Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom set out on a date Saturday to a restaurant and to visit a friend. Christopher ended up dead and his body dumped and burned. Channon was kidnapped, raped for several days and then murdered. Her body was found in the home of one of the suspects. All four suspects are black and the victims are white. Despite the brutality involved, the article avoids describing the crime as being motivated by hate but simply “being in the wrong place at the wrong time.” Article and videos here. The second video goes further, asking “Did their path along Washington Pike lead them into danger,” implying the victims are to blame.
Suspects Eric Boyd, George Thomas, Lemaricus Davidson and Letalvis Cobbins:
