    How awful. I'm glad they were able to save the baby. I hope her mother pulls through, too.

    Why would the kidnappers pose as FBI agents? Oh, my. I was thinking that I would get away from the men as fast as possible if they claimed to be FBI agents because there's no reason the FBI would be looking for me. UNLESS ... I was an FBI informant. That would make sense. Could Brown and/or Brooks have been supplying the FBI with information on a group/gang involved in criminal activity (perhaps a previous murder) and they discovered that Brown and/or Brooks were FBI informants? How horrible that Brown died and Brooks is clinging to life. Doubly tragic if they suffered for doing something good and should have been protected.

    I wonder where the 8-month-old was when the abduction occurred.

    Channel 2’s Steve Gehlbach spoke with the victim’s aunt who says the family has ideas about who may have done this and who they were targeting.
    “They were asking specifically for Jaronta’s stepfather, so we’re stating that maybe he could have been the exact target,” said Myesha Brown.
    “One of your friends is bound to talk. Whoever had anything to do with this situation, they need money. One of them is bound to spill the beans. It was all over money to begin with, so somebody is bound to talk,” Myesha Brown said."

    Sadly, Ms. Brooks passed away yesterday.

    Police are also investigating a second kidnapping with similar circumstances.

    I just saw this on FB. So sorry to see that Briana died. This is a strange case though.

    I don't think so. I've seen celebrities do it in pics, but idk exactly what it means.

    looks like "hang loose" or the heavy metal "hi" sign. Both are common gestures.
