Roshawna Stevens

Age 15

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Sarah with the long box braids

Her family called her Sarah. She wore long box braids and a pair of smart-looking rectangular glasses.

It was supposed to be a welfare check, but when police knocked on the door of a small house in Oklahoma City, they found her and two others.

Roshawna Stevens, 15, was found shot to death alongside her mother and her mother's fiancé just before 12:30 a.m. on Jan. 7, 2019. "I just want justice,” Roshawna’s grandmother said, “My daughter ain't here no more. My granddaughter ain't here no more. They gone."
