A black mother and daughter who killed five members of their family initially told police that two black men had committed the grisly murders before changing their stories.

Shana Decree, 45, and her daughter, Dominique, 19, killed five children, including three under 14, at the their two-bedroom apartment in Morrisville, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia.

The murders, which occurred Saturday, February 23 were part of a suicide pact. The deceased were identified as Naa’ira Smith, 25, Damon Decree Jr., 13, Jamilla Campbell, 42, and Campbell’s twin daughters, Imani and Erika Allen, aged nine.

Some of the victims were strangled.

Police charged each of the women with five counts of murder and conspiracy.


White woman claimed three black men kidnapped and raped her, but it was all a lie

Breana Harmon Talbott

Breana Harmon Talbott told Denison, Texas, police last March that three black men wearing ski masks kidnapped her and two of them raped her while the third man held her down.

Harmon, who has long blond hair, later walked into church, wearing only a shirt, bra and underwear.

Police became suspicious about her story. Two weeks after concocting the lie, Harmon admitted she made up the story after getting into an argument with her boyfriend, which led her to believe their relationship wouldn’t last.

She pleaded guilty to counts of tampering with/fabricating physical  evidence and two counts of tampering with government records.

Harmon is scheduled to be sentenced on March 20 but she is not expected to face jail time.
