Dad strangles 8-year-old son to death in botched murder-suicide attempt; clueless neighbors praise him as "caring father" (Queens, New York)

Why do reporters continuously pull this stale, misleading bull crap? It's called the Clueless Neighbor interview, and it illuminates exactly nothing--except how stupid people are and how easily they are mislead by superficial appearances.

Dads who murder their kids aren't "caring" or "good" or "loving." Almost to a person, they are narcissists who see women and kids as mere extensions of themselves, or as objects to keep or throw away as they see fit. But they often have a glib charm, which fools people who don't know them well.

Notice there is no mention of the mother. Wonder if she had recently separated from the father. That is often the case in these murders. It's very often about punishing/controlling the mother by harming what she loves most--her children.

Dad is identified as BOUJEKE KENMOE.

Dad Kills 8-Year-Old Son and Tries to Commit Suicide, Police Say

A father cut his wrists after killing his 8-year-old son in their Flushing home Sunday, police said.

QUEENS — A Flushing father strangled his 8-year-old son to death and then slit his own wrists in an apparent suicide attempt inside the family's home Sunday night, sources said.

Police responding to a 911 call found Boujeke Kenmoe, 41, laying on the ground and bleeding from both wrists inside his Underhill Avenue home, near Kissena Park, just after 10 p.m. — not far from the bed where his son lay dead, police said.

Kenmoe was taken to Queens General Hospital in stable condition, where he was arrested on murder charges, the NYPD said.

The boy, whose name was not immediately released, displayed no visible signs of trauma but investigators believe Kenmoe strangled him, sources said. The Medical Examiner will determine the boy's cause of death.

Classmates of the boy, a third grader who at one time practiced taekwondo at Eagles gym on 162nd Street, were shocked by his death.

"He used to hang out with me and my other friends. We liked to play tag and cops and robbers," 9-year-old Kyle Bahrey said, standing next to his mother. "He was smart. He was good at reading," Bahrey said.

Police did not immediately have an explanation for the attack. A neighbor said she heard a scream come from the apartment at 7:30 p.m. Sunday night.

"It was just an outburst, a long one. I didn't think anything of it," said Eleanor Blaha, 76.

Neighbors added that they had not seen any signs of trouble and described Kenmoe as a caring father.

"Whenever I saw them, they were holding hands. He seemed loving," said neighbor James Lana, 75. "He looked like a good father."
