Hi, my name is Tabi Flores. Meshay Melendez, 27 and Layla Stewart, 7 are my beautiful nieces. For months, Meshay worried for her life and that of her daughters. She had a domestic violence protective order against her ex-boyfriend who tried to shoot and choke her in December of 2022 but the case would not be heard in court until March 2023 where he was arrested and charged with breaking the no contact order and for the drive-by shooting in an attempt to harm or worse kill my niece. This monster also in addition to the charges in Clark County Washington was on bail for murder in Arkansas and yet Clark County Court still released him on bail for the attempt on my niece in December.
Clark County court released him on bail which he paid and got out with no ankle monitoring, two days later on on March 12th my nieces Meshay and her 7 year old daughter went missing. Their bodies were found ten days later on March 22nd.
No parent should ever be faced with burying their daughter let alone their granddaughter and now my distraught sister must do both. In an effort to cover the high cost of the funeral and legal battles we have launched this GoFundMe page.
