Black History Month: April Michelle Pickens

In honor of Black History Month I’m profiling one African-American MP every day on this blog for the month of February. Today’s case is April Michelle Pickens, a 29-year-old who disappeared from Asheville, North Carolina two days after Christmas in 2011.

I have a lot of pictures of April, but not much in the way of actual information — just the usual “it’s uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning.” She left behind five children.
