20-year-old man kills and burns 14-year-old girl because he thought she was pregnant

Shaniesha Forbes,14, developed a relationship with a man who she should have never had contact with. After meeting 20 year-old Christian Ferdinand on Facebook, Forbes soon began seeing him at different places in Brooklyn. The two eventually started a sexual relationship.

But things went downhill when Forbes revealed that she was pregnant while visiting him at his apartment. The two got into an argument and Ferdinand attacked Forbes. He eventually smothered her to death.

After the murder, Ferdinand took Forbes’ naked body to Gerritsen Beach. He then burned her remains and fled to his family’s home in Maine. Her body was discovered on Jan. 6 and police recently made an arrest.

Forbes’ mother never knew that her child was dating a 20 year-old man and doesn’t recall seeing him before his arrest.

This incident serves as a reminder on how important it is to monitor your child’s activities online and how they use their cell phones.

Ferdinand is carved with second degree murder.

As a person who has always been in relationships with older men from the age of fifteen, and turned out pretty responsible, I would not blame the parents fully.
We always don't see what our children are doing either, even if you are one with a watchful eye.
Most children have done something to defy their parents in one way or another, unless you have been imprisoned in your home.

We may not be aware that she lied about her age (being that you are to be 18 or over when on facebook).

All girls are also not looking for a father figure when dating either. A person could just be an interesting person.

Nonetheless, no one deserves such an event to happen to them...

This 20 yrs.old took advantage of a young soul. I do  not care if she was fast! He is suppose to be chasing girl his age. I do not like to hear that girls pretend to be older because as a woman plenty of young duffy teen try to pick me up and after listening to their wack ass comments, no job, no apartment you figure out they are a loser. He needs to pay for his wrongdoing. So call men ( yeah right) need to stop using girls body for their own enjoyment ( of course this is a lot to ask). For once I would like for them to think how they would feel to be use and abuse and mistreated just to say they took someone virginity away SMH

@ Shakila Charles !!! Nice point !!!!

@ Donna excellent I think all of us as parents can learn from each other even if we don't see the point of each other exactly!!!!

@Sharon true kids are kids and will find a way no matter what !!! Like I tell mine all the time I was a child once

@ Mr Brooklyn I don't think some of us are blaming her for what happen to her it is clearly on that pervert sick ECT, I think what a lot of us including myself are trying to say is that this little empress maybe would be alive if we can find an answer for the curiosity of sex at an early age cause as for myself It may not have been the sex she was after but just not to be alone,and many young adults confuse the two S*** I know I did!!!!! I am pretty sure the mother did the best she could an may she find peace with this !!!!! Blessings

Please parents, stay vigilant, pay attention to the previous comments, and monitor your children.  It is sad this young girl had to die naked, and her body left alone in the cold....My condolences go out to her family and all the people who loved her. May She Rest In Peace!!!

@incognito I have to say I absolutely disagree with you a child's name has nothing to do with a pedophile preying on them because it is little white girls who also get kidnapped raped and murdered with names like Becky and Amy now I do think a child name has an affect on the response that the media gives to that situation because a Becky or a Amy will get an amber alert put out much quicker than a shakeisha or whatever as for senseless crimes like this I blame the media if our children didn't start seeing more and more sex every where like TV schools billboards.....etc our children wouldn't be so curious to see what it's like it also has nothing to do with a parents IQ the most smartest parents sometimes have the most corrupt kids and a lot of dumb parents manage to raise some well rounded children at times so that's why I say this has a lot more to do with the media in my eyes they are selling sex left and right and our young ones unfortunately are going to want to be curious and see what all the hooplah is about but I do believe with everything that's going on today parents really should be monitoring their kids activity more closely it's just way to much idle time for them to become mischievous

These things happen! just because a girl has sex does not make her bad! contrary, kids having sex at an early age, beams then are that nieve, to trustin that nothing can go wrong. we are human, and as my grandfather would say. That feeling of heat comes to us all. Some kids are less trustworthy then others. I can tell you at that age my parents already talked to me about ex pregnancy, and being vulnerable. I did not trust especially older men at your teans a 3, 5 year difference is so much. And many men like to take younger girls because they are innocent enough to trust so willingly, and they are easily molded into what you want them to accept if they concede to trusting that man, My grandfather told me some older men would even cut a condom to purposely inpregnate a teenage girl. And lets face it when a teenage girl is prenate, parents, can be unforgiving, and brutal and disown them. Those men know that and prey on that opportunity when a young girl has no one to turn.

Just have to make your girls aware and smart at an early age!!

Just a quick observation, in light of another article on "naming" kids. This comment is not blaming the little girl at all, but when parents give their girls names like "Shaneisha", Lakeshia, Taraneshia, etc, it really makes them MORE vulnerable to perps who would see them as having absentee parents.

Put it this way, (all else being equal) - a perp would more likely believe that the girl's pops is hardly involved in her life, and her mom has a low IQ. Put those two together, and a perp sees an opportunity to manipulate young girls vulnerable to smooth operators.  Folks may think I'm talking outta my "rear end", but how do you think Pimps operate.  They pick on young girls they believe have absentee and clueless parents. They definitely don't want to mess around with a little girl who's mom or dad has an IQ like Morpheus and an attitude like Maximus.  They know a parent like that would destroy anyone that got close to their kid.

Again, my comment isn't about the little girl, but more so a broader criticism of how parents poor decisions, often foolishly imperil the lives of their kids. Now are there girls name Monique or Michelle out there misbehaving, and have parents as dumb as bricks? Of course, but chances are, the perp won't suspect it immediately unless he personally approached the girl, he was told about her, or she posted stupid photos and comments online.

So parents, think about things YOU do that make your child's life more challenging.  You can name her Lafrikqua, but you also need to give her some commonsense, and a non-mischievous lifestyle.

PS - the comment "all else being equal", above means absent of any other information... That's why i also talked about names like Monique or Michelle...
