ITS NOT ABOUT THE MONEY, MONEY WILL NOT BRING HER BACK IT FOR EXAMPLE WHEN SOMEONE IS IN A CAR ACCIDENT AND THE PERSON DIES YOU CAN SUE THEIR INSURANCE AND IF THEY DO NOT HAVE INSURANCE YOU CAN NOT DO ANYTIHNG. AND THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO !! SO WHAT ABOUT MURDER!!! WITH SUCH GREAT EFFORTS TO COVER IT UP AND... IS NOT ABOUT CASHING IN IT IS YOUR RIGHT. IT WAS YOUR RIGHT TOO!! PEOPLE WITH ALOT OF MONEY COMITT OFFENSES AND GET FINED LOTS OF MONEY ORDERED BY THE JUDGE AND DO JAIL TIME. SO MATTER WHAT YOU DO IN LIFE THERE IS A CONSEQUENCE. SHE HAD THE GOALS SHE WANTED TO OPEN UP AN HAIR SALON SHE LIKED TO SING SHE COULD HAVE BENEFITED ON ANYTHING FOR HER FAMILY. YOU SEE ALOT PEOPLE BUILDING FOUNDATIONS FOR THEIR DECEASED FAMILY MEMBERS AS LONG AS THERE IS POSITIVE THINGS DONE IT WON'T BE ABOUT THE MONEY
We're sympathetic to the family of the victim, but can't actually read your comments because they're in all CAPS. That is the equivalent of shouting and it becomes noise for the eye, something to turn away from. Turn off your "caps lock" key and then you'll be easier to read.

5 million for a stripper. Only in America.
What about his family, who are also victims?
He wasn't even charged when the suit was filed so the bail argument doesn't hold any water. Also, the suit is "led by an aunt". KA-CHING!!!!!
It really takes an ignorant person with a small brain to stay on the dumb A** money topic.Some ones life is gone right now,(EVEN THOUGH YOU MAY NOT CARE)You are ignorant !!! If you dont have a heart you dont hae a mind.....My bestfriends family is the topic no one elses,they lost their (father,husband,son et.)We lost an sweet,loving,happygoing person,who loved to L.I.V.E reardless of what fools like you think...get new hobby besides not using your brain ..if you have one...it's not about you(your probaly related to him....R.I.P MAIA!!!!LOVED AND VERY MISSED!!!!

I am a concerned friend that just learned of this a few weeks ago... a whole year later. I had no idea. I hadn't spoken to her in a while... the last time I saw her was a few months before she went missing. She was on my mind a lot and then I suddenly saw the news on that man going to court and I saw her picture and my jaw dropped. Shamaia was a sweetheart and I miss her. I just hate the fact that when a white woman goes missing, she is everywhere and the news just can't stop talking about it... but when a black woman or woman of any other background goes missing, it is talked about for 30seconds and on to the next topic. I was highly upset that they kept refering to her as a stripper... that has nothing to do with the fact that she is a person.
If there is anyone that knew her, please reply to this message. God rest her soul.

P.S Fr everyone that is putting negative things on this site. If you don't have anything nice to say then don't say it. No one knows what they would do in that type of situation until you are suddenly put in it. If I were you all, I would humble myself very quickly because the Lord has mysterious ways of working and he doesn't warn you before they happen...

<quoted text>If you aren't after the money than why are you suing for $5 million? How is that going to get justice? If this guy did it (which odds are he did) he should be executed but why should I shut my mouth and what do I know nothing about? You just contradicted yourself in your response to my initial post which I still stand by.
I hope y'all were able to receive every bit of whatever y'all were asking for. He is a very sick man. A sick man to be think a 22 year old girl just learning adulthood wanted his ass. Then on top of that he kills and then burns her body it's sicking.
