Houston, Texas – A community will come together for a Stop the Violence walk on Sunday to honor Tierra Horn, an 18-year-old whose body was found along Buffalo Bayou in north downtown Houston on Jan. 5. Horn had been reported missing by her family the day before after no one had seen or heard from her.
According to court records, Horn’s girlfriend, 24-year-old Shania Turner, has been charged with her murder, with authorities alleging that Turner strangled Horn out of fear that she had transmitted a sexually transmitted disease (STD). This tragic case has shocked and saddened the community, prompting them to come together and take a stand against violence.
The Stop the Violence walk for Horn is scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 28, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at James Bute Park at 512 McKee Street. The event serves as a way for the community to show support for the family and to raise awareness about the devastating impact of violence on individuals and families in Houston.
This gathering also serves as a reminder of the importance of speaking out against domestic violence and seeking help for those who may be in dangerous situations. It is a somber but necessary way for members of the community to come together in solidarity and demand justice for Tierra Horn.
As the community prepares to gather for the Stop the Violence walk, the memory of Tierra Horn serves as a stark reminder of the need for continued efforts to prevent and address violence. This event will provide a platform for the community to come together, honor Horn’s life, and advocate for a future free from such tragic incidents.
