Suspected killer skips on $1,500 bond
Peter Moses is suspected of shooting his girlfriend's 5-year-old son, putting the body in a suitcase and putting it in an attic.
He also may be part of the Black Hebrews, or as The N&O puts it, "a black supremacist wing of the Hebrew Israelite movement believes Jesus Christ will soon return and kill whites, Jews, homosexuals and others, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The boy has apparently been missing since October. Moses got picked up Feb. 18 at a house where Durham police were investigating "suspicious activity." They found him hiding in a cabinet and arrested him on old warrants, firing a gun within the city limits and writing a worthless check.
Moses had to put up a $1,500 bond to get out of jail. He didn't show up for court today, according to NBC 17's 7 p.m. newscast. The missing boy's mother skipped her own court appearance earlier this month.
It is unclear, to me at least, when police developed the informant that told them Moses killed this child. Or when it became common knowledge that Moses, allegedly, manipulates women into moving around with him, and into supporting him because Moses "didn't work."
But doesn't $1,500 seem like a low bond for a suspected murderer and cult leader?
