ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5

murders of channon christian and christopher newsom

Okay kiddo, let me try to explain this to you really simply. Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom were two people who were murdered in 2007 in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Basically, some really bad people broke into their home and kidnapped them. They drove them to a nearby rental house where they were held captive for a few hours. During this time, the bad guys did really terrible things to Channon and Christopher. They hurt them, tortured them, and eventually killed them.

It was a really sad and scary thing that happened, and lots of people were really upset about it. The police worked really hard to find the people who did this, and eventually they caught them.

The people who were responsible for the murders were punished by the justice system, and they are now locked up so they can't hurt anyone else. It's important to remember that no one deserves to be treated the way that Channon and Christopher were treated, and it's everyone's job to try to stop things like this from happening in the future.
