4 Year Old Boy Murdered Because He Might Have Been Gay

Posted By on July 8, 2011

Durham, North Carolina – 4 year old Jadon Higganbothan was murdered by his step-father because he thought that Jadon might be gay. It’s a heartbreaking story, Jadon and his mother apparently were part of a cult that was run by the step-father.

Peter Lucas Moses, 27, was apparently the head a small cult involving 4 women and 9 children. Moses was the father of all the children with the exception of Jadon.

In October of last year, Moses apparently became obsessed with the idea that Jadon was gay and demanded that his mother, 25 year old Vania Rae Sisk “get rid of him.” When she didn’t, here’s what happened:


Moses ordered two of the women to set up computers and speakers in the garage, prosecutors said they were told by the witness. They said he started playing music with the Lord’s Prayer in Hebrew, took Jadon in the garage and shut the door, and the women then heard a gunshot.

Prosecutors said the witness told them that the women helped clean up the body of Jadon, who had been shot in the head, and put it in a suitcase in Moses’ master suite. He later told them to get the body out because it was beginning to smell, prosecutors said.

The other children, who have been placed in foster homes by Social Services, have told authorities they feared that Moses would do to them “what he did to Jadon,” Cline said. “The children are fearful of Pete Moses Jr.”

The story doesn’t end there unfortunately. Two months later, in December of 2010, Moses also murdered one of the other women when he found out she couldn’t have children. Like Jadon, her body was kept in the house for several days before she and Jadon were buried in the backyard of Moses’ mother. The bodies were only discovered recently by a plumber who contacted police.

When questioned, Jadon’s mother Vania Sisk denied that he ever had existed and police were only able to confirm it when they found a copy of Jadon’s birth certificate.

Moses, Sisk and the other women are all facing 1st Degree Murder charges.

    Male Lions actually behave the same way. This person is simply uncivilized. Sad to say people like this even have children. Somewhere someplace there should be a test given to folks prior to the mother delivering, just to be sure the parents pass some minimal level of mental fitness. Parenting is both the best and most difficult job in the world. I do not believe being physically capable of having children is sufficient enough criteria, and with this example, it is clear that some people lack the moral compass and social functioning that every parent needs to have before bringing life into the world. Now someone reading will inevitably ask, WHO MAKES THE TEST AND WHO GETS TO DECIDE WHO IS FIT AND WHO IS NOT? My answer is, without the test, with custody passing to the biological parents JUST BECAUSE they are biological parents, this is what can happen. The question is which is the greater evil. Allowing animals like this guy to have several children, or making people custodial parents by default of biology. As bad as the foster care system is, Peter Lucas Moses might prefer it to the fate he got.
