Two wards of the D.C. Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services (DYRS) - including one who escaped from its $46 million, state-of-the-art detention facility in Maryland - were brought to justice last week after being involved with violent crimes.
A 20-year-old D.C. man was sentenced to 60 years in prison on Friday for killing a 17-year-old honor roll student who was walking back to his Northeast home with a friend last year after a brief jaunt for cigarettes.
Of the 10 current and former city wards arrested on murder charges since The Washington Times concluded an analysis of a year's worth of killings connected to this population of youths, the case of 19-year-old Kwan Kearney, charged in two homicides a week apart, is perhaps the most chilling.
A 19-year-old fatally shot over the weekend in Northwest Washington and the 19-year-old arrested for his killing were both wards of the city's troubled Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services (DYRS), The Washington Times has learned.
Multiple sources confirmed for The Times that both Kearney and 19-year-old Jamal Wilson were actively in the custody of the city at the time police say Kearney fatally shot Wilson through the heart on Nov. 14.
