2006 Child Abuse Victim Dies in 2016; Case Ruled a Homicide in 2017

Elanis Milfort of Bowie was a baby when she suffered a head injury in a child abuse case in 2006. Ten years later, at the age of 10, the young girl passed away.  A year after her death, the autopsy now reveals the manner was homicide.  

On June 8th, 2006, detectives were notified when Milfort, then six-months-old, was originally treated for a head trauma. Detectives arrested her father, Lionel Milfort, and charged him with child abuse.  He was released from prison in June of 2014.  
In March of 2016, the victim underwent surgery to treat a spinal condition that was a result of the head trauma in 2006. She suffered complications and passed away three days after surgery.
At the end of June, 2017, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for the District of Columbia ruled the death a homicide. All follow up investigation will be handled by our Homicide Cold Case unit.   The Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office will determine whether any additional charges will be filed in this case.

Homicide Unit detectives have taken over an investigation into a 2015 shooting now that the victim has died of his injuries. The victim was 22-year-old Delonio Richburg of Van Buren Street in Annapolis. At the time of the shooting two years ago, detectives did not believe the shooting was random. 

On July 26th, 2015, at about 1:30 am, patrol officers responded to the 3500 block of Hubbard Road for the report of a shooting. When they arrived, officers discovered two victims outside suffering from gunshot wounds. Both victims were transported to the hospital in critical condition but were later released.  On July 1st, 2017, Richburg was rushed to a hospital for emergency treatment where he died. An autopsy later revealed that he died from complications of the shooting.

The case was originally handled by the Regional Investigation Division and is now being handled by the Homicide Unit.

Detectives are still working to establish a motive and to identify the suspect(s) in this case. A reward of up to $25,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest and indictment in this case.
