Police say Nixson, Barker, and a third teen boy, 16-year-old Brendon Washington, then decided to kill their conspirator, Carrielle Conn, to prevent her from talking about the crime. Carrielle Conn's dead body was found on October 16th 2011 near the railroad tracks in the 900 block of Cleveland Avenue two days after the murder of Rudell Englemon.
