Grief and despair in the Petro-Nixon family in Brooklyn, New York.
Their 16 year old daughter Chanel went missing on the 18th of June 2008 and they didn’t hear of her of her for a few days; the police came, four days later, to let them know the body of their daughter had been found, abandoned in a trash bag.
It seemed imposible; the girl had left home in broad daylight and she only had to walk a few minutes through a very crowded Brooklyn area up to the restaurant where she was to meet her friends.
She disappeared somewhere along the way and found dead four days later. The coroner’s office has said the girl had been strangled, but not sexually abused and she had been kept hostage for about 3 days before being killed.
The police suspect that whoever kidnapped her must have been someone she knew because nobody has witnessed any attack or assault in the area that day.
They also suspect a certain Draymond Coleman, accused of murdering another young girl living in the area.
The girl’s parents have offered a reward of 34,000 dollars for whoever provides relevant information that would lead to the arrest of their daughter’s killer.
