21-year-old Tiara Pool is the woman who Jacksonville, Florida police say was stabbed to death by 19-year-old David Sparre after meeting him on craigslist.
There have been some more details released about Ms. Pool which makes the story even more tragic.
Ms. Pool was a mother of two children and was going to college. While she was married her marriage was trouble. Unfortunately, she made the fatal mistake of using craigslist to try to meet someone new.
As you can see I posted a picture of Ms. Pool which I normally don’t do. I did that because I wanted to show you one of the reasons as to why Ms. Pool’s murder has not cracked the national media.
The two reasons are, in no particular order, is that Ms. Pool is black and that this happened in the South. If Ms. Pool was white and this murder took place in the media-centric Northeast this would be a bigger story.
Hopefully, with sites like mine and others, the word can be spread of the dangers like this that lurk on craigslist and that victims like Ms. Pool will not be forgotten.
