How can you not hang your heads in shame and embarrassment Black America at what our racial peers are doing? Many, albeit not all Blacks, because of their behavior, have EARNED the prejudice heaped upon them.
Authorities confirmed Monday that one of two bodies found in a burned down house in Detroit on Saturday was missing White woman and mother Heidi Walker.
The second body found in the house has not yet been identified but is suspected to be Walker’s White 4-year-old daughter, Savannah. An Amber Alert was issued for Walker’s 4-year-old daughter, Savannah, on Friday after the two went missing from Livingston County on Tuesday.
Michigan State Police Lt. Mike Shaw said that the second body was too badly burned to make an identification and authorities are going to use DNA to determine the identity.
“It’s probably going to take us a little bit of time due to the fact that the fire and some of the different things that happened with the body of the second victim,” Shaw said. “[It’s] going to take us some kind of DNA testing to positively identify that body.”
The two bodies were found in a torched, abandoned house in Detroit on Lakeview St. near Forrest Ave. on Saturday morning. Though the second body hasn’t been identified as Savannah, authorities know it is the body of a child.
“There’s was a lot more damage done to the child than there was to the mother,” Shaw said.
A GoFundMe campaign was started to help fund memorial services. A Black person of interest, 33-year-old Marcus Hightower, turned himself in to police on Sunday morning. Police considered the Black man Hightower armed and dangerous. He was on parole for assault with intent to commit murder.
Detroit police chief James Craig said the Black man Hightower and White woman Heidi Walker, 38, had been in a relationship and there was a history of domestic violence against Walker by the Black man Hightower in the relationship.
Craig said it wasn’t clear if the two people were killed in the home or taken there afterward, but the fire was considered suspicious.“It’s not uncommon where a suspect will commit a crime like murder and try to cover their tracks by setting a fire,” he said. “It appears to be intentionally set (in an) abandoned house.”
