The Phylicia Barnes Story: The Late Teen’s Dad Request The Nation’s Prayers For His Family As 1 Year Mark Approaches

Sometimes as a writer in a quest to bring News and Attention to tragic stories that impact society, we can be insensitive to those who have suffered the most when tragedy has come. In the Phylicia Barnes murder case no one has suffered and endured more pain than Janice Sallis-Mustafa, her husband, and their remaining kids. My beloved Muslim brother R. Mustafa, Phylicia Barnes’ real Dad returned a call that I put out to him. I wanted to have a National Town Meeting on a Nationally Broadcast Blogtalk Radio Show to acknowledge the 1 year mark of the disappearance of their studious child. Brother Mustafa explained to me that his wife and kids have been grieving intently as December 28 draws near. I personally apologize to the Mustafa Family for my selfishness and not considering their privacy at such an extremely challenging time. Mustafa said it seems unlikely that Janice would be emotionally willing to do another National Broadcast, but he did not rule out that possibility. I had not heard anything in National media regarding the pretty little girl’s story and I wanted to keep the case in the spotlight. Mustafa advised me that other News Media has attempted to contact his family on an ongoing basis, but he had to turn off his wife’s cell phone because it was too overwhelming doing this time in which his family is continuing to grieve the lost of their promising child. So, I did provide the necessary information in the event that the Mustafa family decides to speak publicly, but I will not pursue National Publicity about Phylicia’s case at this time. However, Mustafa went on to say that “everything that Janice said is true”, refering to her TPC Blog Inerview and other public statements in the Media. He spoke briefly about the Barnes Family and their dishonesty pertaining to the case. Mustafa said “all of these people who say they loved Phylicia have never been around”. “They have never been at any of her Birthday Parties that I have paid for”. Mustafa seemed agitated by comments that Deena and Kelly Barnes made regarding their relationship with Phylicia. “they say they met her when she was 6 years old and fell in love with her, but where were they up until she was 15”? Mustafa commented on Sandra Barnes recent comments on the TPC Blog about her being the niece of Russell Barnes’ adoptive father. Mustafa said though her comments were factual, “I nor Phylicia ever met that side of the Barnes Family”. He also pointed out that Sandra’s comments depicted how vicious those Barnes family members were that, “She didn’t want to associate with them herself”. Mustafa says that the truth is coming out now. “God is going to bring everything out now”.  Brother Mustafa also talked about today’s youth, and the problems that society faces if adults do not get involved in their kids lives. “Be a good Uncle, Aunt, Brother, or Father, and do something”. Mustafa briefly talked about his life growing up in the west side of Chicago. He said he never thought that he would see places worst then Chicago, but he was shocked when he saw the volume of young women being pimped out and prostituted along North Avenue in Baltimore the night he searched for his daughter. ” When I got to Baltimore and heard Phylicia might be pimped out by some pimp, I drove all up and down North Avenue looking for her”. Mustafa was extremely vocal about the duty of a man. “A man is supposed to protect women not exploit them”. I didn’t want to take much of his time, but as our conversation ended Mustafa said the family’s focus is staying strong, together, and protecting their remaining kids. “That’s my job to protect this family”. Brother Mustafa asked that I convey to my Blog Followers and the nation, to continue to pray for the Mustafa Family as they continue to grieve.

A National Prayer for the Family of Phylica Barnes

Father God come into this place right now. Touch every heart, every soul and all who  loved, knew, and became acquainted with your beautiful daughter whom you’ve called home. We ask that you might bless us all, especially Phylicia’s family members who continue to morn her passing. Give them the strength to continue on knowing that Phylicia Simone Barnes is now in your loving care. Father we ask that you put your arms around the Mustafas and their little babies and guide them to your throne. your throne of righteousness, peace, and comforting. Father we know it’s been a year since this tragedy occurred, but let our hearts not wonder, our emotions spur bitterness, anger, and revenge. For we know that your word teaches us that vengeance is yours. We have not forgotten your promise that you will be with us until the end of our days upon this earth. We know that you are working this murder case and will bring atonement upon those who are responsible. Father we are a sinful people and only against you have we gone astray. Father we have faith and will continue to pray, and worship your name that justice and righteousness will prevail in this senseless tragedy. Father have mercy on the Mustafas. Have mercy on the Barnes family, and father have mercy on Phylicia’s killers. For you have taught us that we must bare forgiveness even for those whom have harmed us. Father embrace us all as we await your judgment on the day that we shall all come to know. We thank you for your blessings, your mercy, and your grace. In your name we pray!

Amen, Amen, and Amen.

    THANK YOU ALL FOR YOU ALLS SUPPORT, SINCERITY, LOVE AND CONCERNS. EVEN MORE THANKS TO OUR/MY HEAVENLY FATHER CREATOR, AND MOTHER EARTH. PEACE TO ALL.

    • Nicole says:

      You are so welcome! You are truly in my prayers EVERYDAY! I pray for you and your family and for justice to be served and EVERYTHING & EVERYBODY brought to the light. I can not imagine your pain, but God is behind you. And you and Phylicia have touched so many people it’s just unreal. Continue to be strong. Love you with the love of God!!!!

    • Just Curious says:

      You’re welcome Mrs. Mustafa. They are all going down!!

  2. Nicole says:

    Thank you Mr. Adams! That was an excellent blog and it brought tears to my eyes. At least Phylicia had a good mother & father/daddy to raise her and teach her and they did a GREAT job with her. Mr. Mustafa, is more of a man that russel will ever dream to be. They rode around looking for Phylicia at any cost, with the only concern of finding Phylicia while russell hollering about waiting on his blood connect. russell is a dispictable sorry excuse for a piece of human walking on this earth, he is just like dead soil . . . NO PURPOSE! Especially to just go on with life like nothing has happened. Justice is coming and I hope it land russell, deena, kelly, and the johnson clans under the jail. Put them all in 1 cell and throw away the key.

  3. barnettebey says:

    Thank Mr. Adams for keeping this case in the spotlight!! I am a from North Carolina and have keep up this case from the time Phylicia went missing. Mrs. Janice caught my attention on television one day when she said “if you took my daughter, God is going to get you!” My thoughts were, “Get em GOD”!

  4. FANCY says:

    Your Welcome Mrs. Mustafa, you and your family will remain in my prayers..

  5. JFPB says:

    Mr. Mustafa, like you (Chicago, IL) I’m a St. Louis, MO/E.St.Louis, IL girl and I thought I couldn’t see any worse as well when I moved to B more (military sent me to MD). I think this is why I HATED The Wire. This show (and SOME of its actors/actresses) glorifed what us parents tried to distance ourselves from in this city. You have no idea how many conversations I have had with fellow mothers of daughters in B more about this case. We send our children to the best high schools (all girls Western and School for the Arts), college, parties, visiting family etc. hoping they remember how they were raised and in the event of a problem our number is on speed dial. I can’t tell you how many times strangers have found my daughters cell phones and called the speed dial that said “Mommy.” Yes this case has had me on my knees saying THANK YOU GOD!!! I don’t know if you could have done anything differently Mr. Mustafa. Phylicia could have been one of my daughters.

    Believe me I have had some conversations in which my girls admitted they were in situations that made them uncomfortable and left (house parties, clubs etc.) or called me asking for plane fare to come HOME feelign uncomfortable! It hurts my heart wishing and praying Phylicia had done the same. Like you so eloquently stated Its our job as adults to teach these kids sometimes “fun” isn’t always “healthy!” I want justice for selfish reasons. MY city has raised too many young black intelligent young ladies who didn’t end up nude in a river!!! That apt and its occupants CHOSE the corrupt ignorant seedy side of B more and FORCED that lifestyle onto UNDERAGEDPhylicia.Sadly she wasn’t surrounded by ADULTS!!!

    My DEEP prayers to the Mustafa Family! JFPB!
