Janelle Monae Mourns Cousin Murdered in Kansas City

Our thoughts are with Janelle Monae, whose cousin Natasha Hays, 37, was killed in a shooting on Tuesday (August 30) in Kansas City, Kansas.

An unidentified person opened fire on her home while her three kids – ages 18, 16, and 14 – were also in the home. Her children were unharmed, a Fox affiliate reports.

“Gun violence has struck home. My beautiful 1st cousin was murdered. She was a mother of 3. Loved by her community. #NatashaHays #sayhername,” Janelle tweeted. “#KansasCity #Gunviolence is still keeping our city in a dark place. The fear of “who is next?” never leaves. Praying4more light. Help us.”

“Nobody deserves to lose their mother, sister, cousin, friend, etc to the hands of evil. Evil has no race. #Gunviolence #NatashaHays,” Janelle continued. “Hearing your uncle on the phone while he tries to make sense of his daughter being murdered is the most helpless feeling in the entire world.”
