A 23-year-old mother allegedly told Montgomery County police that she starved her 15-month-old daughter for weeks and then disposed of her body in a dumpster of the Silver Spring apartment complex where they live.
Kiearra Tolson, of November Circle, is now charged with first-degree murder.
The child’s body has not been recovered, but police say they first started investigating on Wednesday, July 8, when Tolson’s acquaintance called them to report that Tolson told her that she had killed the child. Shortly afterwards, officers took Tolson into custody.
Investigators say she told them that she had starved her daughter, Blair Niles, for approximately three-and-a-half weeks and, after the child finally and horrifically died, she placed the body in a pillowcase and trash bags and dumped her. On June 17, she allegedly discarded the child’s body in a dumpster located on the grounds of the apartment complex.
During a search of Tolson’s apartment, investigators say they found evidence corroborating her account. The child’s father was also interviewed and told police that he last saw his daughter on April 17 and has not had any contact with Tolson since then.
Tolson is due in court Thursday afternoon.
Anyone with information about this homicide is asked to call the Major Crimes Division at 240-773-5070.
And we have to ask… where is Black Lives Matter on this one? This should be good for at least 3 torn down statues and one huge celebrity studded funeral with Obama and Oprah delivering more hate against President and the country. No?
Oh wait no… a white person didn’t do it.
