October is Domestic Abuse Awareness Month and Alpha Media News will be spending this week focusing on those lost or missing due to the actions of a violent ex.
How long could you go without answers if a loved one was missing?
A month, a year? For the family of former Eagle Grove resident Typhenie Johnson Monday marks 6 years since she was last heard from.
According to her sister, Keshia Johnson, the story of Typhenie Johnson’s disappearance is one that began as a heated encounter with an ex-boyfriend outside the Fort Worth, Texas apartment she shared with her brother.
“She told her friend to go upstairs and she’d be there in a minute and she was going to take care of her ex,” Keshia Johnson said. “They were talking and she wanted to tell him they were done and she wanted to move on.”
Keshia says after the argument, that ex boyfriend Christopher Revell drove off and he was not seen for over an hour and that was the last time anyone saw or heard from Typhenie.
After police were called and an interview was conducted, Revell was arrested that day and has been behind bars ever since.
Even without finding Typhenie’s whereabouts, Revill was convicted of her kidnapping, but for Typhenie’s family that is not enough.
“First off we want her found, but we want to make sure he never does this again,” Keshia said. “He’s eligible for parole when he’s 62. The only way we can stop this is to find her.”
Through the course of this family’s nightmare it was discovered that Revill was the prime suspect in the 2006 disappearance of another woman, 20 year old Talibaah Islam. Her whereabouts remain unknown to this day.
Now, the families of both these women continue to search the Fort Worth area and are hoping for closure of some kind soon.
The family of Typhenie Johnson remembers her everyday and is asking you to think about her Monday.
“Share a prayer, share her face, join ‘Bring Typhenie Johnson Home’ on Facebook,” Keshia Johnson said
A search is scheduled for this Friday in the Fort Worth area in hopes of finding new information that could lead to the discovery of Typhenie Johnson who is now 31 years old.
Keshia Johnson said the family will be releasing balloons at an Eagle Grove Park on Monday for the young woman lovingly known as Pippy or Kit Kat.
