I am so sorry to read about this. It is such a tragic ending to a young and hopeful life. My prayers go out to the family, friends and co-workers that are grieving her loss.
I am really happy that TGIF's is trying to help her family out.

My sincere sympathy to Tasia's family. She was our son's friend. We had the privelege of taking her to church one Sunday morning. She was bright, sweet, and looked forward to a great future. I think that she was taken before her time, and my heart breaks for so many young people out there who's lives are cut short. Rest in peace beautiful Tasia. Our prayers go out to her family.

<quoted text>First of all nobody knows what really happened. It could have been a boyfriend or a stranger or maybe she did it to herself. None of us know. Secondly if you read the other post this person wrote you would understand the craziness of this person. He posted that I was born to be a victim. This person has a warped way of thinking. What I got and others got is that he is blaming Tasia for choosing a loser.
This is life and reality. How many times do we hear, " He/she was a good person and I never would have imagined they would do something like that."
None the less, there is a family who is grieving the loss of this young beautiful girl.
We should all show some humanity and compassion for her loved ones.
Yeah you are a victim if you are naive enough to think she didn't know what she was getting herself into. She made the choice to be with someone who was obviously abusive. If it WAS her boyfriend, I could bet a million dollars she knew it was bound to happen. I've been in that kind of relationship and some girls just aren't strong enough to walk away. Life goes on.

Most people are now raised to believe it is never their fault. They can throw caution to the wind and always blame someone else. It's pathetic.

Regarding abusive guys...there are almost always signs of what he capable of. Many women choose to ignore them.

Ya know, a big juicy hot dog is a great idea! It's baseball playoff time and it would taste great, while watching the Giants-Phillies game!!

Thanks for the idea!!

MY condolences to Latasia's family and friends. I knew her, not too personally but she was a very lovely young lady. She always had a smile on her face and full of life. She had so much going for her. She will be missed.....

just to clarify, her boyfriend was only a suspect for the 1st 24 hours, he was out with friends that night and has a witness to prove it. That being said she was not the "dumb" girl that someone has made her out to be, and that her killer is still out there somewhere. Justice will be served to that person. Tasia you may be gone from this world but you are still here in spirit with us and thats why we continue to celebrate your life.

Wow what a tragic event so sad same age as my daughter. This incident is still under investagation it all happen right near where I live. The investigators will do their job and get to the bottom of what happen. Gun residue, forensics all that stuff. Regardless of the outcome a beautiful young life is over and that is sad my condolences to her family and friends.


I just wanted to know if they ever convicted anyone and if they found out what happened. She used to go to church with me and then we lost contact. I tried finding her for a year then I heard this news. I made it to her funeral but I never heard what actually happened. But lately I've been wondering.
