Based on this "killing" we now know that Nashboro Village is part of Antioch.

First and for most my prayers and my familys prayers go out to Dontrell's family. I know that the world that we live in is not all peaches and cream but it is a damn shame when a young black males life expectancy ranges anywhere between 16-21. I have heard young black men say that they thought they would see the age of 18 or 21, now you want to talk about sad. This is sad. Mother's and Father's love, respect, nurture and thank God for your kids because just like this family and million just like it tomorrow is not promised. Open your eyes people our kids are killing each other..
