PITTSBURGH — When helping a family member goes terribly wrong. Kareef Easington was thrown in the slammer after he murdered his cousin, 39-year-old Megan Campbell, and her 7-year-old daughter Lyla. The double femicide transpired February 15th around 10 a.m. at Megan’s apartment in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. According to police reports, Kareef was jettisoned from his girlfriend’s house so he went to live with Megan in lieu of being homeless. As months flew by, Megan challenged Kareef to get off his lazy ass and get a job. But when she threatened to evict him, Kareef pulled out a gun and opened fire — killing Megan and Lyla. Kareef, 35, was arrested after a 5-day manhunt. He’s charged with two counts of criminal homicide and tampering with evidence. Megan told a friend Kareef tried to strangle her the day before.

Neighbors also heard her screaming but did nothing.

Social media reaction was unforgiving. One reader wrote, “Lowlife, good-for-nothing monster killed someone giving him shelter and to murder an innocent child… hope he rots in prison.🤬😠💔” Another chimed in with, “That’s why I’m not letting no one move in with me. I’ll help if I can. But no moving in.” A third person added, “If the white part of a man’s eyes are yellow or red, just run.”

Megan was a nursing home director.

Kareef once served in the army.

Do you think PTSD/mental illness played a factor?

Should we succor family members in need?

  1. Wow this is so so sad….. I let a cuzin and her son stay with me before with the goal to find her a spot quickly…. I mean they flipped my house even more upside down but then got mad that i actually found her a place to live and was letting her leave. That was the goal from the gate. She was combative with family period n i didnt now how much sheesh….

  2. SMH another beautiful black woman and child killed by another black person!! When is going to stop!! So sad!!

  3. It’s so sad that you can’t help anyone anymore because you don’t know their triggers are and what they will do with those triggers. Ladies and Gentlemen do not let anyone in your house period it’s not you being mean but it is protecting yourself and establishing boundaries! I feel so sad for the victims and families because all she tried to do is help him! They need to give him life!

  4. There were times in the past where men (mostly family) tried to ease their way into my home and the answer was NOPE!!! I don’t trust sleeping around no one but my child✌🏾🙏🏾. This is horribly sad and disgusting and evil. Praying for the victims and their family members 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾❤️‍🩹❤️‍🩹❤️‍🩹❤️‍🩹❤️‍🩹.

  5. She must have found out the same thing the girlfriend found out about this demon😢

  6. Don’t do it! Family members are the main ones that hurt you most. They made their decisions let them deal with it. They will figure it out like the other billions of people that lived before them and presently. 🙏

  7. Smh this why you can’t be there for everybody and have to love some people from a distance😪

  8. She called a friend to report that he strangled her ??? The neighbor heard the girl scream and didn’t report ???

  9. The mother made poor choices with this fool she put her daughter in harms way!


  11. My people perish for the lack of knowledge. We have to be mindful of the things we know and move quickly on the info! Use your head knowledge and not your heart. The heart is deceiving at times.

  12. I’m so sorry and not being mean but knowing upfront this person has some physiological issues, no way are we living under the same roof…especially with my child!! And I don’t care who you are, it ain’t happening!

  13. To k*ll a little girl. Pure evil and no mental health can excuse that behavior.

  14. Had no place to live but possed a gun😫…Sincere Condolences to the Family of the murdered mother and child…Peace and Blessings to everyone…

  15. He’s a grown man. He shouldn’t have to live with a single mother.

  16. Why do these abusive men always go shack up with women & children? They are always trying to move in with a woman. How come men don’t go stay with a male friend or family member? Always preying on woman & children.

  17. Some families be having more than familial relationships. Sounds like this is what was going on.

  18. She ignored all the Warnings and let this A Strange Cousin live with her and her daughter not One Man around not even the Father. Smh Got to be More careful

  19. I will help you from a distance but I don’t care, you are not staying with me. Heck you won’t even know where I live, cause I don’t want you showing up out the blue. I never understood why people feel the need to go all out for family. People might think I’m funny acting but oh well, keep thinking it. Praying for this family🙏

  20. Piece of TRASH!!! I can’t even believe it! A good soul helping her sorry azz cousin!

  21. black women need to stop trying to save these men..
    family or no family. 🕊🕊

  22. Beautiful seven year old girl gone to heaven where she will be saved by the lord almighty for ever 🙏

  23. You can’t even help these demonic ass men.. Whether they are family, friends, or associates…Stay thee fuck far away from me… This is so sad…He killed a beautiful woman and her daughter…R.i.p. beautiful Queen’s…

  24. Man I’m sick of this shit that fool better get the DEATH penalty killing kids should be considered 2 murders you just took her from her adult life 🙏🏾🙏🏾💔💔🕊️🕊️

  25. BW stop letting these males into your homes family or not. They don’t care about you and will toe tag you without a second thought. Nothing you do for them is ever enough. Some BMW is hiding him. Other men, shelters and streets are were these men belong. It’s not a women’s job to house these men!

  26. Hell no, Where was his mama at? Never let a man around you and your children’s personal space. I dont care if they are family! I hope she never left her baby alone with him!!!

  27. All in the Bible God warns us of this where your own family members will become your enemies…i do not care who anyone is I will never let anyone visit in my apartment I have a son to protect never mind moving someone in …people are not of flesh and blood these day !!!

  28. This is exactly why his ass would have stayed on the streets, if he asked me…I don’t give a dam about his mental issues…He’s an adult so he gotta take care of that..

  29. never help these grown bandits let him go homeless or to jail or to hell. I advise all black women to stop this

  30. She had no business allowing a man to come live with her and her daughter, especially one that have been in the army, knowing that a lot of them have mental issues that man should’ve never been there. This is so sad.

  31. My cousin called me out the blue needing a place to stay. Before I could tell him yes, he asked if there were local drug dealers he could rob. I hung up before answering either question.

  32. No good deed goes unpunished, don’t help people, period! It does not benefit you in the end.
