BIRTH: June 12, 1993
DEATH: August 18, 2007
Dairea, 14, was shot and killed by a stray bullet while walking out of a party store. He wasn’t the intended victim, but he became a victim, along with his family and friends, by his untimely death.
Dairea was referred to as a “Mama’s Boy” and he received an award, by his school, for exemplary behavior. He had a 3.0 GPA with all A’s in math and science. His mother said, “He never hurt anybody and he never back-talked me”.
This was a good kid, doing something with his life, going to school, making good grades, and had a loving a family, only to be brought down before he could even really reach the prime of his life. He was killed by a coward that shoots into the night with no care in the world as to who might suffer from their ignorance.
Dairea’s murder remains unsolved.
