Adam Montgomery Convicted of Murdering Five-Year-Old Harmony in Horrific 2019 Case

Adam Montgomery Convicted of Murdering Five-Year-Old Harmony in Horrific 2019 Case

In a chilling case that unfolded during a two-week trial, Adam Montgomery, a 34-year-old father from New Hampshire, has been found guilty of the second-degree murder and abuse of his five-year-old daughter, Harmony.

The jury deliberated for six hours before reaching a verdict, holding Montgomery accountable for the heinous crime committed in December 2019.

Violent Assault and Tragic Outcome: The Disturbing Incident

The court learned that Montgomery viciously attacked Harmony, who was blind in one eye, after she had a bathroom accident while sleeping in the car.

Montgomery, along with his wife Kayla, callously took opioids and consumed fast food as the helpless child succumbed to her injuries in the backseat.

Harmony’s lifeless body was then concealed for years, raising the gravity of the case.

Guilty Verdict and Potential Life Sentence: Montgomery’s Fate

The guilty verdict includes charges of second-degree murder, abuse of a corpse, second-degree assault, falsifying physical evidence, and tampering with witnesses and informants.

Montgomery now faces life imprisonment with no chance of parole. The sentencing is scheduled for a later date.

The disturbing aspect is that Harmony’s body, tragically, has yet to be recovered, and the incident was only reported years after its occurrence.

Heart-Wrenching Reactions: Mother’s Outrage and Adoptive Parents’ Grief

Harmony’s mother, Crystal Sorey, who did not have custody of her daughter, expressed her disdain for Montgomery, labeling him a ‘coward.’ Sorey condemned Montgomery’s actions, emphasizing his desire for control.

The adoptive parents of Harmony’s brother, Blair and Johnathon Miller, also shared their grief, describing the day as one that added to the pain surrounding the little girl who never had a chance.

Prosecutors Detail Disturbing Actions: Montgomery’s Efforts to Conceal the Crime

During the trial, prosecutors outlined how Montgomery meticulously moved Harmony’s body from one location to another, including a friend’s car trunk, a cooler in a hallway, a homeless shelter ceiling vent, and an apartment freezer.

The tragic details included Montgomery’s estranged wife, Kayla, confirming the use of a tote bag from a hospital maternity ward to store the body.

The disposal ultimately occurred in early March 2020 with a rented moving truck, though the whereabouts of Harmony’s body remain unknown.

Prosecutor’s Condemnation: Montgomery Labeled an ‘Enraged Titan’

Prosecutor Ben Agati condemned Montgomery as an ‘enraged titan,’ emphasizing that he was not a loving father but a violent individual.

Agati painted a grim picture of the day Harmony lost her life, revealing Montgomery’s rage over a bathroom accident as the catalyst for the fatal punch.

Harmony’s disappearance went unnoticed until 2022 when her mother discovered she had never been enrolled in school, leading to a missing person report filed by Manchester police.

System Failure: Child Welfare Negligence

A Massachusetts watchdog agency later revealed that the state’s child welfare system failed to prioritize Harmony’s ‘needs, well-being, and safety’ when placing her in her father’s care.

This disturbing case sheds light on systemic failures that allowed such a tragedy to occur, sparking discussions about the importance of safeguarding vulnerable children from potential harm.
