Someone I love was murdered

On May 31, 2018, the New Haven community’s lives tragically changed forever. Two children of the New Haven community lost their mother and witnessed their mother’s murder as they traveled home from visiting with family. This family has not only experienced trauma, but also financial hardship. 

Due to the nature of the crime, the victim’s children are being guarded twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week until the suspect is captured. With all of this being mentioned, the family’s lives have been turned upside down. The victim’s twin sister has accepted the role of guardian for her niece and nephew, while caring for her own two children. This role does not come with the much-needed assistance required to raise a child, much less four. 

The now family of six currently live in a 2-bedroom apartment because they do not have the finance to secure a security deposit on a bigger home. The children aren’t allowed to play outside and whenever the family would like to travel locally, they must be escorted by the police. 

 As a community, it would be very kind to put a smile on these children’s faces again. A summer family vacation, moving fees and an education fund for the children would be ideal. Prior to the tragic event, the family was scheduled to go on vacation, but had to cancel it because all their available finances were used for their loved one’s burial and providing for the decedent’s children. 

 On behalf of the most recent homicide victim’s Tyekqua Nesbitt’s family and the Victim Services Coordinator for the New Haven Police Department, I am requesting a generous donation from this organization to assist the family in moving forward and providing a healthy and safe environment for the children. 

 Thank you in advance for your donation. 

Sincerely, 
Officer Jillian Knox
