Darriynn Brown visited Cash Gernon's home & was told to leave when he 'creeped out kids' before 'he returned to kill'05/20/2021
THE alleged killer of Cash Gernon visited his home and was told to leave when he "creeped out the kids" before he returned to allegedly kill the Texas boy.
Guardian of the murdered four-year-old, Monica Sherrod, claimed that Darriynn Brown visited the house two days earlier while she was out.
Cash's body was discovered at around 6:30am on Saturday morning after surveillance footage showed Brown allegedly abducting the boy from his crib.
The four-year-old was reportedly found shirtless and shoeless with various wounds from “an edged weapon,” according to police.
The motive for Gernon’s death is still under investigation.
It was revealed on Wednesday that Brown had visited the family home while Sherrod was out grocery shopping two days prior.
She returned to her home in Mountain Creek, Dallas, and found Brown spending time with Cash.
The unannounced visit and playtime with her young son irritated Sherrod.
The alleged kidnapping killer was an acquaintance to one of her sons.
“I told him, 'Don't come back around my kids. I don't want you,'” she told the Daily Mail.
She chewed out her older son and daughter for letting the young man into the home without her permission.
“He was only here a short time,” she said. “Emily [her daughter] said he creeped her out. I got upset with them.”
The suspected kidnapper is suspected of quietly breaching the garage door.
“The kidnapper broke in through that door right there,” she said.
Footage pulled from surveillance cameras installed in the six-bedroom Florina Parkway home shows the boy being snatched from his bed early Saturday morning by a man donning hooded attire and a backpack.
The same man is then seen returning to the boys' bedroom allegedly attempting to take his twin brother, Carter.
He had been missing for two hours until the ex-girlfriend of Cash’s biological father, Monica Sherrod, called cops.
Sherrod said she had been looking after Cash and Carter like they were her own since their biological father, Trevor Gernon, 31, split after he purportedly learned of an open warrant for his arrest involving an illicit pill case.
“I don't know where Trevor is,” she told the Mail.
“I have tried reaching out but I'm getting no response."
Child abuse detectives found the 18-year-old Brown at his home – a half-mile from where Cash’s body was found – and took him into custody.
He was described as wearing an ankle bracelet for an unrelated crime on the morning of the kidnapping.
Once they performed a search of the home where Cash was living, detectives discovered a piece of tissue paper with drops of blood on it and a small pocket knife, the Dallas Morning News reported.
Meanwhile, a makeshift memorial was assembled and Sherrod dropped off the child's favorite dinosaur toy.
The dead child adored superheroes and would mimic Iron Man's pulse powers, his older brother Kamron Mori, 18, told the Dallas Morning News.
He admitted he and his family are inconsolable after all they endured.
"I’m already cried out,” he said.
Cash's biological mother and grandmother have been in touch with authorities while Cash was missing.
They have since managed to reunite with Carter, the Dallas Morning News confirmed.
On Monday Brown was held in lieu of $1.5 million bail after being formally charged with kidnapping and burglary.
More charges are expected to be brought once investigators complete the forensic lab work.
Mimi Brown, who claimed to be Brown’s mother and who lives with her, is convinced authorities are wrongfully placing blame on her son.
