Shrine for a murdered child, Keyontae Osbia Moore

This very sad shrine, with numerous dolls, is in memory of a toddler who was murdered recently in Southeast Washington DC.

This shrine really got to me... May there be peace in the universe, and in all hearts.

From a DC Police report: On Monday, March 5, 2012, units from the Seventh District were dispatched to United Medical Center. Upon arrival it was discovered that a 20-month-old child had been transported there from the 3000 block of 30th Street SE, Washington DC. The child, 20-month-old Keyontae Osbia Moore, was in extremely critical condition and was immediately transported to Children’s Hospital where he was subsequently pronounced dead. On Wednesday, March 7, 2012, an autopsy was completed by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. The manner of death has been ruled a homicide and the cause of death has been ruled blunt impact trauma. On Monday, March 12, 2012, at approximately 11:15 am, members from the Special Victim’s Unit arrested Jonathan T. Fullard, 38, and charged him with First Degree Felony Murder.

More information on this tragedy is posted on HomicideWatch.

The broken doll splayed on the ground... beyond words to tell.
