On Wednesday, May 27, 2015, at approximately 9:40 pm, Ms. Charnice Milton was shot and killed in the 2700 block of Good Hope Road, SE. The 27-year-old Washington, DC journalist was murdered after she was used as a “human shield” while attempting to catch her final bus home after covering an event on Capitol Hill. A man or older teen on a dirt bike with a group of riders fired at another group of bike riders. Sixteen (16) persons were involved in the murder. As reported by DailyMail.com, Mayor Bowser said, “We want to know. We know that people were in and around the area. We have gotten very little information, and we need the public to provide that information so Charnice’s killer can be captured.” No arrests have been made.

Charnice Milton is the Daughter of Kenneth McClenton and Francine Milton.  Many of you know my friend, Ken McClenton, AKA the Exceptional Conservative, from his appearances on the Lid Radio Show. Ken and his wife lost their beloved daughter three years ago. Rather than wallow in the bitterness of losing a child, they decided to take action and practice what Jews call ‘Tikun Olam” repairing the world.  In the name of their daughter Charnice Milton, they created an organization called Open Heart Close Case (OHCC). OHCC is a not-for-profit group dedicated to Opening Hearts & Closing Unresolved Homicides, Missing Persons and Exploited Child Cases.

Today Ken sent me information about the latest OHCC project

Individuals do not need a GED or college degree to be eligible for commercial driving and non-driving posts that will pay from $35,000 to $200,000 annually. In addition, NFTWP will assist in building a “brick and mortar” freight brokerage that will allow Ward 7 and 8 citizens to directly participate in the multi-billion dollar national and international trade industry.
