David Barnett Son. David Barnett is convicted of murdering grand parents and is currently serving life sentence.
David Barnett Son name is Seth, Boy who was thought to have taken birth in 2012.
David barnett & his partner Secil became parents in 2012 which is unconfirmed date.
Later david stabbed his Grand Parents to death in 2013 and immediately accepted the heinous crime.
Clifford and Leona Barnett, who had been stabbed more than 20 times in their own house, were discovered in a pool of their own blood.
Barnett, who was convicted of the crimes and condemned to death, used five different knives to kill Leona and Clifford.
While the God-fearing couple were attending a church service at the adjacent Kirkwood Baptist Church, Johnny quietly stepped inside his grandparents’ house.
As he waited for his surprised grandparents to arrive home, Barnett even fell asleep while watching TV on the couch.
Barnett was placed into care when he was five years old, and by the time he was seven, he was living with Rita Reames and her family – and finally had to learn how to love a small boy.
But then Rita was offered the opportunity to study overseas, but she was unable to take Barnett since he was her foster son.
“I believed I’d done something wrong, that they were getting rid of me because I hadn’t done anything correctly,” he said.
When Barnett was eight years old, he was placed in the care system and moved in with his uncle, John Barnett.
It wasn’t long before the small child was adopted by the computer instructor.
On paper, things between the two seemed great, with John giving David with the kind of traditional American upbringing that many people fantasise about: white picket fences, summer camps, and so on. However, John and David’s relationship swiftly devolved into a nightmare, as John started to sexually and physically assault David.
When John adopted two more boys and started abusing one of them, Eric, David was unable to cope with his guilt.
David moved out after he reached 18 years old. John hadn’t seen David since before Christmas 1995, when he killed Clifford and Leona Barnett in February 1996.
“I don’t despise John; I still adore him for what he attempted to do,” David remarked in the episode. He had his own issues that he couldn’t seem to solve.”
Although David was able to forgive John, viewers were unable to do so and were not hesitant to express their outrage at his behaviour. One Twitter user even went so far as to say, “I believe David Barnett’s father is to blame for his grandparents’ deaths.”
Clifford and Leona Barnett were brutally murdered, and Barnett knows it. He recalls being at the residence. He recalls the two of them coming back together. He recalls the blood, the blades, and the fear. He has no recollection of murdering them.
During the murders, David claims he passed out. It’s not unusual to hear from those who have committed acts of severe violence. Many violent offenders claim to have had dissociative states while committing heinous crimes. Stories of dissociation and amnesia abound in the history of forensic psychiatry. Amnesia is documented in up to 30% of killings in the United States each year.
David Barnett wasn’t the first person to lose track of time and ‘leave his body.’ He was really very good at it. He’d been doing it for half his life. It wasn’t on intention; it was more instinctive. Abused children have a propensity to disconnect during times of abuse in order to avoid some of the psychological effects and pain.
