A Sad, but Important Story

12 year-old Jahmeshia Conner's body was found, approximately two weeks after she was reported missing.

Chicago Police and National Center for Missing and Exploited Children labeled her a runaway, though her family insisted that she had never done such a thing before and now, her familiy and others are asking if the miscategorization might have lessened the urgency with which authorities treated her case. As of yesterday, the police were still investigating why the media weren't notified before it was too late.
