Family and friends of the victim’s waited outside 36th District Court Monday morning for Cain’s hearing from a prior shooting incident before it was postponed.
Conaway’s sister, Latrina Conaway, was very distraught, just hours after learning of the news.
“We should not lose our children to such evil and rotten men,” she said.
Conaway’s mother, Lois Brown, was in disbelief when she learned what happened to her daughter. “I didn’t even have a chance to bury my own child and they took it upon themselves to bury my own daughter,” Brown said.
Cain and another man were charged earlier this month in a Feb. 8 shooting involving the missing women. Cain and Lee are in custody and have not been charged in the women’s disappearance.MORE NEWS: Local Communities Organize Student Walkouts To Rally Against Gun Violence
