Jokisha Brown, was shot and killed at an Atlanta strip mall
while sitting in her black Mercedes SUV car on Friday July 1st just a
day before turning 36. The mother of a teenage son was waiting to get
her make-up done when a gunman walked up to her car and shot her dead
through the passenger seat.
Jokisha had been involved in an abusive relationship which she recently walked away from..
“She went through a hard, very, very hard time with this
breakup. She steadily voiced it, she feared for her life that something
might happen to her.” one of her friends told WSB-TV
She had also once escaped a violent kidnapping attempt by jumping
from a moving vehicle. Her ex, Alfredo Capote is the chief suspect in
her murder but he hasn’t been named as a suspect as nothing has linked
him to the killing yet. But police have been investigating him since
April for the rape and kidnapping of Jokisha.
