Phylicia Barnes Sibling’s Account Don’t Add Up: Police Break In Teen’s Killing Case May Start With Sisters

The Conowingo Dam: Located in Northern Maryland, separating Hardford and Cecil Counties, and the site where the physical remains of Phylicia Barnes was discovered

Now that the body of Pretty Monroe, N.C. Honor Teen Phylicia Barnes has been pulled from the fast streaming waters of the Susquehanna River in Northern Maryland, it’s time to take a closer look at some of the cold hard facts surrounding the death of this beloved child. Many of us may never know what information Police Investigators have discovered during their interview of the young girl’s Sisters, Family, and Friends until the case becomes closed and a matter of Public Record. However, I find myself revisiting a Blog Talk Radio Broadcast by “Two Peas In Their Pod Radio” in which the Barnes Siblings were Interviewed about their Baby Sister’s Disappearance. I can’t help but notice the lack of any authentic grief or even desperation on the part of the teen girl’s Half Sisters. During the Interview Deena Barnes appeared to be stumped by questions, pausing for very awkward periods of time, providing extremely selective information, whispering, and even displaying instances of laughter. In contrast, Older Sister Kelly appeared coached, inattentive far too frequently, and could also be overheard whispering as well. Listeners may not have picked up on all of the nuances going on, but a trained investigative ear listening to the Broadcast would most certainly have been troubled by the sister’s actions.

If these facts are not disturbing enough, Sisters Deena, and Kelly Barnes’ accounts of the day that young Phylicia Barnes went missing, are just as baffling. Police typically do not show their hands during Investigations of this nature in fear of tipping off possible suspects. I feel so strongly about the implication of the Barnes Siblings that I would venture to say, “They were suspects from the gate”. Now that’s a broad leap considering Police Investigating the Barnes Case have continuously said that they have no leads. That was before they discovered the teen dead. Whatever suspicions that Cops may have had regarding the Sibling’s involvement may now surface after the Autopsy and Toxicology findings come in. Hopefully, the young girl’s physical remains will spur some clues as to what actually happened to her on the day she went missing.  Don’t take my word for it that the Barnes sisters may be implicated, listen for yourselves:

Barnes Siblings Interview On Blogtalk 

The nearly 21/2 hours long Bt Interview is so alarming that Sisters Deena and Kelly Barnes along with Deena’s so called Ex-Boyfriend, and his younger Brother or Cousin (which ever is true as Deena had trouble on the accuracy of these facts) should be prime suspects. Deena and Kelly Barnes account doesn’t make any sense at all, adds serious doubt about the credibility of their accounts, and seems suspicious to the point that they appear deceptive. Why? Who were they whispering to during the BT Interview? Were they trying to get their stories straight? These are just a few of the many questions that I am sure Listeners walked away from that interview with. It very well maybe that they aren’t involved at all, but their posturing during the interview raises a valid suspicion.

December 28, 2010 Timeline 

08:45 a.m. Deena Says she leaves for work and Phylicia is asleep

10:00 a.m. Deena Says she exchanged Text with Phylicia about shopping later on for Hair Care and Skin Care  Products. Kelly also claims to have spoken to Phylicia around the same time about her picking Phylicia up after work to get her hair done.

11:30 a.m.   Deena says it’s the last time she received Text messages from Phylicia.

12:30 p.m.   Deena says she speaks with her Ex-Boyfriend who is now at the apartment to pick up his younger  Brother (Deena later changes her story from his Brother to Younger Cousin) and is told by him that Phylicia is asleep on the couch. Deena adopts the mindset I’ll let her sleep.

12:30 p.m.    Kelly says she calls Phylicia but doesn’t get an answer.

1:30   p.m.     Kelly says she calls Phylicia again unsuccessfully, but doesn’t go by Deena’s apartment to pick her up as scheduled,  and assumes Phylicia is still asleep at Deena’s.

3:08  p.m.     Kelly calls Phylicia again unsuccessfully then calls Deena to see if Phylicia is with her. The Sisters  conclude that Phylicia is still asleep as the Ex-Boyfriend told her, and the decide to let her sleep.

5:00 p.m.     Deena’s Ex-Boyfriend notifies her that he arrives back at the apartment with the door unlocked,  loud music is playing in the apartment, and Phylicia is not there. Tells Deena maybe she went to get something to eat.

6:00 p.m.     Deena arrives home and there is still no sign of Phylicia.

7:30 p.m.     Deena Barnes sounds the alarm and calls Baltimore Police and her Dad about Phylicia’s Disappearance.

9:00 p.m.     Janice Sallis, Phylicia’s Mother calls Deena Barnes to speak with Phylicia after several  unsuccessful attempts to reach her Daughter via her Cell Phone, and is told by Deena that Phylicia is missing!

During the BT Interview it was revealed by Deena Barnes that not only was her Ex-Boyfriend at the apartment with her Baby sister, the Ex’s Younger Brother/Cousin was there, and lives there. I am extremely challenged to understand why a seemingly intelligent Young Professional like Deena Barnes (Licensed Pharmacy Tech) could leave her Little Sister alone in an apartment  with a strange older male. Deena offers the rationalization that the Ex was moving out on an ongoing basis since early December. It’s December 28th and he hasn’t gotten all of his stuff out of the apartment yet? Excuse me, but if I have to take a day off from work to be there so you can get all of your belongings then so be it. It won’t be none of this coming back and forth. This knucklehead like statement cast serious doubt on whether he was actually her Ex. I mean who does that? Allow an Ex to continuously come by on a regular basis and he still has a key? Also, you leave your Sister there knowing he could just drop by at anytime. What if she was in the shower or indisposed?  Why all the Texting between Deena, Kelly, and Phylicia. From 10:00 until 12:30 they simply texted her. Neither of the Sisters called Phylicia during this time frame. Kelly calls her 3 times at 12:30, 1:30 (the time she is to pick her up), and 3:08. If you are going to pick her up to get her hair done at 1:30 why didn’t you go by there? The Ex says she was asleep at 12:30. I find it hard to believe that Young Phylicia was asleep an hour prior to the time Kelly was to pick her up. I mean it doesn’t make sense considering that’s all Phylicia talked to her Big Sisters about earlier that day, was going shopping and getting her hair done. Not only that, but Deena just takes the Ex’s word for it that Phylicia is asleep. I’m sorry, 2 possibly 3 men are in the apartment with my Pretty Little Sister, and you don’t ask to speak to her? Wake her up, put my Sister on the Phone, or better yet I have to go home because I have a family emergency. You go by there and get your little Sister. I mean what was Deena thinking? At 3:08 Kelly informs Deena that she can’t contact Phylicia and neither of them go by the apartment. That’s simply absurd. They had no need to go by there, because I believe they already knew what had happen to Phylicia. That’s just me but anyway. Kelly was scheduled to pick Phylicia up between 1-1:30 to take her to get her hair done. Why didn’t Kelly go by Deena’s anyway, I mean Phylicia could have still been getting dressed or in the shower. It wasn’t until 3:08 when Kelly learned that Phylicia was possibly sleeping after she called Deena. Why did Kelly wait nearly 2 hours to try and contact Phylicia? After all they did have plans to go to the Hair Salon. Did Kelly actually have intentions on picking Phylicia up? The fact that Kelly failed to go by the apartment (she lives a few blocks away) seems suspicious and is problematic. From 3:08 – 6:00 when Deena arrived home, neither of the Sisters had attempted to call Phylicia. Also, at 5:00 when Deena’s Ex advised her that he found the apartment door unlock and Phylicia was not there, Deena did not immediately leave work to go by her apartment to investigate what was going on, nor did she call Kelly who lives near by to ask her to go by the apartment. There are a lot of questions surrounding the Barnes Sisters actions or lack there of on the day that Phylicia went missing. We don’t know what they reportedly have told the Police as of yet, but the Blogtalk Radio interview seems to offer a plethora of circumstances where the Sisters failed to properly and adequately checkup on their Baby Sister. The explanations they have offered (at least in the BTI) are not logical from a responsible adult’s standpoint. The fact that at least Deena knew that their were young men in the apartment with Phylicia and the crime plagued Park Heights Neighborhood where Deena and Kelly both lived, should have been more then enough incentive for at least one of  these Women to go by the apartment to check on Phylicia after several failed attempts to contac her. The reality is that they didn’t. A huge dark cloud now hovers above these Women and you have to wonder if the accounts they offered has any validity what so ever. To add insult to injury, neither of the Barnes sisters contacted Janice Sallis to inform her that Phylicia was missing. Ms. Sallis called because she hadn’t her from her Pretty daughter. Perhaps the most telling fact about this case is that Deena’s Ex has hired an attorney even though Police say he isn’t a suspect. During the BTI Kelly was asked what she believes may have happened to Phylicia? Kelly responded, “I think she trusted someone she thought she could trust”. I can’t help but wonder if Kelly Barnes knows who that “someone” is?

  1. betty harris says:

    i do not know who you are but i agree with you all the way , i have been watching from day one and none of what the sisters say seem true and they are so uncaring like this is nothing. the sister deena know exactly what happen to that poor child . my gut feeling tells me that , it does not take a rocket scientist to see thru her and her sister.they know what happened, also one minute she says on tv that her x-boyfriend was moving out then in another interview she quickly says my boyfriend was the last to see her. SOMETHING SOUNDS SO FISHY!! MY HEART AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO HER MOTHER .!!

  2. terri says:

    this is so very sad i have been keeping up w/this story from day one; we all would like to think that we can trust family & friends but sometimes they can be worst then a enemy they can get closer to you, hurt you or do something more terrible as be the cause of your death, i too think that deena & kelly are lying about what happen to phylicia i also believe that phylicia went missing the same night that she was drinking/smoking, something happened in that deena’s apt. i think the dad knows what the sisters told him he might of even told them what to do b/4 they called the police.
    R.I.P Phylicia; & Janice keep looking up God will give u strength to go on.

  3. bmorelover says:

    after reading the blog comments on baltimore sun, i thought the only guilty person was the ex-boyfriend but after reading this i think everyone who last saw phylicia knows something or know exactly what happened, i read on another site where kelly posted on phylicia’s facebook, “this still doesn’t seem real. i love u girl & i know i’ll see u again” if she really loved phylicia, she would of checked on phylicia in person instead of texting, they all need lie detector texts & i know a lot will fail

  4. Recap 1 says:

    I agree something is fishy about this situation. I am no detective, but the dog’s scent ending at the parking lot, says to me she did not walk away from the aparment on her own. I am quite sure those dogs were well trained to pick up her scent once they smelled something of hers. Also, her money and credit cards were still in the home, so did someone slipped up and forget to take them in the middle of all the confusion. You know they say it is hard to commit the perfect crime. You will slip up. in one of her sister’s interviews Deena said, “i think someone took her”, right away I wondered why something like that came out of her mouth at that stage in the investigation. I am not sure, but it seems as though you would have been hopeful about her possibly being lost, or returning soon; however, she specifically said, ” I think someone took her”. Now i really wondered did she know something no one esle knew?

  5. B more Mom says:

    First I want to say I hope Ms. Sallis received my donation from my daughters and I! Next, sadly I don’t buy the stories either. My daughters have lived all over the country in colleges and we always checked on each other especially if I’m sitting in a hotel etc. waiting to meet them. My daughter has her own apt in college so I know how this goes. I would have known where and what time if my daughter left to get something to eat. Sleeping on a couch when expecting to meet me…NOT! If so my daughter WOKE UP and answered her phone! I still say someone knew how Deena ran that house and took advantage of a young naive intel gorgeous Phylicia. My daughters are upset wondering why Phylicia didn’t tell her mother what was going on because they wouldn’t want to live in a house like that? I grew up in the hood so I trained my daughters to deal with hood rats!!! I would have inspected Deena’s house before any of my daughters lived there! How many times has the killers been part of the search??? RIP Angel and my prayers go out to your mother! God brought that body up for a reason. Enjoy what’s left of your freedom killers…….

  6. B more Mom says:

    Something else is eating at me as well. EVERYONE knows how I feel about my girls so if one of them comes up missing my fam and friends would ring my phone off the hook FIRST! The fact NO ONE including the dad, thought to alert Mrs. Sallis sent red flags up quickly for me!!!! I think dad is very naive because who wants to believe one daughter (or men in and out of apt) caused the death of the other????

  7. Bodymore,Md. says:

    What got me about the interview also was, why are they whispering, why is she laughing, they don’t sound like they really care and why did they not stay around for the entire interview!!!!!!! That is not how I would have acted… The police knows who is lying, believe me….. Love you Janice!!!! Phylicia I am so sorry that you came to Bodymore (Baltimore)!!!!

  8. Looking4Phylicia says:

    These ppl are clearly omitting alot of info, im also tempted to go to the police station and speak with them personally to know exactly what they know about phylicia’s disappearance…I think something happend to PB that night and thats why everyone has wish wasy stories…Ive read alot of interviews/statements and NOONE said they talked to her that day! noone CREDIBLE atleast and I think that is a very big sign…she told her sister in GA the nighht b4(12/27) that someone made a pass @ her and she refused….as a young girl I think she would have called her sister that next morning to elaborate(we all know abt girltalk) but noone heard from her

  9. Looking4Phylicia says:

    then in one part of the BTI Deena says she talked-TALKED to phylicia b4 she left work n they talked about goin to get haircare products or whatever…and i said to myself i thought she was sleep when u left for work…so how could you have madee those plans before u went to work??
    Then Kelly says she stopped by the night b4 and they watched movies n ate cookies….but then when a question was asked she disclaimed alll liability and said oh yea if im not mistaken i wasnt there the nite b4 her disappearance i was there 2 nites before!! this should be the most important time in ur life…how could u be unsure…certain instances in life u will always remember..like where u were when Michael jackson died..e.i. the nite b4 ur sister went missing…and my grandmother used to say if u tell the truth u dont have shit to remember…AND THATS TRUE!!!!

  10. Looking4Phylicia says:

    she was still slp deena??? u just said yall spoke before u left…….their stories r like sponges….so many holes

  11. bmorelover1 says:

    i agree with all these posts, i read on someone’s facebok page called help find phylicia simone barnes___a female on that page said phylicia died that night from a overdose & deena had her ex-boyfriend & family get rid of the body, i don’t know why that female posted that but if that female knows something she should have been went to the police, this was posted feb.22, 2011 on that facebook page, then the female posted that deena or kelly sent her threats to her page because of what she posted, i don’t know how true any of this is but it was interesting reading those posts

    • dbrianadams says:

      @ bmorelover1 – You know this may not be too far from the truth. Deena was a Licensed Pharmacy Tech with access to all sorts of Controlled Substances. Also, I am very disturbed by the action of leaving Phylicia in that apartment knowing that a strange male lived there also, and that the so called Ex still had a key. That’s disturbing because basic female instinct should have kicked in on that issue. Also, I wondered why the Ex chose to drop by that day. Deena says in the BTI that she wasn’t expecting him to come by, then offered the rationalization that he had been moving out on an on going basis since early December. It’s Dec 28! Duh! I hope more continue to read my Blog so we can spread the word!

  12. Recap 1 says:

    So many questions, did her sisters on Dec 28, 2010, actually talk to her on the phone ? Was it normal practice to text each other whenever she did not go to work with them? forget about this, my real question is was she alive on Dec 27, 2010. As one poster said, who with any creditability spoke with her that day? And, even if there are no real suspects in the case; go back to square one and drag those last to see her back in for interrogation. Their stories are so shaky, prove to us the American public that you are without a doubt innocent of any involvement in this case. We have been up countless days and nights searching for answers. You would have thought we were the parents. Oh now you have got me started. Why did not Deena communicate with Janice Sallis, if I had your child in my care and could not find her, I would be all over you trying to explain my position in this; However, Mrs. Sallis could not even speak to this woman, Janice said, ” Russell Barnes would not let her speak to Deena
    . Deena’s a grown woman, my daddy could not have kept me from facing this woman, especially when I see her all over the news suffering and all she is asking is to speak with me. I want you to answer some of my questions, Of course, anyone is going to do that , heck you want someone to tell you something. Yes, there is a chance she might have beat the heck out of you, but you needed to face the consequences of your own involvement with the last time you seen her child.

  13. Recap 1 says:

    I hope more people read your blog also. I read on face book, that this blog is not real. No one said it was first hand information from those in charge of phylicia’s case. From my understanding, this is a concerned individual who took the time out of his, or her life, to pursue justice for a life taken unnecessarily. Obviously, they started this blog to get people discussing the circumstances surrounding her disappearance and death. People got involved when they heard about the disappearance of this young woman and they are not going to just simply go away, they also want justice for this child. I for one spent countless hours consumed with the authorities finding this child safe and sound. However, things have changed and it’s difficult to just let it be. Furthermore, I am a firm believer that nothing is irrelevant when it comes to information. Surely, the detectives are on their job; however, often times leads do come from the public. You know it is possible they could have overlooked something and the individual who created this blog, just might help to spark something they overlooked. And, if people continue to talk about her case; who knows what could come of this.

  14. Bmore Mom says:

    I wish I could have a private convo with Mrs. Sallis because she said her first mind was to not send her baby to B more. I’ve had knock down drag outs with my ex not letting his baby mama kids near my daughters while they were young. If it’s true Phylicia drove to B more by herself why did Mrs. Sallis allow that when she was under 18? I accompanied my daughter on her first road trip under 18 to college. I’m not judging Mrs. Sallis because I’ve had times when I’ve had to risk my girls hating me to make an “adult” decision. So much of this case just doesn’t add up! Not trying to knock B more but why was an intel girl looking at Towson instead of better schools near her mother or in B more and believe me A LOT of people have picked up on that decision by Phylicia? What’s heart breaking is Mrs. Sallis will regret this decision the rest of her life. I’m not surprised Phylicia’s own flesh and blood could drug and kill her then dump her in a river. That’s how jealous “step” hood rats think. Whomever did this to this angel better thank God it wasn’t a daughter of mine. The B more police would have to keep my “hood” brothers from storming B more from St. Louis!!! I’m confident this case will be solved. I refuse to say “and give Mrs. Sallis closer” because that never happens when a parent buries a child. I know because I lost my baby teen sis. I thank God it wasn’t as humiliating as finding a her nude body floating in a river! Again RIP Angel take care of your mom like my sis has taken care of me….

    Mr. Adams, I must say I am so thankful for people just as you. Not afraid to speak the facts and the truth. This story is very fishy. I a 32 yr old female with a 16 yr old daughter. As I heard this all I can do is cry. My daughter calls me bi-polar because I am her friend sometimes and then I change to be her mother, but its times like these that I am proud to be bipolar as she (my daughter) says. No matter where she goes even to her grandmothers house I call and check on her and text her all the time. If something like this were to happen I don’t know what I would do or where I would begin.I would like to say to Phylicia’s mother that I too am a single parent and my daughter has other siblings that has not been raised as I raised my child. After seeing this I refuse to let her visit any of her siblings. If they want to see her they are more than welcome to visit here at my home where I can assure that they all are taken care of properly. I am so sorry for your loss and as God seen fit to take his precious angel home he will to comfort you! I am in prayer for you and with you. Be Blessed!

    I wish people would lay off Sandra Barnes and any other family member trying to understand how a cousin could be thrown out like trash nude. We don’t know what kind of pain this tragedy has caused within the family. Plus I agree, if one of my daughters was murdered this way and anyone in that house refused to take a lie detector test to assist the police…they have answered the question who was part of my baby’s murder????? Everyone should be lined up at the police station to assist but then we already suspected anyone who would throw Phylicia in a river like that knew the trail would “easily” come back to that apt complex. RIP Angel!!!

      And another thiing Bmore Mom if u can’t get ur facts straight and together for my sake just HUSH

    • Janice M. Sallis says:

      Who in the HELL is Sandra Barnes, so many people have come out of the wood works claiming to be related to my daughter. If ur daughter(s) were murdered u don’t know how crazy u would become just like me. ok so if u don’t what to say plz don’t say anything.

    ? I just read on another site Phylicia was last seen with a coat and slippers on, if she was sleeping on the couch, why would she have these items on? I have been following this story and it just doesn’t add up to me. I feel so sad for Janis to trust your child to go to a place where she is supposed to be protected and to be safe and the outcome ended in tragedy. Her half sisters did not do their job in the safe keeping of Phylicia. Just because they reconnected on Facebook (facebook is nothing but trouble and needs to be banned for good) and they share the same father they are still strangers in my opinion and the half siblings don’t seem to sincere with this all interview..

    • Janice M. Sallis says:

      Although they may have been strangers, that’s why I wanted them to get to know each other. Like slavery time man made masters sold off others family members and never to be heard of again. Do you think that’s fair that she should not have known themm. The one thing that I regret is just not being able to detect their LIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Family is suppose to know of one another. In other words we as people of color have remained in SLAVERY don’t we all know that it’s tiime to exit the slavery realm.

  18. fancy says:

    Why is it that several sites are describing what she was last seen in, if she was sleeping on the couch would she have on a pea coat, and slippers? I have been following this story since it happen and it breaks my heart that such a gifted young lady with such a bright and promising future was murdered, she was suppose to be protected and cared for by her half sisters and yet they have failed her, they both have such a non caring attitude to not have informed Phylicia’s mother that she was missing and to reconnect on facebook is even more heart wrenching, just because you share the same father with someone they still can be complete strangers to you and cause you harm.. In my opinion facebook brings a lot of negativity into peoples lives and should be banned!

  19. The Skeptic's Skeptic says:

    Several years ago, my uncle was murdered. I remember that I was doing some cleaning when the call came in that his house was on fire and he was missing. I lived approximately 40 miles away from his house. I dropped everything.. no bath, no makeup (I go nowhere without my makeup), hair in disarray (it was a cleaning day). I jumped into my car and sped down the highway. My family was assembled in the church’s recreation room, but to access it, I had to go through the sanctuary. I remember running like a wild woman through that sanctuary, to get to my family, to see if my uncle was ok. Even after we learned he was gone, and the law enforcement investigation had begun, we drove them nuts, asking if they knew who killed him, how did he did, is there any new information? If my uncle’s situation had been like Phylicia’s, we would have been all over the television pleading for information, just like Janis Sallis was doing.

    Deena and Kelly have never displayed the kind of emotion that I would have expected. I know people from B’More are suppoed to be “hard”, but this is your sister for God’s sake!! Instead of hiding behind the, suddenly, caring dad (absent from Phylicia’s life for 8 years), I would have been singing from the rooftops for someone to help find my sister. But they didn’t. The didn’t check on Phylicia on 12/28, because they already knew she was dead. Whatever happened to Phylicia, happened the night before. I can envision the sisters, being jealous of Phylicia, giving her drugs so she would commit some lurid sex act with the men in the apartment to “bring her down to size”. Afterall, look and Deena and, heaven forbid, Kelly, they both are trolls. Take it from me, jealous women can do some treachous things.

  20. Fancy says:

    Has this case slipped through the cracks. I haven’t heard or read any new leads??? What’s taking so long I’m sure by now someone has broken down and admitted what crime they committed!

  21. Fancy says:

    I know we all want to know what happened to Phylicia Barnes and we know the reason behind her death as been reported on different sites, her checking facebook to see if Deena’s boyfriend was with another female. I live in New Jersey and I was just reading the Courier Post Newspaper they are having a discussion on “Who is Using Facebook Right” the number is 856-767-0108 and the email is Liz@colortconline.com. I think we all need to call this number so it can be discussed in other state and cities to avoid this kind of tragedy happing again.. Please spread the word.

  22. Ericka says:

    To the The Skeptic’s Skeptic and many others. Has it occurred to anyone that the girl was actually abducted and it had nothing to do with jealously. Everybody is reading stories and coming to conclusions without knowing all the facts. Premature judging. As for skeptic’s skeptic I’m sure if you look in the mirror there is someone in your family who you would look like a troll compared to but would you go so far as to have them killed because you were jealous. It took her mother three days to get here, why did it take her so long. If someone told me my child was missing I’d be there in a hop skip and a jump no matter how far it was and how long did she stay in Baltimore? The father did lost his job staying in Baltimore, the mother moved from North Carolina to Georgia. She tried to lead people to think it was the first time the girl had been in Baltimore when she had been to Baltimore many times. Idle minds are the devils workshop and ya’ll give him plenty room to play.

    • Reanjo says:

      Ericka, you MUST be friends of the sisters, because with the evidence out there, there is no way your comments make any sense whatsoever

  23. Fancy says:

    I agree with you Reanjo. The situation is very very hearbreaking. I go to different sites daily to see what new leads the police have, with this new evidence of child pornography I am total lost as to what exactly took place and where did this take place, in Deena’s apartment when she was giving alcohol to loosen up. We have some sick individuals in this world and I stress to my children everyday to please keep a close eyes on there kids dont let them wander out to play or have people keeping them u have to be so careful in this wicked society that we live in. I can’t even imagine what happened to Phylicia, her last moments alive and if she pleaded for her life or was she drugged and never knew what was coming to her. I pray for her to rest in peace because her soul is not gonna rest until her killer(s) are brought to justice.

    Your in my prayers Ms.Salis
