Damari Carter, 4, was beaten to death by his mom’s boyfriend in December and dumped in a heap of trash, police in Philadelphia said.

A tragic and heart-wrenching discovery was made in Philadelphia, where a duffel bag containing the decomposed body of 4-year-old Damari Carter was found among a pile of trash in an alley. Damari had gone missing the year prior, and his family had been desperately searching for him since then. The identification of his remains has brought a wave of shock and grief to his loved ones.

Damari's mother, Dominique Bailey, and her boyfriend, Kevin Spencer, are now facing charges that include murder and abuse of a corpse in connection with the young boy's death. The details of the case are deeply disturbing, with reports indicating that Damari was beaten to death while his mother allegedly watched. The extent of the abuse is horrifying, with Damari sustaining injuries severe enough to cause loss of consciousness, blackened eyes, and a swollen forehead.

According to reports, Dominique Bailey confessed that on the day of Damari's death, she and Spencer had left the apartment to buy Black & Mild Cigars, leaving the unconscious child at home. Upon their return, they discovered Damari unresponsive. It is alleged that Spencer then disposed of the boy's body in a trash heap after the fatal beating.

The grief and disbelief felt by Damari's family are palpable, with his aunt Nakia Bailey expressing the devastation they are experiencing. She grapples with the senseless loss of Damari's innocence and the painful realization that she will never see him grow up. The community is left to contemplate the senselessness of such a tragedy and the importance of protecting and safeguarding the vulnerable among us.

As we reflect on this harrowing story, let us offer our collective sympathy and support to the Carter family during this incomprehensibly difficult time. May Damari's memory be cherished and may his story serve as a somber reminder of the preciousness of every life and the need for vigilance in ensuring the safety and well-being of all children.
