OXFORD MAN SENTENCED TO LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE FOR 2018 MURDER OF QUARRYVILLE MAN

Judge Patrick Carmody sentenced Hakeem Smith, 33, of Oxford, to life without parole for the Sept. 2018 murder of 31-year-old Samuel Algarin. Before the sentencing, the victim’s family showed a PowerPoint containing family pictures and a video made shortly before the victim was killed. In it, he told his family that he loved them.

A jury found the defendant guilty of 2nd-degree murder, robbery of a motor vehicle, and related offenses in Dec. 2021.

After spending the evening with his mother and two sons, the victim had picked up his car in a Lower Oxford parking lot to drive back to his mother’s house. While the victim was driving on Rt. 10, the defendant stopped the car, shot him in the chest, and then stole the car. Less than an hour after his mother and sons saw him alive, the victim’s body was found along Limestone Rd in W. Fallowfield Twp.

DA Deb Ryan said, “Hakeem Smith is getting the justice he deserves for so coldly & heartlessly taking the life of Samuel Algarin – all for a car. This is the kind of case that sticks with you forever because of its senselessness & how it tragically changed the lives of Mr. Algarin’s children & family. Knowing the defendant will never walk freely again will hopefully serve as justice for all who knew & loved Mr. Algarin.”

On 9/13/18, W. Fallowfield Twp Police responded to a report of an unconscious person on Limestone Rd. and found the victim, Samuel Algarin, with a gunshot wound to his chest; he was pronounced dead later that night.

Police interviewed the victim’s mother and learned that after the victim finished work, she and his two sons had spent the evening with him at a martial arts class and eating pizza at Pasquale’s Pizza in W. Fallowfield. She told investigators that she dropped the victim off at a Starbucks parking lot in Lower Oxford to retrieve his parked car. That was the last time his family saw him alive.

Investigators reviewed surveillance video from Turkey Hill in Parkesburg and saw the defendant filling the victim’s GMC Terrain with gas and buying a phone charger. The victim’s cell phone was not found with his body.

Westtown Police recovered the victim’s car on 9/16/18 in Westtown. Investigators discovered the defendant’s fingerprints inside the vehicle. The victim’s cell phone was discovered two miles from where his body was found. The cell phone also had the defendant’s fingerprints on it. When the defendant was arrested five days after the murder, police found the victim’s DNA on his pants.

Chester County Detectives, W. Fallowfield Twp & Oxford PDs handled the investigation. The prosecutors were Senior DDA Carlos Barraza and ADA Kaitlyn Macaulay.

WHAT IS CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE?

Child sexual abuse can be any of the following:

– Exhibitionism, or exposing oneself to a minor
– Touching intimate body parts
– R**e
– Obscene phone calls, text messages, or online interaction
– Producing, owning, or sharing pornographic images or movies of children
– S*x of any kind with a minor
– Inappropriate use of sexual language with a child
– S*x trafficking
– Any other sexual conduct that is harmful to a child’s mental, emotional, or physical welfare

While mandated reporters MUST report sexual abuse to CHILDLINE (1-800-932-0313), everyone has a moral obligation to make a report. By learning what constitutes child sexual abuse, we can protect children from sexual predators.

Take a free virtual Stewards of Children workshop during April to learn to recognize, react, and report child sexual abuse. Register here: https://shccpa.info/ or contact County Coordinator Katie Walters at [email protected].

April training dates: 4/4, 4/7, 4/12, 4/14, 4/15, 4/19, 4/21, 4/25, 4/27, 4/28
