“Our thoughts and prayers are with the Kirksey family, and most importantly, Ashante’s children. Violence of this nature hurts our community as a whole. The healing process will take time.
Friends, family, and emotional support professionals will be on the front lines of helping those close to Ashante as they grieve. I am asking the community to do our part as well. Although we can not bring Ashante back to raise her children, we also can not let her death go without justice for her and her family and friends.
I am asking that anyone who has information on the whereabouts of Noel Flores to immediately come forward to the Warren City Police Department, clergy, community leaders, or whomever you are comfortable with. Ashante, her family, and our city deserve justice.”Director of Public Safety and Service Eddie Colbert
