Kelley Alert Sought In Pregnant Texas Mom’s Brutal Slaying Case: Activist Still Seeking Justice For D’Lisa Kelley’s 2014 Killing In Dallas

Her story is as tragic as it is Bizarre. The sudden disappearance of D’Lisa M. Kelley on March 7, 2014 was just the tip of the iceburg that culminated in the horrific discovery of the pregnant mother of a one year old son, body having been found inside an abandoned Dallas home a week after she disappeared. D’Lisa had last been seen leaving her grandmother’s house to attend the wake of a friend who died.

Prior to her going missing her sister received a call from her that she believes D’Lisa may have accidentally made. She hears what can only be described has her sister being in complete distress, as she is overheard involved in a conflict within an unknown man. D’Lisa is heard screaming “Stop, stop, get off of me.” Those cries are then followed by the voice of a man who says “Shut up! Oh you want to be hardheaded.” The sister said the call abruptly ended after one minute and eleven seconds. Then she says she received a text from D’Lisa saying “I’ll call you in a minute.” That call never came and was the last contact the woman’s family received from her.

During a Headline News (HLN) broadcast, the sister gave an updated account of the communication she had received from D’Lisa. She told Jane Mitchell that she also received a text from D’Lisa saying “He thought that I was with another dude.” The prime-time news host highlighted during the broadcast that its not known if D’Lisa actually made that particular text, or whether someone else sent the communication. That’s a portion of this mysterious case that’s been debated, primarily because police have interviewed witnesses who have stated they saw D’Lisa at local businesses days after she reportedly had last been seen alive.

The woman’s family told police that she wasn’t known to simply stay away and not communicate her whereabouts to her family, in hopes of prompting an immediate reaction from authorities in search for her after receiving such a disturbing phone call. Her lifeless body was found seven days later, and the medical examiner’s office reported that D’Lisa had been strangled and beaten to death. A rather horrific and brutal killing of an extremely beautiful young woman.

D’Lisa M. Kelley was eight weeks pregnant when she went missing on March 7, 2014. The search for her culminated in her body being discovered in an abandoned Dallas home.

Realizing the heinous nature of this heartless crime that took this young mother’s life, a sense of urgency has always been sought in getting the person responsible for her killing off the street, and brought to justice. The amount of force and trauma usually necessary to beat a person to death requires physical force at close quarters. She may have known her killer, and it may even have been a crime of passion considering how she died. No information has ever been provided which may indicate who might have wanted to harm her.

Additionally, the family expressed concern regarding the lack of urgency during the initial calls to police after the family received the distress call from D’Lisa. Their concern led to the discovery of an extremely disturbing phone call exchange between a 911 operator and a police supervisor, that depicts laughter and off color comments pertaining to D’Lisa’s disappearance complaint. The officer was placed on leave for a period of time pending an internal police investigation, but has since reported back to active duty. While police eventually sought cellphone data for D’Lisa’s phone, it was turned off, causing the carrier to indicate to police that no data was available.

The woman’s family believes that if her disappearance complaint had been taken more seriously, police my have gotten an early lead in the case via her cellphone records. The poor handling of her case by police has prompted powerful members of the Dallas clergy and other political activist to launch a campaign to form the “Kelley Alert.” The community distress code which is similar to ones launched for missing kids believed to be in immediate danger (Amber Alert), and for missing senior citizens (Silver Alert) would be used for adult women believed to be in immediate danger.

It was 2:38 p.m. on Sunday, March 9, 2014 when the case was officially assigned to a missing persons detective and relatives finally spoke to detectives in person at 4 p.m. two days after the family received the distress call. D’Lisa’s sister Jasmine Steward said police responded too slowly. The family believes that the “Kelley Law” would require police response in such cases. Activist strongly believe if D’Lisa had been a white female her case would have prompted an immediate response from police officials. Its a disturbing trend related to the lack of priority by police officials to take cases involving women of color seriously, due to the unwritten, but well known rule that black women have histories of going missing.

The police supervisor involved in the police investigation because of his poor handling of her case, even joked about D’Lisa sounding like a person who has gone missing before. Leading the fight to establish legislation requiring the police to take immediate action in these kind of cases, is well known community activist Rev. Dominique Alexander, founder of the Next Generation Action Network. Please join me as the Administrator of TPC by helping make her tragic story go viral on social media, and to bring awareness to the lack of priority by police officials when women of color go missing. Let’s make her cold murder case hot again. Pass the “Kelley Alert” legislation now… #kelleyalert
