"Now, Nancy’s attorney is seeking to have her statements to Wynn suppressed, alleging it was a violation of her rights to be questioned without first being given a Miranda warning.

On Monday, Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Bruce Beemer heard argument on the issue and viewed Wynn’s body camera footage that showed that initial interaction by Nancy with police."

Thank you for finding this! I was able to locate another with the video.

If they are successful at suppressing only the statements Nancy makes in the video, there’s not much to suppress other than her pretending not to know about a baby. Which of course was a lie.

Hopefully the Miranda rights were read right after that, which seems to be what the article states that @CCJD posted.

I agree. Won’t make much difference, except her dumb statement of “which baby?” or “what baby?”

Allegheny County prosecutors on Monday released police bodycam video showing 27-year-old Sharena Nancy talking to a Penn Hills officer who stopped her and questioned her about the whereabouts of Nalani Johnson. The Tribune-Review reports that the video shows Nancy repeatedly denying any knowledge of a child and saying “it’s a misunderstanding.”

“You better tell me right now where’s the baby at?” Wynn asked.

“Which baby?” she continued. “Officer, you’re making, it’s a misunderstanding, I think. Officer, I’m the Uber driver. I don’t know about any baby. You’re making a mistake. It’s a misunderstanding.”

The interaction continued like that for about six minutes. Then, Wynn told Nancy she had the right to remain silent.

Sharena Nancy. Another lying liar who lies. And murders children.

Thinking of Nalani this week. Yesterday marked two years since her abduction. She was found abandoned and deceased in a park, still in her car seat, 3 days later.

Reminder of the timeline.

Hello fellow Pittsburgher! I can't believe there's been absolutely nothing in the news about this case, yet WPXI loves to repeat stories ad nauseum about stupid stuff. It's heartbreaking that the case keeps getting put off.

Hey there.. Hello.. we are the black and gold!

I have been so disappointed by the lack of coverage on the case by local media.

I did a quick search and was glad to at least find this recent tribute to Nalani.
