Murder

Army veteran, 29, ‘used a butter knife, his TEETH and his bare hands to decapitate his mother after a fight over credit cards’


An Army veteran from Mississippi (pictured left),  has been charged with murder.

Terrelle Johnson, 29, is accused of brutally murdering and beheading his mother Sherry Johnson (pictured right), a 51-year-old high school guidance counselor and dumping her head and body in their backyard, where her remains were discovered on June 6.

Stone County Sheriff’s Capt. Ray Boggs said Terrelle had been telling his aunts and uncles, who were concerned for Sherry’s well-being after not hearing from her for several days, that she had gone one a cruise.

Deputies who were asked to check on Sherry found her mutilated body outside her home near Wiggins on June 6.

Stone County Coroner Wayne Flurry says the remains had been there several days.

Sherry had worked at Hattiesburg High School as a counselor since 2014.

During Wednesday’s court hearing, Capt Boggs described how he arrived at a brick home on Johnson Road in Stone County, Mississippi to perform the welfare check and found Terrelle sitting on the front porch, reported The Sun Herald.

When asked about his mother’s whereabouts, the 29-year-old reportedly said that she had gone somewhere with a friend, but Boggs asked if he could take a look inside the residence.

‘When I entered the bedroom, I immediately noticed blood everywhere,’ Boggs told the court.

He said there was blood spatter on the bed, the floor and even the walls, but there was no sign of Sherry.

Boggs then went into the backyard and came upon the woman’s headless body. Her head was located 15 feet away.

During a videotaped interview with investigators, Terrelle reportedly confessed to killing his mother during a heated argument over credit cards, which he said got out of hand.

The son told officials that he beat up the 51-year-old woman, choked her until she stopped breathing, then sawed off her head using a butter knife then used his bare hands and teeth to rip off her head.

The 29-year-old explained that he disposed of the remains outside so the house would not smell bad.

Johnson appeared at yesterday’s hearing dressed in an orange jumpsuit. He sat with his head down and did not speak during the proceedings, but on his way inside the courthouse he yelled out, ‘I done it’ and ‘I plead guilty.’

Are teens lacking RESPECT? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


“Conversations Of A Sistah” is back with a vengeance and ready to tackle a serious subject and conversation at hand; are teenagers lacking respect and reverence for those in authority? Where is the RESPECT that follows an elder in position?

My topic comes as a disturbing video surfaced online of a ninth grade Paterson, New Jersey student who attacked his teacher in the classroom for confiscating his cell phone during class. The attack which was captured on video shown above, has gone viral on Facebook and youtube and shows the student slamming his 62 year old teacher to the floor in an effort to retrieve his cell phone back. The 23-second video shows the 16-year-old with his arms wrapped around the teacher, knocking him into an empty desk.

The district filed a complaint against the student earlier this week, a spokes­woman said, and Paterson police said they arrested him at his home on Friday.

He said the teacher apparently confiscated the phone — which belonged to the assailant — from another student. The principal said students are allowed to use cellphones in class for academic purposes, but staff may take the devices and return them at the end of the day if students use them for other reasons.

Many questions have been raised since this incident such as; who are the boys parents? Why is a lack of disrespect evident in the teens behavior? And should the parents be held accountable?

Join me tonight at 6:30 p.m. on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via Blog Talk Radio.com for this much needed discussion.
