Always in my heart my baby girl…My heart is torn into a million pieces, I cannot bring myself to accept the reality of losing my love, my child, my firstborn, my everything. I wish I could rewind time my baby, I will see you soon. Mommy loves you to infinity and beyond my “lilo,” my lovee. Rest in peace my love, rest in peace,” Barnes wrote.ABC8news reported on Monday that Barnes said that “Vanessa always wanted his love and for him to be a part of her life. When she turned 18 she got in contact with her father. Even after telling her countless times that he was not a good person, she still went ahead and moved in with him.”Barnes said Vanessa’s life took a tragic turn when she tried to protect Samlall. “Vanessa took Leona back to her mom in Virginia, not knowing that her father was following her,” maintains Barnes.Since last week, investigators had been chasing leads in Orlando, New York and Connecticut in their search for Zaman.last_img
