RI - Ashley Masi, 24, strangled in her Providence home, 31 March 2015
Ashley Masi, 24, who recently moved to 214-216 River Ave., was proud of her children and her new place, said friends and her mother. She hoped one day to become a nurses' assistant. She also needed money.
Early Tuesday afternoon, while her mother watched Masi's twin 6-year-old daughters at her home and a cousin took her infant daughter out of the apartment, Masi posted an advertisement as an escort on Backpage.com. Sometime that afternoon, a man was seen entering the apartment house, according to Masi's mother. Around 5 p.m., the cousin found Masi dying and called police...
On Tuesday, Bleecker said, she was watching the twins at her own house and talked to Masi on the phone. "She said, 'Mom, I'm doing the best I can.' The last thing she said to me was, 'I'll be there to get the kids.'"

How terribly sad~ let the storm wash over you, because somewhere beneath, there is your balance and wisdom ~

Maj. David Lapatin said the woman had not been dead long before her body was discovered.
Masi's mother told NBC10 that also inside the home at the time of the murder was Masi's youngest daughter.
“She loved that baby so much, that baby loved her so much, the kids loved her so much.”
Bleecker was watching her two other grandchildren at the time of the murder. Hours later, the Department of Child, Youth and Families came to her door and took the girls away.It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. ~ Aristotle
