An informant has managed to obtain a hair sample from a mother that has led to the arrest of Michelle Johnson and the childs stepfather, Harrell
Johnson, for murder. The child has been identified as Erica Marie Green, 4 years old, and was murdered in 2001 with her head decapitated and
subsequently dumped near an intersection. It is believed the child died after a severe beating by Harrell Johnson left the child unconscious. The
couple left her in that state for two days and did not get medical attention for her due to both having arrest warrants out. When the child died the
couple took her to a parking lot and Harrell Johnson then cut off her head with hedge cutters.
MUSKOGEE, Okla. - The tipster who helped crack the case of a beheaded 4-year-old girl went to police with his suspicions nearly a year ago and
recently tricked the child's mother into providing a hair sample that he taped to a photograph and mailed to Kansas City, a community activist said
Police would not comment on what role the hair sample may have played in the arrests of Michelle M. Johnson, 30, and Harrell Johnson, 25, the girl's
stepfather. The two agreed Friday to be returned to Kansas City to face murder charges.
A $33,000 reward is being offered in the case, but Washington said the tipster was not influenced by the money.
"He said he just wanted to right a wrong," Washington said.

The informant in the case had provided information to police on numerous occasion since the crime. Due to the information being incomplete the police
were at a standstill until he sent the police a hair sample obtained by tricking the mother saying that he wanted her hair to place in a bible at the
23rd psalm to bring her luck.
It is believed that police had visted the Johnson home previously during the investigation and Michelle Johnson at that time reported to them that she
had seen a suspicious man in the neighborhood.
It is sad when the one person in life you should be able to trust is the one person that assists to take away the life they gave you.
