hey nic,

i think your idea of documentation is rad. there's something really interesting that you're beginning to do, with documenting this kind of subject matter.

i've been working out a similar kind project on my own, but it hasn't hit the ground yet. it's cool to see your work.

it'd be interesting to colaborate with you on this. i like your process.

cool and rad are such strange words to use around something like this... Is this a picture of where my cousin's body was found?

Nic B. said...

yes it is.

Where can I find out more info on this story? I was looking up my friends name online and this came up with her name and the age is right. We went to high school together and don't know where her family is now. I really need to know.

I knew her since he high. See was way more than cinema. She was strong she was a survived a hard childhood. She lived her children even though it was a self taught lesson. In honor of her children let forget the cinema(missy) and remeber miesha.
