Death – Georgia family wants answers after mother of 3 found shot to death in Atlanta

Death – Obituary

It would be the last time the two would ever talk.

“When I called back, she didn’t answer,” Lekrysta said.

Mesha didn’t answer text messages, either. And she hadn’t been in touch with her mother or other siblings. That’s when Lekrysta said several family members jumped in the car to head to Atlanta.

“We honestly never thought she was in trouble,” Lekrysta said. “We thought Jamesha probably went out or was at work and couldn’t answer the phone.”

But the family soon got heartbreaking news. Mesha — a strong-willed woman who loved to sing — had been killed, but Atlanta police weren’t sure who was responsible.

“Out of my 32 years, one of my worst fears is to lose one of my siblings,” Lekrysta said. “We’re close. I’m a mama bear to all of them.”

Mesha’s roommate told the family that before she was found dead, Mesha and a man had been arguing over a PlayStation. The man told Lekrysta he had given her back the gaming console and that was the last time he saw her.

Atlanta investigators have not made any arrests in the woman’s death. The Trammell family is hoping for answers, though Lekrysta says it will never make sense. She is now caring for her sister’s children, ages 5, 7 and 9.

“We’ll never know fully,” Lekrysta said. “What could she have done to deserve this?”

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
