. Her mom says Phylicia was so modest about her body that she even felt uncomfortable if Janice herself walked into the room while the child was changing her clothes. Janice said Phlicia would say, “Mommie I don’t have any clothes on”. Janice believes that if any of the alleged pornographic images that the authorities have obtained in this case are in fact of her daughter, that Phylicia Simone Barnes either was forced to pose nude , completely incoherent, or she was  unabbreviated. It is heartbreaking to think that this promising young child’s dignity was stripped from her in this fashion.

Other Rumors Dispelled

On many of the Blogs and Social Media Sites that I have read, like Facebook, and Myspace related too this case, I have encountered postings related to Janice Sallis’ oldest daughter Shauntel Sallis reportedly having made  completely absurd comments that Janice is directly responsible for the death of her daughter. Janice revealed to me that her daughter is troubled, and has been since her youth. Shauntel now an adult is also the mother of a child of  New York based Rapper “Frenchie”. Janice states that the pair have a beautiful 5 year old son. Janice points out that like most troubled youth, Shauntel had issues with authority, was extremely disrespectful, and added that on one occasion at age 17, her daughter displayed her index finger to her younger 7 year old brother, and cursed the child out. Janice said that Shauntel was a very negative influence on her younger children, and even caused Phylicia’s attitude to change somewhat towards there step father Mustafa. Janice wanted Phylicia to interact with older siblings that could be a better role model for her, and is the main reason that she wanted Phylicia to get to know the other siblings in her family. She admits that she was lied to and fed fabrications, by a deceitful and sick monster in Deena Barnes. Janice also said that Shauntel is in fact friends with Russell Barnes’ kids, Deena, Kelly, and Bryan. She believes that Shauntel’s bi-polar like behavior is mostly responsible for much of the troubling statements that her daughter has posted on Social Media. Janice is lost understanding the manner in which her daughter interacts with her, by calling her the B word and using other explicits toward her mother, though Janice admits that she would die for Shauntel if necessary despite her continued disrespect toward her. Janice remains concerned for Shauntel’s troubles even now with this sort of continued behavior in her adulthood, but for now at this very critical period in her family’s lives she cannot tolerate the disrespect even if her daughter is facing mental issues. It is Janice’s hope by expressing this publicly that Shauntel’s comments and inappropriate behavior will be met with the understanding that her daughter, who she loves dearly is facing challenges in her life.

In conclusion, I must say that as a writer I have encountered few stories that are both as compelling and empowering as the one that Janice Sallis has shared with us all. I am deeply moved, humbled, and honored to have been afforded the opportunity to express the perspective of this mother related to the Murder of her loving daughter. I am sure the details of her account will in fact move many, but I can assure you that the spirit of this woman, Janice Sallis, is unconquered by those heartless souls who took Phylicia Simone Barnes from her and her family’s lives. Her enduring strength coupled with her love and fear of God in the face of the most tragic experience that any parent could ever imagine, is a how to guide on perseverance for us all. Although mother Sallis expressed to me that they day they killed Phylicia, they also killed her, I am confident she will be redeemed, and we must pray that Mr. & Mrs. Mustafa along with their remaining children can find the courage to continue on. Justice for Phylicia Simone Barnes must prevail and for her family.

I was sitting in the den at home working on a Blog Post about the Phylicia Barnes Murder case when my cell phone rang. When I saw the number, from the State of Georgia, I knew instantly that the caller was Janice Sallis, the little girl’s mom.

Janice described Russell Barnes as violent, uncaring, self absorbed, and quite capable of aiding the killers in murdering Phylicia as well as conspiring to dispose of his own daughter’s body. This is something that I eluded to unknowingly in a previous blog post. Janice talked about the domestic violence that she endured at the hands of Russell during and after her pregnancy of Phylicia. She conveyed his complete displeasure of her pregnancy and believes that he was so desperate to terminate her pregnancy, that he beat her in an attempt to cause her to have a miscarriage. In fact Janice revealed that Russell Barnes divorced her because she refused to “get rid” of her baby. Janice explicitly recalled one episode of abuse when Russell woke her during the early morning hours and began to drag her throughout the house,only because she wasn’t speaking coherently after being abruptly awaken. She said that he only stopped the abuse upon her mother awakening and rebuffing Russell, and reminding him that she had just recently given birth to their daughter Phylicia. Not just that though, on the day that Janice actually delivered her pretty little baby, Russell Barnes didn’t find it necessary for him to be at the hospital during the birth of his child. He did arrive hours later, stayed a few minutes, and left. To make it plain and simple, according to Janice Sallis, Russell Barnes made her life a living hell solely because he didn’t want Phylicia.

When a young tot Phylicia asked for her father, brother Mustafa called Russell and informed him that his daughter had been asking for him. Russell offered the excuse that he did not have transportation, but Mustafa advise him that if he simply gave his address that he would bring his pretty little daughter to see him. Janice said Russell Barnes never returned their call to make arrangements to have his child brought to visit him.  Janice says that when it was time for her to go back to school and finish her nursing education Mustafa was her rock looking after the kids. This allowed Phylicia and Janice’s older daughter Shauntel Sallis the opportunity to bond with their step dad, who cared for and provided for them. He taught Phylica everything. Janice chuckled as she bragged about the fact that Phylicia could put bait on a fishing rod and other activities that Mustafa engaged the children in. To say the least, brother Mustafa was very much Dad at their home. During Phylicia’s Teen years she obtained a job as a counselor, mentoring to her peers and younger students at her school, Union Academy. It was because of her ambitions and having the astuteness to be employed even at her young age, that allowed her to help her parents purchase  her first car (Mercury Mountaineer). Janice put out a call to Russell Barnes and asked that he simply purchase 1 tire for Phylicia’s truck, and he just simply displayed the usual demeanor bitching about child support. Janice said that he told her that he would go through child support to help pay for the tire. Needless to say he did nothing. Janice also explained that her anger directed towards Russell isn’t from what he did to her, his character, or his dead beat dad history, but because when the story first broke about Phylicia’s disappearance, Russell tried to grab the reigns and past himself off as the loving caring dad, when in fact it should have been Mustafa on Nancy Grace, taking and fielding questions from the Police and the media, not Russell Barnes. Janice also points out that Russell Barnes has been a complete distraction, if not a hindrance in the investigation into the murder of Phylicia Barnes. Some of the key points or rumors I should say, that have become widely known as facts related to the case, were in fact fabricated lies manufactured, not by Deena, Micheal Johnson, or Kelly, but by Russell Barnes himself. I will exploit those details later in this post. In the wake of Phylicia’s death it became abundantly clear immediately that Phylicia Barnes was no ordinary 16 year old. Her school classmates loved her dearly, and Janice explains that it was the child’s loving, compassionate, and caring personality that drew most people to Phylicia. Janice prided herself on the fact that her daughter wasn’t confrontational and she never witnessed the child engaged in any kind of argument what so ever. She says Phylicia would defuse tense situations, by jokingly saying you go sit down. Phylicia was also extremely talented in many facets of the arts as well as academics. Janice describes her late daughter as near genius. Many might venture to say that all mothers say and believe this about their kids, but Phylicia had the grades to prove it, and was scheduled to leave high school a year early to pursue a degree in Child Pyschology. Also, Phylicia had tremendous social interaction skills. Janice said her daughter was able to blend in with the diverse ethnic student body at Union Academy. Phylicia hung out with white, black, and kids from various ethnic backgrounds, a personal trait that allowed the studious child to excel at school. Much of what Janice told me about her daughter, I already knew from my investigation of her case and news articles I read about Phylicia. I didn’t take rocket science to see that she was a standout amongst her peers. But why so much focus on Russell Barnes, some may ask? It is extremely important for Janice Sallis that the public get a complete picture of the true character of Phylicia’s Biological Father who has been making some false comments in the media, and conducting himself in an outright idiotic fashion. Let’s revisit some of the fabricated lies that Janice says Russell Barnes Manufactured:

1. When media reports broke that a young Phylicia Barnes was last seen walking to get some food, that account didn’t come from Micheal Johnson as the public has been led to believe. That account was created by Russell Barnes, a fact that Janice Sallis believes was created to shield Deena Barnes from potential suspicion in the disappearance of her little sister. Janice points out that Russell stated to a news agency that, “Phylicia came to live at my house and left my home to go get something to eat”. That sounds plausible if Phylicia and Russell both were actually staying at Deena’s place, or somewhere else in Baltimore, but there is one problem, Russell Barnes lived in Atlanta, Georgia when Phylicia went missing. So why did Russell create such a diversion that was crucial during the initial hours of Phylicia’s disappearance? This lie led the police to believe she would be coming back relatively soon and lessoned the sense of urgency to search for the child.

2. In Mimi’s blog post over at Opal Fusion Mag, she posed the rhetorical question, “Who told Mcheal Johnson to stay away”. Janice Sallis reveals that Russell Barnes actually told MJ to stay away, and offered the rationalization that he was afraid that he might kill him. However, during the Blog Talk Interview, Deena and Kelly Barnes painted the picture as if MJ just mysteriously disappeared while they made repeated attempts to contact him, only for him to suddenly reappear during the early morning hours. It seems as if they were creating an argument that his unexplained unavailability was  ample time for him to have the opportunity to dispose of Phylicia’s body. Janice was confused as to why Russell would do that. You would think since Micheal was the last person to see Phylicia, common sense should have kicked in that he needed to  be available if for no other purpose but to talk to the cops. Besides Janice said she wanted to speak with him and look him in his eyes when she spoke to him about her daughter. Russell’s request for MJ to disappear is very suspicious to say the least.

3. Russell Barnes has been saying that he was in the streets looking for his daughter, and even that was a lie. When Janice and Mustafa arrived in Baltimore December 30, 2010. They were combing the streets of Baltimore in some of the roughest parts of town looking for Phylicia. Janice says they encountered two small kids who say they saw a girl that fit Phylicia’s description accompanied by an older guy. The kids say she appeared to be “drugged up” and scared. Janice and Mustafa calls Russell and tried to convince him to meet them on Belvedere Avenue where they were with those kids, and Russell made the excuse that the neighborhood they were in was Bloods Gang turf, and he needed to contact a Bloods Leader to escort him there. I was completely floored when she told me this. In fact I think I fell just short of calling Russell Barnes a fucking coward. Janice said later she learned that they were having a re-pass like affair at Deena’s place with family, friends, and food as if they already knew that Phylicia was dead. They all sat around laughing, kidding, and joking as if there wasn’t a care in the world. The cops dismissed the allege sighting of Phylicia  by the youth, because one of them stated she was wearing shorts and it was winter with snow on the ground. Well in my mind, if Phylicia was hustled out of Deena’s apartment by someone, that account by the kids wasn’t too far fetched. The child could have actually just simply been wearing shorts at the time. Janice’s account of this incident is upsetting, and could have been a potentially missed opportunity to find the child, and was completely botched by the cop they reported it too. The Officer never even filed a Police Report about this incident.

4. Janice said that Russell Barnes also made false statements to the police also about Phylicia’s disappearance, but I will not elaborate on that in fear of potentially jeopardizing the investigation into the child’s murder. Janice Sallis also cleared up some confusion surrounding the so called Barnes Family members that were supposedly so concerned about young Phylicia during the time that searches were being conducted to locate her. Phylicia is only related to Russell Barnes, Russell’s  half brother (Sgt. Jackson), Deena, Kelly, and Bryan Barnes. The others, including so called uncle Harry Watson and his daughter are not blood related to Phylicia or even Russell Barnes for that matter. Janice says that Russell was adopted at age 2. Hell he isn’t even a Barnes himself. This might explain the complete lack of grief. It does seem to justify the hollow public posture that Russell Barnes  has maintained which troubles many who have followed this case. Janice indicated that Russell’s abandonment as a child enables him to hold an emotional detachment from his biological family. I am glad Janice had the courage to share her heartfelt story with the public and exposing Russell Barnes for the fraud that he is. Janice admits she became extremely angry after she learned a little over a month ago that Russell marched onto Union Academy’s school grounds unannounced with news media in an attempt to continue his fake display of concern about what happen to Phylicia. Janice says he was supposedly trying to see what the school was like where his daughter attended and meet her friends. Well news flash Russell, Phylicia has been deceased nearly a year now, and her friends have since graduated and no longer attend Union. Russell Barnes had never visited Union Academy the entire time that Phylicia was enrolled there. So why go to the school after all this time? Janice stated that it’s this deranged and idiotic behavior by Russell Barnes that sends a negative and false perception to the media and the public. It’s sickening now, after we’ve learned that he never wanted pretty Phylicia Simone Barnes and clearly demonstrates his possible culpability in the conspiracy to cover up the murder of his own child. Russell if you are reading this I have some advice for you, stay out of the media because you have been exposed. If you truly want to aid in solving Phylicia’s murder, then you should demand your other kids and members of your adoptive family come clean and fest up about what actually went down regarding Phylicia’s killing. I think that it’s safe to say that you all are implicated now.

The late Phylicia Simone Barnes

Deena’s Place

Most readers probably have already listened to the Blog Talk Interview on “Peas In Their Pods” radio, and recall the confusion surrounding who was actually there the day young Phylicia went missing. Deena literally stumbled over her tongue and paused very awkwardly multiple times when questioned about some of these details. She reluctantly admitted that a younger cousin/brother also stayed at the apartment with her. Janice revealed that 3 males in fact stayed at her apartment. They were Micheal Johnson, his younger brothers 19 year old “Bootz”, and 16 year old Dulaney. Also, the day before Phylicia disappeared they had another party and another adult male cousin of Micheal Johnson had stayed the night, and probably because he was too high to go home. So the picture is much clearer now that we realize in fact 4 males may have been at Deena’s apartment on this fateful day. Janice was devastated to learn that three males were staying at the apartment after she had been assured by Deena Barnes that only she and Phylicia would be there prior to the child’s December 17, 2010 arrival in Baltimore. This revelation also clears up the mystery as to who the 4 males were that Federal Investigators had obtained Search Warrants of Social Media, and Email Accounts for. When Janice and her husband Mustafa arrived in Baltimore following her having been notified that Phylicia was missing, she cornered Deena Barnes and challenged her about some of the activities she had learned Deena allowed Phylicia to engage in while staying with her. What Deena Barnes didn’t know was that, one of Phylicia’s friends, another minor (13-14 years old) had poured her heart out, crying, telling Janice, and Mustafa that Phylicia’s older Sister had allowed her to drink vodka and smoke pot while she was staying in Baltimore on previous trips to visit her family there. Janice described the child as distraught fearing that something may have happened to Phylicia, and felt guilty that she didn’t tell her what Phylicia shared with her. Janice armed with this information, apparently caught Deena off guard as she replied to Janice, “she only took a few puffs”, referring to Phylicia being introduced to smoking marijuana. Russell Barnes who was also present during this exchange between the two women replied, “Well when I was 15 my uncle gave me pot”. Janice states that she rebuffed Russell and said, “I don’t give a damn what your uncle gave you. This is my daughter”. Deena has since denied exposing Phylicia to alcohol and marijuana to the police , and the media. Deena also denied this during the BTI. Perhaps the most unsettling aspect of Phylicia’s disappearance is that the Baltimore City Police took 5 days before they treated Phylicia’s case seriously. This can only be attributed to the lie Russell Barnes started about Phylicia having been seen walking to get food. This was also ample enough time for Micheal Johnson, Deena, and the other males living at that apartment to clean up the place and possibly destroy crucial forensic evidence. This was a tearful and saddening element of the case which created another missed opportunity by police to obtain crucial information surrounding the disappearance of Phylicia Barnes.

The Investigation

Now that we know who some of  the key people are that were either visiting or staying at Deena Barnes’ apartment, it must be made clear to everyone concerned about what happened to Phylica Barnes, that there are some troubling factors in the case that may have aided in hindering the investigation of the child’s murder. Janice Sallis points out  that the slow movement by police in the initial phase of this investigation was paramount, primarily because there were lies told to cops by those closest to Phylicia in Baltimore. What many maybe unaware of is that Russell Barnes has a brother who is a ranking Police Officer, and that the younger cousin of Micheal Johnson who stayed overnight after the party the day prior to Phylicia’s disappearance, mother is in fact a Baltimore City Police Detective. This could simply be a mere coincidence, but Janice and I discussed the culture of law enforcement and their silent code to protect their own. I have been bloging for some time now that the individuals under suspicion in this case, more than likely obtained help from expert sources considering the life style that many of them engage in, and after viewing their Social Media pages on Facebook and Myspace (into rap music and posing in pictures with guns), and the drug usage that has been alleged to have occurred at Deena’s place. I am confident that the males related to this case lack the aptitude to cover their tracks so thoroughly in such a complexing murder case without the assistance of parties with knowledge regarding what exactly cops  would look for in a criminal case of this nature. It could very well be that police were procrastinating during the initial phase of this investigation because fellow law enforcement personnel are related to potential suspects in this case, but either way, the fact that there are cops whom hold such close ties to the very people who were physically at the apartment the day Phylicia went missing is an alarming and disturbing element of this entire ordeal that can not be ignored. Janice and I both agree that fortunately this case is now in the hands of the Maryland State Police, an agency with an impeccable reputation of professionalism in criminal investigations of this magnitude. Janice has continuously displayed her gratitude to investigators currently working Phylicia’s murder case, sighting that they are in contact with her on a regular basis with details of the case’ progress. Janice did point out that she believes that the Police affiliation of Russell Barnes and the Johnson families does pose a degree of concern for her related to the State Police’s ability to unravel the mystery of who killed her daughter.

A Mother’s Intuition

Janice Salli-Mustafa, mother of the late Phylicia Barnes.

On December 28, 2010 Janice Sallis said she had an awful and sickening feeling in her stomach, but didn’t know where it was coming from. She said that she called Phylicia’s cell phone in the hopes that her bubbly well spirited daughter could cheer her up. Unfortunately, Phylicia never did answer her calls, so she contacted Deena Barnes and asked her “where is she”. Janice says that Deena stated, ” I was just about to call you. We can’t find her. The Police is here now”.  At that moment Janice exclaimed, “what do you mean you can’t find her”. She asked to speak to the police officer who was there. The cop attempted to put Janice at ease and told her don’t worry, she will be walking in the door any time now. Janice begged the officer to go out and look for her daughter and told him the first 48 hours are very crucial. The officer told Pylicia’s mother that, “you watch too much T.V.”. I am not shocked by such a comment from a supposedly trained professional given the caliber of some cops employed by the Baltimore Police, but what an insensitive thing to say to a parent who is concerned for the safety of her child? Janice told me that the 4 month long drawn out search for Phylicia had began to take it’s toll own her, and she was filled with so much grief and sadness, that she prayed to God and told him that she could no longer endure thoughts about what Phylicia may have been going through, if she was being abused, sexually molested, or held in captivity somewhere against her will, and she asked God to bring her baby home. Her prayers were answered just 5 hours later when she got the call that Phylicia’s body had been found floating in the Susquehanna River in Maryland. I asked Janice during my interview with her what she believed happened to young Phylicia. Janice admitted she had all sorts of horrible thoughts of what could have happened to her daughter as any parent would understandably experience. Janice said that the drugs and alcohol could have caused Phylicia to have some sort of reaction that may have caused her death, that she could have died from alcohol poisoning, or died in her sleep. She said Deena and MJ could have panicked and simply disposed of the child’s body instead of reporting it to the authorities or seeking medical care for Phylicia out of fear of being charged with a crime . Janice also believes that Deena and MJ both have such shady characters that she believe they have dirt on each other that could result in criminal prosecution, and that anything is possible to have occurred with Phylicia under their watch. Janice also conveyed to me that she believes the volume of young males in and out of Deena’s apartment wasn’t without purpose. She believes that they were dealing in drugs. This statement raised a red flag for me, as I recalled a strange Facebook post that Micheal Johnson made during the early stage of the investigation. Micheal posted that Deena should tell Phylicia’s mother what was going on at the apartment, a post that was mysteriously deleted a short time later. Janice talked about the party that was held at the apartment the night before, and she said she was told that, the MJ relative (cousin) who had stayed the night had been up with Phylicia until about 4.a.m. Janice said she knows her daughter and if she was up that late, that Phylicia wasn’t getting up until around 2:00 p.m. or so, but also admitted that if Phylicia was going to a hair appointment, her daughter would have been up getting ready in anticipation of Kelly picking her up. Janice said Phylicia was like most southern females and very meticulous about her appearance especially her hair. Phylicia would have made that hair appointment regardless of how late she was up. Janice also confirmed something that Deena said during the BTI. Deena said on the “Peas In Their Pods” radio broadcast that Micheal Johnson had arrived at the apartment around 11:30 a.m. on Dec. 28 to pick up a younger cousin. Janice said MJ did in fact pick the relative up to take him to his grandmother’s home, because he wasn’t supposed to be their with Phylicia, but Janice believes that MJ wanted to be at the apartment with Phylicia alone himself. She believes that Phylicia may have in fact been sleeping on the sofa as reported at that time, but upon MJ’s return to the apartment a young beautiful Phylicia Barnes may have been exposed indecently in preparation to get dressed for her hair appointment, and more than likely subdued from a possible late night drug and alcohol  fueled party the night before, extremely vulnerable, and was probably pounced on by Micheal Johnson. An attack which seems plausible considering the child was alone and possibly suffering from a night of drug abuse condoned and instituted by Deena and MJ’s clan. Janice also hasn’t ruled out a scenario that Phylicia may have been purposefully lured to Baltimore by Deena Barnes for the purpose of offering the pretty teen as a sacrifice to sex crazed drug dealers to settle a financial debt. Janice and I talked about the apparent eagerness of Deena wanting Phylicia to come to Baltimore this particular occasion, a trip in which Deena personally paid for Phylicia’s plane ticket. The F.B.I’s introduction of the Child Porn element of the case along with the pornographic images of a minor obtained during the investigation can only serve to fuel the mother’s perspective related to this scenario. Janice shared with me in explicit and convincing detail that a beautiful Phylicia Barnes would never willingly take off her clothes for anyone, more importantly adult males. Her mom says Phylicia was so modest about her body that she even felt uncomfortable if Janice herself walked into the room while the child was changing her clothes. Janice said Phlicia would say, “Mommie I don’t have any clothes on”. Janice believes that if any of the alleged pornographic images that the authorities have obtained in this case are in fact of her daughter, that Phylicia Simone Barnes either was forced to pose nude , completely incoherent, or she was  unabbreviated. It is heartbreaking to think that this promising young child’s dignity was stripped from her in this fashion.

Other Rumors Dispelled

On many of the Blogs and Social Media Sites that I have read, like Facebook, and Myspace related too this case, I have encountered postings related to Janice Sallis’ oldest daughter Shauntel Sallis reportedly having made  completely absurd comments that Janice is directly responsible for the death of her daughter. Janice revealed to me that her daughter is troubled, and has been since her youth. Shauntel now an adult is also the mother of a child of  New York based Rapper “Frenchie”. Janice states that the pair have a beautiful 5 year old son. Janice points out that like most troubled youth, Shauntel had issues with authority, was extremely disrespectful, and added that on one occasion at age 17, her daughter displayed her index finger to her younger 7 year old brother, and cursed the child out. Janice said that Shauntel was a very negative influence on her younger children, and even caused Phylicia’s attitude to change somewhat towards there step father Mustafa. Janice wanted Phylicia to interact with older siblings that could be a better role model for her, and is the main reason that she wanted Phylicia to get to know the other siblings in her family. She admits that she was lied to and fed fabrications, by a deceitful and sick monster in Deena Barnes. Janice also said that Shauntel is in fact friends with Russell Barnes’ kids, Deena, Kelly, and Bryan. She believes that Shauntel’s bi-polar like behavior is mostly responsible for much of the troubling statements that her daughter has posted on Social Media. Janice is lost understanding the manner in which her daughter interacts with her, by calling her the B word and using other explicits toward her mother, though Janice admits that she would die for Shauntel if necessary despite her continued disrespect toward her. Janice remains concerned for Shauntel’s troubles even now with this sort of continued behavior in her adulthood, but for now at this very critical period in her family’s lives she cannot tolerate the disrespect even if her daughter is facing mental issues. It is Janice’s hope by expressing this publicly that Shauntel’s comments and inappropriate behavior will be met with the understanding that her daughter, who she loves dearly is facing challenges in her life.

In conclusion, I must say that as a writer I have encountered few stories that are both as compelling and empowering as the one that Janice Sallis has shared with us all. I am deeply moved, humbled, and honored to have been afforded the opportunity to express the perspective of this mother related to the Murder of her loving daughter. I am sure the details of her account will in fact move many, but I can assure you that the spirit of this woman, Janice Sallis, is unconquered by those heartless souls who took Phylicia Simone Barnes from her and her family’s lives. Her enduring strength coupled with her love and fear of God in the face of the most tragic experience that any parent could ever imagine, is a how to guide on perseverance for us all. Although mother Sallis expressed to me that they day they killed Phylicia, they also killed her, I am confident she will be redeemed, and we must pray that Mr. & Mrs. Mustafa along with their remaining children can find the courage to continue on. Justice for Phylicia Simone Barnes must prevail and for her family.

    Well since Janice is so open and honest next time you talk to her ask her why was there an empty casket at the funeral? Many people don’t know as soon as Simone’s body got back to NC it went from the plane straight to be cremated. So why have a casket so folk would think Simone was in it when it was really empty???

    • dbrianadams says:

      Ashlie have you lost your mind?

    I finally finished reading this article, thanx for keeping this case alive, Mrs. Sallis-Mustafa I admire your strength, negatiive people, you only know her name not her story.

  7. Bryan Barnes says:

    I being the brother of Phylicia Barnes, am surprised that a “Journalist” would write and publish such a story. I mean, we’re used to the crap Janice throws at us so this is not a surprised but to print nonfactual statements about my family is crazy! I dont know all that went on with Janice and my dad, but I do know that if it was that bad; and if she felt like we were such a threat to Phylicias life, why would you send her up to be with us on MULTIPLE occasions? Why would you send you child to another state without doing any investigation on what’s going on? She had no worries sending her here because she knew Phylicia was safe. Now, some sick person took my sister away, and we get dragged through the mud. Janice would not know the circumstances around Phylicia’s disappearance because she was no where to be found! She went missing on Dec. 28, Janice got here to Baltimore THREE DAYS LATER when Russell Barnes, my dad got here the day after she went missing. Janice stayed for 2-3 days, while my dad was here for over six weeks. Janice has NEVER returned to help in any searches, or called to check on the status on the case. My dad has hit the streets, with the rest of the Barnes family, and friends to search woods, empty houses and everywhere else for Phylicia. But hey, my dad didnt care… Both parents had their faults when it came down to parenting im sure, who doesnt? But that doesnt matter! Phylicia’s killer is still roaming the earth and in my opinion, we should be sharing her story to find the killer versus, spreading lies and untrue statements to point the finger. There’s a lot and I mean A LOT we could say about Phylicia’s life in north carolina- but we havent bashed, blamed, blogged or anything. That’s because we, the Barnes family are focused on getting the killer of the streets, and helping other families going through what we’ve been through!!! I don’t know what the outcome of all this will be, but we will continue to rally for Phylicia and other slain youth! We will continue to pray for resolution to this case, and we will continue to show Janice and all others the love of God. I’ve personally reached out to Janice several times, just to check on her but no response… We just get stuff like this blog… but we don’t care…???

    • dbrianadams says:

      Bryan I am grateful to finally here something from Phylicia’s Baltimore Family. Though I respect much of what your opinion is on much of what you said, baring the details related to your Fathers relationship with Janice Sallis, I tend not to completely agree with you. I will spare the details of my specific perception regarding the tragic ending of your beautiful baby sister, but rather I will simply say this. Anyone closely following this case that has a logic mindset would have trouble digesting much of what your siblings have personally put out to the public via media. Their posture alone both publicly and during interviews depict an uncaring demeanor. Why is that? No one from your family has stepped forward to refute what most of us have been saying in Social Media sites up until now. Why? I want to remind you of a comment that you personally made in the media yourself. “We don’t care who is responsible for Phylicia’s murder. We want Justice, even if it’s a family member”. It’s safe to say that your comment tends to infer a subtle degree of suspicion toward your family from you as well. I think your final comment here ‘but we don’t care??”, has been the standard perception of your family’s position from the very start. Thank you for visiting The People’s Champion Blog!

      corrections bryan my husband and i arrived on the 30th of Dec and you have not a clue what went on with ur dad and me when it came to Simone. As a matter of fact i’ve never bashed out at you and you’ve never attempted to call me as you claim and how dare you state that my family and I didn’t go out looking for her ur coward ass dad is the one whom needed an escort from a blood leitentant to accompany him to go to belvedere ave. The only person that i can truly give credit to is Harry’s devotion. ur sister claimed that Simone told her everything than y in the hell did she administer vodka and weed so that Simone could open up to her. and as far as you knowing anything that went on in N.C. you have absolutely not a clue. I remember reading an article stated by you that you wanted justice for Simone even if it were family members. so lets not forget about what was really going on in baltimore during the time we were there. I can’t recall any of you all other than Harry looking for my baby not you, ur sisters or ur dad all I saw was a bunch of the barnes family members being at deena’s apt eating and congregating. So plz don’t question my faith in my Almighty I don’t know who you and ur family worship. All I know is that ur big sister lied to me about everything when Simone was allowed to visit you all and without knowledge of that wild life that ur sister(s) introduced my baby to I was blinded and if I were able to see the corruptions that had been exposed to Simone you damn right she wouldn’t been in bodymore. Now all of a sudden you and ur sisters have amnesia about who ur dad really is. Just in case you haven’t heard my dear the truth always hurt. I’d like to know when did you try and reach out to me. And if you feel a need to tell what went on in my household in N.C. be my guest because I certainly don’t give a damn.

    • Janice M. Sallis-Mustafa says:

      y would i call and check on the status of the case when all we got were lies after more lies and i couldn’t take another day being in bodymore around ur fake ass siblings and dad maybe he was able to stay over six weeks because he and others were capitalizing off Simone’s death and by u being a fire fighter don’t you think it’s ur sworn duties to expose ur siblings and could you explain to me y ur precious deena didn’t call me when my baby came up missing but she called ur daddy who was the non’custodial parent since ur the spokesperson for the barnes y not speak on all of the real facts, issues and truth. I never had any hard feelings against you and Simone also told me that you called her a cum stain. So again bryan where’s were loyalty in all of this

      • Shauntel Sallis says:

        It’s so amusing you acknowledge yourself and your husband out searching for Simone when myself was the brains of the search going on in the rough neighborhoods n Baltimorem, it’s ashame how you Took me Your eldest child out the picture and you praise your husband lets be real Ms Janice! The wonderful mother of Phylicia, you are not being honest and my little sister whom I watched while. Her dear daddy father Raheem slept all day would not be pleased with the shenanigans being played so sad that at your age you carry on in this manner! I was there outside searching with you and your “dear husband” my sister Is dead and all you can do Is keep up bullshit! You are not the only one hurting! Tell the world how you tried so hard to break my sister and my bond uP tell them how you brOke up siblings love because of your Evil thoughts! PSB for Love not Hate!!!

    • IN A WORLD OF SHOCK says:

      BRYAN . . . LET’S BE REAL! NOBODY HAS YET BASHED YOU! AND IF YOU ARE SPEAKING ON BEHALF OF FAMILY, SPEAK HONESTLY AND CORRECTLY. PHYLICIA IS JUST AS MUCH OF YOUR SISTER AS DEENA & KELLY, YALL CAME FROM THE SAME SPERM . . .

      DEENA FAILED TO PROTECT PHYLICIA & HER AND KELLY BLATANTLY LIED ON THE PEASINTHEIRPOD INTERVIEW, YOU WERE THERE, YOU HEARD THE WHISPERING AND ALL OF THAT. YOU KNOW AS A BROTHER WHAT THE TRUTH IS, DON’T LIE OR PROTECT THEM. IF THEY DID THAT TO PHYLICIA, THINK WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF YOU PISS THEM OFF THE SAME WAY? THEY WILL BE PLOTTING ON YOUR ASS NEXT.

      YOU IN YOUR HEART KNOW WHAT THE TRUTH IS, SO LET’S BE REAL MR. FIREMAN, CONVINCE THEM TO DO THE RIGHT THING, THE LORD SAW IT ALL AND HE KNOWS WHAT THE TRUTH IS.

      DEENA SHOULD HAVE NEVER ALLOWED PHYLICIA TO DRINK OR USE ANY KIND OF DRUGS OR BE WITH THOSE THUGS. SHE DIDN’T THINK YOU ALL WERE A THREAT, OR SHE WOULDN’T HAVE SENT HER, SHE WAS UPSET WHEN SHE FOUND OUT ALL OF THINGS THAT WERE GOING ON AFTER PHYLICIA’S DISAPPEARANCE/MURDER.

      DON’T MAKE IT YOUR PROBLEM BRYAN WHEN NOBODY NEVER INVOLVED YOU, YOU KNOW DAMN WELL DEENA HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT OR KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED, AND IF YOU KNOW, WHICH YOU KNOW YOU DO, TELL THE FUCKING TRUTH AND STOP BEING A COWARD, SUCKER, FOOL, WHATEVER IT IS . . .

      MAYBE SHE GOT THERE WHEN SHE COULD AND STAYED AS LONG AS SHE COULD, WHAT YOU WANT HER TO DO KEEP LOOKING IN PLACES SHE KNOW HER DAUGHTER WOULDN’T BE FOUND WHILE YOUR DAD, DEENA, KELLY AND EVERYBODY ELSE KEPT COVERING THEIR TRACKS AND BIDING AND WASTING TIME.

      YOUR DAD HAS FAMILY THERE SO HE CAN “STAY FOCUSED” ON COVERING FOR DEENA. YES PHYLICIA’S KILLERS ARE STILL ON THE LOSE AND YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE THEY TURN THEMSELVES AND EVERYBODY INVOLVED IN. I HOPE YOUR CONSCIOUS STARTS BEATING YOU DOWN AND YOU CAN’T SLEEP UNTIL YOU TELL THE TRUTH.

      WE KNOW YALL DON’T CARE, NO FUCKING LOVE LOSS TO YALL HUH? IMAGINE HOW PAIN THAT WOMAN BE FEELING I WOULDN’T TALK TO YALL CROOKED CRAZY IGNORANT ASSES EITHER.

    • Janice M. Sallis-Mustafa says:

      bryan plz y don’t u get over urself. U’ve stated that you went out and got me something to eat and waited on me hand and foot as well as ur family. y is it that i don’t about all of you all royal treatment(s) towards me. Yeah u say ur dad made those mistakes 24 and 18 yrs ago, however, that is y ur sisters behave in the ways that they do. There was not a caring father figure in none of his children’s lives, just in case u can’t comprehend that yrs ago mistake causes tragedies as far as my baby’s demize. If ur dad would have stood up and be a MAN and take responsibilities in his sexual pleasurable actions and help his babies mothers train their children with him in a positive, respectable along with guidance than deena and ur other sister would not have developed such triflyn actions. and as far as you proclaiming to have taken up a financial collection for me to return to baltimore to help you all look for my baby forgive me for lashing out on yall I can’t recall you all joining us to look for Simone. From day one all ur dad did was behave as a media hog to have the spot light on himself portraying to be the father of the year (NOT) he had even made arrangements to have vigils in a circle with everybody holding candles singing we shall over come. Not one vigil but two or perhaps three vigils back to back outside of deena’s apt therefore i had become so damn irritated with his laughing and wanting to take control over how he thought with my baby. How dare you all speak of God when yall do the absolute opposite in conducting urselves like Christians suppose to do. And getting back to ur accusations about u and ur family catering to me hand and foot than y was it that we had to stay in a hotel spending $100.00 per night including buying food buying gas and more gas just to circle baltimore looking for Simone when ur family had already known that we weren’t going to be able to find her via vehicle transportation, you all should’ve told us that we should have rented a boat instead to search the rivers in maryland. so how about you try and make up another theory of dishonesty to me my family along with the entire nation to what really happened to my daughter under ur sneaky and betraying, lying and conniving sister deena. but don’t worry God will eventually snatch the covers off all liars within ur family and deena’s clans. And perhaps if you did have ur firefighting co-workers raise funds for my return, I’m sure that collection went on ALL of the expenses you all put into. So bryan plz don’t attempt to insult me with more of u alls bullcrap. Stop pissing on others and telling them that it’s raining. YOu should be ashamed of being a part of this senseless conspiracy that ur sisters and their circle cause my family. Until ur next comment i hope that u think before u start chopping ur lips to let out more delusions.

      • NICOLE says:

        THAT IS DEEP AND WOULD EXPLAIN WHY THEY WERE HAVING A REPASS/MEMORIAL/VIRGIL ON DEC. 28, THEY ALREADY KNEW SHE WAS DEAD. THAT IS A DARN SHAME! I THINK THE POLICE NEED TO LOOK MORE INTO THAT GUY’S BODY THAT WAS FOUND IN THE RIVER WITH HER. THAT’S VERY HARD TO BELIEVE IT WAS COINCIDENTAL.

        I AM A TRUE RELATIVE OF PHYLICIA AND I KNOW IN MY HEART THAT NONE OF THERE STORIES ADDED UP AT ALL, YES I SAID THAT DEENA WAS COVERING UP FOR MJ AND HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS IF NOT COVERING UP FOR HER DAM SELF, ALL OF THEM ARE FUCKING SUSPECTS IF YOU ASK ME I WISH I WAS AN AUTHORITY ALL OF THEM WOULD GO DOWN TOGETHER, I’VE NEVER ASSOCIATED THAT SIDE OF THE FAMILY BECAUSE I WAS ALREADY TAUGHT FROM MY SIDE OF THE FAMILY THEY WERE NO GOOD PEOPLE, BUT GOD HAS ALL THE ANSWERS BELIEVE AND TRUST IN HIM, HE IS GOING TO SEE ALL OF THEM GO DOWN TOGETHER ONE BY ONE, JUSTICE WILL BE SERVED FOR THE LIARS,AND MURDERS, YOU CAN RUN BUT YOU CAN NOT HIDE, I’M NOT SCARED OF NONE OF YOU BASTARDS, RUSSELL A DEAD ASS BEAT DAD FOR ALL OF HIS KIDS, SOMEBODY SHOULD PUT THERE FOOT UP IN HIS ASS LONG TIME AGO, AND THAT IS MY UNCLE WHOM ADOPTED HIM, SHOULD HAVE LEFT HIM WHERE THE HELL HE WAS.

    • Follower says:

      Bryan, how do you know what went on between two married people; were you there? Byran your job is to report crime to the police, you are a fireman arent you, to serve and protect? Just maybe, you’re protecting the wrong people (siblings). It is what it is and if Janice thinks the worst of your daddy, allow this grieving mother to have as many emotional turmoils as needed. Since when did this become your battle? What you should do is report whatever knowledge that you know on this case and nothing else to your superior. Det. Troopers, FBI should contact your supervisor and question your knowledge on Phylicia. Correct me if I’m wrong, just because a grieving mother is having emotional melt down, you felt it was necessary to say that Phylicia got what she deserves because your sister had a hidden agenda for Phylicia, and unfortunately, Phylicia trusted and loved you guys? So sad that she didn’t get the same love in return. If you guys loved her, one of you should have a conscious and tell the truth, I am just saying. Have you taken a minute out of your busy schedule to think that maybe this is the reason why Janice is venting because of all the lies that your people are telling, including your daddy?

      Chica you’re extremely mad, really you have some deep down issues? Are you Deena or Kelly because you’re taking this way tooo serious and personal. You’re sounding a little scary, maybe you need to lay on someone’s couch and breath.

    • Stephanie says:

      YOU SOUND LIKE AN IDIOT FOR THE STATEMENT “THERE IS ALOT WE COULD SAY ABOUT PHYLICIA’S LIFE IN NC”. DON’T TRY TO DISTRACT FROM THE GREAT JOB MRS. SALLIS DID RAISING THIS CHILD NO MATTER HOW PERFECT YOU THINK YOUR FATHER IS!

  8. Bryan Barnes says:

    dbrianadams- There was so much going on in the media at the time that we, as a family couldnt keep up. I tried to dispute all the negativity but it was like someone always found a way to twist up what the story is. I have my suspect(s) in mind but I cannot say names via the police department. As far as the “but we dont care…” I say that cuz people dont know what we do here. Nobody knows the amount of time,money, and resources my family and i put out in this case. Nobody knows the amount of searches we did, in the cold, snow, and rain. no one knows the amount of fliers we’ve purchased, printed and handed out. No one knows how many meetings we’ve sat through with the police, and FBI. No one knows how it feels to have to push through all this crap people throw at us, just to try to prove ourselves to people who already made up their mind about us. If we wouldve allowed all this bashing to slow us down, we wouldnt have made it this far in the case because since DAY ONE, we’ve been busting our tails to figure this out… We’ve done all police has asked of us. From interviews, to drug test on down, and passed everything. But nobody knows all that…

    @Janice- You know good and well I’ve been here for you since day one!!! Please don’t forget, when you were here, I sat through your talks about my dad, I went out and got you dinners. My family got you whatever you needed to make your stay here as comfortable as it could be at such a time. I/waited on you hand and foot while you were here. You and shauntel! The day they found Phylicias body, I personally called you and left a voicemail. You never called me back. I told you while you were here that if you ever needed anything, to let me know so dont sit here and act like we’re all bad and we dont care. I even had the fire department raise money just so you could get back here without having to pay out your pocket. If you wouldve answered the phone, or called me back we wouldve discussed all that… All I know is, we may have our differences of opinions, but we all want one thing. The killer of Phylicia caught and prosecuted. All this negativity gets us nowhere! I just think if we all worked together, like we did when you were here, we could get mad more work done! All the energy we’re using to fuss, fight and argue should be put towards JUSTICE!! Regardless, We’re still working up here. and as far as my dad goes, nope! I havent forgot who he is, what he did or anything else but what does that have to do with anything?? What he did 24 years ago doesnt matter. what he did 18 years doesnt matter. Why?? CUZ IT’S NOT HELPING SOLVE THE CASE!!!!!! It’s taking the attention off whats really going on… PHYLICIAS DEATH! Prayerfully, we’ll all get answers soon..,

    • SO OVER IT! JUSTICE PLEASE . . . says:

      BRYAN! I DON’T THINK ANYONE HAS ACCUSED YOU OF ANYTHING. YOU KNOW HONESTLY WITHIN YOURSELF THAT DEENA HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT OR KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED. IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW MUCH OR FAST THE MEDIA IS THROWING STUFF AT YOU, THE TRUTH IS THE TRUTH AND A LIE IS A LIE AND A LIE DON’T CARE WHO TELLS IT. KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE, SO IF IT’S THE TRUTH, IT’S GOING TO COME OUT . . . ONLY LIES GET COVERED UP AND YOU CAN TELL WHEN SOMEBODY IS LYING. LISTEN TO THE PEASINTHEIRPOD INTERVIEW YOURSELF. CONVINCE DEENA TO TURN HERSELF IN, SHE CONTRIBUTED TO THE DELINQUENCY OF A MINOR AND CLAIMED SHE WANTED HER TO LOSEN UP BY GIVING HER ALCOHOL AND POT, YOU CAN LOOK AT PICTURES THAT DEENA IS IN AND SEE WHAT TYPE OF PARTIES SHE HAD AND WHAT WENT DOWN. YOU KNOW WHEN STUFF DOESN’T ADD UP, BE FORREAL. PHYLICIA IS JUST AS MUCH AS YOUR SISTER AND THE OTHERS. DO YOU REALLY TRUST YOUR LIFE IN DEENA OR KELLY’S HANDS? PISS THEM OFF AND SEE IF YOU DON’T TURN UP IN A RIVER . . . JUST SAYING . . . DO THE RIGHT THING BRYAN, TURN THEM IN, AND EVERYBODY INVOLVED, IT’S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME. I HOPE YOUR CONSCIOUS STARTS BEATING YOU DOWN AND YOU SAID YOU WANT JUSTICE EVEN IF IT WAS FAMILY, SO DO THE RIGHT THING BRO!

      TELL DEENA TO COME CLEAN AND JUSTICE WILL BE SERVED! SERIOUSLY!

    Justice for Phylicia S. Barnes. Justice for Mr. & Mrs. Mustafa

  10. arrestthosefools says:

    David Adams, your work/blogging truly is excellent work and much appreciated by many. Thank you for taking your personal time out to keep us updated.

    I was wondering if Bryan has loss a child of his very own due to these circumstances? I understand how a person may feel, reading not so happy comments about their parent but allow me to explain that when a mother/parent who has raised their child for 16 almost 17yrs, is faced with the reality that they will no longer be able to touch, laugh, cry, spend time with and shop, do nails or whatever, when faced with that reality that their child has been murdered, they will grieve, they are entitled to Grieve. At times they will be angry. They are entitled to be angry. So many different emotions like a roller coaster ride.

    Who are WE as people to tell a grieving mother, who child was murdered, what she should and should not say? That’s selfish with-in itself and it displays a LACK of understanding. Mrs. Mustafa hasn’t broken any laws by expressing her feelings.

    How could anyone come on here and disrespect a mother who loss her child from the hands of another? How could ANYONE attempt to drown out the WORDS of a mother who is seeking JUSTICE on behalf of her murdered child!!!

    Heartless people do that. Heartless people. Mrs. Mustafa was lied to and deceived from day ONE! Had she known the truth about the environment, she would NOT have allowed her daughter to visit Baltimore. Why should she have had to investigate the environment, when the right people were before her and GAVE their WORD to keep Phylicia Safe and sound. And while Phylicia visited Baltimore, certain people willing agreed to be responsible for Phylicia. This isn’t about a stolen car! It is about a human life that got taken away!

    So what about what someone has to say about what they think was going down in NC. Phylicia wasn’t murdered in NC was she? Fall back if you have any godliness in you. God don’t want you speaking that way to Mrs. Mustafa.

    Almost 17yrs Mrs. Mustafa, along with her husband made a way for Phylicia and now, certain people who have spent LESS time with Phylicia, want to silence Mrs. Mustafa? I think NOT. God not gonna let that happen. Justice for Phylicia S. Barnes

  11. arrestthosefools says:

    Even if Mrs. Mustafa had investigated to certain people standards, the people involved would have been well behaved. The apt would not have drugs in it at the time, no wild parties would have been thrown. Everything would have been hidden from her. And Mrs. Mustafa did exactly what she was suppose to do when she found out what Phylicia was either made or allowed to do (which was illegal). Smoke and Drink alcohol. There’s no telling what else they snuck and gave Phylicia.

    I don’t know WHAT some people THOUGHT Mrs. Mustafa was suppose to do; Be silent? I think not. They like when you silent. Some people cared more about getting into trouble instead of caring about Phylicia’s LIFE FIRST

    • arrestthosefools says:

      If all that smoking, drinking liquor, and extra partying and whatever else wasn’t going on, this would not have happened. Please have respect for (Mrs). Mustafa. She did nothing wrong to no-one. She tried to be okay with certain people in Baltimore. Look at what all she got in return!. She got betrayed, deceived and Phylicia got taken away. How extreme and beyond cruel. That’s really cold.

    • Lulu says:

      Exactly! I know without a shadow of a doubt Mrs. Mustafa would not have sent Phylicia up there knowing their standards. From the outside looking in, you would think a pharmacy tech, firefighter, and mrs. piggy looking siblings would be the idea siblings. But now on the outside looking in, who would have ever known?

      You’re doing right Mrs. Janice Mustafa. Be the voice for Phylicia because you have many, many, standing behind you. Look how many they have, barely none. The police aren’t telling them anything for a reason! Sometimes silence is golden, can’t wait to see them handcuffed. I say lock them all in 1 cell and throw away the keys.

      • arrestthosefools says:

        True Lulu. I remember when the sexual exploitation came to surface. The brother from Baltimore rushed to say that the allegations were false. Next thing the public knew, was that FBI obtained warrants for certain email (because of the nude pics and video) found on someone cell phone.

        That made the brother (B) from Baltimore look like a liar (or) for some reason LE withheld evidence from the male Barnes.

        One male Barnes said that he STILL didn’t understand what sexual exploitation had to do with the case. They replied to him stating, that, apparently ‘some people have NOT told the (complete) truth’.

        So, LE already knew about the pics and video and (chose) not to tell the male Barnes for a reason. I bet the oldest half sister and clan already knew about the pics and video and should have told (RB) the complete truth. If he was already looking dumb founded, his daughter (D) made him look even more dumb founded by NOT telling him the complete truth and had him saying “anything”

        There-fore, has (RB) oldest daughters told the complete truth to (RB) yet?

        Adding, Mrs. Mustafa has the right to reminisce of her daughter who was murdered by ppl that should have been protecting Phylicia. That’s a fact!! Mrs. Mustafa doesn’t have to just reminisce about what happened to her daughter Phylicia. Mrs. Mustafa carried Phylicia for probably 9 months in her belly. She has the right to think back to EVERYTHING she went through from the time Phylicia was conceived. Those are ALL of her memories and things she went through while caring for her child, while her child was in her belly, up until this point and stage.

        Noone can take her memories away or silence her voice. The scum bags silenced Phylicia and now they want to silence her mother and people should understand that people are going to stay by Mrs. Mustafa side and see this through with Mrs. Mustafa. People are NOT going to allow these scum bags to push Mrs. Mustafa around like they did with Phylicia. Amen!

        Phylicia is gone now. She can no longer defend her name. Therefore, some of these so called MEN need to stop wearing their hearts on their sleeves and suck it up! At least they are still alive to defend their name, well, trying to defend their name. What they (need) to be doing is making certain people tell the truth now. I guess the fruit don’t fall far from the tree. This investigation should have BEEN solved. Justice for Phylicia S. Barnes.

  12. Buffy The Deadbeat Daddy Slayer says:

    Bryan big head barnes you are as much of a coward as your sperm donating son of a b+tch father how dare you come on this blog to bash and then bless Mrs. Janice you know damn well your ugly sisters deena horseface and kelly fat ass played a role in Phylicia’s disappearance! Phylicia was a beautiful honor role student who was college bound and destined for greatness! She was going to bring honor and prestige to the Barnes name and make something out of herself unlike miss ed face and her jelly donut eating knocked up with a bastard child sister! They were jealous of Phylicia and those multiple visits only were used to contribute to the deliquency of a minor! Why give your baby sister with so much promise and intelligence weed? That drug kills off your brain cells! Was deena trying to dumb phylicia down to her level of dumbness? Bryan as a firefighter..lol..were u aware your ugly sisyer was living in a drug den?

    • Buffy The Deadbeat Daddy Slayer says:

      The whole family in Baltimore had to know deena’s living arrangement but turned a blind eye to it! Russell Barnes is a coward a slimeball and a creep! Bryan it will be hard for you to digest but your dad is a bum! He played a role as well and God don’t like ugly! and your sisters and father are ugly to the bone! Justice will be served so don’t be too shocked when you see them ALL in handcuffs!

      • Juju says:

        I agree! Bryan don’t be in denial, just take yourself, feelings, emotions out of the situation and detach yourself and take a good unbiased look. Looks like Deena is going down huh? YEA!

    • Dominique says:

      Thank you Buffy! Bryan don’t have anything up there in there bad, empty, hollow head. He’s supposed to be for the citizens, he’s just as bad as Deena, Russell, Kelly and the rest of the Johnson clan. He might as well jump into a burning house because he has no freaking purpose either. That ugly horeseface stank breath Deena and Fat gorilla looking Kelly and platypus looking russell. I’m personally sick of their antics. I wish they stay out the media until the media shows them in orange jumpsuits. Phylicia was destined for greatness and their hating, malicious asses cut her blossoming life short. Exactly, I was hoping she would deliver that baby in jail. She better be careful and should tell the truth because Deena might be plotting on her baby next, being that she doesn’t have any kids and risk the prospect of a jumpsuit for the remaining of her childbeaing years. How would Kelly fee to find her baby floating up the Susquehanna River. Bryan you should be scared to trust your life in the hands of Deena, you never know what that crazy, psychotic low life bitch might do. The police know what’s up, I’m sure they have already checked work schedules, phone records, police cameras, emails, everything. Don’t be surprised Bryan, then what is that hollow empty going to say? Listen the peasintheir podinterview and holla back and honestly state how you feel. Tell em why you mad son . . . Deena’s ass is going down . . .

  13. Fancy says:

    Any one who saw all the interviews and the pictures of the sisters know they have something to hide, I didn’t see not one tear shed no one breaking down not able to compose themselves in any interview or pictures and to have a repass like gathering right when Phylicia is missing, really who can eat at a time like that. Deena needs to be locked up for giving drugs to a minor WHY ISN’T SHE?! WHO IS PROTECTING HER??!! Have the sister taken a lie detector test?! Kelly couldn’t even remember what day she was over there eating cookies and watching movies. (do you think we believe that’s too?) and out of all the clothes I’m sure Phylicia brought on the trip Deena really took the time to search what was missing and give the cops a description of what she had on last? I hope Phylicia gives you all sleepless night, because she didn’t deserve to be murdered and thrown away like trash!

    • Kim says:

      Exactly! One things that strikes a nerve with me, is why in the hell she felt like she had to give her vodka and drugs to get her to loosen up? Loosen up for what? She’s a innocent child . . . that is suspicious. Could it be to lower her inhibitions so she could be taken advantage of . . . That is also a charge contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

    • Denise Tyson says:

      Yea she does need to be locked up for giving drugs to a minor. Kelly was too busy worried about getting some more scooby snacks and sitting on her fat lazy bum ass. They all need separate lie detector tests. Exactly! I hope she haunts the shit out of them.

  14. Fancy says:

    Does anyone know if Deena still loves in that apartment? and if not was all the evidence thrown away? did the police do a thorough investigation of the apartment? or did they let days go by before they realized something happened there? Shouln’t a civil charge be brought up against Deena for coercing a minor??

  15. Deena Slay says:

    This is crazy!! How can someone tell you something about some one and you print it. You don’t know if it is the truth or a lie. All I know is that it is so sad that a child is DEAD and people are blaming this bad situation on each other. Someone killed your child and your sister niether mother or sister are the blame. So stop slauther your dauther’s name and if you think she has a problem reach out to her, She is hurting like you are and for the women who printed this shame on you. How can you take advantage of a family grief to get you a story. There three side to a story Shatell= Janice and the truth and the truth is SIMONE!! SIMONE IS THE VICTIM. You said you would die for her. You had three dauthers one is gone.Share that love with the other two!!

    • Janice M. Sallis-Mustafa says:

      dear deena slay ur name sounds familiar in more ways than one, but I’m not going to waste much time on ur sicken mind that is sicker than a cancerous deteriorating bacteria. I’ve got to go now. but for ur sake keep ur chronically ill knowledge for words to urself, because the cancerous bacteria seems to be spreading rapidly to ur corroded tongue so plz try and have a decent life and seal ur lips because u don’t have a clue either as the old folks would say if you don’t know what to say just be quiet why don’t you.

    • Janice M. Sallis-Mustafa says:

      I know exactly who u r and i’m sure u’ve heard lots of slaughtering on facebook about my family from the person whom u say that i should reach out to. How about you give me some intelligent advice to how I can reach out to a person who curse, yell, scream, disrespect and out talk me during a conversation that ought to be civilized. My family was threaten by that individual and false accusations severely lashed out at me at my weakest state of mind she seems to care about those whom abuse her and hurt the ones who cares for her. Now u tell me how would u handle a person who does all of the above to you and even more. So when she’s ready for my love it will be there waiting for her, you can’t make anyone accept your love and want to be a part of that person’s life. Like the saying goes “You can lead a horse to water, but u can’t make him/her drink it.” It’s amazing how people think that they could handle another person like shit and they expect royal treatment. You only know what this individual person tells u and if u can think back years ago, I defended her when she was dealing with alot of issues from ur family and she blames me for what happens from that particular occasion as well. Again I will say to you i’m not going to force myself on reaching out to anyone who does not want to be reached by me or my family. So many times help has been delivered to her not just by me but others from my family as well, after she gets what she wants than she turns her ASS to be kissed by the very same people who assist her. You have not a clue how my heart bleeds from that person abuse, but yet as always no one ever sees their part in confrontation it’s all about that individual’s feelings to hell with how pain is shot towards someone else who truly loves her. Nothing I do is good enough for that person every gift that I’ve given she has thrown it away because it came from me. Love and Hate could never be compatible. And if you want to have a woman to woman or mother to mother discussion with me my mind is opened to whatever solution works but dont try and crutinize me for ur hearing a one sided story. Disrespect after disrespect could be detrimental to the health and sometimes one has to make a rationalize decision on is it worth it. Why should you think that I am going to subject myself to brutal cursing out and taking sides with my enemies. It’s one thing to be a fool but it’s another thing to be a DAMN fool. So if you are as interested as ur comment states than I’m sure you will be able to contact me, but if not plz don’t pour salt on a critical wound that hurts.

      • No More BS says:

        You don’t have to explain yourself to ignorant people about your situation. You have more than stepped up to the plate as a woman and said that if anyone wants your love then it’s there, it’s for them to see and the world, so hopefully they will do just that. Just pray that in God’s time it will work out. Sometimes people have issues that are so deep you can’t touch them, only go. Let Go and Let God, he is with you, you have bigger concerns at this moment. Continuing to pray for your strength.

      • Shauntel Sallis says:

        No one wants to hear you talk bad about your daughter or hear you complain about how rough it was for you to be a mother listen to yourself all you are doing is showing your true colors. Putting out your personal relationship with your eldest daughter on a public site is childish and it shows alot about ones character, this is ashame! Your daughter was the victim here take responsibility for the role you played as a mother to all your children not just the ones that look like you!’

  16. bemoregirl says:

    The entire Barnes family should be arrested. Deena russell Kelly and their mother Pat too. She knows that her daughters killed this baby. Kelly has since given birth. I say arrest her and take her away from her infant. Shes unfit. shes an accessory to murder. Lock them all up this is a terrible crime.

    • Nicole says:

      SHAUNTEL!!! You need to stop being disrespectful to your mother, she already said when you are ready to receive her love she will be ready with open arms, you have been disrespecting her all over these blogs, stop the madness and support your mom. Nobody is winning when you are against the wrong people, turn that anger towards the Barnes and help comfort, love, and support your mom, both of you would benefit from that.

      • dbrianadams says:

        Nicole I will not give Shauntel Sallis a platform to attack her Mother. All of her post will be removed or denied publication. She apparently has some issues that require professional attention. Her continuous bantor about Janice having a hand in Phylicia’s murder is sickening and highlights personal challenges that she faces.

      • Nicole says:

        Thank you dbrianadams. It really makes me upset that she does that. Thank you! Praying without ceasing!

  17. LONDON says:

    I HAVE A LITTLE SISTER THAT I JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT ALMOST TEN YEARS AGO, SHE RECENTLY MOVED BACK TO MY HOMETOWN FOUR YEARS AGO WHEN HER MOTHER PASSED AWAY. I WILL NEVER LET HER BE IN HARMS WAY AND SHE 17 NOW ABOUT TO GO TO COLLEGE. I HELP HER IN EVERY WAY I CAN AND I WILL NEVER LET HER BE IN ANY PLACE THAT WILL BE A DANGER TO HER. WE STAY IN CONSTANT CONTACT WITH EACH OTHER VIA PHONE TEXT AND VISITS, IF SHE NEEDS ME IM THERE. IF WE HAVE PLANS AND SOMETHING CHANGES WE TALK AND LET ONE ANOTHER KNOW IF SOMETHING COMES UP. AND IF I CALL HER AND CANT GET IN TOUCH WITH HER I GO AND MAKE SURE THAT SHE IS OK, I WILL NOT TRUST THE WORD OF A FRIEND, BOYFRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER TO TELL ME THAT SHE HERE WITH THEM OK LET ME SPEAK WITH HER. WAKE HER UP IF SHE IS SLEEP. AND I HAVE OTHER SISTERS IF I CANT GET HER, THEY WILL AND I LIVE IN A SMALL TOWN AND IF I LIVED IN BMORE SHE WOULD BE ON MY HIP. THERES SO MUCH HOLES IN THIS STORY ITS NOT FUNNY. AND TO THINK THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO TRUST THEM WITH YOUR CHILD PLEASE THEY ARE RUTHLESS. DEENA SHOULD JUST COME CLEAN, I BELIEVE THAT THEY WERE THERE WHEN IT HAPPEN ALL OF THEM AND THEY MAY BE TRYING TO PUT IT ALL OFF ON MJ (THE BOYFRIEND) BUT HE IS LIKE IM NOT GOING DOWN BY MYSELF THEY ALL PLAYED A ROLE IN WHAT HAPPEN TO PHYLICIA. THEY BELIEVE THEY GOT AWAY WITH IT BUT IT WILL ALL COME OUT. STAY STRONG TRUST GOD!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. Fancy says:

    Now that’s interesting, their mother Pat?? Let’s see if she defends the Barnes clan!!!

  19. Sass says:

    where was Russel Barnes during the time that she disappeared?

    • Nicole says:

      That’s a good question Nicole! I wonder where was he at also? I’d love to see a detailed billing of cell phone account around that time.

  20. Stephanie says:

    I am not a family member and I don’t know anyone personally. My cousin was killed when we were young and we knew the killer so I am just weighing in.

    The family members on both sides who are not responsible will protect vehemently those they think are innocent and attack those they think are guilty. The key word is “think”. You can’t blame them for protecting because unless they KNOW what happened, they can’t phantom being wrong. It doesn’t mean they are trying to protect per se, they may REALLY believe in their innocence or guilt.

    Separate that and look for common grounds as two families until you find out who did this. Let the killer help, the more communication from him or her the better chances of them getting caught. In the end they will slip up and Phylicia will have the justice she deserves. God Bless The Innocent

    All this going back and forth is POINTLESS!!!! Finding Phylicia’s killer(s) is what’s important!!! How has this focus been lost? This is the time for ALL family to come together and put the past behind and stop all this he say, she say! This is NOT bringing Phylicia murderer(s) to justice! There are numerous people like myself that did not know Phylicia but were touched and devastated by the senseless loss of such a wonderful, promising young woman who want her murder solved and I cannot understand how her Baltimore “family” doesn’t want the same!!! What are you hiding , who are your protecting and how can you live with yourselves?!!!! Tell the truth so that peace can prevail for all!

    • Nicole says:

      The Baltimore Family doesn’t want justice to be served because that means serving justice to them. They are involved either directly or by lying, misleading the police, aiding & abedeting, giving vodka and weed to a minor to lower he inbitions, obstruction of justice, lying, lying, did I say lying? Getting rid of evidence, hindering & delaying, conspiring, orchestrating bogus searches, giving false & misleading information, and other things. These are blogs and people are sharing their information, thoughts, and feelings. The FOCUS has not been lost, as russell says it, EVERYBODY is STAYING FOCUSED, isn’t that right jerk, I mean russell? If they speak the truth, the truth will be known and justice will be served and we see their mugshots along with the johnson class.
