Janus Saintil accused of kidnapping and killing his infant son found dead in TRUNK of stolen car underneath DIAPER BAG

A Florida father has been charged with kidnapping and killing his one-month-old son who was found dead in the trunk of a stolen car.

According to law enforcement officials, Janus Saintil, aged 24, of Deerfield Beach, was driving on Thursday with the baby’s mother, Claudia Harriot, Marissa Murray and Andrew Pennant, all three aged 22, to a North Lauderdale Walmart when he got into an argument with Harriot over their relationship and pulled out a gun.

Murray told CBS4 News Harriot broke up with the 24-year-old in the car.

Saintil had allegedly kidnapped the three and forced Pennant to drive about 85 miles to Port St. Lucie, where he dropped off his son at an unknown house.

'I was just praying and I was just cooperating and I didn’t want to make any sudden moves 'cause I felt like he was in all our heads,' Murray said. 'He must have lost it or something. I don’t know what went on in his mind. He pulled out a gun and held us hostage.'

According to court documents, Saintil then took away his hostages’ cell phones and told Pennant to withdraw money from a gas station ATM. However, when the man refused and started yelling for help, Saintil fled in the car that belonged to Pennant’s mother and returned to South Florida with his son in tow.

Before he left, however, he told Harriot that he was going to kill their baby, according to the report. Read More
