NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A month after the murder of an 8-year-old girl, her family is pleading with her killer to come forward and turn themselves in.
“This has been the hardest 30 days of my life,” said Rosalind Brown, the mother of 8-year-old Jada Page, while wiping away tears.
Family and friends of Page gathered Thursday, rallying again to catch the young girl’s killer. Page was gunned down outside her Northwest Miami-Dade home in August. The shooter remains at large.
“Everybody keeps telling me, ‘You gotta get up, and you gotta keep pushing, and you gotta keep going.’ It’s just so hard,” Brown said. “That was my baby.”
Dozens gathered in the rain at Northwest 95th Street and 17th Avenue with a clear message for the community: Please help find Jada’s killer.
“Finding out who committed this crime will not bring Jada back,” said Leah Wilcox. “She is resting with God and resting amongst the angels. But it can prevent these monsters from committing this crime yet again.”
This rally came hours after gun violence rocked a Miami Gardens neighborhood and injured three teens, Thursday.
Miami Gardens Mayor Oliver Gilbert III spoke out against gun violence at the rally. “Don’t just say something when a gun is fired. Say something before then,” he said. “Give us an opportunity to respond and investigate.”
Page’s loved ones said they will continue to rally every week until an arrest has been made.
