Kierra Coles missing Chicago
UPDATE 2/4/21 – Kierra Coles’ mother has stated that the infamous video of her daughter dressed in her postal uniform walking to a car that was seen nationwide was not actually her daughter.
Karen Philips told NBC5 news said she watched the video over and over but was not sure it was Kierra in the video. Click here if you want to see the footage but since it is not Kierra I didn’t post it here.
“It’s a mother thing. You just know your child,” Karen told NBC5. “That’s not her walk. She was a little bit smaller and a little bit shorter.”
So, Karen went to the police station to talk to them and she stated they told her at the time that it wasn’t her daughter.
“He says don’t tell anybody that’s not your daughter,” Karen said they told her. In fact, they said it was another woman who lived down the street and worked at the post office.
But, it goes farther than that, evidently, the police had another video that shows Kierra leaving her apartment with her boyfriend, Josh Simmons. They both left in separate cars and met up at an ATM where Kierra took out $400 and handed it to Josh.
NBC5 was very cautious about this new information and stated in their article that they requested an interview on the above information they had from Karen and a FOI request for the records on the case. Both were denied.
