I don’t know what to say about this because I am in no place to judge but I would really like to know what is it about these “boyfriends” that get it in their head that it’s alright to hurt people’s children. Mother’s need to listen to their kids when they say they are “uncomfortable” being around someone.
I don’t know about you, but if my children are uncomfortable around anyone whether it’s a boyfriend, friend, relative guess what that’s a tie that will be severed!!! That’s it, that’s all!!
Now we have a child dead, a nothing a** piece of work in jail not cooperating and a family grieving. It’s all senseless!!!
Read about the details as reported by WESH 2 (Orland0)
The body found in the woods in Osceola County on Friday is that of missing 16-year-old Alexandria Chery, according to her family.
Chery’s uncle, Ray Joseph, broke down crying as he told media on Saturday that the body is a 98 percent match to his niece.
“I don’t know what to feel right now. It’s very devastating,” he said.
According to Joseph, law enforcement notified the family late Saturday that the body was in fact Chery’s.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office has not confirmed that to WESH 2 News, saying in a statement Saturday evening that the results of the autopsy have not yielded a positive identification.
“The ME’s Office will exhaust additional efforts to complete this grim task. In the meantime, OCSO investigators will move forward with their tireless efforts as if the recovered body is that of Alexandria Chery,” the Sheriff’s Office said on Facebook.
The body was found in the same area on the Osceola County-Polk County line where Chery’s cell phone last pinged, and where deputies had been conducting search efforts the day before.
Joseph said closure is important, and he thanked detectives for their work and the community for their support.
“I want to say thank you to the city of Orlando. I want to thank the people who came out to support, the people who pray for us,” he said.
Joseph released a recent photo of Chery, taken just one day before she went missing, showing Chery beaming from ear to ear.
Joseph said he had taken his niece shopping and she was “happy and full of life.”
Now, he is pleading for justice, calling the only suspect in the case, 43-year-old Sanel Saint Simon, a coward and a monster.
Saint Simon, the longtime boyfriend of Chery’s mother, has been arrested and charged with two misdemeanors: providing false information to a law enforcement officer and attempted destruction of evidence. Deputies said he has been uncooperative.
According to his arrest affidavit, he is accused of cleaning blood spatter in the home and lying to detectives about his whereabouts on the day of Chery’s disappearance.
He is being held on $7,500 bail and has two “holds” on him related to his immigration status.
According to Joseph, Chery told a cousin she was afraid to be left alone with Saint Simon, calling him “creepy.”
Chery was last seen by her mother Rosalie Joseph on Monday morning at their residence in the Hawthorne Grove Apartments, located near the intersection of Old Winter Garden Road and Good Homes Road.
When Joseph was unable to reach her later that day, she contacted the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
Four days later, a decomposed body was found by a maintenance worker on State Road 532, between ChampionsGate and the Reunion Resort.
The body was found 30 to 40 feet from the road, but it is not known how long it was there or how badly it was decomposed. The medical examiner removed the body from the scene, and deputies sent Chery’s dental records for comparison.
A vigil has been scheduled for 4 p.m. Sunday at Carver Shores Park to help raise money for Chery’s family. A $3 donation is requested.
A prayer service had been planned for Chery on Monday at 7 p.m. at Kingdom Church, on Alahambra Drive. At this time, it’s not known whether the
Monday night service would still be held.
