The Wrong Kind Of Mother’s Love: 49 Year Old Woman Charged In Girl’s Killing

In Baltimore children are exposed to violent culture on a regular basis, either in schools or within their homes by relatives harboring weapons in which many of these kids have access to. Back in May of this year a tragic story made headlines as 13-year-old Monae Turnage came up missing. The school loving kid had left her East Baltimore home to go roller skating with friends, but that trip never occurred, and the child ended up dead. Monae was in the home of two male friends who accidentally killed the girl while playing with a loaded rifle. In the aftermath of her slaying the child’s family began looking for her, and her lifeless body was discovered discarded under a heap of trash in a yard of an abandoned row-house, by her 16-year-old brother. When cops initially questioned the 13 & 12-year-old boys Monae had visited, they allegedly told police Monae had left the home of one of the boys. Further investigation into the child’s murder revealed that Monae had accidentally been shot in the chest while the youth were playing with a rifle. The child’s body was then carried out of the home where her killing occurred and place in a yard behind the home, covered with building supplies, and other debris. The shocking details came to surface when one of the youth broke down and began crying while undergoing questioning by police investigators. Another twist surfaced in the case, after the alleged murder weapon was discovered in the personal vehicle of a veteran Baltimore City Police Officer. The cop who was engaged to a relative of one of the youth involved in the child’s killing, was placed on suspension pending the outcome of a criminal investigation by City Police Internal Affairs Division. The news about the possible culpability of a police officer in the teen’s killing prompted Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake to condemn the officer, calling his alleged actions “despicable”. Months later Baltimore Police IAD declined to charge the officer in connection with the Turnage teen’s killing. Reports later surfaced that the mother of one of the youth involved in Monae’s killing was under police investigation for some role in the child’s killing. Eventually the City Prosecutor’s Office revealed that an arrest warrant had been issued for Veronica Alford (49) for allegedly assisting her son and another youth in carrying the Turnage teen’s body out of her home and placing her in the yard of a neighboring home while the child was still alive. Authorities also say that Alford hid the weapon suspected to have been used in killing the girl inside the Police Officer’s personal vehicle. Upon the announcement of pending charges for her suspected role in the case, Alford turned herself in to city police, and is now being held at the Baltimore City Intake facility on a $500.000 bond.  Some within the public have expressed concerned that charges were dropped against the officer, citing the probability that he had knowledge of the weapon in his vehicle, and may have attempted to cover for the youth responsible for killing the girl. Additionally, an older brother of one of the boys was charged with Child Endangerment & A Convicted Felon In Possession of A firearm. If charges against Alford stick, her role in the death of another teen who was a  friend of her son will further embody how violence is not only cultivated within city youth by their parents & family,  but seemingly simply a way of life for many living in the City of Baltimore. The fact that an adult’s judgement failed all of these kids miserably and allowed the child to be placed in an alley to die is just unconscionable. Much of the criminal activity across the city is predicated on the belief by some that they can easily get away with it. When our children hit a rough patch in life, it’s the inherited obligation of parents to give advice & direction hopefully with the intention to aid our kids in not repeating such mistakes again, and assisting in their overall development into productive members of society. When Monae’s body was placed in that alley she was still alive, and I can’t help but think how Alford would feel had that been her son. A simple call for help may have saved the child’s life. It seems in Baltimore the mentality is that another families tragedy isn’t my problem. Then of course, if the youth had never had access to the weapon perhaps this sad story may have never occurred. Sometimes a mother’s love can be applied improperly just like in this case. In Baltimore the argument could be made that violent youth offenders are often enabled by their parents in the name of a Mother’s Love for their child. A sad commentary indeed!

 

Monae Turnage (13) was accidentally killed by 2 male friends who were playing with a rifle. The boys and an adult woman carried the child outside of the home and hid her under trash while she was still alive in a neighboring yard.

    I have been given a Dell computer from my sister. However, her former husband set up his account on this computer (says he cannot remember the password), making himself the only administrator. Now, I cannot add any programs ( like iTunes), nor can I delete anything. How can I clear his passwords from this computer, and make myself the administrator? I am afraid that I shall have to delete everything, then begin again (ugh!) That would mean buying new programs, installing them and so on. Any ideas?.
