There hasn’t been any news information in the ongoing investigation of Cynthia Worthy’s murder. If you’ll recall Ms. Worthy went missing this past Friday after leaving to meet a man from Backpage. Her body was recently found in a Detroit alley. According to the coroner’s report, she had been stabbed multiple times in the chest. So far no person of interest or suspect has been named or apprehended.
I wanted to share with you a quote from The Detroit News from Cynthia Worthy’s mother.
She was a super-sweet girl who just got caught up doing something just to make some quick money,” Priscilla Harrison said Tuesday. “She was a good girl. She didn’t deserve this. … She’s got a lot of family and friends who are loving her and missing her right now.
A lot of sex workers think I hate them, that I want to see them hurt or destitute. Nothing could be further from the truth, I want to see them safe, out from under a trafficker’s control if they’re under it and preferably out of the lifestyle. The allure of money can be powerful but, in my opinion, it’s not worth the risk to willingly put yourself in the danger that these women face on a constant basis. If anyone who is reading this is thinking about going into the business I implore you not to. The risk to not only yourself but the trauma that your family could endure is not worth it.
Cynthia’s family currently has a GoFundMe site set up for her funeral expenses. I hope you can spare some money for a grieving and loving family.
As I said previously police do not currently have a suspect…
