WTF News: Psycho Dad Rants on Facebook Before Killing Daughter, Himself

Oversharing on social media is a serious problem but some people’s cries for attention really do need to be taken seriously. Such was the case with Merrick McCoy, a Colorado man who posted on Facebook presumably about wanting his daughter’s mother back before killing the 19-month old child and then himself.

McCoy posted the following message:


Via NY Daily News:
Just before the cowardly McKoy, 22, allegedly shot his daughter in the head and killed her, he posted a photo of the two together and wrote several social media missives explaining his motive.

“I told u I can’t live without u lol u thought I was joking now me n Mia out this b—-,” he wrote on his Facebook page.

The little girl’s mother, Kimphone “Kim” Phanthavongsa, 21 had an active restraining order against McKoy following domestic violence incident. McKoy was charged with assault, burglary, trespassing and harrassment, ABC7 Denver reported.

The Monday shooting was his only way out, he reasoned in his final Facebook post.
“Don’t judge me had no choice,” he wrote.

Phanthavongsa, 21, frantically phoned police to report McKoy was in her Stuart St. apartment with a gun. The two had a heated argument and she stormed out on Monday.
Cops did not make it in time. McKoy shot the girl in the head and then turned the gun on himself. The father’s condition was not released.

Little Mia’s relatives painted McKoy as a jealous and possessive brute.

“He was the type to say, if you’re not with me, you can’t be with anybody else,” Smaly Chham, the girl’s cousin, told 9NEWS, a local NBC affiliate.

Little Mia had just hit had just hit a major milestone — her first steps — according to friends who knew the little girl.

“She just learned how to walk,” Vannatda Sivixai told ABC7 Denver. “What an angel. Whenever she smiled it was bright.”

    shit sad. how did he get to be alone with the child. Did she leave the child at her apartment alone with him?

    • @Real_SirJamie

      She woke up to him standing over her with a gun. A struggle ensued and she bolted out of the house. The article is kind of scattered. He posted those pics and that message while the cops were right outside.

      • Freebe Jackson

        damn the mom left the baby in the crib with him. I know she was scared but I would have been thinking of my child’s safety first. Sadly, had she not left to call the police she might not have lived. Stuck between a rock and a hard place on this one. I think i would have rather died trying to protect my child then live with my own thoughts of how things might have turned out if i didn’t leave.

    I understand the point of putting anything bad in the news to get traffic and clicks, but why is it we hardly ever have WTF good news? Is that too much to ask for? We have kids that are in the Mensa society, pre teens in major universities and HBCU’s, people in the military doing the damn thing, but this is all we get. I feel so sorry for the baby and the mother; my heart goes out to them, and I have nothing but anger for the father, and I can only hope he died slow. But back to what I was talking about in the beginning, can we get some WTF news that is uplifting and shows how we are improving as a people because I’m including everyone that follows hip hop as part of the culture, or are we just regulated to clicks and stream revenue?

  • All black men are rapists

    and these are the types of chumps that women love.they want that crazy thug nigga. although anyone can snap at any given time i blame the mother because she chose the dude and chose to have a baby with him probably thinking that having a baby would change him which never happens.

    • Escobar

      Yo, uhmm, homie… Your avatar ain’t really cuttin’ it. That shits nasty. Lol

      • last one

      • last one

        only a few smart ones

      • keylon jackson

        hostage???? go watch the news bitch left the kid over there on her own

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        watch the news or read the article…. she left after an argument, leaving the child. but to everyone blaming her…. she knew he would kick her ass but probably never that he would hurt their child.

  • Some fugg ‘chet!

    Advice : You can always work it later, if they are still alive.

    I had beef with my ex, and for the custody battle, had to take a mandatory class on parenting, which taught me to put the kids first, now me & my ex AND her husband are cool like that, and if we had gotten divorced 15yrs earlier…..we’d still be together now.

    I know it’s hard, but if you get past the relationship, and focus on being there as a support system, ‘chet will improve.

    • Immortal

      Damn man you make it sound like you getting the ex’s cakes again just from taking a class. Just jokin.

      • Hahahaaa.

      • Immortal

        Been wondering about that since RMfag finally left….or did he? hmmmmmm

    • pauleyPee

      You’re totally right. The best thing to do after a breakup is to decisively move on…………. Atleast when you do that and the withdrawals kick in, you’ll be in a state of mind to accept that she’s moving on, too. From there? Hell yeah she’s going to miss you, and you her… Especially if you have kids together. But definitely, the best thing to do is to move on until a better season.

      Trying to stay around and forcefully make a chick stay is like forcefully making her want to leave forever. It’s also like saying you’re not confident enough in yourself to find someone just as ______ as her.

      When I broke up with my daughter’s mother, I quickly found 4 or 5 chicks to sleep with… But when I found 2 or 3 beautiful women to keep around as friends with no expectations? I found my true ground to walk on… Needless to say, my daughter’s mother wasn’t too bad while we were broken up and we ended up back together within 6-7 months.

      Disclaimer: It was not easy to move on. On a scale of 1 to 10, it was about an 11. But it had to be done.

      • E.B. ( Extra Bunz ) definitely makes “moving on” easier!

  • jondubock

    that mustve been some good shiet…But, no chick is worth that….

    • johnblacksad

    • Arrie Mental Woodard

      log off!!!!

  • johnblacksad

    don’t mean to condemn the chick but why you get a restraining order and manage to leave the kid with him?

    R.I.P. Little girl… this is so sad!

    I hope he gets executed asap
