My daughter, who was 22 was murdered on11-04-2005. She had a 3 yr old little boy and she was also 5 months pregnant. She was to be married in a few days, to a wonderful man in the military. She had divorced her ex-husband while he was in jail for beating her. He got out 2 weeks before she died. He broke into her appt. everynight. She became scared for her life and went into a battered women's shelter. She left her son, Jaden, with me, and told me she would be ok. The next day, the police arrived at our door and started to tell us the gruesome details. I couldn't listen, this couldn't be true. She was suppose to be safe. I want to know what really happened. Until then, I exist from one day to the next, with questions realing through my mind. I'm so lonely, even thou I'm surrounded by people that love and need me. Shelly was my oldest child. There have been times when I have thought suicide, I'd be able to be with sweet Shelly again.....

My boyfriend was crossing Bragg Blvd on August 8, 2010. A drunk driver ran him over, and killed him instantly. It was the man third DWI offense, and his license had already been revoked. He has already had his parliminary court date, and they only charged him for the DWI and driving on a revoked license. He will serve 3 years max, for the death of my best friend. Howie and I were going places, we had both FINALLY met someone special and poof woke up one morning and got the call, he was gone. Everyday I think about him, my life slowly crashing down around me. I know someday I will have to forgive this man for what he did, and I am working on that internally... But today I can still be angry, and cuss him, and cry, and pray, but nothing seems to help

Many of you may not consider my son's death a murder but I do. He was in the Army and was in a "safe" place when an Iraqi insurgent busted in and starting shooting like a wild man - he killed 2 men and wounded 9 more. Our men did NOT have bullets on them - they had empty barrels - as part of the aid and assist deal. We received his autopsy this week - he had 7 bullets holes - and the "nature" of his death was HOMICIDE. Our son never got to shoot back or defend himself - he was shot in the neck, thru the chest and arm, thru the shoulder and thru the thigh and abdomen. He died at the scene. It has only been 2 shorts months....this is all so bad.

Over a year since my daughter Ashleigh was murdered as she lay sleeping in her own bed. No justice yet, they are still searching of the monsters, and I so need them to find them, I search all the time for answers, deal with the police, with people that claim to know something but are only playing games with me and I am at my wits end. They will be caught, God is watching and knows all. The time is coming, but the pain will never leave, the heartache, the pure terror of knowing your child was murdered as you lay sleeping feet away from her, how how how, it is something I will never forgive myself for, I know I know there was nothing I could of done to prevent this, to stop it, but being her mother I was supposed to protect her and that I will never forgive myself for that is just how it is...................

Hey, my name is Tina; my brother Jack was murdered Nov. 29, 2009.. one day after thanksgiving and one day before my 31st birthday. He and my son were putting up Christmas decorations at my moms house that day and went in to hang out at dark. He and my son were so close.. silly, playful, loved to aggravate eachother; my son went to his room and my brother to his, planning to get some sleep to work in the yard again the next day and it was my bday!! Well, I called my brother about 9pm to check on them but got no answer so I called my son.. he said jack was in his room. Probably on the internet.. so I go to bed, get up in the morning, go to moms to get my bday present, my brother was no where.. his phone just rings.... go all weekend calling him, his friends.. nothing! Monday morning I was going to place a missing persons report when my brothers best friend calls me and says a John Doe was found... long story short, I call GBI, meet with them and had to look at photos... the whole time... although scared out of my mind, I just couldn't make myself believe this could be him; but it was!!! Here I sat, with Jacks best friend, 2 detectives I've never seen before and a picture of my dead brother!! My life ended!! My world stopped turning, my heart broken, forever!!! His face, his empty soless eyes!!! It was horrible!!! By this time, my mom has read the paper and is calling me... I couldn't answer!! How could I tell her this!!! And my son!!! I just wanted to disappear!!! But I couldn't!! I knew my family needed me, and so did my brother!!! His murderer was found, not before shooting 2 others and himself!!! I'm glad the cold blooded monster is dead but now, so are all the answers!! Is that justice?! No, not for me! Now I'm left with questions, regret, the what if's and the image of my murdered brother.. his eyes haunt me!! His soul lost.. his body missed, painfully!! I can't talk to my family.. I can't talk to anyone.. the ones who do ask questions are not asking out of love it concern but sheer curiosity!! I feel alone, like no one cam possible know how I feel or understand what I go through everytime I blink... I see his face, his eyes, staring at me.. its like his missing.. like he's gonna walk through that door any minute or text me!!! Why won't he just come home!!??

Sorry??? I know I am sick of hearing that and I apolgize if I'm offending anyone. Murder has to be the most awful thing that can happen. It provides no answers and makes us feel insane. Sometimes I think I am. Do you ever fell that people are tired of talking about your murdered child? Well I'm not. I carried her and gave birth to her so I will tell what happened to her over and over again and hope that I reach even one person and maybe they will think twice about murdering or going along with their criminal friends. I am so glad to finally find this site.Other sites/groups wanted to encourage me to get over it...well I'm not over it and I need/want to talk to others who understand what I am felling. I'm good most days now..except nights of course, but other days I am a wreck, it's like I am hearing the news all over again. I will never be the same person... although I have 4 other living children. I will always be the mother of that "murdered girl, Tamiqa Taylor" Now that I have made sure each of her 5 killers and finished my investigatiON of every thing surrounding her murderers I am lost. Thanks to all of you for letting me just be a grieving mother today.

this is my beloved nephew and it is one of the last pictures taken of him--he was stolen from us on July 30th 2009 and we are still mourning the loss and i know we always will be--seems like a month instead of a year and to all of you who are feeling alone please know you are not alone as we all are walking on the same road of grief and sorrow; wishing things were different; wishing we had one more hug; wishing we could wake up from this nightmare; wishing we were with them........even today
