Those who knew and loved Jazmine say she was prideful, independent and strong. To them, her death may have been random, but it was still personal.
“We don’t know who did it. We don’t know anything at all. She was missing for two days. No telling who took her, or how long they had her,” she said.
The abandoned property is due to be boarded up within hours of the gruesome discovery.
Jazmine Trotter, missing since Friday, was discovered by family members behind an abandoned house located at 3980 E. 93rd. Her family is sickened by what someone did to her.
“I don’t understand why would anybody have done that to her,” said her identical twin, Yazmine Trotter.
Jazmine left for work at 4 am on Friday but never clocked in.
“Everyone was calling around asking have you seen her, heard anything from her?” said the victim’s niece Skye Duncan.
Days of searching on, and nearby, her regular walking route lead Jazmine’s mother and brother to a house on East 93rd. Her Aunt Carlitha Malone says they found her body in the backyard.
“For her to have been taken, and stripped from the waist down..and found in a hole…someone had to have seen something. She struggled. Her personal effects were found in the yard,” said Malone.
