Birth: unknown
Death: Jul. 16, 1985
St. Lucie County
Florida, USA

Skeketah, 10, vanished together with her parents, Carolyn and James, and her brothers Barry, 6, and Brandon, 2, from their family home in Port St. Lucie, Florida on July 16, 1985. Several weeks later, James was found in Port St. Lucie alone. When police asked him what happened to his family, he confessed to murdering them.

James said he shot his wife while she slept and smothered Brandon, who was sleeping beside her. He buried their bodies in Belle Glade, Florida and drove Sheketah and Barry to Georgia, along Interstate 95, where he shot them both to death and buried them.

James was never charged in connection with his sons' murders, but he was tried for killing Sheketah and Carolyn. He was acquitted in late 1985 and committed to a mental hospital afterwards, as he had been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. He has since been released. Carolyn's, Barry's, Brandon's and Sheketah's bodies have never been found.
