Report: Three White Men Who Killed And Dismembered Two Black Men Will Not Be Charged With A Hate Crime

This is going to be a rough one. Just a warning.

A white teen and three others have been charged in connection with the murder and removal of two Black men. 

On April 14th, Alize Ramon Smith and Jarron Keonte Moreland, both 21, were reported missing after a shooting in the parking lot of a Crest Foods in Moore, Oklahoma, KOCO says.

Fourteen days later, Moore police confirmed the dismembered bodies of Smith and Moreland were discovered in a pond.

Soon after, officers arrested 16-year-old Brett Boettler, who was charged with first-degree murder, second-degree murder, unlawful removal of a dead body, desecration of a human corpse and possessing a firearm after delinquent adjudication.

His older brother 22-year-old Kevin Garcia-Boettler was also charged with accessory after the fact and unlawful removal of a dead body. 

Oh and Boettler's mother, 40-year-old Crystal Rachelle Boettler and her boyfriend, 43-year-old Johnny Shane Barker, were both charged with accessory after the fact.

What a family. Yikes.

Barker was also charged with unlawful removal of a body and desecration of a human corpse.

Court documents reveal that detectives were able to connect Boettler to the crime, after finding the White Chrysler Town and Country van (which was spotted at shooting) parked at his home. 

Upon examining the vehicle, detectives discovered "cleaning products and a power washer around the vehicle," "dried blood spatter on the ceiling of the van" and "a bucket of water with a chainsaw bar inside and soaking in the water along with several jigsaw blades”.

Yeah, that is pretty suspect. Eek.

Police believe the brothers fled the scene with the bodies and drove to their mother's house, where her boyfriend allegedly helped them remove the bodies, dismember them, attach bricks to the bodies with chains and dumped them in a pond. 

No words. Disgusting.

Kevin admitted to disposing of the bodies and Barker confessed that he helped with cleaning the van.

Rest in peace, Alize Ramon Smith and Jarron Keonte Moreland. 

Sending love and condolences to their loved ones. Such an unimaginable tragedy. We sincerely hope that their families are able to find peace and justice. And we hope the two killers get what they deserve in prison.
