Annshalike Hamilton's Baby Was A Girl Plus Some EXCLUSIVE JOHNNY NORTHSIDE INFO ABOUT HER LIFE AND DEATH

So now all the media have the story of the murder victim at 2222 4th St. N., and they are all over it, but for several days the comments on this blog were the only information available which provided victim information and a motive...indeed, this blog is STILL ahead of the story because...
...the media are not yet reporting the likely identity of the murderer, as offered up by posters to this blog: a guy known as "Snoop" or "Freaky" who was in his 20s, who was apparently the father of Annshalike's baby.
According to info released by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner, Annshalike Shanta Hamilton died of multiple blunt force injuries. In addition, her baby, Annshalike NMN Hamilton was stillborn and cause of death is "fetal demise secondary to maternal death due to multiple blunt force injuries." (The name of the baby was apparently designated by the HCME, per whatever policies decide such things. In my opinion...and it's just my opinion...the ultimate decision about the baby's name rests with the family)
Police went out of their way to say the victim died of blunt force injuries, not gunshot wounds. And, yes, a commenter on this blog did say a "friend" of Annshalike witnessed her being shot. That is apparently false information which for one reason or another, the poster may have sincerely believed to be true. Even the poster was reporting is as secondhand info, however.
I was at the 4 PM press conference today, held at the garage at 2222 4th St. N., but I arrived a bit late due to my van being stolen by a thug. More on that later. But it was cool, because an officer from the 4th Precinct actually gave me a ride, and he'd heard about my blog.
"You're Johnny Northside?" he said. (How cool was THAT?! Well, not cool enough to get my van stolen.)
Now that the victim's identity has been released officially, I am going to go ahead and publish, exclusively to Johnny Northside blog readers, some information I have been sitting upon.
Annshalike's Life And Death
This info came to me over the comments function, with a request not to post, but it also said the poster would have "no qualms" about this information being posted in "somewhat edited form" once the identity of the victim was made official.
So here it is in "somewhat edited form," which I take to mean using English major magic on grammar, spelling, etc. However, not much of proofreading was necessary. This poster is actually pretty skilled as a writer.
The poster calls himself "Mark" and says, "I'm a close friend of the family" and that "Anshalike's mother is like my adopted mom." (Mark consistently spells "Annshalike" with one "n," when the official information uses two. Mark notes, also, that he is aware of the identities of the other anonymous posters. Because the story told by the other two posters is "confusing," Mark states he would like to "shed some light as to the goings-on."
He says Annshalike's nickname was "Lili" and she was a bright, straight-A student (apparently at Patrick Henry High School) "from a white mother and black father." He continues, "Last school year her grades started slipping, then over summer vacation she lived with her dad, a dad that never kept tabs on her or cared what she did...it seems over the summer she met this man who, according to Lili's own words, goes by "Freaky" and "Snoop" and is in his mid-20s.
"When school rolled around she came home to her mom's pregnant. Her mom (and all of us!) were upset. The decision was made by both Anshalike and mom they would keep the child, both believing abortions wrong in a world where (...) young people are already being killed.
"The other problem was she wouldn't tell anyone the father's real name. Then Annshalike started disappearing from the house, sometimes for days. She was truant from school enough where her mom contacted MPD and asked for help finding the father and trying to arrest him on statutory rape and get him off the streets. Rumor claims he is a crack dealer as well."
(Johnny Northside notes: Yeah, rumor posted in the comment threads of this blog is that he used to deal right out of that garage at 2222 4th St. N., but that's the same commentor who said Annshalike was "shot," so...well, who knows? There are consistent reports of drug dealing in that alley)
The Dreaded Knock At The Door
Mark notes the family hoped trying to get Snoop arrested would prevent Anshalike's "sporadic runaways to him." Mark says, "I just want to note...she never had substance abuse problems and I am fairly sure she was not on crack. In the beginning of November she disappeared again, this time longer than normal. Her mom contacted national and local missing child programs. When Thanksgiving came and went without even a phone call, we all thougth the worse, but nobody wanted to voice concerns out loud.
"On Wednesday, the 17th of December the police came to her mom's to get info regarding the frozen body. The family was not allowed to identify the body, a vague reason given that the body would be definitely unidentifiable, so DNA was taken from the mother and father."
Mark says more at this point. I will not disclose it at this time. The reason for non-disclosure is so the information will not make its way to the suspect, Snoop or Freaky.
Mark does add the family needs to "properly mourn" and the family needs "justice." Some degree of speculation is added by Mark about the awful things that happen in prison to child killers.
Best to not include those graphic thoughts.
If anybody knows the real name of Freaky/Snoop, his rap sheet, address, where he took my stolen van...OK, that speculation was way off, I'll admit...but, in any case, if anybody has info please publish it in the comment threads.
In regard to the photos: these are from the online Photobucket account of "Annshalike," which appears to be the same person as the victim. Indeed, the name "Annshalike" is unique in the world. There was only one person with this name, until the Hennepin County Medical examiner designated "Annshalike" as the name for the baby. And then there were two people with that name, but neither one, you might say, "in this world."
In any case...I am using the photos because these are complimentary likinesses which will make people care about the victim, and because the point of "Photobucket" is to simply dump photos on the world to share the photos. This is a reasonable use of the photos, sympathic and helpful to the victim, who remains the (apparent) owner of the photos.
