When Farrah Carter, 15, was stabbed to death in her Miramar home 19 years ago, police called it one of the most horrific crime scenes they’d come across.
Nearly two decades later, someone has been charged with the murder.
“It’s very pleasing in a sense, but it’s still heartbreaking without her being here to see what her life would have been like, to see the children she would have, as a mother,” said Farrah’s mom Kim Battle.
The family said they felt some satisfaction knowing the 56-year-old Joseph Pollard has been accused of the killing. Miramar Police said new DNA technology linked him to the scene. He’s currently in prison, sent there just two months after the murder for a different crime.
“He’s serving a life sentence for kidnapping, robbery, and assault,” said Miramar Detective Joe Tomlin.
Tony Carter is Farrah’s dad.
“I miss my baby so much. I was at her gravesite on Friday and placed some flowers,” he said. “I told her they captured the guy that did this to her.”
