LaToyia Figueroa, R.I.P.

LaToyia Figueroa, the Missing Non-White Woman that we highlighted last month, has been found murdered. From The New York Times:
Police have recovered the remains of a missing pregnant woman and arrested the father of the unborn child in the death, authorities announced Saturday. The suspect, Stephen Poaches, is a former boyfriend of 24-year-old LaToyia Figueroa, who has been missing for a month. District Attorney Lynne M. Abraham said Poaches, 25, would be charged with two counts of murder and related offenses for the deaths of Figueroa and her fetus.

Authorities did not provide a motive or say what led them to suspect Poaches. Poaches' lawyer, Michael Coard, did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment. When Poaches was arrested in nearby Chester, police said he was wearing a bulletproof vest and carrying a pistol.
Our hearts go out to the Figueroa family - may the peace that transcends all understanding guard their hearts and minds.
