    How devastating for her brother. Poor kid. I hope he has some good support for going through this too.

    The grief-stricken mother is speechless and still in shock, not able to comprehend the murder of her 13-year-old daughter Monae Turnage. She has told WJZ’s media partner, the Baltimore Sun, her daughter was shot and a local youth is being questioned in her death.

    (snip)

    The family says they were told to wait 24 hours before filing a missing persons report.

    But the victim’s brother and some friends went out searching for her. Just before 6 p.m. Sunday, they found her in an alley behind the 1600-block of Cliftview Avenue, her body covered with trash.

    “She does have some signs of trauma but we are unsure of what she was killed from,” Det. Donny Moses of the Baltimore City Police Department said.

    ITA. It makes no sense. But I think police have these rules where you have to wait 24 hours or even 48 hours to report a person missing (presumably in case they have just gone off somewhere and will come back). Well if the person is killed or kidnapped that gives perps a lot of time to cover up their tracks.
    Just my opinion

    I thought it was only adults that there was a 24-hour wait time. However, with Baltimore City cops it doesn't surprise me that they said that. They should be ashamed and I hope complaints are filed with the police department. I don't believe those rules apply to children. They may have thought she was a run away, nonetheless they should have checked it out. Her brother shouldn't have had to find her body himself. That has got to be terribly devastating for him.

    OMG! What a load of carp!

    Wait 24 hours before filing a missing person report on a 13 year old child???? Never!

    I'd like to know who gave them that information.

    Damn it with people and their unsecured guns! I'm not anti-gun. In fact I enjoy target shooting a great deal and have some rifles with no ammo in the house and one handgun. When my daughter was a child, they were removed from our home and kept at her uncle's house. She is an adult now, but still has some issues, so the one we have is kept in pieces in different locations. And I mean lots of pieces. I'm sick of these senseless deaths because of irresponsible adults. Monae had such a beautiful smile and wanted to be a pediatrician. My thoughts and condolences go out to her family.

    They are assumed to be a runaway until they've been gone for 24+ hours. Especially if they are a minority...

    A 13 year old doesn't surprise me. We've seen this with much younger kids.

    Alexis Patterson - 7 years old - Friday May 3, 2002
    Never showed up at school after her stepfather walked her to the corner.

    It took an hour for the police to respond at all. (Though she'd already been gone the whole school day.)

    7 year old Alexis was treated as a runaway.
    Because she wasn't allowed to take cupcakes to school that day.

    So police said let's give it the WEEKEND and if she's not home by Monday...

    She was 7 years old.
    SEVEN.

    The same thing happened with Amber Dubois. She disappeared on her way to school and they assumed she was a run-away even though she was getting her lamb that day and was super excited. I realize she was a teenager, but I think the cops need to go more with the gut feeling of a parent. A parent has a pretty good idea if their child has run-away or not. Precious time is being lost due to bureaucracy.

    Poor baby. Just a baby. Monae just wanted to go skating like any child does. Then other children shoot her.

    Forgive me if I offend anyone beforehand. I'd like to say first off this is B-More. I am not disrespecting the police of Baltimore as they see things we couldn't imagine. However, Baltimore is rough. Real rough. Still this is a child, and a young one at that. This nixes any preconceived notion cops or otherwise.

    Your 13 year old and I repeat THIRTEEN goes rollerskating. You're either there to pick them up or out looking for them if they don't return within let's say an hour of when skating closed. Soooooooo, 24 hour BS or not did her family just figure she stayed at someone's house? I'm not real clear on that. Also of course I am never blaming the victims weather they personally waited overnight or not.

    Let's not leave race out. Sorry, but this is how it goes, and I know many people are trying to change that. I thank them. If this was Suszie Q missing for three hours after skating wouldn't someone be looking for her? Examole the cops and an army of people?

    ****Don't go by me on regulations. I am not sure if it is State by State. You do not have to be a minor reported missing and you DO NOT have to wait 24 hours. Not if you're grandpop or a kid. Again that is here. I am hoping everywhere. I know this from two ways. One my dad who was a Detective here and two looking for my DD. She technically wasn't missing, but how would I know when she ignored my calls? For days? Traipsing around doing what she pleased in really rough neighborhoods. Her father could care less. Yeah I called and the wonderful police in my district said it's a misconception we have about 24 hours. You can call. You can make a report. Filly did and that got her a** to use the good manners and deceny I taught her from then on.****

    Sorry for the rant, but this is a little girl. A girl.

    Prayers for her family.

    Oh also police must go to the residence where the missing person lives. My ex husband was none too pleased to have the cops at his door and having to explain his 17 year old hadn't checked in and uhhhhhhhh he hadn't tried to call her to be certain she said where she was. Three days later? Really? The cops weren't amused either. I'm glad they let him know that's exactly why a 17 year old would go choose to live with a parent that basically didn't give a flip.

    I recently had to report my roommate missing, and he is an 46 year old adult. They didn't make me wait. (And yes we found him.)

    I can't believe that the police told them to wait, and I hope there are some reforms, and hopefully some restructuring within the police department. The way I understand it, it is up to the individual department whether there is a waiting period or not, so the police department is in a position to change that rule.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.
