The headline pretty much says it all. The Orleans Parish Coroner said on Sunday that the boy who most everyone believes is Ja’Shawn Powell, had his throat slashed. The 2-year-old is believed to have been killed by his father Danny Platt. Platt is believed to have killed Ja’Shawn because he was court ordered to pay Ja’Shawn’s mother $4000 in back child support.
Check out how callous Platt was about the whole thing when he was trying to establish his alibi…
She said Platt never picked up the child before, but suddenly Friday evening, around 8:30 p.m., he called, saying he wanted Ja Shawn to spend the weekend with him.
Powell has not seen Ja Shawn since, saying she had to give the child to the father because he had visitation rights to see Ja Shawn.
“Then he called me back at 11 p.m.,” she said. “And he was like,‘Your son was kidnapped, bye.’ He didn’t even say anything after.”
“I called him back and said, ‘How do you let a two-year-old get kidnapped? What was you doing that he got kidnapped?’” she said. “He said, ‘Why you blaming this on me? Why you blaming this on me? I ain’t got time for this, bye.’”
Platt also deleted calls from his cell phone to hide the calls he made to Ja’ Shawn’s mother.
But what else do you expect from a coward like this?
