Now, LaToyia may Rest In Peace
It seems LaToyia Figueroa's remains have been found. An arrest in connection with her death has been made. One more Philly case of a missing person can now be closed off the books.
No one wants this kind of a conclusion. Everyone wants a Disney ending. All hoped and prayed the young woman would be found alive. Realists knew, more than likely, that would not be the case.
As heartbreaking and as horrible as this story has come to a close, we must all remember one thing - she was found. Her family can lay her to rest.
Sometime during your day, I ask everyone to not only give a moment of silence in LaToyia's memory, but to also pause for those whose families still have no end in sight for their missing loved ones.
