UPDATE: 3/8/14 – The cook County Medical Examiner’s Office has confirmed that the remains belonged to Latasha. Latasha was found frozen, in the fetal position, wrapped in garbage bags. A scarf was tied around her eyes like a blindfold. Her legs were bound with a cell phone charging cord. The examiner concluded that Nevitt’s death was a homicide by “unspecified means,” the same finding as in the Tiara Groves case, wrote the Chicago Magazine.
UPDATE: 3/6/14 – Latasha Nevitt, the woman who disappeared from her home in Chicago has been one of my most popular stories on MPofA with lots of speculations on what happened to her.
Now police believe they may have found her body in an area where water workers go to turn off or drain water in Morgan Park, which is located near her home, according to WLS news.
Around 10:45 on Wednesday morning a city water worker found a body near West 107th Place and South Loomis Street. They said the woman appeared to be in her 30s but I would think that there would be only skeletal remains left, so they may be going by her clothing and jewelry, also.
The body was in a heavy-duty plastic bag and “stuffed” into the space.
Previous story: Latasha Nevitt, 30, was last seen by her husband, Isaac Nevitt, who said she left her house on the 1300 block of West 107th Street to walk to the food mart and liquor store on 112th street, east of Vincennes and never came back. He reported her missing on October 14.
Latasa is a mother of three children and is attending school at Everest University to become a dental hygienist.
There has been no activity on her cell phone
Her mother, Brenda Morgan has searched areas around West 107th Street and South Vincennes Avenue, where Latasha was last seen, but could not find her or any clues as to what happened to her.
Morgan says Latasha had everything to live for and was doing well at Everest College. She doted on her three children, 10-year-old Ariel and her 2-year-old twins, Brian and Ryan.
