For those of you who listen to the podcast, we talked about this case with the folks from Saving Our Children on our show "Our Kids Go Missing Too!". We also did a post called "Have you seen these children?". Deidre from the blog Black and Missing followed up on the case and had been in contact with the mother. Well they were found dead. Their father killed all three children before killing himself:
Investigators initially thought Eddie Harrington had left Georgia for Indiana with his 23-month-old twin daughters Agena and Aliyah Battle and his 3-year-old son Cedric soon after they were reported missing.
Harrington was the children's biological father, Emmett said. He did not know why the man took them. Their mother, Agena Battle, discovered them gone when she got home early March 5.
Battle called police because Harrington had left a note on the bedroom dresser saying he was depressed and didn't want to live and that he planned to kill himself and the youngsters, the FBI said. Harrington's father in Indianapolis got a similar letter. Atlanta Journal Constitution.
The mother appeared on Two Peas in a Pod podcast two weeks ago. Our thoughts and our prayers go out to the family. One in three children that go missing in this country are African American. Half of the people murdered in this country are Black and 94% of them are murdered by other African Americans.
