Tears From The Grave: Petro-Nixon Honors Teen Slaying Investigation Cold As Ever

Those who knew her say she was a devote regular at the Mt Olive Seventh-Day Adventist Church on Bushwick Avenue in Brooklyn, New York. The Boys and Girls High Honors student was also known to frequent the library which just might explain her straight A student reputation. Church, school, and family pretty much defined the kind of background Chanel Petro-Nixon came from, and the day she went missing was even more indicative of her upbringing because the child had enough motivation at the young age of 16 to go out and look for a job. Chanel’s short life glared with the kind success that most parents only dreamed their child could obtain. She was a well adjusted problem free kid who suddenly disappeared from the gritty streets of New York without a clue or even a simple rationalization explaining why.

Despite June 16, 2006 being “Father’s Day” it was a normal Sunday, when young Chanel left her home and set out to fill out a job application at a local Applebees Restaurant. . The pretty teen never made it there, and was declared missing for four days until New York sanitation workers happened upon and unusually large piece of garbage that reeked with an extremely foul odor. Alarmed by their discovery, city workers summoned the police who revealed the gruesome remains of young Chanel, who had been stuffed in a plastic bag and discarded like common trash in front of 212 Kingston Avenue.

Her Autopsy later revealed that the petite book smart kid form the Bedford Styvesant section of Brooklyn had been strangled to death. I can’t imagine nor even attempt to try to empathize with the anger and frustration her grieving family has endured all these years. For me the tragedy of this young girl’s killing is not mere simplicity of our times where society should just chalk up her death as another casualty of violent urban street culture. Chanel Petro-Nixon was somebody’s baby, and the monster who snatched her from this world remains at large without justice, retribution, and reconciliation for those who knew and loved this beautiful and promising child.

In seven years the lure of a $38,000 bounty, the star power of Michael Bloomberg (Mayor of New York at the time of her killing), the likes of Rev. Al Sharpton, “America’s Most Wanted” journalist John Lieberman, and the NAACP alike who all have advocated justice in the child’s killing has fallen short. The very same streets that snuffed out Chanel’s life remain silent without even a whisper as to who maybe responsible for her murder. Credit most be given to NYPD (One of the most efficient police agencies in the world for crimes of this nature) who did as much as they could to heat up the child’s murder investigation. Sadly though, the location of Child’s body when it was discovered wasn’t the actual crime scene, and with her body having been moved left very little evidence and much to be desired by way of culpable forensics that could pinched the cowardice monster her killed this child.

However, there were some clues that could help the cops close this case. Chanel’s white and Pink Air Jordan “Retro 14” sneakers and her cell phone were missing. Cops have made certain the public knew about those details very early on in the investigation with hopes that the items would jaw someone’s memory who may have observed the items in a person’s possession or their home. That’s the only lead the police has ever had in this murder case, and it’s just heartbreaking to think Chanel was killed for trivial material items of this nature. The child’s mother ( Lucita Nixon) is convinced that people who have information to her daughter’s murder exist, and she continues to plead to them to come forward, and tell police what they know so justice can be served for this horrific crime.

Now that glaring lights from News Cameras, the cops, and all but the memory of Chanel Perto-Nixon seemingly having dissipated, her family, and other watchdog advocates serving as “gate keepers” of society remain the only vehicles of advocacy who speak for her tragic story. Her parents continue to organize demonstrations and marches on the anniversary of Chanel’s disappearance to continue the fight for justice for the unnecessary death of their precious daughter. Their effort serves the community well if not only to demonstrate the imperativeness of continued grassroots efforts championing the plight of all victims of crime whose cases dwell in dusty boxes on the shelves of police cold case depository files.

Those of us who care and make it known that we haven’t, and never will forget the tragedy of murdered children remain encouraged that one day justice will be served with these killers locked up forever. The most important challenge is to sell the spirit of community involvement to society at large. As long as people lack understanding or practical first hand knowledge after experiencing the murder of their own child, our children will never be safe to walk the streets of this country, and the evilness that lurks in the shadows of society will continue to prey upon the innocent and most vulnerable within our communities.  I won’t stop caring nor stop fighting for those who spirits continue to cry out from the grave.

A reward for information leading to a conviction of Chanel’s killer has grown over the years and now stands at more than $33,000. Anonymous tips should go to (800) 577-TIPS.
