I send my condolences to the Franklin family. This has really touched my heart and I too pray that GOD will be with this family during their time of grief.
Father GOD I pray that you will be with this family and strengthen them in the thing that saddens them. Touch their hearts O LORD and replace their grief with love and happiness of the memories that they possess of their loved one. Help this family to know that their loved one will forever be a part of their lives due to the lasting times of love, joy and happiness they shared in each others company. Let their spirits be lifted in knowing that although their loved one can no longer be with them, her memories always will and no one can ever take that away from them. In the name of JESUS, Bless the Franklin family JEHOVAH!
I will continually pray for You all and rest assured that GOD will always be with you during your times of grief.

My heart goes out to the family of Nailah. She appeared to be a very vivacious and happy young lady. Her spirit will be missed.

I am very hurt and saddened by this unspeakable crime. I did not know Nailah, but I am very proud of who she was and of her accomplishments. I, too, am 28 and is considered by many to be successful, sosee other young black women striving and achieving their dreams like I am it makes me feel proud. I was really praying that she would be found alive. I hope that the person (s) who did this to her receive's a severe version of GOD's raft. She did not deserve this. God Bless her family.

Reginald Michael Potts is the EX-BOYFRIEND, the one who made the threats to Nailah. He is also a suspect in this case. I found some shocking information on this dude. The myspace page is on private, He’s probably trying to hide. I’d like to have a man to man talk with this guy..seriously. After viewing the information under the link John posted, and doing some additional searches under this guys name. He’s definitely a hard criminal. The feds refer to him as a”Gang Member”. I just don’t understand. Nailah should have done a google on this guy. Ladies, when you meet a guy. It doesn’t hurt to do a google on the guy. Get his first and last name, and do a google. A few key strokes could save your life. You’d be surprise what comes up. If nothing generates from that search. Call the local police department and have them do a name search on the person. Just tell them you want to do a criminal records search on an individual you know. They’ll give you the info with no problem.
This Reginald Michael Potts guy even called the FBI Headquarters and taunted them. Told them you’ll never catch me. Isn’t that crazy! Also, he escaped from a Federal building in 2001 after being taken into custody in handcuffs. The article stated “The skinny Potts simply slipped out of the handcuffs after being left alone, and walked out of the building. This man is definitely a threat to society. He should have been taken off the streets permanently in 2001. The Feds are too busy focusing on making cases against pro athletes, and you have real thugs like Potts roaming the streets. I’m pissed right now, even if he’s not the person he still needs to be locked away. Personally, I think he is the one. He makes these threats to Nailah and all of a sudden she’s dead now. Leaving the family with painful memories. They didn’t even get a chance to talk to her. Just to remind her that she’s loved. I’m sure she knew, but they didn’t get a chance to say it. This beauitful family did not deserve this. There hearts will ache forever. Such a Tragedy!!!
Someone anyone please post when the perp is caught. I can’t wait.

Reginald Potts is the suspect… google him and you will find this link.

We pray that God reveals the criminal that did this very soon. This was a horrific crime. We had a chance to view her myspace page and can tell from her own words that she was a beautiful and kind person.
