AL - Tavaneka Sellers, 18, Birmingham, 12 May 1998
The homicide of Tavaneka Sellers remains unsolved 18 years later.
On May 12th, 1998, Tavaneka Nicole Sellers was a missing person.
On May 30, 1998, Nicole's body was found in a shallow grave in the 5400 block of 30th Way North near the North Birmingham, AL landfill. Her body was enclosed in a black trash bag. There were no clothes and only one ring (the one her ex-boyfriend gave her). She always wore acrylic nails and some of them were missing as well. She was identified by her fingerprint cards that her mother had taken when she was a toddler.
Nicole worked at Baby-R-Us and attended Ensley High School. There was no money taken. One uniform for work and a school uniform and her black mesh backpack was missing. She never made it to school nor to work.

Sellers’ mother said all the time passed has taken its toll on her, but she isn't giving up hope completely on finding out what happened to her daughter.
“Over the years, my heart has hardened, so it's like I’m not begging for answers anymore. I know when God is ready, it's gonna happen. In His time, not mine,” Vera Sellers said.

The missing and murdered cannot cry out for Justice. It is the duty for the living to do so for them.
