BIRTH: July 13, 1995
DEATH: December 1, 2010
Raquan, 15, was shot and killed while standing on a street corner. There is no motive for this senseless murder.
He was shot multiple times in the head and body. He was taken to the hospital where he died an hour after arriving.
Raquan was well known throughout the community and became even more popular when he enrolled in Edmonson-Westside High School.
With his infectious smile and generosity towards everyone, he soon became a heartthrob at the high school. During his short time at EWHS, he won numerous awards, which included: Honor Roll, Perfect Attendance, Most Likely to Succeed, Most Likely to Be President, and Prettiest Smile.
In 2009, with just a few days left until the final decision was made, Raquan decided that he’d take a shot at running for the Homecoming Court, which he was very happy and excited to announce that he’d won.
Then his life was taken senselessly…
Raquan’s murder remains unsolved.
