This petition made change with 4,507 supporters!
This horrifying story began when Eric Boyd borrowed his cousin, Nicole Mathis’ car, picked up his friends LeMaricus Davidson and Letalvis Cobbins from 2316 Chipman Street. Meanwhile, on the other side of town, Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom had plans to hang out with friends for dinner and a movie. As they shared a kiss, in the parking lot of a friend’s home in the Washington Ridge Apartments, their evening was abruptly interrupted by LeMaricus Davidson and Eric Boyd pointing guns in their faces.
LeMaricus Davidson and Eric Boyd forced their way into Channon’s vehicle, Carjacking and Kidnapping the couple for what turned into a weekend of pure evil. Letalvis Cobbins, the half-brother of LeMaricus Davidson, followed Channon’s SUV in the car that Eric Boyd supplied for these crimes, back to the Chipman Street house. Channon Christian was eventually tied up, raped, tortured, had bleach poured down her mouth to erase DNA evidence, a plastic bag wrapped around her head and stuffed into a kitchen trash can where she died of suffocation.
Statements made by at least three of the killers involved in these crimes not only place Eric Boyd as an accomplice to the carjacking of the couple but also a vital part of the kidnapping, torture and murder of Christopher Newsom. Christopher Newsom was gagged, his hands were tied and he was raped, tortured, shot three times (Including once execution style) thrown onto train tracks and set on fire.
Eric Boyd only received a Two Count 18-year sentence for being an accessory after the fact to the murders. Without this indictment, Eric Boyd will be set free to go home from Federal Prison in a couple of years, when he should be in prison for Life. However, directly because of him, Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom will never see home again. We are less than two months away from the 10 year anniversary of these heinous murders and would greatly appreciate you signing this petition.
