Detroit, Michigan’s Caleb Harris, Lashon Marshall, Aaron Benson killed by 2 boys known to them: Police


Lashon Marshall, 28, is the mother of Caleb Harris, 5, and the girlfriend of Aaron Benson, 32. The three were found dead inside their house in Detroit, Michigan, United States by a concerned family member of Benson who stopped by at around 5:00 p.m. on February 20, 2022 after not hearing from him in about a week.

Harris was shot multiple times in the face. His body was found on the floor of his bedroom.

Details about how Marshall and Benson were killed have yet to be released. The back door of their house had been kicked in.


After receiving tips from the community, the Detroit Police Department identified two boys aged 17 and 16 as the suspects. The two suspects, whose name were not released, were known to the victims, according to the department.

The department believes Benson, Marshall and Harris were murdered before February 20, 2022. The department is aware of the motive for the murders but has yet to announce it.

On February 21, 2022, the two suspects were arrested. They were remanded to the Wayne County Juvenile Detention Facility in Detroit.


Harris is a relative of Sherry Gay-Dagnogo, 55, who served as Michigan representative from 2015 to 2020. She told Fox 2 Detroit, “There is one thing to even a score or have issues with an adult but a child? A child is off-limits.”

“You could have just left my grandson there alone,” the publication quoted Harris’s paternal grandmother Shalesa Floyd as saying. “I would have come get him. He could have grown up to be anything he wanted.”

“He’s our future,” Floyd said of Harris. “He was our future. Why would you take my grandson from me?”

The biological father of Harris lives outside Michigan. According to Floyd, the father is devastated by the news.
