Memorial Set Up for Woman Killed Over Weekend


A memorial now sits outside the home of a woman who was killed over the weekend.

Police found the body of 26-year-old Lavoris Watkins in her home on the 1000 block of Kelsey Avenue, just off MLK on Saturday afternoon.

"Who would do something like this is shocking, take a young mother from her two kids. She had two boys and now my grandkids gotta grow up without a mother," said father William Wilford.

Patrice Wolford, Watkins sister, remembers "Nea" as she was known by family and friends, as a loving, selfless person.

"She would give to anybody and do anything for anyone and just for someone to do this is... its tragic," said Patrice.

Lansing Police say they are looking into all leads and are asking for help.

"We've deployed a considerable amount of resources. Our hearts go out to the family. We'll certainly do everything we can do to assist them," said Lansing Police Captain Daryl Green.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Sgt. Christopher Baldwin at (517) 483-6846 or Crime Stoppers at (517) 483-STOP.
