PA - Iris Tyson, 23, South Philadelphia, 8 May 2011

Pretty Iris Tyson aged 23 set out to get her mom a card for mother's day from her South Philadelphia home. When Iris hadn't returned from the store her parents called police and reported her missing by 6:00PM.

Sadly Iris's father had to identify her body which was found two miles away in a weed strewn lot. It appears Iris had died from blunt force trauma to her head.

Just as sad is her parents had called local TV stations in hopes they'd be able to help. News folks came out and interviewed them but never ran the story.

This is so sad. I live here and had no idea a beautiful young woman was missing for that long. Over and over again we see missing people overlooked due to race or socio economic backgrounds. Iris deserved media attention IMO. Now her poor parents are left to wonder what happened to their daughter when she set out to the store on Mother's Day. RIP pretty young lady. People do care.

Nada, T. Her cousin said there's no way Iris would have been there on her own accord.

The only thing struck me was Iris's dad said she was standing at the door prior to going to buy the card. I wonder if she was waiting on someone?

Another beautiful young woman who leaves behind a pond of broken dreams, fed by a river of murder.

So tragic.

PHILLY COPS BAFFLED BY BRUTAL IRIS TYSON MURDER

Her sister Carol Leidy said that Iris was very close to her parents and particularly her mother and that everyone looked up to her. Irish hoped to be a veterinarian.

She said: "We made a bond - that she would be the godmother to my first child someday and that I would be the godmother to her first child. Now I'll never have that."

I hope her family and friends are able to find some comfort in the midst of their grief. How incredibly sad.

Resqx, did Iris live relatively close to where that creep just tried to abduct the little girl? Again, I don't know that part of SP real well. I'm thinking it's close. Makes ya wonder.

Beautiful girl, Iris was. My heart breaks for her family. I still can't shake how they said she had been looking out the door. On the surface it's like big whoop everyone looks out the door, but it seems like she was maybe waiting on someone.

Special thanks for bumping the thread.

According to one of her missing person posters, Iris Tyson was last seen at 4th & Ritner streets, which is only a couple blocks away from where the little girl was nearly abducted, near Lee & Porter streets.
Iris' body was found down a dead end street in an overgrown lot amid rotting rowhomes on South Sydenham Street, near 16th & Federal.
Most certainly, Carlos Figueroa-Fagot should be questioned about Iris Tyson's disappearance and murder.

sorry just saw your post.

very close by.

what bugs me is the police refused to take it seriously...the press also. i read about it on facebook where her friends and family were asking for help. the cops wouldnt listen right up until they found her body.

No apology necessary. Thank you.

Having to agree with O'Really. How long was that guy prowling South Philly?
