GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The Grand Rapids Police Department is asking for the public’s help to find a man wanted for questioning in the of killing a woman and her 2-year-old grandson in January.
GRPD says Norman Muhammad Jr., 43, is also wanted for questioning in the deaths of 46-year-old Germaine Bulloch-Brown and her grandson, 2-year-old King Talbert.
The two were shot and killed Jan. 17 at Brown’s home in the 200 block of Montgomery Street, near Jefferson Avenue. Brown’s husband, Darrell Brown, discovered their bodies. Since then, all Darrell brown has wanted is justice.
“Tell the police what’s going on, if you see the guy,” he said. “Like they say, he’s a person of interest and we would like to catch him as soon as possible.”
People familiar with the investigation say Mohammad and Germaine Brown previously had a relationship that revolved around drugs and that he had threatened her when the relationship ended. But police have not charged Mohammad in relationship to the double homicide, nor have they even described him as a suspect.
“Germaine was a beautiful person and she didn’t deserve, or my grandson deserve what happened,” Brown said.
Michigan State Police records show Muhammad has a criminal record dating back to 1992, with convictions for fleeing police, driving on a suspended or revoked license, felony assault and possession of narcotics. In 2003, he pleaded guilty to assault with intent to commit murder in a Kent County case from the previous year and was sentenced to between 15 and 50 years in prison. He was released from prison in the fall of 2017.
