I guess there is no such thing as a black folks or white folks crime anymore, LOL. I would have rather this "man" be a deadbeat and not in their lives instead of BURNING them...WTF??
KHOU.COM REPOST - HOUSTON—A Pasadena dad was charged Monday with two counts of capital murder in the deaths of his two young children.
Randy Sylvester is being held without bond in the Harris County Jail.
The bodies of Sylvester’s kids, Randy Jr., 7, and Denim, 3, were found burned in a wooded area in southeast Houston late Friday night.
This weekend, hundreds of people gathered on a small hillside to say goodbye to the children. As tears streamed down their faces, those who came to the site where the siblings’ bodies had been dumped were left to wonder – why?
“They’re just … They’re children. The little girl’s the same age as my daughter, and it’s just heartbreaking when something so horrible happens to such innocent children,” said mourner Alicia Burns. “It’s just awful.”
Texas Equusearch placed two crosses in the ground near where the bodies were found. One cross is blue, and the other is pink.
Equusearch founder Tim Miller also presented community activist Quanell X with a plaque to thank him for his efforts in finding the kids. It was Quanell X who Randy Sylvester Sr. took to the gruesome scene where he allegedly dumped the bodies of his children.
Rarely at a loss for words, Quanell X’s attempts to talk to those gathered Sunday were halted by his own tears. He has said that this case was like “diving into the depths of hell.”
“I’m angry as hell today,” was about all he could muster to tell the congregation.
The children’s mother tried to thank the crowd for their support as well. However, she collapsed with emotion and was taken to a hospital.
Those gathered could feel her sorrow.
“I prayed that the outcome would be happy, but this is something that is not forgivable,” said mourner Belinda Johnican.
Randy Jr. and Denim were the subject of a high-profile, six-day search since they went missing on Father’s Day.
Pasadena police spokesman Capt. Bud Corbett confirmed what 11 News first reported, that the bodies of the two children had been burned.
Corbett said Randy Jr.’s body was stuffed in a wooden trunk while Denim was stuffed into a suitcase. As it turns out, the area where the bodies were dumped was near a small pond. Video from Air 11 clearly showed charred ground where the bodies were recovered near the water’s edge.
A cause of death would have to be determined by the medical examiner, said Corbett.
Just hours before the gruesome discovery, police had begun draining a retention pond near the apartment complex where the children lived. The location where the bodies were found is about 7 miles to the north of the pond.
Quanell X, who had been talking to Sylvester two days prior to the discovery, was able to get the father to finally lead authorities to the wooded area that sits a few yards away from a set of railroad tracks. As police and FBI investigators collected evidence in the wooded area, Quanell X could be seen talking to Sylvester in the dark of the night.
Before that, Sylvester kept pointing authorities to some ponds closer to the apartment complex where the kids lived.
An emotional Quanell X called Sylvester “cold-blooded” and said that the two days he was with the suspect left him disturbed. The community activist said that despite pleas to Sylvester to tell police where the bodies where, the kids’ father insisted that Quanell X see the bodies for himself.
Quanell X also described one of Sylvester’s Pasadena apartments as a “dog house” filled with porn. He said it was filthy and was used as a place for Sylvester to do drugs. Quanell X described the apartment as a sort of playpen that Sylvester kept separate from the one he lived in.
It was after that visit that, “I knew that brother wasn’t innocent,” Quanell X said.
