Members of the New Black Panther Nation joined a Texas mother outside of the Cass County Sheriff’s Office yesterday, calling for a more thorough investigation into the murders of Zi’Ariel Robinson-Oliver, 9, A’Miyah Hughes, 8, and Te’Mari Robinson-Oliver, 5, which were initially treated as an accidental drowning by the lead investigative agencies. Recent autopsy reports have shown that the girls were strangled and had suffered lacerations to their faces, leading law enforcement to believe that foul play was involved.
The tragic deaths left their family with so many questions. Recent autopsy reports have shown that all three girls were brutally strangled and had suffered lacerations to their faces. This heinous act has left many wondering how such a thing could happen in our county.
We are hurting with this mother and her family because we don’t understand how three beautiful little black girls could be murdered in this county, yet the lead investigative agencies did not even know it was a murder. They looked at it as an accidental drowning. This lack of action is unacceptable and has left the community feeling outraged and fearful.- Quanell X
In an effort to support the grieving mother and demand accountability for the lack of progress in the investigation, the New Black Panther Nation became involved in the case. Their goal is to bring attention to the tragic deaths of these young girls and to ensure that justice is served for their families. Members of the New Black Panther Nation traveled from Houston to Linden, Texas to join the childrens’ mother yesterday for a protest outside of the Cass County Sheriff’s Office, to demand that the Texas Rangers involve the FBI in this investigation.
Every citizen in this county, no matter what your race, class or status, should be outraged and concerned that a child killer is on the loose. We are demanding answers, and that’s what we want.
The Texas Rangers, the Cass County Sheriff’s Office, and the Cass County District Attorney’s Office are asking for any new information that could lead to an arrest in this case. Anyone with information to come forward and help bring justice for these innocent girls. If you have any information, please call Texas Ranger Josh Mason at (903) 255-5727.
