Reporting Edgar Linares
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) - A Missouri man accused of killing three people inside a Brooklyn Park home will remain behind bars on a $6 million bond. On Friday Eddie Matthew Mosley, 34, made his initial court appearance after being indicted by a grand jury the day before.
Nearly a dozen family members of Delois Brown, 59, and her parents James Bolden, 83, and Clover Bolden, 81, sat in court. All three were shot and killed on April 9 at Brown’s in-home daycare on the 8100 block of College Park Avenue.
James Bolden, the brother and son of the victims, reflected on his family’s murderer.

“This person is dangerous. There’s something wrong in someone that can do something like this,” said Bolden.
According to the criminal complaint, Mosley, a St. Louis native, had another criminal complaint filed against him a few days before the murders. A girl identified as his niece accused him of first-degree criminal sexual conduct. The report says Mosley contacted the girl’s mother and told her to make the charge “go away”, but she refused.
Mosley then drove his truck to Minneapolis with a passenger and a bike to confront the girl. He knew the woman used to drop her daughter off at Brown’s in-home daycare, but she wasn’t there that day. The report says Mosley parked a few blocks away and rode a bike to Brown’s home. He entered the home then shot Brown and her parents.
In court, Mosely walked in shackled wearing orange jail scrubs. He sat behind glass making it difficult for the court audience to see him. Bolden said when he saw Mosley, he got emotional.
“I tried to see what he was feeling and thinking while he was there,” said Bolden. “It’s like looking at stone. I’m not reading a lot of emotion.”
On Thursday, a grand jury indicted him on nine counts of first-degree murder.
Mosley remains in the Hennepin County jail on a $6 million bond. He’s scheduled to back in court on September 10.
Bolden says now that formal charges have been filed, the family can begin moving forward. He and other family members plan to attend all of Mosley’s court appearances.
“We’re trying to make sure we’re doing what they would appreciate from us,” said Bolden. “And that’s being here every time the door opens and he comes out into the courtroom. It’s kind of like being there for my family, my mother, my father, my sister.”
