According to reports, 13-year-old Jericho W., is accused of killing two brothers and escaped Juvenile court Tuesday (Nov. 6th).
Jericho’s mother, Nikki Jacobs, turned the 13-year-old in following his escape. According to reports, Jericho reportedly, “fled to his grandmother’s former home, which is abandoned. He remained there overnight and went to his uncle’s home the following day. His uncle, Wayne Lambert, said he provided the teen with a meal and a shower before calling authorities.”
When the young boy escaped, he was wearing a white T-shirt, beige pants, he was shoeless and wearing leg restraints.
The boy’s uncle, who he calls “daddy” speaks on his nephew, he says he isn’t a “very bad kid.”
“I just thank God that he came home to me and I was the one that could put my hands on him before the officials did or anybody else would hurt this child, because he’s not a very bad kid,” Lambert said. “He’s a respectful child.”
“When I seen him, I said, ‘Baby, you know what we got to do.’ He said, ‘Daddy, I don’t want to go back.’ I said, ‘I know you don’t, baby, and daddy don’t want to take you back, but you’re going to have to go.’ I said, ‘Do you understand me?’ He said, ‘Yes, sir,’” Lambert recalled.
“He said ‘Daddy, all I want you to do is feed me and let me take a shower,’ and that’s what I did for him,” he added.
