Friends, family mourn death of woman found in sewer
Family and friends gathered to remember Latasha Nevitt Saturday afternoon at the spot where her body was found earlier this month.
Now they are praying for an arrest and hoping someone who knows something will come forward.
Lighting a candle, the 13-year old daughter of Latasha Nevitt, mourned her mother.
Nevitt’s twin four year old sons, her husband and her mother took part in the memorial at 107th and Loomis, the spot where the body was found on March fifth.
Nevitt’s mother and aunt both made an emotional plea for anyone with information to give it to police.
Nevitt was 30 years old when she disappeared in October of 2011. She was last seen at her home on the 1300 block of west 107th street in the Morgan Park neighborhood. The body was found close to her home.
Community activist Andrew Holmes lead the family in prayer. Dozens of loved ones gathered to remember the mother of three. Nevitt was also a studying to be a dental hygienist at Everett University.
Calling her death a “return to paradise” family and friends released balloons in Nevitt’s memory as a final goodbye.
The presence of Nevitt’s husband at the memorial did cause some tension. Some family and friends believe he was somehow involved in her death.
Nevitt’s mother says she hopes to cremate the body and will not have a funeral to spare her grandchildren anymore pain.
