Police Arrest Uncle Of Kami Ring

June 13, 2013 at 9:06 am by  

Kami RingPort Deposit, MD – Police in Maryland say they have a person of interest in custody in connection to the death of 10-year-old Kami Ring.

On Monday, 10-year-old Kami Ring was reported missing. The straight-A student had been last seen on June 9 inside the home she lived with her grandparents. When she was unable to be located the following morning, 911 was called.

That evening, police found Kami’s body 60 yards away beside a shed in a field across the street. How Kami died has not been released, but MSP spokeswoman Elena Russo says it appears foul play was involved.

On Tuesday, police arrested Kami’s uncle, 29-year-old Richard Madden Jr, who also lived in the home. While searching the home, Maryland State Police homicide detectives found cocaine and marijuana pipes that belonged to Madden. He has a criminal history dating back to 2004, including a recent conviction for theft that had him sentenced to five years in prison.

He was released last October, but these latest charges violate the terms of his probation. Madden admitted to deputies he is currently on parole and stated he would fail a urine test for drugs. Police have not named Madden as a suspect in Kami’s murder, but have said they have a person of interest in custody. They have decided not to release his mugshot at this time.

This may be because they do not want people automatically assuming that his arrest means he is guilty of murdering Kami. Keep in mind, it was revealed that the window in the room Ring was believed to have been sleeping was found open by investigators and that the screen was popped out.

Kami used to live in Charlestown with her mother, stepfather and two younger half-siblings. But for reasons currently unknown, she was living with the couple n Port Deposit she considered her grandparents, and her two siblings are in the care of social services.

Life can truly be unfair. Kami was delivered some hard knocks at a young age, but seemed to be rolling with the punches and making the best of things, only to wind up dead in a field at 10-years-old.

    wow! the fact her siblings were taken makes me wonder what was done in her home where she lived with mom and “stepdad”, only to be handed over to be killed by “someone”

  • So strange to see a local story on here. :/ just wanted to clarify the story in that the person in custody is not her biological uncle, but a man living with her “grandparents” (also not biologically related).

  • newstarshipsmell

    Man, stories like these remind me that, as dysfunctional as my family is some days, they ain’t that bad, really…

  • Rachel Ann

    Ugh, how sad. If he did do it then fuck him for one and number two…why? I hope it wasn’t a sexually motivated crime that would just really ruin my fucking day.

  • Yeah, I was going to try and clarify that the grandparents and uncle were in name only, but it was too confusing.

    “life’s a bitch and then you die. thats why we get high – cuz ya never know when you’re gunna go.” Nas in ’94

  • Blair Krueger

    ..because if it was motivated by something else she’s less dead, right?

    I’m willing to bet that maybe one or two people had their days ruined just slightly more than you by this.

  • JohnQknowitall

    OMG A state that upholds innocent until proven guilty. I hope to fuck it wasn’t a relative. I wish to fuck it never happened.

  • Rachel Ann

    Fuck you too. Say something constructive or leave me the hell alone. I don’t come here to be poked by idiots.

  • Justagirl

    .. On top of the poor kid being killed, a sexual assault would be all the more terrifying, no?

  • Pyncky

    He was only arrested for drugs and parole violation. Hope they are still looking for her killer and not just taking a short cut to close a case.

  • Blair Krueger didn’t say anything constructive. How come I have to?

  • link07

    The guy may be a drug addict but hopefully thats all he is guilty of.

  • newstarshipsmell

    *pokes @RachelAnnPrince:disqus*

  • Buffettgirl

    Sadly, I think the person of interest is the Uncle. Just a feeling. By arresting him they can hold him on the violation while they continue to investigate Kami’s death without having to charge him her death because he’s already in custody legitimately…

  • RedScarab

    Every site I see says she considered Richard Madden her uncle. But I don’t think he was her actual uncle by blood. What is his actual connection to the family?

    (I’m morbidly curious)

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    Hell, my family takes the fun outta dysfunctional…

  • Defafan

    Sad life for this child. Children are such a blessing and these people piss it all away. I hope the other siblings find good adoptive parents who give them what nobody gave Kami. I hope the man who did this pays for it.

  • tkaz

    I just tried to pronounce it – not easy!

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    I was wonderin’ which fish would rise to the bait… LMRAO!

  • Blair Krueger

    True. I just didn’t care for how she made this horrible thing about -her.-

  • Richard Madden has been formally charged with 1st and 2nd degree murder, 1st degree rape and 1st degree assault.

    First of all, she was not LIVING in that house, she went there after school was out to stay for a week for a mini vacation. SEcond, he was arrested for the rape and murder of this 10 year old child this evening.

  • Jo

    Siblings werent “TAKEN”… they were living with their parents.

  • Curlykate910

    And even if the siblings had been living in the grandparent’s home and were taken by CPS, it doesn’t necessarily mean they were being abused at the grandparent’s house. I would think allowing a drug addict felon to live in your home when you have kids would be enough to get them yanked from your custody.

  • Curlykate910

    p.s. hmm after reading the page you linked, the write up above is pretty inaccurate.

  • RedScarab

    I think I found my answer.

    From what I gather the “Grandparents” had at one time thought one of their sons was Kami’s father but supposedly the real father lives in California. I’m assuming Richard Madden Jr. is the brother of this guy that once thought he was Kami’s father because that guy supposedly lives in Oregon. So I’m assuming the mother is like your usual Maury Povich guest.

  • Jeanette Adams

    plus mom spent time in jail in oregan for the death of her 8 month old son then her 10 year old dies ..good thing the other 2 are in foster care

  • Ruebene

    Profound. Nas is one of the great minds of the 20th century.

  • Save Ferris

    Thanks for the follow up. Hope do you charge someone with first and second degree murder?

  • Heather_Habilatory

    We kinda do that here, all the time.

  • Dawn

    To answer some of these questions if ya’ll haven’t already heard, it was not a blood relative but she thought of him as an uncle. He is still awaiting trial with several sexual crime charges, murder charges and child abuse charges. He pleaded not criminally responsible, whatever that means. It’s been a very long wait for those of us from the area. I just hope that all of this ends soon for the family members who lost Kami. The entire thing makes no sense to anyone. Odd how the death penalty in Maryland had just been outlawed and he will not have to face that. It’s a shame.
