Yasmin Acree’s adoptive mother dies

Per the Chicago Tribune: Yasmin Acree‘s adoptive mother, Rose Starnes (who was also her aunt by marriage) has died. She was 57. Natural causes. According to her family, she had diabetes and kidney problems.

For years, Starnes was tormented by not knowing what happened to Yasmin, said her older daughter, Shakelia Johnson. The woman spent a lot of time searching the neighborhood and city, but she also lay in bed crying, feeling helpless. Many times it seemed the case wasn’t important to anyone but her, Johnson said.

I hope she’s at peace now, and maybe knows what happened to Yasmin.
