I remember her, Dawn was a good girl and a nice girl. My parents lived a block over and I can remember seeing her earlier that day and I remember hearing the sirens those wee hours and going out onto my parents balcony with my dad and hearing the sirens and commotion but mostly I remember the smell. I went to school with Dawn and what happened to her was horrific. I don't know who is responsible for it but more should have been done.

Her boyfriend was suspect but whatever suspicions they had about her father were dropped. Her father was hard on her, and I guess he was no picnic but I don't think he would have killed her and the way she was killed was beyond horrible. It was overkill the violence that was done to her.

I went to school with Dawn. We were in the same grade. She was pregnant at the time of her death & her boyfriend was a suspect. There was talk about her father, because her boyfriend was black & I guess he was against their relationship. She was stabbed to death with scissors and set on fire. She was alive when they took her to the hospital. Her boyfriend was there at the time and claimed some guys from Detroit did it. Dawn had snuck out to meet him in the alley in the middle of the night. I can't remember his name. I want to say Clyde, but I could be way off. I remember praying that she would recover and tell us who did it. Her case just disappeared & nobody ever spoke about it again. It still makes me sick.

His name was Eddie Richardson. I came across his obituary a couple of years ago it said he died of a rare blood disorder. Eddie was tried 2 times and both ended in mistrials.

Dawn was one of my best friends I still miss her daily. I still remember getting the call that she had passed. I wish they would try again to solve this with all the new technology. I can't believe it has been almost 22 yr ago

I went to lunch with Dawn at South Marion Burger King. You know the hangout. She told me at lunch that day that She had just found out she was pregnant. I feel as though there was two people killed that gruesome night. Although the baby held on for a couple more days. They had Dawns body on life support for the baby. There was alot to what went down that day that most dont know. She was an amazing friend. And she had this inner strength that you had to know her to see. Ive never forgotten her. Every few years I look to see if theres ever been anything done about it. Im always sadly disappointed to find out no. She had so many secrets she held inside that I think quite a few people were over looked. I'll never forget her. Never.

Dawn was an amazing girl. She was one of my best friends. Her I was pregnant at the same time. I remember finding out at school what had happened to her and was devastated. I couldn't believe how someone could be so evil. Until this day I pray the killer of her and her unborn baby is found. I testified in her case and so did my mother. She was at my house almost daily. Her father didn't like that very well because of my race. Most of the letters she wrote me told some horrific stories. I gave them to the police and of course was never able to get them back because they was kept as evidence. I so miss her she was a wonderful person.

Someone said she told several people at school that if something ever happened to her to let the police know a girl named Dana troyer is to be looked into because she has been so jealous of dawn since justice middle school and that she even threatened to kill her or have someone kill her.
