I've got to say something about Haqikah Suggs

On June 1, 2007, I wrote about a story from Joliet where a teenaged girl was at first unidentified and there was something of a digitally created composite sketch for her. Anyone who watched the news that day finally knew this young girl's identity.

Haqikah (pictured above) was also known as Kekah. And since we discovered that she had been found dead in a park in Joliet I've been getting comments in that original post probably from friends and family who may well miss her. They very much keep her in their thoughts. That last comment I received on the first of this month.

In fact I got two comments on this story for this year the earlier one for the year posted on the blog back in February.  Three were comments were posted in the post in 2009. And finally the post was largely new when two comments were posted on June 6, 2007. Obviously there are people out there who still care about her and this story.

In the past, perhaps a year or so, Googled to see if there had been any updates to her murder. Unfortunately I had found that there had been no real updates as to who murdered her.

So I think it's totally apropriate to put her name and face out there one more time. One story with her name in it involved a possible link to other murders in Joliet. Perhaps a serial killer was loose during that time period. Of course that story from WBBM-AM was published in December 2007. Perhaps since then we know nothing about who murdered the 14 year old girl.

Since I see that there are people who still care about her or at least this story. That warrants this post today. Hopefully there can be closure for those who care about this young lady!

It's 2012, I've moved away from Pilcher Park, and I still think about her. I was in highschool when they found her and it shook me up so much and literally made me sick when I heard the story. I didn't know her, but I'm so angry that someone could have done something so horrible and gotten away with it. Even worse because she was so young. I hope this will one day be solved.

Im so happy to see that there are still people who care about Kekah...I dread reviewing her story knowing the creep that did this could possibly be in the midst of even now...she knows she was loved and adored and may she forever live on in our hearts...#loveyoubabysis
