Michael Sykes

A mother and her 3 daughters were fatally stabbed by the woman's boyfriend at a hotel for the homeless in Staten Island on Wednesday.

A housekeeper found 26-year-old Rebecca Cutler bleeding from multiple stab wounds in a room at the Ramada Inn in Willowbrook, the NY Daily News reports.

Cutler's three daughters, 2-year-old Miracle, 1-year-old Ziana, and 5-month-old Maliyah, were also stabbed multiple times.

All 4 later died from their injuries at Staten Island University Hospital North, the Daily News reports.

Police are hunting for Cutler's boyfriend, Michael “Da Kid” Sykes, who stormed into the room around 10 a.m. Wednesday, and attacked the mom and her three minor children.

Michael Sykes was the father of Cutler's youngest child, Maliyah.

After the stabbings, Sykes called his mother and confessed his crimes. He indicated he wanted to kill himself.

“I’m literally sick to my stomach thinking about what happened,” Councilman Steve Matteo told the Daily News. “It’s tough to even digest what’s happened.”

“She was a good mom. She was always with her kids,” Shaquia Williams, 24, told the Daily News. Williams is also a resident at the homeless hotel.

“It’s sad, it’s tragic, she was cool people,” Williams said. “We hung out, I watched the kids for her a few times. She didn’t deserve it.”

Sykes' last known address is in Brooklyn.

    He looks like he's not right in the head ,what could the kids possibly have done to him ,an nothing she did could deserve such a faith. These psychopaths are a dime a dozen these days .

    I swear I don't understand killing innocent kids especially your own. Folks are sick.

  • RobKardashianLovesChocolate

    I'm sure he's been beating on her and finally he has killed her.
    Ladies, if a man even pushes you.... Get out! He has control issues and wants somebody he can intimidate and use as his punching bag.

  • SummerBaby

    This is so sad! Just because you have a baby for someone doesn't mean you have to stay with them if things go sour.

  • RobKardashianLovesChocolate

    He probably stalked her.

  • SummerBaby

    True indeed

  • LeBrick James

    I agree. If he hits you one time, walk away.
    If more women did that, it would save many lives every year.

  • RobKardashianLovesChocolate

    And the thing is had she killed him first in self defense ( depending on the laws in her state) she would've been arrested and he would've been made a martyr.

    In my limited experience it begins with verbal abuse and disrespect. The first time he comes out of his mouth sideways it is over!

  • RobKardashianLovesChocolate

    Some women think when a man shows any kind of emotion even hitting them it means he loves them. I lost a friend because I pulled out a butcher knife on her baby father for beating her up in the snow while she was pregnant. I came running out of her house at him with a butcher knife ... She turned on me later for it.

    Especially if its in public.
    How I see it, if he'll disrespect his woman in public he usually has no problem hitting her in private.

    "She was a good mom"....obviously not if she didnt have sense enough to not have dealings with this fool.

  • RobKardashianLovesChocolate

    Don't blame the victim. He probably stalked her to the ends of the earth.

  • Ni Ni

    I definitely blame him for killing her but She laid down with. People need to make better choices. She chose to have this fool in her life and look what happened.

  • God’s child to the end

    Exactly...

  • RobKardashianLovesChocolate

    There are situations where 20 years later people snap out of the blue. You never know what a person may do one day. We don't know the whole entire story. We don't know if she came from an abusive household herself and thought his abuse was normal until he killed her.

  • Ni Ni

    No excuses

  • Tammie Reed

    This is so sad to read, I feel so bad for this young mom and her kids may they rest in peace. So many women rather have a piece of a man than to be alone, especially when its an abusive relationship. I think I read that she was homeless too? The last thing I would be trying to do is date someone and have kids and especially if I didn't have a safe environment to raise them but thats just my thinking though!

    I always think about the women over in those third world countries too that they show with their kids dying in their arms with flies all around them. I always think, if you see all the suffering around you and babies dying daily, why are you having sex too instead of trying to get out of the situation? Then I think again, I'm not over there to understand their mind set. Sad all the way around.

    I agree with you (now) but I was also there at a point in my life.
    When you have a crazy nikka, welfare & WIC appointments, car is running bad, light bill due, need to pay mom back, babysitter is wishy washy....logically no child should come into that. But the reality is, sometimes you want comfort. And comfort, attention, a listening ear, etc is offered by snakes all the time.
    It is hard to be strong when your whole life is making you weak. To this day I am amazed I had the wherewithal to keep a job and always pay the rent. I thank God for delivering me out of that and I try to never forget how that cycle of despair goes.
    May she and her babies rest in peace.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Tell me again how anybody's "dating" when you're living in a shelter/hotel? This is such a tragic story, but more proof why not every person able to have kids 'should.' I'm accepting that people young and old aren't wrapped too tight.

    Funny to read baby this, honey that, snickums, etc on their pics on FB. Tell me again how we got here today? They seem young. He looks all of 21-22, like he's still carrying his husky weight.

    “She was a good mom. She was always with her kids,”

    No. She wasn't a "good mom." A good mother wouldn't have children she can't take care of. A good mother knows how to protect herself and her child.

    This is precisely the reason people don't want rehab centers, drug clinics, and homeless shelters in their neighborhoods. After this story, before I check into a hotel, I'm going to ask them if there are any homeless people staying there!

    Cutler's foolishness not only cost her, her life and the lives of her children, her stupidity resulted in the other homeless people being evicted from the hotel! Ugh!!!!!!!

    Exactly, because homeless also equals undateable.

    You have to be a special brand of evil to stab BABIES. What gutter was this rat raised in? These women need to stop fawking with losers. I can look at him and tell he ain't worth a damn. Eyes do not lie. He looks crazy and slow. God rest her soul and those three beautiful babies. I am so livid.

  • WHYDFMLII

    Yep it is bird logic which is why I can't stand Phaedra Parks, Tamar, Porsha, Tiny and Kandi. All those simple bishes live by that motto that a piece of a man is better than no man.

    Those women in those countries have no choice. Life is bad and they have no education so they just screw. They also have no means to prevent pregnancy. There is no excuse for it in America though. If you are in a bad situation don't make it worse. The clinic gives out birth control and condoms as most adults are going to have sex regardless of life situations.

  • sheik

    This is so sad.... I hope when they find him, the stab him, and the pour salt in his wounds and watch him die in pain or I hope, the streets find him and do what they do. You don't hurt babies!

  • WHYDFMLII

    He sounds just like OJ with calling for his mommy after doing some evil shat. What is with these black men and reverting to childlike behavior? Is this a result of cuddling and never holding them responsible for their terrible actions?

  • SugeAveryLemonade

    I find it amazing that people are so quick to blame the woman for "choosing" the wrong partner. There is a deep sickness in society that condemns women for choosing violent...but neglecting to question why men have been violent for millenniums.Instead of questioning women, start studying why the XY chromosome is so predisposed towards violence. So predisposed that people don't even question it anymore. Like men are "supposed" to be violent. And women should "know better". Instead of blaming women, who have an extremely low rate of violent behavior, start studying men and why societies across the Earth deem it okay to excuse men acting like violent chimpanzees.

  • M1AM1DADE

    The idea of swift justice is often lost in death penalty cases. Death Penalty = Oversight Protection + Automatic Stay of Execution. Appeals may take between 6 to 25 years, but there are always exceptions. A general population prisoner costs approximately 25K per year. Whereas it costs approximately $45 - 90K per year to house an inmate on death row in additional costs to the prosecution and defense that doesn’t take into account the cost of court personnel (jurors, experts etc).
    Housing a death row inmate for 1 year can costs 2-3 times the average American Family income. Now times that by 10 - 15, some 2 parent households will never make that in their entire working careers. Taxpayers pay more into the prison systems than their own child(ren) education fund.

    Let's not forget our place ladies. Every man doesn't have the mighty control we think. Don't push him and pester him or bully him because you want answers you already know but want to hear so he can reveal to you that animal you want to see. Before you get bitten by that wolf he show you those teeth. Learn to back the fck off. A man is a human being first. His character comes much later.

I could have been that poor woman. My babies could have been hers. My own mother didn't understand what I was going through. She thought I was chasing my children's father. He was chasing me! I couldn't shake him. And he played on the fact that I wanted a nuclear family. From tears, to quality time, to silence, to anger & threats, to gifts. I have to let someone know it's not a single decision that puts you there and it's a series of decisions that gets you out. Some don't make it. :-(

    As a single woman who has spent her share of nights at home watching re-runs of the Jefferson, I will say some WOMAN ARE GOING TO HAVE TO LEARN TO LIVE WITHOUT A MAN IN YOUR LIFE!! Seriously, we need to be more selective about who we let into our homes and our bodies. I have read too many stories like this where women have let these different jerks into there lives and the men come in and abuse/kill their children. It happened in my city a couple of years ago. Woman moved the man in after a few months of dating, come to find out he was schizophrenic and stabbed her two kids to death while she was at work. Learn to be alone. It really aint that bad, people!! #IGOTJESUS

  • yelpforhelp

    It always pisses me off when they can successfully murder innocent people, but fail to seal deal on their own self. All of them snap back then. My advice is if your life is so miserable or someone else is soooooo f^cked up you can't imagine them living-kill yourself. That way you ain't got to know nothing.
