Murder victim. Porchia was found beaten, malnourished, and suffocated in the West Philadelphia home of her aunt, Candace Geiger, and Geiger's boyfriend, Jerry Chambers. They have been charged with Porchia's murder and the abuse and neglect of her three older sisters. Tiffany Bennett, the girl's mother, has been charged with endangering the welfare of her children by leaving them in the care of Geiger and Chambers. The case has made headlines in the Philadelphia area as one of the worst cases of child abuse ever seen. Porchia's case had been investigated before her death by the Department of Human Services, but the case "fell through the cracks" when Bennett moved and DHS was unable to locate the family.
