Joshua Burgess and Zaria Burgess

Charlotte Alerts

A father has to be stupid, idiotic, and sick to rape and kill his own daughter.

Countless fathers in america fight for custody of their kids everyday. The crime that this father committed is a slap in the face to every parent in America.

Joshua Burgess, 32, raped and brutally killed his 15-year-old daughter identified as Zaria Burgess on Hampton Meadows Road in Union County, NC on August 18, 2019.

Burgess confessed to his crime after walking into a police station on his own free will, before Zaria's murder was made known. Burgess was calm and showed no emotion while giving specific details about the rape and murder of his daughter Zaria.

For unknown demonic reasons Burgess raped Zaria and then stabbed her in the neck. Zaria died at the crime scene.

Burgess was charged with murder, one count of Statutory Rape of a Person 15 Years of Age or Younger, First Degree Statutory Sex Offense, First Degree Kidnapping and First Degree Sexual Exploitation of a Minor.

In a written statement a Union County official said:

“The details of this murder are indescribable. Every officer and detective involved in this case is feeling the effects of what happened to this child. There is no logical answer to explain why this man did what he is accused of doing. Our hearts and prayers are with Zaria’s mom and her family."

Why isn't anyone asking why the title of this article is "WHITE MAN RAPES & KILLS HIS OWN TEENAGE DAUGHTER IN NORTH CAROLINA HOME" without offering any evidence or suggesting this was a racially motivated killing? This story is sad enough without this outlet using the death of a beautiful little girl to race bait? What does him being white have to do with the story? If it does have something to do with the story why wasn't it in the story?


Oh my God this is terrible. Who does that.


They love to call black people GOONS, MONKEYS, and anything RACIST they can pull out of their a**es, but they rape and kill their own kids. I hope he get raped in prison and please for the sake of that child do not let him kill himself in in jail or prison. I'm so sure there is someone in there is has not a thing to lose that won't mind killing him. He need to suffer the same way or worse like his own child did. So come again when yall refer to black people as anything because are the MONKEYS and GOONS now? White people have always put black people down but was the main ones always having incest with their family members, killing family for life insurance, having children and giving them horrible diseases then need a sponsor to help the child because the child was tainted with that bad incest blood. But black people goons...lofl!!!


Extremely tragic and horrific. Can't imagine what this baby girl was feeling as her father was raping and then killing her....horrific. Just horrific.
