Janelle Lynn died in a drive-by shooting on April 13, 2013 at 10:57 p.m. She was exactly three weeks shy of her 23rd birthday.

Her murder was just one of 39 homicides that occurred in 2013 in what Miami-Dade Police call the Northside District.

We don't know much more about Janelle's short life because the Miami Herald ignored her murder...the same way the paper ignored the other 38 homicides that took place in the Northside District in 2013.

But Janelle's death didn't go completely unnoticed.

Three days after she was gunned down, rapper Flo Rida tweeted this to his followers.

It's not much...but it's a whole lot more recognition than she received from the Miami Herald.

It appears that Chuck D was right when he famously remarked, “Rap is CNN for black people.”

  1. What else is new. The Miami Herald is on the way out. After 40 years I am cancelling my subscription. If only everyone who has a computer would cancel their subscription we could make it easier for them to close shop.

  2. Most if not all of these victims are black and the Herald doesn't cover the black community.

    It survives as the time warped tail tip of the dumbest racist region of the country.
