Some things are more important than politics. Like life.

This story really hit me hard and bothers me to my core, so I wanted to write about it even though it’s not based in Dallas.

Nailah Franklin is 5′2″ and weighs about 115 lbs. Pictures of her can be found at crimeblog.us, which is linked below.

Various news outlets have stated that Nailah was threatened by an acquaintance before she disappeared. Computers were also taken from her residence.
