Teen Murders Grandmother Following Argument Over Truancy
Chicago Woman Murdered By Grandson
A 15-year-old Chicago teen is in police custody after authorities say he murdered his grandmother after she scolded him for skipping school.
Keshawn Perkins, 15, assaulted his grandmother with a lamp and stabbed her in the head, neck and body with a kitchen knife, according to authorities. Then, in an attempt to cover his tracks, police say he wrapped the body in a sheet and placed it in a sewer trap near her home.
Authorities were alerted after neighbors noticed the blood stained teen dragging a large object through the backyard. Perkins then fled, but not before swiping his deceased granny's purse.
He was apprehended a short time later and admitted the heinous act to authorities saying murdered his flesh and blood because she got on him for skipping school.
