Where Is Keoisha Felix?: Louisiana Teen Mom Still Missing Over A Year Later

A 15 year old girl in the care of the state of Louisiana, while living with her Aunt consistently expressed her complete discontent for the living conditions she was exposed to. The teen mom had sounded the alarm that she was in trouble, chiefly because she made complaints of having been sexually assaulted (raped) by her Aunt’s live in boyfriend. Patricia Andrus told Duson, Louisiana police investigating the Keiosha Felix’ missing persons complaint that she “was unaware of any rape but her boyfriend may have played with her privates.” That revelation was revealed to police by witnesses who had contact with the girl prior to her disappearance and has infuriated followers of the little girl’s case, and at the time Keiosha was reported missing her aunt had not reported the child’s complaint of allegedly having been raped to state childcare officials nor local police.

Despite police responding to a missing child complaint that indicated possible sexual assault and abuse, the girl’s relatives were successful in selling police a story the child had been communicating with the family. One report indicated that a cousin had overheard the child’s voice over the phone. The family’s initial statements to police caused Keiosha’s case to be classified as a runaway case. Other relatives more knowledgeable of the child’s situation demonstrated sufficient and compelling information that completely dispelled any theory which would suggest that the teen had run away. Chiefly, the police were told that Keiosha would never under any circumstance simply abandon her one year old daughter.

By the time cops began to reevaluate information they had received in the case, it may have already been too late. Some believe that the inconsistent stories relatives initially told police may have been purposefully orchestrated to cover up what actually happened to the child. Investigators also expressed concern that the child may have been a victim of human trafficking, although no details were provided explaining why trafficking may be an element of this case, officials noted that child prostitution and human trafficking was not only a possibility but a prevalent industry in the region.

Upon Duson Police investigating claims that Keiosha had been in contact with the family, police discovered that the cousin who made the allegations had in fact lied. Cops eventually arrested the child’s Aunt boyfriend Leon Wilkerson on second-degree kidnapping and simple rape charges, which were eventually dropped because the state couldn’t produce the child to testify as a witness in the case. However, the aunt Patricia Andrus was charged with being an accessory to rape and improper supervision of a minor, while Cousin Portia Felix was charged with obstruction of justice for lying to police about having been in contact with the teen.

The unfortunate circumstance that caused the girl’s case to start off slow with police treating her as a runaway case hindered the investigation initially, but the child’s aunt dropped the ball, and failed the youth from the very start. After Keiosha made complaints regarding having been raped, the aunt never took the appropriate course of actions to  verify the child’s personal safety. It’s even more disturbing considering that when cops asked the aunt why she hadn’t notified the authorities regarding the rape allegations, that she said “I asked Leon about it and he said it was not true so she left it alone.” That’s an extremely tragic aspect of the child’s disappearance, and primarily why suspicion lingers indicating that foul play may have occurred in the case. Duson police says despite these factors, sufficient evidence doesn’t exist indicating that the child may have been harmed in any way.

Keiosha’s case also had a disturbing element which spark controversy within the town’s police department, when it was discovered that a high ranking police official was in fact related to some of the child’s relatives who had been arrested and charged surrounding the teen’s disappearance and rape allegations. The incident sparked community outrage which led to the termination of a police administrator. Baring that strange sidebar related to this story, the only other significant piece of information which has surfaced is the discovery of an adult male who police say was captured in a cell phone retailer security video surveillance, and who was only believed to have purchased a cell phone which was used to contact the youth. Police say he was never a suspect in the case but believed he could provide crucial details which could lead to what happened to Keiosha.

Police were successful identifying the man, but no new leads have developed regarding where Keiosha’s whereabouts are. The girl’s family say they believe she is still alive and haven’t given up hope that she will eventually be brought home to her precious daughter and their family. Sadly, cases related to missing black girls start off slow due to various dynamics which establish crucial information often fail to impact the direction police take surrounding the investigation of children of color. Man people are convinced that somebody knows something regarding what happened to young Keiosha Felix, and The People’s Champion Blog implores everyone of the thousands within our readership base to be vigilante regarding any information they may have regarding the whereabouts, or any knowledge they may possess related to the Keiosha Felix case to notify authorities investigating her case.

Let’s pray for this child that she may be brought home safely to her young daughter and family. It’s been over a year since the child’s disappearance, but The People’s Champion hasn’t forgotten her painful story. May God move on behalf of this child and others who have simply vanished without a clue.
