Father of Slain Milwaukee 3-Year-Old Speaks

The Milwaukee County medical examiner has determined a 3-year-old boy found dead in Milwaukee was shot in the head.

The boy, Major P. Harris, and his mother, 25-year-old Mallery Muenzenberger, had been missing since Oct. 9.

Muenzenberger’s body was found in a Milwaukee backyard on Oct. 14. She had been shot to death.

The suspect in her slaying, Jaheem Clark, killed himself on Sunday as police arrived at his residence.

The boy’s body was discovered Thursday in a dumpster.

His father, Carlton Harris, told reporters Friday “My son was shot in the head, a 3-year-old baby. My plea is not even to the community no more. My plea is to the world. I need justice for my son.”

The medical examiner’s office tweeted Friday that an autopsy showed Harris had been shot in the head and his death has been ruled a homicide.

The office also tweeted that an autopsy conducted Tuesday confirmed the suspect, Clark, shot himself in the head.
