Suspect is in custody for a minor’s beating that led to death in Milwaukee

May 22, 2018 | Brainwave Science


Dennis King, a 15-year-old Milwaukee boy, was reported missing on May 11th and found dead on Sunday, May 20th, 2018. A 21-year-old man has been charged with Dennis’ killing. His name is Malik M. Terrell and he is facing a charge of first-degree intentional homicide, as a party to the crime, in the death of Dennis King, a Milwaukee Police spokeswoman stated. Malik M. Terrell was not listed in online court or jail records as of late Monday. Dennis King was missing for 1 week when his body was found on North 11th Street near West Keefe Avenue, about a block from where he was last seen, Police officials stated. At least one Milwaukee news station, WISN-TV, has quoted family members as Dennis King was beaten to death over an allegation of a video game system theft. Mayor Tom Barrett stated to reporters that it was a “totally senseless act that resulted in his death.” “It was one where you just have to shake your head and think this should never have happened,” Mayor Tom Barrett said, declining to provide more specific information. Milwaukee Police had asked Saturday for the public’s help in trying to find Dennis, whom they classified as critically missing. The alert was canceled about 5 a.m. Sunday before Police announced Dennis King was found dead.


“Our community has lost another son and it’s obviously our commitment that no parent should have to bury a child in this community,” Reggie Moore, director of Milwaukee’s Office of Violence Prevention, said in an interview. “As we enter the summer, adults in our community should take every opportunity possible to mentor and support young people throughout the city,” he added. “We can’t wait until there’s a crisis or a death. We have to be proactive and engaged with young people in our families and in our neighborhoods.” Milwaukee officials have a singular focus this summer: No children should be killed in homicides. To accomplish that, city and county agencies like the Health Department, Police Department, and Sheriff’s Office are working together with nonprofits and youth-serving organizations to keep kids busy and safe this summer. How can Milwaukee Police, as a local police agency, gather intelligence on this crime to prove if the suspect detained is, in fact, the killer? The bigger question here is, what if there was a technology to avail for Law Enforcement to help prevent more deaths of innocent children in Milwaukee area?


iCognative by Brainwave Science is the answer to the above-proposed problem. With the use of iCognative authorities can determine who killed 15-year-old Dennis. The family claims that Dennis lost his life over something as petty as a video game and was beaten to death for it. Such claims can be easily verified using this technology. This pioneering security investigative solution distinguishes between innocents and criminals by detecting concealed or hidden information in the brain. A  test can be conducted on any person of interest since it respects Human Rights, it is non-invasive and 99% accurate. iCognative by Brainwave Science detects crime relevant concealed information and supports the investigation by quick identification of criminals, conspirators, co-conspirators from innocents. The technology identifies any specific concealed or hidden information in the brain using P300 (an established scientific phenomenon) The P300 wave is a positive deflection in the human event-related potential such positive amplitudes on the identification of stimuli are collected and analyzed by iCognative test in a matter of just 45 minutes to an hour. It matches information from the crime scene with information stored in the suspect’s brain – which authorities have not released to the public. The technology behind the system is completely automated, so it requires minimal human intervention, virtually eliminates all errors and has an unparalleled accuracy rate. In order to conduct a test on Malik M. Terrell, a test case must be built. To do so, the investigative agent must input confidential information into the system about the case, used as test stimuli. In this case, the following facts are examples if they are not disclosed: location where the body of the victim was found – North 11th Street near West Keefe Avenue; how the victim was killed – beaten up; date the body was found – 20th of May; time of the day the body was found – early morning.  All this information will be input into the system in the form of  pictures or words, depending on the available information. Additionally, this effective solution brings Milwaukee Police the opportunity to understand whether the suspect acted on his own or with the help of someone else. The knowledge that such system exists with Milwaukee Police may very well act as a powerful prevention for others who intend to commit such horrible crimes against youth in Milwaukee. Hopefully, law enforcement agencies can make the most of this life-saving iCognative technology before any more valuable young lives are lost.
