Irvin Harris



His mother has struggled with a longtime heroin addiction; his father has been in prison for murder since Irvin was 3 years old. 11-year-old Irvin Harris grew up in a Baltimore family strained by violence, financial problems and drug abuse, court records and interviews show. Shanda Harris has been arrested and cited about a dozen time...s in Baltimore, according to court records.
Then Enter 52 year old Melvin Jones - a man with a history of sexual abuse who admitted to police in 2001 that he is a "pedophile who needs help." Harris said that she found out from her drug treatment counselors that Jones was a registered sex offender. But she said that when she confronted him about it, he told her he had engaged in consensual touching and had not served any jail time.
Jones made himself an important part of the Harris family by providing free babysitting for Irvin and other young relatives. He gave the family money and became a sort of male role model, taking Irwin to the library to show him how to use a computer. Jones also bought Irvin a cell phone, family members said, and he would frequently call and text-message Irwin on the phone.
Harris said she saw a text message that Jones sent to her son recently that said, "I love you." She said she confronted her son and Jones about it. "I cussed him out and said he can't be around my kids," said Harris. "I told my son not to be around him by himself."
Irvin was last seen on July 28, 2006, in the 2900 block of Belair Road with Jones. A missing-person report was filed by Irvin's mother, Shanda Harris.
Jones daughter contacted police and notified them that Jones told her he killed the boy and that the body was behind a church located on Belair Road, according to prosecutors. Detectives found Irvin?s body and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner determined he was killed by 21 stab wounds. Jones then confessed to the investigating detectives.
Shanda Harris,, pleaded guilty earlier to reckless endangerment. Between July1, 2005, and July 30, 2006, Harris allowed Jones, a convicted child sex offender, to have access to her four children, including Irvin.

One step more

August 03, 2006

Everyone who knew that a child molester had befriended 11-year-old Irvin J. Harris must be thinking today, "If only I had ... " The boy, who had been missing from his Northeast Baltimore home, was found stabbed to death early Monday in a wooded area behind a church.
Melvin L. Jones Jr., a convicted sex offender who was barred by a court order from having unsupervised contact with kids, had been a baby sitter for the Harris children and has been charged with Irvin's murder.
Compounding the tragedy of the child's death is that several people did take steps to try to keep him from his accused killer - but each could have taken one step more.
