Man calls 911, reports future murder of his child's mother

Posted November 24, 2014

— A Charlotte man was arrested by Raleigh police Monday for dialing 911 “to report the future murder of the mother of his child,” according to an arrest warrant.

Joshua Isaiah Cassell, of 5412 Eneidasue Drive in Charlotte, is also accused of giving police four false names, “causing a long delay during the investigation of a crime,” the warrant said.

Cassell is charged with misuse of 911 system and resisting a public officer. He remained in the Wake County jail Monday under a $2,000 bond.

    This young man certainly needs a mental evaluation. Meanwhile, this young lady should stay away from him and keep the child away as well for safety. But you know what, once he is out of jail she will allow him back into her life. She needs serious help for domestic violence herself and child.

    Really ? Is this some kind of "punked" episode ?

    Something's seriously wrong mentally with this guy. I hope he gets psychological treatment (from behind bars). Might be wise for him to forgo the weed from now on...

    Which of the four names he gave is the right one, if any? I hope his release terms also provide for ascertaining his true identity before he's let out.

    too much marijuana it looks, and a generally low level of intelligence.

    $2000 bond. He will kill someone soon. Remember his name.

    See, this is where a professional should realize this man has mental health issues that need to be treated instead of arrested and charged with a meaningless crime just to be released back to the public.

    You would think there would be other, more serious crimes he could have been charged with. And a higher bond required.
