Barahona Case

Message from Secretary Wilkins

Thank you all for being here today. So much has been said – and will be said - since the horrific discovery of Nubia’s body on Valentine's Day and the terrible revelations of what she, her brother Victor and others suffered at the hands of people she loved and trusted. It truly defies words and tries the limits of our shared humanity to comprehend how a precious life could end in such a way.

Nubia's tragic life will not be a hidden sadness. We all owe a debt to her memory and all children, to learn and do the best we can to protect what God has given us. Judges and higher powers will hold the fate of those responsible. It is our responsibility now to work together for those who have put their trust in us. More. . .
