Report: Body Of 16-Year-Old Girl From Virgina Found 2 Weeks After Her Parents Say Police Treated Her Like a ‘Runaway’

Get ready to be filled with a fit of rage. It’s coming.

On Friday, the body of a 16-year-old girl from Virginia was found, less than a mile from where she was last seen. 

Fairfax police have confirmed that it was Jholie Moussa, who had been missing for about two weeks, when police found her body covered in leaves in Woodlawn Park. 

Officers say that this discovery was made the second time that they allegedly searched the park.

NBC 4 Washington reports that her parents claim that when they first reported their daughter missing, the authorities shrugged it off. 

They told them Jholie probably ran away and registered her into the National Crime Information Center database as a runaway juvenile. Really?

How bizarre. And unacceptable.

“Based on the facts of the case, there is nothing that indicates that Moussa is in any danger,” county police previously stated in a previous statement.


Wrong. Clearly.

The day Jholie disappeared, she seemed distracted after school, her twin, Zhane Moussa, shared with NBC 4 Washington.

“She was doing my hair and then she stopped, for a good minute, to text some more. Then, out of nowhere, she was like, ‘I gotta go, I gotta go!'” Zhane noted.

After she left, Zhane said sent her a text message and later received an odd response.

“She texted me that she was going to Norfolk,” Zhane said. “And I’m, like, isn’t that more than 3 hours away?”

Her mother, Syreeta Steward, stated that she had missed a phone call from what appeared to be Jholie, but never heard from her again.

“Normally, she would have responded back to me. If she calls me and I don’t answer, she always follows it up with a text,” Steward explained.

Although the Fairfax police may have believed that Jholie had ran away, the FBI lent a hand in the investigation one day after Jholie’s family posted a plea on Facebook for her to come home.

A spokeswoman for the Fairfax County Police, Julie Parker, claims that the parents are wrong about the police not taking this case seriously from the beginning.

“Our understanding was that she had voluntarily left home and there were no signs of foul play,” she said.


How horrible! That poor girl. 

Sending our prayers to her friends and family. So heartbreaking. We can’t even imagine what they are feeling right now.
