  1. Hi Slauson Girl,

    I read about Micquel’s murder on KTLA’s website and it was incredibly tragic to hear her mother’s story! I can’t imagine how she manages to stay so strong after losing her daughter, the father of her daughter’s child AND her son to drive-by shootings! She spoke so eloquently about how street violence has left her granddaughter an orphan. The LA Times did an excellent article on the murders of Barbara Pritchett’s sons; both of whom were shot to death within a few years of each other.
