Truck in Amber Alert Found in Md.; Search for 8-Year-Old Relisha Tenau Rudd Continues
Friday, Mar 21, 2014  |  Updated 2:24 PM EDT

An 8-year-old girl remains missing Friday, even after police found a vehicle described in an Amber Alert for her. Meanwhile, police are trying to unravel the mystery behind the death of a woman found during their search for the missing girl.

Relisha Tenau Rudd was last seen Feb. 26 at the D.C. Shelter for Families on the grounds of the old D.C. General Hospital in Southeast. On Thursday, police issued an Amber Alert for her, saying she was believed to be in the company of 51-year-old Kahlil Malik Tatum, who works as a janitor at the shelter.

But Thursday night in Hyattsville, Md., police found the white 1976 GMC truck they believed the two were traveling in; shortly after, police reissued their alert, which only contained a description of the missing girl.

AMBER ALERT: DC Girl Missing; abductor charged in murder

Susan Phillips, WUSA 12:51 a.m. EDT March 22, 2014


WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- An Amber Alert is still active for 8-year-old Relisha Tenau Rudd. Her family is pleading with her abductor to return her home safely.

"Just bring my daughter home. That's all I want, just bring my daughter home," said Antonio Wheeler, Relisha's stepfather, pleading with Khalil Tatum.

Police believe Relisha is with Tatum, 51, a janitor at the homeless shelter where the girl had been living with her mother and Wheeler.

Thursday, while searching for Relisha and Tatum, Prince George's County police found Tatum's wife, beaten to death at a Red Roof Inn on Oxon Hill Road in Prince George's County.

Friday, authorities there charged Tatum with the death of his wife, Andrea Denise Tatum, 51.

D.C. police alerted PGPD that one of the cars sought in the Rudd case was seen at a Red Roof Inn. When officers arrived, they found a woman dead inside a room. The official says it appears she suffered from blunt force trauma.

Wheeler said the initial fear of his step-daughter being abducted intensified after learning that she could now be with a man police believe is a murderer.

"I have no idea where she is. No idea," he said.

Wheeler added that he was blind-sided by a man he thought he knew and trusted.

"Mr. Tatum had been helping us out (at the shelter). He'd been showing us the ropes, showing us around, telling us when the activity room closed and what programs they have going on. He's a good man, I never got no bad vibes or a salty taste in my mouth about him," said Wheeler.

He and Relisha's mother trusted Tatum enough to allow their daughter to go home with him. That was weeks ago.

They haven't been seen since.

Shelter Janitor Kidnaps Homeless Girl, Kills Wife: Police
March 23, 2014


 
An Amber alert was issued for Rudd Wednesday, according to WJLA. On Thursday, Tatum's wife was found shot dead in a motel room that police searched as part of their investigation. Cops think Tatum pulled the trigger, and that he took the girl with him when he fled.

Police found Tatum's white 1976 GMC truck in Hyattsville, Md., on Thursday evening, but the suspect and the girl have yet to be found. The FBI has joined the search for Tatum, who is considered armed and dangerous, CBS News reported.

Administrators at Relisha's school contacted police after she failed to show up in class for several weeks. The girl's mother, Shamika Young, refused to file a missing persons report, according to WRC-TV.

In a tearful interview with the station, Young said she had known Tatum for years, and that she trusted him with her daughter.


"I didn’t see anything wrong with him. He’s a good guy," Young told WRC-TV Friday. "When [Relisha] did go out with him, he brought her back. He would take her shopping, took her to see Disney on Ice, he bought her a tablet for Christmas, took her out to eat with his granddaughter."

 

Critics of the case are outraged that it took so long for Relisha to be reported missing. Jamila Larson, executive director of a non-profit that works with homeless children in Washington, told WJLA that the girl's disappearance should have never happened.

“We’ve been trying to sound the alarm that the city needs to invest more services and more support and more eyes on these precious children to make sure their needs are being met and they’re not falling through the cracks," Lawson said.

D.C. shelter residents say janitor sought in girl’s disappearance gave gifts to children
March 23, 2014

 
Kahlil Malik Tatum, 51, is now the subject of a multistate search in connection with the disappearance of 8-year-old Relisha Tenau Rudd. Authorities say the girl’s parents, who live at the shelter, placed Relisha in Tatum’s care after he offered her a series of gifts.

 
Outside of his interactions with the residents at the shelter, little is known about Tatum and his wife, Andrea Denise Tatum, who was found dead of a gunshot wound Thursday.

Tatum was employed by the Community Partnership for the Prevention of Homelessness, a nonprofit organization that operates the shelter under contract with the city. Sue A. Marshall, its executive director, confirmed that Tatum worked for the group but did not know when he started working at the shelter and declined to comment further about him.

Court records indicate that Tatum, previously known as Karl Lee Tatum, was arrested and prosecuted several times since the early 1980s in the District and Virginia on breaking-and-entering and larceny charges, most recently in 2003.

In recent months, Tatum and his wife lived in an apartment in the Fairlawn section of Southeast Washington, not far from the Sousa Bridge. Neighbors there described the couple as quiet and unassuming.
 
Last June, Tatum was included among several plaintiffs in a lawsuit accusing the city of improperly denying prescription drug coverage to Medicaid recipients.

In the lawsuit, filed in federal court in the District, Tatum was said to be without “steady employment” and “relies on income from working odd jobs to pay for his living expenses.” It said Tatum needs medication to treat high blood pressure and had been on Medicaid since January 2012.

The lawsuit listed an address for Tatum at the Cedar Heights Apartments in Anacostia. A woman who answered the door there Sunday declined to comment on Tatum or his link to the missing girl.
 
“I know a janitor that has a baby by one of the people that live here,” said Robin Pinkney, 23, a mother of five who has lived at D.C. General since early February. “She met him while she was here. They flirt with girls.”

She shook her head. “I don’t trust no man around my kids, godfather or not,” she said. “I’m not giving my kids to any man.”

Pinkney said she has not heard the shelter staff say a word about Relisha’s disappearance. “If I hadn’t watched the news or come outside or my family hadn’t called me, I would have never known. . . . They should have had a meeting, and put out some rules — your kids can’t run around the halls unsupervised. It’s easy to snatch a kid from here.”

Since the news got out, some residents have talked about moving, the mothers said.

“People are saying they’re going to find somewhere to go — they don’t feel comfortable,” Pinkney said.

From reading the last two articles I've posted ^^^^, it appears to me Tatum was grooming not only children at the shelter, but also their parents so they would trust him with their child.    There should have been a meeting asap at the shelter when this was discovered.  I wonder how many other children and their families may have been a victim of Tatum?  Perhaps more information could be gleaned.  I hope LE is able to interview some of these folks before they become afraid and leave.  They may have a troubled past or some sort of circumstances in their personal lives they wouldn't want to share with LE.  They may not trust LE. 

I hope Relisha can be found and Tatum put behind bars.

FBI Releases Footage of Missing Relisha Rudd and Kahlil Tatum
Posted by Perry Stein on Mar. 25, 2014 at 11:12 pm

The Federal Bureau of Investigation released new footage earlier this evening showing missing 8-year-old Relisha Rudd walking down a hotel hallway with the man police suspect she is with, Kahlil Tatum, a janitor at the city homeless shelter where the girl was living. The footage was taken on Feb. 26—the day Relisha was reportedly last seen—in the Holiday Inn Express at 1917 Bladensburg Road NE and shows Relisha wearing pink boots and a Helly Hansen jacket with white stripes.

In a press release, the FBI asks the public to watch the video and see if they have seen Relisha or Tatum. The agency has offered a $25,000 reward for information that leads to the return of Relisha.
 

Relisha's mother says she last saw her daughter weeks ago when she allowed her to leave with Tatum. Tatum, however, never brought her back and when a school counselor noticed that Relisha hadn't attended class in several weeks, police started looking for her.

This story is so disturbing on so many levels. I can not imagine letting my child go HOME with someone when I did not know him well. I can not imagine not having a meltdown and calling the police immediately when she did not return as promised - might wait a few hours but not a few days or weeks. Makes me wonder what the parents got in exchange for ignoring what was going on?

You're feelings are very similar to mine, TBM.   

It's just my opinion, but I believe Tatum not only groomed Relisha and other young girls, but also their parents and it sounds like also the shelter Relisha was in as part of the the process of getting what he wanted.  The articles say he bought gifts for Relisha and other children. He bought a tablet for Relisha for Christmas, took her to Disney on ice etc, according to one of the article up thread.

Sometimes I see comments from poster that say how creepy a guy looks etc.  How does a pedophile look?  He (and yes she!) can look just like your neighbor, coach, minister etc.  He/she can be very charming, handsome etc.  There's no "P" on their forehead to warn us.

Charm: A pedophile's secret weapon

When a pedophile targets a child he would like to sexually molest, he grooms the child. He singles him or her out for attention, for special times together, for gifts and treats. He wants the child to like him, to trust him— to spend time alone with him.
Additionally, a pedophile will groom the community he lives in. If you are in that community, you are being targeted, as surely as the child this man aims to have sex with. Because he needs you, he needs all of us, to like him, to trust him, to protect and enable him to continue his horrific, hidden rampage.

Of course, the overwhelming majority of men who coach, minister, teach, or otherwise come in contact with our children, are genuinely good people who would not dream of harming any child. How are we to discern the good guys from the bad guys?

Dr. Salter advises us to take seriously any disclosure by a child who reports sexual abuse. Do not dismiss it as impossible. Watch for red flags, for those “uh-oh” moments when something doesn’t seem quite right. Like when a man singles out a child for attention and small gifts, attempts to separate the child from others with offers of trips to ball games, or sleepovers.

She recommends that we approach pedophilia the way medical personnel approach AIDS: They don’t think every patient they treat has AIDS, but the doctors and nurses protect themselves with gloves, and when they draw blood, they assume it’s possible that any patient could have AIDS, and could therefore be a danger to staff. So they use the same protective protocol with every patient, whether or not the patient looks like someone with AIDS.

Assume anyone could be a pedophile, and see to it that your child is not his victim.
Pedophiles usually go for the easy target: The fatherless child, the one whose parent drops him off at soccer practice, rather than sticking around and watching over him. The child whose parents can be conned into allowing the molester to spend time alone with him.

She advises us to think like a child molester. What situations are ideal for finding children to target? Schools, churches, scouting, mentoring programs, lessons of any kind such as music, martial arts, swimming. Those settings will attract child molesters.

Just as Willie Sutton is reported to have said, when asked why he robbed banks, “Because that’s where the money is,” child molesters gravitate to these settings because that’s where the children are.

They say it takes a village to raise a child. It also takes a village to protect a pedophile. It’s quite possible that a child molester is grooming you, whether you have a child or not.

Search for D.C. girl now called a 'recovery' effort
March 28, 2014

 
On March 2, police determined that Tatum bought some black 42-gallon trash bags, a shovel and lime or lye — a chemical sometimes used in the burying of bodies — in the District and was seen at the Kenilworth Aquatic Center and Park soon after those purchases, said Lanier.

"This trash bag thing really has me scared now," said Belinda Wheeler, Relisha's step-grandmother. "You're not going to do no lawnscaping, landscaping or whatever. Why you buying trash bags? Makes me think (Tatum is) trying to hide something. He's trying to hide something."

Tatum was seen at work and other places, between March 2nd and March 20, says Lanier, but Relisha was not with him.

D.C. police officers, search dogs and FBI agents combed an area of Kenilworth Park on Thursday looking for something in connection with the girl's disappearance.

"We're not making any assumptions but I think it would be prudent for us to search, and this is a very large area," Lanier said. "We cannot ignore the possibility that he may have killed her.

"To me, that sounds like she's dead," said Wheeler. "I don't want to think this, I want her brought back home, but once again, once you're under pressure you're liable to do anything," she added about Tatum, who Wheeler thinks may panic and hurt Relisha.

Relisha has been missing since Feb. 26. She had been living at the D.C. General homeless shelter in the District with her mother and stepfather. Tatum was the janitor at the shelter. An Amber Alert was issued for Relisha on March 20.

According to Lanier, Relisha's mother told officials that Tatum was her godfather and Relisha was with him with her permission. Relisha's mother added that there had been no issues in the past with Tatum.

The FBI on Wednesday placed Kahlil Tatum on its Most Wanted list for murder.

Following leads in the search for Tatum and Relisha, police found Tatum's wife, Andrea Denise Tatum, beaten to death in an Oxon Hill, Md., hotel room, and no sign of Tatum and the girl.
 
He has also been charged by the United States Attorney's Office in Maryland for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

Relisha Rudd Search: Authorities search Days Inn where Tatum believed to have stayed
By The Associated Press, Robert Lyles
March 29, 2014 - 04:29 pm

WASHINGTON (WJLA/AP) - D.C. police stormed the Gateway Days Inn on New York Avenue Friday night, a search warrant in hand for room 245.

Continue reading

The hotel's clerk told ABC7 off-camera that he checked 51-year-old Kahlil Tatum into room 245 on March 1, along with his Chevy SUV.

Tatum is now wanted for the murder of his wife, and for the March 1 disappearance of 8-year-old Relisha Rudd.

Recently, ABC7 uncovered an Instagram video of Relisha, from an account in her's mother name, Shamika Young.

The video is time-stamped March 1 - which is important, because Relisha's mother originally reported seeing her last three days earlier, before the 1st of March.

We now know that Tatum was at the Days Inn on March 1 - a place where, guests say, you can easily hide in plain sight.

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2014/03/body-in-dc-park-may-be-girls-suspected-kidnapper/


Mar 31, 2014 3:48pm


Police in the nation’s capital today said they are looking into whether a body found in a park is that of a man suspected of kidnapping an 8-year-old homeless girl weeks ago, a case full of mystery and missed opportunities that has gripped the Washington area.

Relisha Rudd was last seen weeks ago with a 51-year-old janitor, Kahlil Malik Tatum, who worked in the shelter her family called home. When the girl failed to show up at school, city authorities reached out to Rudd’s mother, who may have given Tatum initial permission to spend time with her daughter outside of the shelter, a law enforcement source said. There is still no sign of the girl.
