Good morning Family. I say Family because through all your love and support you have treated me like family , so I'm extending it back to you all.

I just wanted to give my family an update on Askari's case. Nothing.........absolutely NOTHING HAS HAPPENED IN MY SON'S CASE ! I am sick to my stomach to know that this woman is STILL home without being charged by the MIDDLESEX PROSECUTOR'S OFFICE in my son's death. STILL home with her family while my son rests in heaven .

The only time the prosecutor on the case has reached out to me was Wednesday to tell me how he was NOW on the case, but it's been 48 hours since I tried to schedule a meeting with them for the coming week so that they could ,as they say, "BRING ME UP TO SPEED". How hard is it to schedule a meeting with a mother that lost her son. Is this what they call "bringing me up to speed" is? If this is what it is they can keep it. I think I've been more than patient in this case. I said it to my boyfriend , and now I'm saying it to you all. IF THEY DON'T GIVE ME A MEETING BY NEXT TUESDAY AS I RESPECTFULLY REQUESTED FROM THEM I WILL BE SETTING UP A RALLY IN FRONT OF THE MIDDLESEX PROSECUTOR'S OFFICE FOR JUSTICE FOR MY SON , ASKARI. I will reach out to the media, social media, the Chief of police of Edison, The Councilman of Edison, Channel 7 News, Channel 12 news, All my report friends at the local newspapers, AND THE HEAD PROSECUTOR, ANDREW CURRY.
How hard is it to charge this WOMAN ? Stop telling me how sorry you are and do something like charge her because this ANGRY BLACK WOMAN FEELS LIKE IF THE SHOE WAS ON THE OTHER FOOT SHE'D BE IN JAIL......JUST LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE FEELS THAT'S A PART OF THIS MOVEMENT. YOU WANT TO MAKE ME HAPPY ? CHARGE HER!!!!!!
KEEP YOUR APOLOGIES ! DO YOUR DAMN JOB AND CHARGE HER !!!!!!!!!!

I want to say thank you to Charlie Kratovil, author and editor at New Brunswick Today. We appreciate the article you did on Askari. It was a article that was needed.

I have been sitting her wondering what can I do to make things move faster regarding the Justice for my son, Askari. I posted the article that was printed in the New Brunswick Newspaper and I shared it with all of you. If you haven't seen it I'll post the link at the end of this statement.

At first I was relieved when I was told of the article , and then I became enraged at the same time . It was kind of a bitter sweet feeling. Yes I was elated over the fact that my son was being recognized and at the same time to find out that a similar incident had happened and a person was charged for the crime immediately, however, my son's slayer has not been . with no reassurance from anyone ( Prosecutor's office or Police department included) that the woman may never even be charged leaves me empty inside. Like asking for justice for my son is too much to understand. If I'm overreacting I'm sorry , but unless anyof you have been a mother and have lost your only child you'll never know the burden I bare. But if any one of you out there feel where I'm coming from and understand my plight.....PLease stand with me and help me get justice for my Son.

I should not have had to lay my son to rest for something like this. My son was suppose to be laying me to rest. I have to live with this pain for the rest of my natural born life.

I had my son cremated and we went to pick him up today. He's in a beautiful urn suited for the young king he was. Now that I have him back home with me after 3 long weeks no one is ever going to take my son away from me again............

To all of my supporter...and Askari's supporters....We thank you from the bottom of our heart.

It's late. I'm going to spend some time with my son now.

We are grieving the loss of a child that brought smiles to our faces no matter how rough a day and laughter to our hearts from all the jokes he use to tell. He found great peace among his friends and I know that he will be missed greatly not only by his family but by his friends and community member that had the blessing of ever meeting him. He will always be remembered as a Gentle Giant. May God continue to provide you with the strength that you need as you move forward just know that you have a guarding Angel ever present around you. My family and I will not be able to attend the viewing on Saturday due to prior travel arrangements however we will be there tonight to continue to support you through this most difficult time.

We are extremely saddened and heartbroken at your loss. This was not just your loss, Our community lost a bubbly child who was full of enthusiasm and smiles.The way his friends describe his sense of humor, pleasant personality and helping nature, it seems God was selfish and he called Askari to join his team of Angels up there in heaven........ I had seen him quite a few times playing with my neighbor's kids. He was full of life and was a cute boy. It is hard to digest that Askari would not be seen around anymore....... Breaks my heart and I can understand the pain and agony you are going through......... May God give you the strength ......... We at the neighborhood are there with you and will stand united with you in this time of grief. Stay strong...... Hugs to you.. We will be there tomorrow for Askari and you.

I am so sorry for your tragic loss, I lost my 3 year old grandaughter out of nowhere for no reason, and it is so devastating. As far as the justice, sadly I do not have anything comforting to say about how the police are handling it. I know you at least want justice, she will have to live with what she did. Was it a tragic accident? Or was she under the influence of something? My prayers are with you always.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Askari. I happen to live in Oklahoma, but I have a good friend who's daughter and herself do know him. I found out about this tragedy through her. I have to say it hit me straight in the heart as if he were one of my own children. Nothing is worse than a child being taken from us too soon. I want you to know that all our thoughts and prayers go out to you from the Levy families, as well as the Adams family. I hope eventually you find peace knowing that your son is no longer seeing and dealing with the ugliness of this world.

Askari was one of Terrell's best friends and an addition to many families including ours in Durham Woods. His smile brightened every one's day and his laughter will be remembered. It is with sad regret we have to say goodbye to a gentle giant whose life was taken way to soon . May you rest in peace and continue to smile upon us each and every day. You will never be forgotten.

There are no words I can say that will help take your pain away. I am so sorry this happened to your son and that you have to live with this pain for the rest of your life. What a cruel thing to happen to him and you. I hope the love and support you receive keeps you strong. May you and your son get the justice he deserves.
