Remembering Rashawn Brazell

On my way home from work the other day I noticed an NYPD poster about Rashawn Brazell outside the subway station. I was sad to realize the authorities were no closer to finding the sicko who murdered and dismembered the young fashion student, but I was pleased that the police have no given up on this soon-to-be-labeled cold case. It's now been two years since the 19-year-old's body parts were found on subway tracks in NYC (Rashawn's head has never been found), so please, if you know something about this case, contact the NYPD at 1-800-577-TIPS (anonymous tipped are completely acceptable).

Last year I reported about his distraught mother, Desire Brazell-Jones, who said at the time: "I want who did this off the street, and I want the rest of my child. That's the bottom line." Please help her.

Information about a memorial fund for Rashawn is available here.

UPDATE: An arrest was finally made. The suspect was also convicted of murdering another man.
