Name: Shanequa Quanee Sullivan.
Died: March 9, 2018.
Age at death: 23.
Cause of death: Murder.
Location: Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
When Shanequa was 11 years old, her mother was murdered, and her grandmother took custody of her. At 23, she was a small woman, only 4’11” tall. She loved social media. She was proud of learning how to use public transit. She was a creature of habit who did things the same way every time. Uncertainty made her freeze.
Shanequa worked at the Atlanta Airport as a janitor. After work, she always took the MARTA streetcars and buses home. On the day she went missing, a surveillance photo showed her trying to use her bus pass, and when she realized the card was out of money, leaving to return to the airport. There are also records of her making some calls from a co-worker’s phone.
That was the last anyone saw of her until her body was found in the river. She hadn’t drowned–she had been murdered.
Shanequa’s murder is unsolved. Her family is angry because police didn’t secure all of the surveillance video that might have shown Shanequa in the days after her disappearance. Because only a part of the video records was saved, the investigation may be handicapped in bringing her killer to justice.
