Susana Morales Was The 16 Year Old Found Dead
The Gwinnett County Police Department in Georgia will hold a community meeting on Thursday to address the concerns of Hispanic residents in the Norcross area about recent crimes, including the kidnapping and murder of 16-year-old Susana Morales. The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Universal Church on Singleton Road and will be attended by Chief J.D. McClure, command staff from the West Precinct and Criminal Investigations, as well as Spanish-speaking officers and interpreters.
The police department has reported a number of tragic incidents in recent weeks, including homicides involving youths and overdoses among teenagers, which have directly affected the Hispanic community in Gwinnett. False information about these incidents has been spreading on social media and by word of mouth, prompting the department to host the meeting to provide accurate information and answer questions from residents.
One of the incidents involves the murder and kidnapping of Susana Morales, whose body was discovered by the police after she disappeared while walking to her home near Norcross last summer. Former Doraville Police Officer Miles Bryant was arrested and charged with her murder and kidnapping, as well as other crimes, in connection with her death. Another incident involves the death of Rodrigo Floriano Mayen, 17, who was found dead in a home a few days after he was reported missing. Police have said he died from an overdose.
Police officials have emphasized that they will not be able to discuss specific details about active cases during the meeting but will be able to discuss department procedures for people who have concerns about what is happening in their community. The meeting provides an opportunity for residents to ask questions and get answers directly from the Gwinnett Police Department. For more go to Gwinnett Daily Post
