Amariah C. Emery

Age 10

New Castle, Pennsylvania

On her T-shirt, a peace sign

She had pink-painted nails and wore a yellow T-shirt in a photo holding up the “peace” sign.

She was described as an exceptional student. After school, the fifth-grader would attend the C.A.N.E.S club at George Washington Intermediate and help her friends with their homework.

On Tuesday morning, Oct. 16, 2018, police were called to a two-story yellow home in New Castle, Pennsylvania, where Amariah C. Emery, 10, was found killed alongside her mother, Nichole Pumphrey, and Lawrence Cannon in a triple homicide.
