Tri-C Student Charged With Aggravated Murder
Allegedly Killed 3-Year-Old Son, Dumped Body in Garbage

A Cuyahoga Community College spokesman has confirmed Camilia Terry was currently enrolled as a student at the college when she was charged with aggravated murder in the death of her 3-year-old son Emilliano, on Wednesday, Nov. 28. The Voice News is the first to connect the murder suspect as a student at Tri-C.
Terry is accused of killing her son, then wrapping his remains in garbage bags and dropping it in a local garbage bin.
Hundreds gathered Wednesday evening for a candlelight vigil at Kossuth Park at the corner of E. 121st Street and William Avenue near Shaker Blvd.
Emilliano’s father was at the vigil in the arms of Bishop Prince J. Moutlry of In Touch for Christ Christian Center, Inc., located near the area.
“I didn’t know (the vigil) was going to be this big. I didn’t know this many people cared, so I’m grateful. It eases the pain a little bit,” said Shawn Dotson, Emilliano’s father.
Dotson said he will always remember his son by his smile and his eyes. Moving forward, he said he needs to step up to being the best father he can be for his other children, a two year old, and another child on the way.
A woman and her daughter from East Cleveland attended the vigil to pay their respect to the slain toddler.
“This is very hurting,” Winnie Marbury said. “I mean that’s a child. If it was too much for a parent to handle, they should have found someone to adopt him to. I think she was a little loony; anyone who kills the child that you birthed; something is wrong with you.”
Terry reported the child missing from Kossuth Park last Sunday. Police from several agencies combed the neighborhood since the 911 call from Terry. But on Monday, inconsistencies from Terry’s story differed from video surveillance and police arrested her.
On Tuesday, rumors began circulating in the Metro Business and Administration building that Terry was a student in some classes.
