Syracuse, N.Y. (The Weekly Vice) - Marcell Washington, a 25-year-old Syracuse man has been jailed after he admitted to drowned his 3-year-old son in a bath tub for no apparent reason.
According to Syracuse Police, Washington drowned his toddler son in the bath tub Saturday night, then placed his body into bed and left the residence for a friend's house.
Washington's friend told police he'd been been out with Washington Saturday night and asked where his son was. The friend became concerned when Washington stated that his son was alone at home.
When the friend insisted that they check on his son, Washington reportedly fled the vehicle and ran off into the night.
Officers arrived at Washington's home and found the toddler unresponsive. As detectives tried to piece together the events that led to the little boy's death, Washington arrived at the police station at 4 a.m. Sunday Morning, accompanied by his sister.
Investigators were in awe as Washington described the method he used to murder his son.
"Washington showed no remorse as he described taking the life of his toddler, Ameen Washington," stated police Chief, Frank Fowler. "He took this baby into the shower and drowned his own baby, this 3-year-old precious baby."
Despite the confession, Washington apparently offered no motive for the killing.
Washington and the boy's mother shared custody - and it was reportedly Washington's week to have the child. Police stated that Washington did not appear to be on drugs at the time and there didn't appear to be an ongoing dispute with the mother.
In a strange twist to the case, Washington's sister, Kahmilah Archer, was shot and killed by her boyfriend seven years ago to the day.
Washington was booked into the Justice Center Jail and charged with second-degree murder. He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday morning.
