Alyssa Barrett, 17, has been charged with murder in connection with the stabbing death of her mother, DeCarol Deloney-Cain, 54, a United Airlines flight attendant. Deloney-Cain’s body was found inside the trunk of her car in Gary, Indiana. She was reported missing when she failed to show up for work. Her decomposing body was found, limbs bound with red duct tape, on July 7, but wasn’t identified until July 9 through a serial number in her breast implants.
Earlier, Barrett’s boyfriend, Damarius Rashard Wren, who also goes by the name Damarius McGriggs, 18, was charged after Indiana police found a GPS system pinpointing where DeCarol Deloney-Cain’s body was dumped.
Deloney-Cain, a mother of three, suffered multiple stab wounds and blunt force trauma to the head. One of her children, who remains unidentified, says she witnessed Wren attack her mother on July 3, cover her head with a pillowcase and banged her head against the staircase. She also states Wren called two of his friends who came to the house to help him carry the body out. The unnamed teen was forced at gunpoint to ride with them to dump her mom’s lifeless body and withdraw cash from her account, fearing for her life.
