Police investigating Eric Banks Jr.

A Baltimore police officer has been charged with killing his 15-year-old stepson. Eric Banks Jr., 34, was served an arrest warrant Tuesday for first-degree murder, second-degree murder, and child abuse in the first degree for allegedly taking the life of Dasan Jones, online Maryland records show.

Banks is the officer previously accused of hiding the teenager’s body in a wall at his home in Anne Arundel County. From police:

On Tuesday, July 6, 2021, at approximately 4:56 p.m., Anne Arundel County Police met with a complainant regarding a child custody dispute. A mother was in the area to pick up her teenage son who had been with the stepfather. Initially officers were told by the stepfather the fifteen year old teenager left the residence leaving his belongings behind. Officers responded to the residence located in the 1400 block of Stoney Point Way, Curtis Bay, Maryland to conduct a check on the welfare of the teenager. Upon arrival, officers discovered the teenager unresponsive in an upstairs room.

California shifts police shooting probes to attorney general

  California shifts police shooting probes to attorney general SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — New protocols announced Wednesday by California Attorney General Rob Bonta seek to provide more transparency around one of the most emotional and disturbing areas of policing: the fatal shooting of an unarmed civilian. Investigations into such cases have previously been handled by the local police agency involved, with local district attorneys deciding whether the shootings were legally justified.

Police found Jones’ body in a “hole in the wall with a white cover leaning on it,” according to charging documents obtained by The Baltimore Sun. Banks asked to kiss his children, and requested that his handcuffs be adjusted, cops said. Things allegedly escalated with him trying to disarm an arresting officer and repeating “you’re gonna have to end this.” He was originally arrested for charges including assault and resisting arrest.

Reported court records make clear that Banks’ relationship with Jones’ mother was falling apart. He filed for a protective order against her in May, claiming she threatened and made false allegations against him, according to the Sun. He withdrew that in two days, but she filed for her own protective order in late June, claiming he was a stalking her. A judge denied this application. She filed for another on July 6, hours before her son was found dead. She alleged that Banks took Jones’ phone and texted her from it. She claimed to see Banks watching her outside of a hotel she was at.

Baltimore Cop Stashed 15-Year-Old Stepson’s Body in Wall: Prosecutor

  Baltimore Cop Stashed 15-Year-Old Stepson’s Body in Wall: Prosecutor A Baltimore police officer is facing a slew of charges after prosecutors say the body of his teenage stepson was found “secreted” in a wall in his home and he tried to steal a fellow officer’s gun as authorities made the grisly discovery. The chaotic chain of events kicked off on Tuesday, when prosecutors say Anne Arundel County police officers went to the home of Baltimore police officer Eric G. Banks Jr. to inquire about the whereabouts of his 15-year-old stepson, Dasan Jones. After first claiming the teen wasn’t home, Banks gave the officers permission to search the house, The Baltimore Sun reports, citing court documents.

Banks lawyer Warren Brown has told the Baltimore Sun that his client said he discovered Dasan dead in a bathtub and that he thought the teenager had died by suicide. The attorney did not immediately respond to a Law&Crime request for comment.

Banks was reportedly already suspended from the Balitmore Police Department when Jones’ body was found. Officers did not explain why he was suspended.

“We don’t discuss ongoing cases that are being investigated by our internal affairs investigation office,” wrote Detective Vernon Davis, a spokesman, in an email to Law&Crime.

He said that Banks is now suspended without pay.

“The Baltimore Police Department is aware of an ongoing investigation involving one of our members in Anne Arundel County,” Davis said. “The member’s police powers were previously suspended and now they will be suspended without pay, while this current case is investigated by the Anne Arundel County Police Department.”

Dasan’s funeral was held Monday.

“If you needed help with an assignment or something, he would always be willing to help out,” friend Erika DiDonato said a Baltimore Sun report published Tuesday. “When he would come into class, I remember he would always be smiling and coming over to me and the friends I sat with and making jokes.”

A GoFundMe campaign by someone who said she went to school with Dasan raised more than $12,000 of a $10,000 goal as of Wednesday.
