Cyber Vigil for Ka’Sandra Wade & Domestic Violence Resources #RememberHerName

Pittsburgh bloggers are organizing a cyber vigil – writing posts and sharing information on social media about Ka’Sandra Wade.


If you are not familiar with the death of Ka’Sandra Wade – here is a summary from the Pittsburgh City Paper:

Wade was found dead of a gunshot wound on Jan. 1; her boyfriend, Anthony L. Brown, killed himself during a subsequent stand-off with police. Police say Brown confessed to killing Wade, but over the weekend, the Post-Gazette and other media outlets reported a tragic coda: Wade had called police to her home on New Year’s Eve. But the call was interrupted, and though police were dispatched to the scene, they did not enter the apartment or speak to Wade. Brown reportedly did not allow them in, or even open the door, while assuring them everything was all right.
