On Friday, the body of a 16-year-old girl from Virginia has been found less than a mile from where she was last seen.

Fairfax police confirmed that it was Jholie Moussa, who had been missing for about two weeks when police found her body covered in leaves in Woodlawn Park. This was the second time police say they searched the park.

According to NBC 4 Washington, while the police are looking into the murder of this young woman, her parents claim that when they first reported their daughter missing, the authorities shrugged it off. They told them Jholie probably ran away and registered her into the National Crime Information Center database as a runaway juvenile.

“Based on the facts of the case, there is nothing that indicates that Moussa is in any danger,” county police previously said in a statement.

However, it’s obvious that was not the case.

The day Jholie disappeared, she seemed distracted after school her twin, Zhane Moussa, told NBC 4 Washington.

“She was doing my hair and then she stopped, for a good minute, to text some more. Then, out of nowhere, she was like, ‘I gotta go, I gotta go!’” she said.

After she left, Zhane said sent her a text message and got a weird response.

“She texted me that she was going to Norfolk,” Zhane said. “And I’m, like, isn’t that more than 3 hours away?”

However, they found Jholie’s body less than a mile where she was last found.

Her mother, Syreeta Steward, added that she missed a phone call from what appeared to be Jholie, but never heard from her again.

“Normally, she would have responded back to me. If she calls me and I don’t answer, she always follows it up with a text,” Steward said.

While the Fairfax police may have thought Jholie had ran away, the FBI lent a hand in the investigation on day after Jholie’s family posted a plea on Facebook for her to come home:

The authorities haven’t shared any leads with the public, but the Washington Post reports that Cyrille Moussa, Jholie’s father, told a local media outlet that Jholie received a call on Jan. 12 from a 12-year-old boy’s cellphone. The father said the boy later told him a man asked the boy to borrow his phone to place the call.

Naturally, Black Twitter had a lot to say about the way the police handled Jholie’s disappearance:

Julie Parker, a spokeswoman for the Fairfax County police, claims that the parents are wrong about the police not taking this case seriously from the beginning.

“Our understanding was that she had voluntarily left home and there were no signs of foul play,” she said.

Well now that’s not the case. Let’s just work to find her killer.

RIP Jholie.

  1. I am saddened by the idiots who have no regards for loss of life on this website and further more that cops come to work everyday and don’t want to do their job. I’m tired of our children going missing and it’s no big deal we have networks that are supposed to be geared towards us.tvone magics channel and sometimes bet.why don’t we pause on some of the foolish programming and do shows on our missing come up with an app for us by us. For our children’s sake. Roland can head it up something has got to change when it comes to us as a people and it’s got to change for our children

      Need to diversify and use all our resources. Roland can’t be the only one you look to…….we can grassroots. For example when she went missing someone could have started posting on Instagram, Facebook, etc. We need to transmit using these platforms as well. I agree on BET and TVONE, just think they’re not focused on grassroots community issues. What we can do is start a writing campaign that draws their attention to what really matters to the community. I understand your point, but in the interim how do we achieve our goals? Why couldn’t BAW run a banner? There are a lot of options – just getting people to execute is the problem.

    Racist police should have issued an Amber Alert. I see racists are also alive and well on this website. Kids do stupid things – including honor students. For that, they shouldn’t get the death penalty. Racists you’re on the wrong site talking about hood rats. Take off your sheet and hood, your eye hole is distorted. There was a white man who shot 4 people at a car wash, white man whose father is police officer beat to death a child, and your all time white man classic – molesting a 10 year old girl with wife and kids in the house. Take off that hood racists and get back in your site. We will mourn for this mother whose teenager made a naively trusted someone in Snapchat. Go away Satan, return to your perfect Klan world.

    These whores all use the same roadmap…….minimum 3 tats, different weave for every day of the week, must stick out tongue for all selfies, “heeeyyy gurl”

    There aren’t enough police to monitor every hood rat who decides they are going to disobey their parents and head to a party 200 miles away. Take responsibility for you actions Peeps, not every bad decision is the po-po’s fault. In fact, few if any, are.
