Teens Held Without Bond in Girl's Slaying
Carthage Tight security surrounds three teens charged with killing a 12-year-old girl in her Moore County home last week.
Van Roger Smith Jr., 16, Sherrod Nicholas Harrison, 19, and Michael Graham Currie, 18, all of Cameron, have been charged with first-degree murder and breaking and entering in the death of Emily Elizabeth Haddock. Emily was dead Friday in her home on Marks Road outside of Vass, authorities said.
She had stayed home from school with strep throat and was alone when someone broke into the house and, surprised to find someone inside, shot her several times with a .22-caliber handgun, authorities said. Two of the teens lived on Marks Road about six miles from the Haddock home.
Harnett County authorities located a stolen .22-caliber handgun on Monday in a car with stolen plates in the Carolina Hills area of the county. The gun had been stolen last Thursday from a home, and authorities said it might be the weapon used in the slaying. Perry Ross Schiro, 19, of Cameron, was charged with burglary, larceny and possession of stolen property in connection with the gun.
One of the three teens charged in the slaying also is considered a "person of interest" in an attempted break-in last Friday about a mile from the Haddock home, authorities said. The three teens made their first court appearance Tuesday morning and were appointed attorneys.
A bond hearing is scheduled for Wednesday in District Court, but authorities have declined to disclose the time of the hearing for security reason. The teens were being held without bond Tuesday in the Moore County Detention Center.

Here is a picture of the victims and perps:
disguesting, Death penalty that’s the only kind of treatment scum like that deserve. When are we going to start protecting ourselves?
Are these incidents becoming more common? Drudge has another clearly racial teen beating linked on his page today. Is the racial climate deteriorating in the USA? If so, why? Times are pretty good for jobs. All races are featured prominently in the media, lots of rich black role models out there. Why the hate? Even inter-racial marraige is a common every-day occurance. I honestly think most white do not harbor hatred of blacks in their hearts at this point, either.
hang the damn gang banger scum.
I don't think so. Reporting is getting better.
I agree but this won’t last long
it doesn’t matter how good minorities have it, they will always find excuses to hate..it’s easier to be a victim than to actually have to work at something.
It’s not just a matter of ordinary racism, if you ask me. It’s a matter of race baiting.
The politicians, the educators, and the welfare queens have been telling blacks for the past 40 years that the white racists are oppressing them, and at least some of them have probably learned that lesson.
When you demonize white for 40 years for political purposes, who can be surprised if black youths start taking it seriously?
What started out with considerable nobility in Selma, Alabama, has been going sour ever since LBJ decided to take advantage of the movement for his own political purposes. When young people should be learning that all men are created equal ina the sight of God, instead they are learning that one race is guilty and the other is entitled. This is not a healthy thing to teach people.
They look like they share a brain....
Just one...between them...but I'm being generous....
I could give a crap what freakin’ color the perps are. Kill Them!
yeah, they need to get out on bail...and maybe old, demented rock stars can send a few $50 bills to them...
IMO these perps deserve the death penalty. That being said, I do not think the evidence points to this being a killing based on race. No, it was a murder that was deemed necessary to cover up a burglery.
They didn’t want to face the penalty for burglery, so they sentenced the girl to death.
For that they should pay the ultimate price.
Don’t give me the “they were minors” defense. They were old enough to know they wouldn’t want to die. They knew better.
Put them on trial. Convict them. Excute them.
Just the expressions on their faces make me want to kick their teeth in.
Can't execute the 16 year old but the other two could get it - they were 18 and 19.
Your scenario sounds believable, but if the girl had been a 12 year old black girl would they have still killed her? I suspect that hatred of whites contributed to the utter contempt they showed for the life of this poor girl.
Am I missing something here? I see nothing to indicate that the thugs killed the girl because of race. Why insert that element?
The way I’ve always read it (thanks MSM) that it’s a hate crime when it’s white on black but not when it’s black on white ... then the race card is played ..... re: Jena6 ....
