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.
