There was a grim discovery yesterday April 22, in Maryland. Two bodies both African American were found floating in the Susquehanna river. Both bodies were found without clothing and only about 3 miles apart.
One of the bodies was that of 16 year old high honor student Phylicia Barnes. Her body surfaced at 7am and was identified by dental records by the medical examiner late Thursday night. The bodies seem to have the same amount of decomposition so one could conclude that the bodies must be related.
How does a 16 year old girl go to visit her sister in another state and simply vanish? What gets me is that the older sister let her 16 year old sister drink alcohol and smoke weed. The older sister had about 20 different men going in and out of her apartment while her little sister was visiting and did not report her sister missing until the next day.
I think the sister is to blame and knows more than what she is telling authorities, why else would she not report her little sister missing?
The other body that was revered was that of a 6'4" 240 lb man, I am certain once identified this man will be able to be tied to her sister in some way. I only hope now that the parents of Phylicia Barnes has been found that they can have some closure.
If you have any info please call the Baltimore Police Department at 443-984-7385
