BALTIMORE — Cries of pain and screams of anger from a mother gripping the fact that she'll never see her baby boy again filled Ellicott Drive in Southwest Baltimore Thursday night.

15-year-old Carlos Liverpool Jr. was dead by the time police found him in the rear of a house.

He never came home, and on Friday his family and police were knocking on doors and handing out fliers to help find his killer.

“They don’t know how much that it took my heart out of my chest; they don’t understand,” Henderson said.

It was hard for her to see the place where her son Carlos Liverpool Jr. was found, but she found the strength for him

“Don’t let this be a cold case please, that’s all I’m asking,” said Henderson. "Please don’t let it be a cold case. I don’t wanna walk around with hatred in my heart. I don’t want to feel that way, I don’t want this child’s mother to feel the way I feel. This pain is deep, it’s deep. I’m angry. I’m angry, I don’t want nobody to have to go through this Jesus.”

Liverpool Jr. had ambitions.

He was a star on the basketball court.

He was excited to head to high school and get his working papers.

“We shared so many things together,” Henderson said. “He told me he said, 'Ma, you don’t have to take care of me no more because I’ll be able to get a job in October.' I said, 'I’m going to always take care of you because you’re my child.'”

His cousin Natasha Henderson said he had a great heart.

“It’s sad that he was just discarded like a piece of living trash, like he meant nothing,” Natasha said. “You shouldn’t just take someone’s life, it means nothing no matter who they are.”

His cousin was looking forward to taking Liverpoole on vacation this summer.

Now she is walking with family trying to find the killer.

“I feel for the person who did this family as well because they’re going to be effected by whatever the outcome is from this,” Natasha said.

He was found Monday morning around 8 a.m. behind 1081 Ellicott Drive.

The fliers are out, Metro Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for any information that leads to an arrest.

“I’m not going to get to hear, 'I love you no more,'” said Henderson. “I’m not going to hear 'ma,' and I say 'what.' 'Oh I just wanted to know where you was at.' These are the small things that you hold so dear and you robbed me of it.”
