Slain Honors Teen Phylicia Barnes Remembered In Fashion Line: E’nomisis Apparel Helps Family Recover From Tragic Ending Of Promising Kid From North Carolina

Its hard to believe that in the seven years since Janice and Raheem Mustafa’s middle daughter (Phylicia Simone Barnes) met a fateful tragedy while visiting relatives on her biological father’s side of the family, no one has ever been prosecuted for this promising child’s murder. In the years following her killing, a lot of tears, hurt, and continued pain has engulfed her family as the reality of coping without such an intelligent and beautiful daughter begins to settle.

Phylicia was called “Simone” by her close relatives, like her big sister Shauntel and baby sister Iyana. Three beautiful females who were very close. Its a bond that despite Simone’s passing, remains in tact to this day. Shauntel explains that when they were younger the sisters had a thing of calling each other by there favorite names, but only in reverse. For instance ‘Letnuahs’, ‘Enomis’, and ‘Anayi’. It was a silly girl’s past time that was only unique to Janice’s beautiful female children.

Since Simone was murdered you can imagine the grief that the surviving daughters must have endured, considering that a link in the chain was broken among a closely knit family of mostly females. Growing up in what would be the Mustafa home, I’m sure there were fights, indifference, and other disputes just like any other family. Yet, it was just unconscionable to think that something so tragic would happened to one of Janice’ girls, especially Phylicia. Described as a “silly naive country girl” by her mother, Simone was often times the center of attention within the many social circles she belonged.

Janice told me that her daughter was a student leader at the Academic Academy high school she attended, acting as a mentor and even began working as a youth counsel to underclassmen at her school. Simone was described as a self starter, who got a job to help her parents buy her own car. She always kept her head to the skies, Raheem said. “My baby girl always wanted me to take her to the airport to watch the airplanes take off and land,” a past time he enjoyed with young Simone.

Simone and all of the kids who grew up in the Mustafa home weren’t street kids. They had structure, guidance, and two hardworking parents in the household that brought up their children in rural North Carolina. If you’ve ever had the opportunity to interacted with Janice’s kids, you could easily see the amazing job she accomplished with her girls. That’s what makes her story so heartbreaking. She was a child on an expedition to connect with her biological father’s family in Baltimore when evil reared its ugly head, and snatched this precious child from this world forever.

Over the years I have written a volume of articles about this promising kid’s tragic story. You can read them all at The People’s Champion Blog, by typing Phylicia Barnes in the search engine at the top right corner of the homepage. My efforts have have help keep this child’s story in the public in hopes that people will come forward to help solve her cold case.

Mean while, Shauntel and Iyana have launched an apparel website in memory of their slain sister to help fund and bring awareness to the growing issue of Missing and Exploited children. The website can be reached here: Enomisis (E’ nomis-sis) and stands for Simone Sis backwards. The site features a volume of lady t-shirts with the Enomis insignia, SLUT (Sophisticated, Luxurious, Unique, Trend) T’s, a variety of mink eyelashes, and trendy knee high socks in flavors with the Enomis logo. In addition, Shauntel is the designer of her own wig line. The site has contact information to reach out to her for custom orders and other request.

While they probably will never fully overcome the horror of this senseless tragedy, their tribute to their sister gives them a project, a purpose, and a venue to continue fighting for her justice. The T-shirts says something about one’s character. It says innocence, beauty, as well as intelligence. It speaks to the never ending bond of sisterhood and togetherness. a family trait that her surviving sisters want to share with the world, in hopes that you never forget the pretty purple flower who was found floating in a river. A very sad commentary. #enomis #justiceforphyliciabarnes
