Mother seeks answers in death

Saturday, June 30, 2018

It's been one month since my son’s body was found burning in storage shed. It has not been determined who, why and how they did it. I feel as though it's been swept under the rug.

I have not heard anything from the 26th of May until the 26th of June about what happened. It was as though he was an animal burning. No one called the fire department, no one knows anything, and ain't no way a fire at the magnitude was not seen nor heard that no one had in their mind to call any type of rescue.

I'm asking for help from anybody who can bring me closure and justice. He was a human and his life did matter. He left behind a son who requires special care and is only 7 years old. How is he going to understand what happened to his father, why he's not seeing his father. What will happened to this little boy? Does he suffer for the lack of somebody else's knowledge?

I don't understand why no one would tell what they seen or what happened to give this young gun a piece of mind as well as myself. It's not easy living day by day knowing that your child has lost his life and no one cares what happened. Life is literally stolen away from him — one that he was looking forward to being there for his son and his son looking forward to him being there for his father. Now he don't get that chance or opportunity anymore.

You would not want this to happen to one of your loved ones, so please come forth and to bring peace to bring closure, to bring justice to this hateful crime. His death was not an accident. He was deliberately murdered.

The current governmental regime of Israel exercises entirely too much influence on American foreign policy. Yup. The oft-touted “current wave of antisemitism” in America is indicative of the fact that perspicacious folks in America recognize that the best interests of America do not…

On Nov. 16, 2018, following the signing of the Cyber Security Agency Act, President Trump was asked for his assessment of the ongoing trade war with China. The President responded: “We put on tariffs on $250 billion worth of goods … Our country has done very well, and China, as you…

Recent Daily Reflector editorials and comments in the Public Forum have raised my eyebrows and my concerns about the sustainability of the human race. How can we continue if we are our greatest enemy? Every person I know has, and is entitled to, a unique perspective and personal opinion. Our…

A recent submission in the Public Forum suggested that to follow Jesus, I must vote Republican.

For me it is a life-long struggle and my highest calling to be in the fold of the good shepherd. Nonetheless, I don’t believe that scripture suggests that I can take my stand beneath the cross of…

In 1986, internationally-renowned singer Janet Jackson made the inspirational song, “What Have You Done for Me Lately?” Elected officials should actualize the meaning of that song. Oftentimes, elected officials make shallow promises, kiss babies, and hypocritically “press the…

Consider the following Republican presidents: Richard M. Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. Each a two-term, or twice-elected president; each a more disastrous presidency than its predecessor on the list (Nixon posing a threat to the Constitution via Watergate, Reagan posing a greater threat…

Orange County District Court Judge Beverly Scarlett recently compared Silent Sam to Hitler and, by extension, the human suffering of slaves to that of the Holocaust. Based upon her remarks, it is not clear how well Judge Scarlett knew Sam or Adolf Hitler.

Statistically speaking, Sam had not…

This letter is in response to the letter titled “Unjustly defaming Dixon again” by Willie Roberts that appeared in the Wednesday, Oct. 31 edition.

Roberts stated that “White women have historically been used, wittingly or unwittingly, to destroy black men’s lives. Their…

What’s with you, Vic Corey? One second you are crowing how Trump is the reason for you being richer, the next you are, as always, worshipping your idea of a “new Christian.”

First, the U.S. is not a business; it is a country. Trump’s planned bankruptcies, his finding ways…

Is it any wonder that the attendance is dropping in the NFL when you can only pay the head man, Roger Godell, $40 million a year and have as many as five commentators sitting around a table in their $500-plus suits as they blurt out that which you and I are looking at? Not to mention another two…
