    Does anyone think she could still be alive? Sadly I think it sounds slim considering the items Khalil Tatum bought before he killed himself. I live in the DC area and I still remember them searching kenilworth park for her remains after Tatum was found dead. Case still sticks with me and the DC police dept. holding back so much info. Something needs to be done.

    I remember watching the live feed of the search for him in the park that day and thinking we'd have answers. It is so frustrating that we still aren't 100% what happened to Relisha and where she is. I also don't think she's alive.

    This is so very sad yet, I believe, very true for the most part.

    We will never forget you, Relisha!

    KT bought lye and garbage bags, so I’m not surprised she hasn’t been found. :(

    Hey guys... I just started listening to a podcast Through the Cracks. It talks about Relisha.

    I still think about her often.

    These videos about Relisha’s disappearance just popped up on my YT feed:

    1 year ago:


    See comment at 5:55 by LE officer when reporter asks if she was seen coming out of the hotel room - She says they can not release this information, as far as what videos they have available to them, due to it being an ongoing investigation:

    In the above second video, note the Police Officer uses the words “wrong direction” re: the Grandmother (7:00ish). (Yes we all know KT is the perp, just noting FTR.)

    Additionally at the end of the second video, there is mention of another girl, age 14, who went missing. It was determined that she was a victim of sex trafficking, and sent to Los Angeles (making note to rewatch that part).

    As I mentioned, I do think that Relisha died at the hands at KT, specifically because of the trash bags and lye, but I just wanted to note, re: the trafficking of the above mentioned 14 year old victim, the words “homeless shelter” stick out, and I wonder (generally) and wonder if perhaps some of these monsters who participate in such atrocities start targeting children in these shelters, where they are extra vulnerable.

    So, re: 14 year old who was trafficked to LA, was that a “ring”, I wonder.

    I absolutely think it's a factor--they have mentioned how he would take her places, buy her things, etc. and I think being in the homeless shelter probably made her a target for grooming at minimum. Also, if her mom didn't want her in that environment or was just stressed/had her hands full she could have been more apt to let her get out of that shelter for a day (or any parent in that situation, not just Relisha's mom)

    I am listening to it too, which caused me to come back and skim these threads. I’m a little concerned about the journalist’s portrayal of MYT (she depicts her as a caring and devoted mother and grandmother and no mention of drug abuse and abandonment).

    I think about her always. I went down the rabbit hole of friends on fb and ended up in some reeeeally bad and scary places. I dont stop following a track easily, but thay one stopped me. And I will never stop thinking of Relisha. Whatever her fate was is awful. She is important and needs to be located.

    No. Just to men in other countries who had lots of photos around lots of kids and very disturbing friends lists. Some were at vacation type resorts. Made me very aware that if I ever travel, not to let my guard down around anyone getting too friendly, even when you feel safe at a resort.

    Saw this tonight while I was browsing through YouTube...

    I would like to hear thoughts if you all have any. I will be posting mine soon. I need to review the case and re-watch this a couple times before I write my reflections. I will make sure to post over the weekend...see you all soon! ;)
