Arrest in Nailah Franklin Case

December 10, 2007

Even though I’m in Dallas, I posted about Nailah Franklin in Chicago because for some reason I felt a connection with her. Maybe because she could’ve been my sister, my cousin, my wife.

The fellow bloggers at What About Our Daughters (link) bring word that an arrest has been made in the Nailah Franklin case. I’m glad they got him.

For Texas residents, there is a missing persons clearinghouse database. This is a link to the most recent. Glenda Furch of Fort Worth is still missing as well.

Missing Woman in Chicago: Nailah Franklin

September 24, 2007

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 a Chicago resident and is now missing. Three days after she was reported missing, her car was found on September 22nd in Hammond, Indiana (20 miles south of her Chicago home). Nailah Franklin is 5′2″ and weighs about 115 lbs. Pictures of her can be found at, 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.

If you have any information about the case, police ask that you call Chicago Police at (312) 746-9259.
