Keshawn Perkins charged with killing grandmother, off-duty Chicago police officer Hester Scott, in her Chicago home over skipping school. Ms. Scott, who served 25 years with the Chicago Police Department, wasn’t murdered in the line of duty, but in the privacy of her home, at the hands of her 15 year old adopted grandson because he didn’t want to go to school and better himself.
According to the Chicago Sun Times, prosecutors said Scott found Perkins sleeping in the basement in front of a television and when she woke him up and yelled at him for skipping school, he struck her with a lamp, “until she shut up” and stabbed her several times with a kitchen knife.
Prosecutors said Perkins wrapped his grandmother’s body in a blanket and dragged her to a catch basin in the back yard and dumped her there before taking her purse and fleeing.

This woman took him in and gave him a home and this is how he repaid her? By bludgeoning and stabbing her to death? If it’s any consolation, this thug won’t be on the streets again. He could receive life in prison because he killed a police officer. Some people just can’t be rehabilitated. Hester Scott was taking care of several grandkids because her daughter had “issues.”
