Sasha Avonna Bell was one of the first people to file a lawsuit alleging her child was poisoned by the water in Flint, Mich. But her life was brought to a tragic end when she was shot dead this week, reports Michigan Live.
Bell was found dead in a townhouse in the city on Tuesday along with another female victim, Sacorya Renee Reed. A 1-year-old child found at the home was uninjured; it isn’t clear if the child is Bell’s. Police say one person is in custody, though no one has been charged.
“Sasha was a lovely young woman who cared deeply for her family, and especially for her young child,” her attorney, Corey M. Stern, said. “Her tragic and senseless death has created a void in the lives of so many people that loved her. Hopefully, her child will be lifted up by the love and support from everyone who cared deeply for Sasha.”
