This is so sad to hear about Tisha. She was a sweet young lady and a good friend to my daughter. The did so much together and now she is gone. My prayer go out to her family. May she rest in peace.

Tish was one of my good friends and she will be missed definitely. Nice to know the police didn't do their jobs, I had no idea they already knew. But no one knew her pain but her and I hope that she lives on free of the agony that we were not subject to.
