DOTHAN, Alabama (WDHN) – “They make it so easy,” said Precious Warren’s cousin Angela Hill. “Looks like you can kill someone and you actually don’t have any consequences behind it.”
Precious Warren was shot and killed in downtown Dothan on Walnut Street 4 weeks ago.
Carmen Kirkland, 31, a murder suspect in the shooting, was released on bail on November 8 and the victim’s family are seeking justice.
Community activist groups in Dothan gathered with Precious Warren’s family to talk about the case and find ways to publicly support and bring justice for the murder of their daughter, sister, cousin, mother and friend.
Precious’s family members contact the district attorney every week and they still don’t get the answers they want.
“And we’ll keep calling,” said LaShenia McNair, Precious Warren’s cousin. “We will keep reaching out until we hear something from someone that makes sense because it doesn’t make sense.”
“So in the end, God has the last word, but I stand here today confident, knowing that justice will be done. We are not going to stop, we are not giving up, we are not giving up. We are not backing down. We will get justice for Precious Warren, ”Hill said.
The family have heard from several different people and groups as they fight over this and other murder cases that have had similar results.
“Find out how, as a community, can we come together and support law enforcement, support the prosecutor’s office to resolve these unsolved murders that have taken place in the city,” said the executive director of Equally Yoked Community Outreach, Derrick Oliver.
The community wants justice for Precious, but they also want justice for the family and for her children who no longer have a mother.
“She has children. Precious has five children that she will never be able to hold again, she will never be able to see them again, ”said Hill.
Warren’s family told WDHN News that they will continue to fight for justice in this and other unsolved cases, but that they will also host events to honor the life of Precious Warren.
