Gunpowder residue on hands- Brunswick baby parents

On March 30, 2013 I posted an article about the crime mentioned above on the blog (baby shooting in Brunswick). Several of you were quick to discredit the article and label the relative as damaged goods. Just as I thought, the mother is involved in the incident. We are quick to condemn people because of the way they look or past affiliations.


New evidence shows that the parents of a murdered baby in Glynn County had gunpowder residue on their hands after the shooting.

Two teens have been charged with shooting the baby in the face while the mother, Sherry West, pushed the baby down the street in a stroller.

West says the suspects, De'Marquise Elkins and Dominique Lang, shot her and the baby during a botched robbery.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation collected the gunpowder evidence. Defense attorneys now want prosecutors to hand over everything that the GBI collected on the parents.

West says the residue got on her hands while struggling for the gun. Her husband says he was shopping when the shooting happened.

The GBI says the residue could also come from an industrial source.

It doesn't say she was involved. It raised a possibility. As the article stated the mother could have gotten residue on her hands while struggling with the shooter. The husband could have gotten it on his hands through a secondary source. I am sure the police verified the husband's whereabouts with receipts he got while shopping (most are time and date stamped.)

You can find gunpowder residue on my hands most any day of the week but that does not mean I fired a gun.
