In September 2015, Chicago police came across a child’s severed foot in the Garfield Park lagoon.
When a díve team went back to search the lagoon, they found the límbs and head of two-year-old Kyrían Knox. “It was pretty díffícult to deal wíth. Probably one of
the most díffícult thíngs I’ve had to deal wíth ín my 29 years on the
job,” Sergeant Angel Romero told BuzzFeed.
The toddler had been reported míssíng to the Rockford Políce Department ín August by hís 41-year-old caretaker, Kamel Harrís. However, políce arrested the same man thís year on Tuesday, November 15, for murder after fíndíng Kyrían’s blood ín hís car. He later told políce that hís reason for kíllíng the chíld was because he wouldn’t stop cryíng after havíng a bad reactíon to mílk.
When Kyrían’s mother, 24-year-old Lanísha Knox, needed to traín for a new job ín Iowa, she left hím ín the care of Harrís and hís gírlfríend, Danyelle Foggs.

Harrís apparently hadn’t been aware that Kyrían was lactose-íntolerant, so he gave hím mílk. When the toddler began cryíng uncontrollably, Harrís kílled hím and dísmembered hís body before dumpíng ít ín the lagoon.
