Hugh Christopher Newsom, Jr., 23, and Channon Gail Christian, 21, were a couple from Knoxville, Tennessee. According to a Tennessee grand jury, they were both raped and murdered after being kidnapped early on the morning of January 7, 2007. Their vehicle had been carjacked. Five suspects have been arrested and charged in the case. The grand jury indicted four of the suspects on counts of murder, robbery, kidnapping, rape and theft, while one final suspect has already been convicted of federal charges as accessory after the fact to carjacking.

The victims were white and middle class, and the defendants are poor and black. Some
conservative Internet commentators and white supremacist agitators accused the national media of reverse discrimination by failing to give the case the same attention paid to white-on-black hate crimes.

According to news reports, Christian and Newsom had gone on a date at a local restaurant on Saturday, January 6, 2007, but did not return home. During their night out, the couple was "hijacked, bound and blindfolded and taken back to Lemaricus Davidson's rented house on Chipman Street."

Christian's parents found her abandoned Toyota 4-Runner two blocks away from the Chipman Street house the following Monday with the help of her mobile phone provider. An envelope recovered from the vehicle yielded fingerprint evidence that led police to Lemaricus Davidson and 2316 Chipman Street. When police went to the address on Tuesday, January 9, they found the home unoccupied and Christian's body in a trash can in the kitchen.

According to the testimony of the Knox County Acting Medical Examiner Dr. Darinka Mileusnic-Polchan at the subsequent trial of Eric Boyd, Newsom was repeatedly raped and then blindfolded, gagged, arms and feet bound and his head covered. Barefoot, he was either led or dragged outside the house to a set of nearby railroad tracks. He was shot in the back of the head, the neck, and the back, and his body then set on fire. Christian's death would come only after hours of sexual torture, medical examiner Mileusnic-Polchan testified. Christian suffered horrific injuries to her vagina, anus and mouth. She was not only raped but savaged with "an object," possibly a broken chair leg, the doctor testified. She was beaten in the head. Some type of chemical was poured down her throat, and her body, including her bleeding and battered genital area, likely scrubbed with the same solution - all while Christian was alive, the forensic expert said. She was then "hog-tied," with curtains and strips of bedding, her face covered tightly with a small trash bag and her body stashed inside five large trash bags before being placed inside a large trash can and covered with sheets. Christian died slowly, suffocating, the medical examiner said.

I always sat on the fence about the death penalty till I heard about this case , and a controlled death ( Leathal Injection ) is to good for these people . They should feel the pain and fear they cause these young people to go through . I really feel sad for the families but seeing the young woman's father breaks my heart .I pray God gives the families strength to make it through all the hard days ahead of them.

The suspects , May God have Mercy on their sole .He will be their final judge and I would hate to be in their shoes on that final judgment day.

How can anybody do this to another person. It's a sad time we live in ,& it's not getting any better.

If the victims had been black and the assailants white, there's no doubt that this would have made national, even world news headlines. And of course it would have been classified as a hate crime. Those animals deserve the cruelest of deaths. I'm sure they could feed some of the predators at the Knoxville Zoo with their sorry carcasses.

No you are all wrong they should die the most painful way and slow,and it be put on television would wide for all their family to see there are just poor n****** and the 2 white people were middle class this was a HATE CRIME!!!!!! We need to set an example of these n****** and that is all that they are is n******. They should be put in prison and gang raped over and over.Most black people think we owe them for what our grand daddy did to them,they are right. My personal opinion about black people we owe then alright a one way ticket back to Africa and the white people that is with them can go too. And treat them like mexicans shoot the first one that comes over the US border. Most crimes are because of black people that is not a race thing just watch cops on TV or look at the new paper in the big city where all the blacks are, judge me if you want but most people know this is true we as the American people need to take back our land!!!!!!!!!!
P.S. every person knows that to be true weather they want to agree or not.

This was a hate crime & why are they not reporting it as one?
If these suspect are found guilty , they should all be put to death.

Fax did run this story when it happened but none of the other main stream midea even touched on it. Do you remember the Lacross student be charged in the Duke case, this was on every network every radio station in the country but it was white on Black and when it were found the white boys had nothing to with it and it was all a bunch of lies ,not ones or not one media outlet come out and say we are sorry

I hope theses scumb-bags die a slow agonizing death. May they rot in hell!!!!If this is not a hate crime I don't know what is. Where is Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson. Oh that's right the victems are white. If the perps had been white and the victims black we would never here the end of it. White or black theses were inocent people who were horifically tortured and murdered. The death penalty as it exsists in America is too good for them.

Christopher Newsom,, and Channon Christian was worse than murdered. The car-jacked thugs , raped Christopher Newsom, cut off his penis, then set him on fire & fatally shot him several times while they forced his girlfriend, Channon Christian, to watch.

Channon Christian was beaten & gang-raped for days by all of the black scum bags , while they took turns urinating on her. Then they cut off her breast and then a chemical was poured down her throat, and her body, including her bleeding and battered private area, & she was scrubbed with the same solution - all while Christian was alive, the forensic expert said. She was then "hog-tied," with curtains & strips of bedding, her face covered tightly with a small trash bag & her body stashed inside five large trash bags before being placed inside a large trash can & covered with sheets. Christian died slowly, suffocating, the medical examiner said.The young couple died a horrible deaths & their killers will get an Lethal injection which is a painless process,if they are found guilty . Which probably will not happen . Please Remember the Newsom & Christian in your prayers.

These EVIL people should never again see the light of day. They should be forced to sit in a dark room until slowly and painfully executed!
I can't begin to imagine what the parents of Channon and Chris are going through...having to sit through the tesimony of these professionals. They are enduring their own torcher now. We should all lift them up in prayer. God can be the only source of comfort and relief from this!

Christopher's penis was not cut off. There was testimony yesterday that on "E" Boyd's phone there were pictures of Christopher Newsom being raped, due to my connection I missed who was seen in the pics. It's so very sad to hear the way they were done. The important thing to remember is that their hands were being held by angel's and their suffering was being absorbed and taken away by God Almighty.
