Body of Nailah Franklin found.

More on story here.My condolences go out to the friends and family. Nailah went to my high school (Homewood-Flossmoor) and graduated the year after me. Her sister is also a respected member of the stand-up comedy community I am lucky to be a member of. So, turns out we shared many friends of friends and I was really hoping this would turn out well.I hope this brings much needed closure and the community built around her can begin to grieve now.Regular updates can be found on this thorough crime blog.Update: My wife tells me that Nailah’s sister went on NPR and stated that there was some dispute over whether the body had officially been identified by the uncle, but I can find no documentation of said dispute online.

    Thanks for the link, from a former Atlanta Metroblogger. It has been confirmed since your post that the deceased was Nailah O. Franklin.

    just need to capture the person who did this, things like this happen in our community everyday, the kids control our street, while we stay silent. we don’t support our kids enough, go to any event at a black school, no parents participation, parents make time for your kids and keep them safe, mother’s kick the drug habit and be parents again. we are out of control. the government owes us nothing. it’s up to us to educate ourselves. Oprah owes us nothing
