A Sad Ending

No doubt, in addition to the family of 24-year-old La Toyia Figueroa, the pregnant West Philadelphia mother missing since last month whose remains were recovered there in a vacant lot on Saturday, many others will be watching the developments of this unfortunate discovery by police as well.

Ms. Figueroa's unborn child who died along with her, and the now motherless little 7-year-old daughter she leaves behind here on earth certainly deserve this much. So hopefully, the news coverage in the aftermath of this tragedy, which finds her boyfriend and father of her unborn child now in police custody, will be as accessible in this case as it is in many others of its kind, and justice, whatever it happens to be in this particular story, will once again –- be served.

My sincerest condolences to the Figueroa family in this awful time of grief.

Indeed, sometimes the ones we love just leave us FAR too young.

Good Monday, all. Peace.

I've followed it as well. I didn't know she had a young daughter. I'm sorry for her and her family. d:
