On December 6, 2015 Destacia Straughn, 22, and her 2-year-old daughter, Kenacia Amerson-Straughn were murdered in what appears t be a domestic violence incident. The community is sickened, mourning and all feeling the pain of loss. Police Officers from the Omaha Police department are trying to help.
While the normal job of the Police is to respond to reports of crime and apprehend criminals Omaha Police are responding to the communities feelings as well over this tragic loss.
The Police Department did apprehend a suspect in the case and did charge him and while that portion of the incident is still pending Officers are trying to brighten the area of the neighborhood to show their support.
The Northwest Precinct has been collecting donations of Christmas lights to string around the neighborhood in memory and honor of the two victims and to spread some much needed cheer.
