Miami Teen Kit Durant Murders Mother, Renette Emile, After She Scolded Him for Staying Out Late

SHOCK:  Kit Durant murdered his mother, Renette Emile, 35, in her Miami, Fla., apartment because she scolded him for staying out late on a week night. Kit Durant, 16, even threw a party while his mother’s decomposing body was hidden in the bedroom, Tuesday night, four days after she was stabbed to death. Durant, a student at Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School, was arrested

According to the affidavit, he cleaned up the blood, sprinkled her body with deodorizers and laundry detergent to mask the smell and wrapped it in bed sheets. Relatives kept calling the apartment but he told them his mother couldn’t come to the phone.

According to the affidavit, Darrant was angry with his mother after they fought about him staying out late. He decided to kill her when she went to bed. While she was sleeping, he strangled her until she lost consciousness but when he realized she was still breathing, he got a butcher knife and stabbed her in the back of the neck before turning her over and stabbing her repeatedly in the body and arms until she was dead.

His baby brother was sleeping in the next room, according to the Miami Herald. He went to bed and then cleaned the crime scene the next morning. Source

I don’t know what’s happening to some of our young males and why they are prone to such violence. Earlier this week I reported about a Livonia teen, Brian Douglas White killing his ex-girlfriend’s mother and her current boyfriend in a double murder-suicide because he was upset at being dumped. It’s not just a black-on-black issue. This violence cuts across socioeconomic background and race.
