Yahmire Curry

Age 18

Chester, Pennsylvania

Sister’s baby born the day after

In all four pictures, he wears black. In one he has a baseball cap, another a hood, another a winter hat, and in another, nothing covers his head at all.

On Feb. 4, he posted on Facebook: “I’m just not myself Right now 😔 wish these better days hurry up!” The comments were filled with reassurance: “It is bro just got to be patient” said one. “God got you,” said another.

On Feb. 11, 2019, Yahmire Curry, 18, was fatally shot in Chester, Pennsylvania, not far from his home. His death marked the first homicide of 2019 for the city. His sister posted on Facebook that she gave birth to a baby boy the very next day.
