What's done in the dark will always come to light and although we're unsure of what happened to 40-year-old Tamla Horsford on the night of November 4, 2018, the good folks down at Black Twitter are making sure as hell we find out.

Tamla, who was found dead after attending a slumber party with a group of friends (who all happened to be white), was a mother-of-five, a sister, and a friend to many, and almost two years after her suspicious death, her case has finally been reopened.

Although Tamla's story initially began circulating in December of 2018, the late mother's tragic tale recently resurfaced and gained the attention of celebrities like T.I., Waka Flocka, and more than 500,000 petitioners who want answers expeditiously.

Here's what you need to know about her suspicious death:

Friends & Family Of Tamla Horsford Don’t Believe Her Death Was An Accident

The night of Tamla's death, she was found facedown on the patio by the homeowner's boyfriend. While her fatal fall was ruled an accidental death by medical examiners, Tamla's family and their attorney, Ralph Fernandez, argue that her autopsy reports reveal the contrary. In a statement, Fernandez said:

"Witness statements are in conflict. A potential subject handled the body as well as the evidence prior to law enforcement arriving. Evidence was disposed of and no inquiry followed. The scene was not preserved."

A Pathologist Confirmed That Tamla’s Injuries Were Not Consistent With A Fall

It was later found that there were no photos taken at the time of Tamla's autopsy, a practice that is unheard of in most police investigations. Evidence shows that Tamla suffered blunt force trauma as well as cuts to her wrist, hand, lower legs, and face, which could be signs of foul play. Hernandez explained:

"It appears Tamla was involved in a struggle. There were abrasions noted consistent with that scenario. There were parallel scratches to one arm."

In a 911 call made by one of the first witnesses to discover the body, Jose Barerra told police:

"She's lying in the yard, basically on the patio downstairs. She's not moving one bit. She's not breathing. I'm noticing a small cut on her right wrist. She's not breathing whatsoever. I don't know if this cut was self-inflicted."

A Witness Was Fired From His Job At The County Clerk’s Office Shortly After Tamla’s Death

Shortly after the investigation into Tamla's death began, Barrera, who was also the boyfriend of the homeowner, was fired from his job at the county clerk's office for illegally accessing case files, and while Barerra later denied any acts of foul play, it was an offense that many spectators noted was suspicious AF.

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
