UPDATE 6/10/17 – Robert Letroy Howard, 38, has been arrested for the murder of Naomi Jones, 12, that lived in Pensacola. The child was reported missing May 31, and her body was found by fishermen on Monday. A surveillance video showed Howard’s car by that same creek where Naomi’s body was found. I had just posted about Jadakiss McNeal missing. Is it possible that Howard may have something to do with Jadakiss’ disappearance? She went missing from the same area that Naomi went missing. They were both close in age. Jadakiss was also small for her age, maybe making her appear younger than she was. What we know about Howard is that he is from East Brewton, Alabama and convicted in 1999 for sexual assault and rape. We know he served 15 years in an Alabama prison for that conviction. Putting his release around 2013-2014, has he been in contact with other children since then? We also know that Naomi is believed to have met Robert through social media, in the beginning of her disappearance. Now we know that Howard went to the same apartment complex, Aspen Village Apartments, that Naomi lived in order to visit his girlfriend. Whether the police will consider there may be a connection with her disappearance and Howard is unknown at this time. Just because Howard and Jadakiss lived in the same town does not mean automatically he had anything to do with her disappearance, but he should be questioned anyway.
Original Story: Jadakiss “Jada” McNeal, 14, has been missing from Pensacola, Florida since March 15, 2016. She has not been heard from since. She is 4’9” tall and approximately 120 pounds.
