Migdalia Daughtry used to live across the street from Burton-Green on Halifax Street. Daughtry never thought her former neighbor would be caught up in something like this.
“It’s shocking to me,” she says. “Like I’m very surprised. It’s unbelievable. I mean I’m
really speechless. I don’t believe that. I don’t believe she has anything to do
with that. She’s not a bad person at all. She’s a mother. She’s always watching
out for everybody’s kids.”
Both are considered armed and dangerous.
