Maisah Larkin Bio – Maisah Larkin Wiki
Maisah Larkin was found shot in the head on the first floor of a living room in her Philadelphia home around 8:08 pm Sunday, authorities told FOX 29 Philadelphia.
Maisah Larkin was 39 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
After a frantic overnight search, a set of 2-year-old triplets were found safe on Dec. 19 after their mother was murdered in her living room the night before, according to a statement from the Philadelphia police.
On Sunday, Dec. 18, around 8 pm, officers responded to the Philadelphia home of Maisah Larkin on reports of a “person screaming,” per a police incident update.
Inside, Larkin was found dead from multiple gunshot wounds to the head.
A man believed to be her partner, 37-year-old Stanley Baptiste, allegedly took the couple’s three toddlers from the house after killing Larkin.
But the following day, when police found Baptiste in his Lincoln Navigator, dead of a gunshot wound, the triplets — a girl and two boys — were nowhere in sight. At that point, Pennsylvania State Police began publicly pleading for help finding the missing kids.
The toddlers were finally found safe the next day with a family member in Lansdale, Pa. (about 35 miles from Philadelphia), to the relief of relatives and friends.
Brenda Lovelace, Larkin’s neighbor, told ABC 6 that the mom had said Baptiste was abusive. “She was planning on leaving, but she didn’t leave fast enough,” Lovelace said.
“I am still in shock,” Lovelace said, the outlet reported. “When I heard what happened, I just broke down and cried.”
A fundraiser organized by the triplets’ aunt asks well-wishers to donate for the grieving family’s “difficult healing process without Maisah here Earthside,” noting that the children will need to be moved to a relative’s home outside the Philadelphia area.
Philadelphia police are still investigating Larkin’s murder as a homicide with a “domestic” motive.
