This Friday I will be taking a trip, back to the state some of my ancestors came from. Unlike past trips, this one is filled with sorrow not joy. For this trip is to bury one of our own. A beautiful woman in every sense of the word and her handsome promising son who were snatched from us all in a violent paroxysm of senseless depraved violence.
Jean Claire Smith, nee Maloney, and her eldest son, James Marshall Smith, were murdered in cold blood inside their home in Dale City, Virginia, on Friday, December 19th.
The details of the murder have been spelled out in news articles in local press, the Washington Post, and the Washington Times.
Three persons are now under arrest in connection with the murder.
Xavier Pinckney, 17, of Dale City was the perpetrator.
Jacqueline Munoz, 22, of Dale City for accessory to a felony after the fact.
Jonathon Jake Jackson, 19 of Dale City for accessory to a felony after the fact.
Whatever sentence Xavier Pinckney gets for his actions, and capital punishment is no longer an option since the 2004 Supreme Court ruling, it will be less than what he deserves. A cold blooded psychopath.
