Alexis Kane - a teen girl murdered in Kansas City, Missouri

Alexis Kane
Alexis Kane, age 14, died on January 11, 2015, at a water park in Kansas City, Missouri.

She had been brutally beaten and shot numerous times.

Friends stated that Alexis had met a male teen, 17 year old Isaac Carter, on the Internet and agreed to meet him at a convenience store. He showed up with two buddies. Friends went with her for the initial meeting and advised her not to get into a car with him and his friends. Alexis went anyway. Her friends followed her in their own car but lost her and texted her to turn on her cellphone's location services.

The three males she met took her to an apartment and then to a water park where her murder took place.

Three males have been charged with first degree murder - CeAntonyo Kennedy, age 17; Dominic McDaniel, age 18; and Isaac Carter, age 17.

There is no known motive for this unspeakable crime against a 14 year old girl. It has been suggested that perhaps this murder was some sort of gang initiation but that is only speculation. It makes no sense whatsoever. No one kills someone who is 14 years old and who you just met a couple of hours ago unless you are a complete psychopath.

The three young men who were arrested showed no remorse while in court. In fact one of them smiled at the mother of Alexis.

No parent can reasonably be expected to totally control their teenaged kid's internet activities in today's world. If kids don't get online at home because they are monitored by their parents, they will do so at a friend's home or at school or at a library or on a mobile device or somehow.

Schools should be conducting awareness courses for teenagers about the entire Internet experience. Teenagers have to learn to make smart decisions about their own internet activity. They particularly have to learn to make smart decisions about the people they connect with online.

To any teenager who is reading this: The Internet is full of trolls, misfits, sexual
Jesus, pray for Alexis and
for all who have lost her
predators, sociopaths and psychopaths. Everybody isn't your buddy and your BFF. Just because they are on Facebook doesn't mean that they are sane. Beware of strangers who are rushing to be your friend. Don't agree to meet "new found internet friends" alone and do not go to their homes or to a secluded location with them. Do not get into vehicles with them.

Alexis was an 8th grade student at Smith-Hale Middle School in Kansas City. School officials describe her as a great kid who was into peace, justice and was against violence in every form.

Alexis' loved ones are devastated over her senseless and tragic death. They describe her as a sweet girl who loved her family. She will be forever mourned.

Alexis is survived by many loving friends and family members including her mother.

Pray for justice for Alexis.

God save us from the Lost Ones who bring death to strangers. Amen.

Pray that Alexis is in heaven. Pray that she is at peace and is with God. Amen.
