This week we have an end to our months long wait to hear of the whereabouts of our beloved Tyrita. We've always held on to hope that she would soon return to us, maybe weary but alive. We have her back now, although this end is bittersweet, we at least now have an answer and an end. So surreal! Tyrita was so well loved, one can not imagine how this could be; but we live in a world where people do not fear our awesome God or have respect for human life. God says in his words that "vengeance is mine, I will repay"; so we know that he is in control and will ease our heart, minds and soul.
We thank the Linden and Monmouth County Police Department on their relentless efforts in pursuit for justice for Tyrita. They kept us informed on a weekly basis on the investigation; we never thought for a minute that they were not on the case. We had a planned fundraiser on Saturday, 8/20/2016 to support her children , the outpouring of love and support was truly overwhelming. We thank you all for showing us how much love you have for Tyrita. She will always be in our hearts, so when you need a smile or pick-me-up just remember her sweet smile. Our Tyrita 411;
WE LOVE YOU, THE FAMILY.
Memorial is scheduled for this:

This week, authorities said that her attackers became her killers: Sweeney, 33, of Tinton Falls, and Andre Harris, 32, of Long Branch, have been charged with Julius's murder and with the first attack on her in November. Julius's body was found under 3 feet of soil in the backyard of Harris's home on Joline Avenue in Long Branch, according to authorities. Police haven't disclosed how Julius was killed, or what the killers' motives might have been.
"Everything in Long Branch didn't add up," says James Julius, Tyrita's brother. "One day [Sweeney] said one thing, that she dropped her at the train station to come home. The next day it was that she never went to the train station. She helped with the search the first day and ever since then hasn't been around, which raised a whole lot of suspicions, too. This happened in your neighborhood. Why aren't you helping more? Why aren't you supporting the family? It starts to make you think."

Dear family, friends, and supporters,
As many of you may already know, Tyrita Julius is missing. She was last seen Monday, March 7th. The family is distraught because only four months ago Tyrita survived being shot eight times. Tyrita is still in recovery. Police never caught the person who did it or determined the motive behind the shooting.
Tyrita has two teenage children, large loving family and an even larger extended family. My sister, Tyrita's mother sits home not wanting to leave the house because she is waiting for Tyrita to come through the door. It is heart-wrenching not knowing where your child is or if he/she is safe. Tyrita's two children are also awaiting her safe return.
Tyrita is loving, caring and outgoing. She is loved by so many. She is lovingly named "Tyritafouroneone" because she makes sure all of our special moments are captured and shared.
Tyrita has always been there for anyone who has ever needed her, and now I ask that we be there for her.
During Tyrita's three month hospital stay and her daughter's short stint, a sizable hospital bill was accrued. Tyrita's health insurance did not completely cover the hospital charges, which makes Tyrita responsible for the remaining balance.
The funds collected will provide for Tyrita's two children during her absence and assist with her medical bills.
No amount is too small.
Her family just wants her home. Keep Tyrita in your prayers. If you cannot donate we ask that you still say a prayer in her name for her safe return.
Tyrita's aunt Bernadine and uncle Poncho are responsible for this account.
