Natina Reed parents express frustration

R&B singer Natina Reed's parents voiced their frustration with the Gwinnett police investigation into Reed's death during a midday press conference in downtown Atlanta on Thursday.

“We are hurt and distraught about the untimely death of our daughter Natina,” said Reed's mother, Tamara Goodridge, during a 1 p.m. press conference. “We have been asking for the preliminary report from police. Why did it take so long for them to give it to us?," she asked.

Shamari Fears DeVoe and Tren Brown

According to The Atlanta Journal Constitution, the police report was made public on Wednesday -- 3 days after Reed was struck and killed on a dark stretch of highway late Friday.

Gwinnett Police spokesman Cpl. Edwin Ritter told the AJC his office had no record of anyone requesting the police report -- other than the media.

But Mrs. Goodrich denies the cop's version of events. She also disputed the police report's address for Reed -- a motel where police say Reed was living.

"It's not true," Goodridge said. "She was in transition, about to move to a new home."

The driver of the red Honda that hit Reed stopped and called 911 to report the accident. No charges are pending against the driver.

There are unconfirmed rumors that Reed was kicked out of a car following a drunken argument with the driver. She was 12 miles from her last known address when she was killed.

Police are awaiting toxicology reports to determine if Reed was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Reed's parents and police want to speak with anyone who knows Reed's whereabouts in the hours before she was killed.

Reed, a member of the popular 1990s R&B group Blaque, planned a reunion with group members Brandi Williams and Shamari Fears-DeVoe, pictured above with Reed's 10-year-old son Tren Brown on Oct. 29. Fears-DeVoe says there was also a reality TV show in the works.

      Lack of communication??? hmph it seems the lack came from the parents. Transition (from an extended stay to a new home). That's a hell of a transition but ok.
      The problem is that the parents are not telling the truth about their daughter and her issues.

      AJ I understand where you're coming from and I too feel the same way. But after watching Intervention & saw how parents go all out trying to "save" their kids and love on them, cry tears for them. From the news conference you can tell her parents love her very much so am sure they tried to help. BUT..If there is ANY truth to the stories about her substance abuse etc. she may have declined and wanted to live life her own way bc am sure they would not have allowed her to misbehave in their house. #IMO

      @AJ/Keesh

      I think folks are confused about what an "Extended Stay" is. It's nothing more than a hotel where the rooms are set up more like small apts rather than just little boxy hotel rooms. And I think people are very narrow minded to assume she couldn't have been in transition.

      One of my coworkers, his wife and his 3 kids were living in an extended stay for 3 weeks in September when the settlement on the house they bought took a bit longer and they had already done the settlement on the house they sold.

      I stayed in a hotel like that with my mother for 8 months about a decade ago when our house caught on fire and was deemed unsafe to return to and she had to work out the insurance payoff before being able to buy a new house.

      My coworker's parents are alive and near, and my grandmother was alive and near and invited us to move in. Some people simply dont want to impose on other people like that, especially if they are grown and have children of their own.

      Furthermore, don't say NEVER, because you NEVER know what you may be forced to do. And it's also entirely possible that she was moving into a new home but was staying at the ES for a few weeks until the new home was ready. You have no idea just how long that exact scenario occurs.

    • lovezoe

      You can't hold someone hostage. IF she was on drugs, I'm sure her parents did everything. Also, they may not have known the severity. Parents can sometimes blind themselves to the truth. We don't know. As for why her band mate didn't let her stay with her, how many would let a woman sober or not stay with her and her husband?

    • Donna del Gatto

      perhaps she didn't want to stay with her parents because of her lifestyle choice??? :shrugs: #foodforthought

      But for real who was she talking to, now I want to know. Maybe the parents upset because the police aren't requesting cell phone records. I'm thinking the cops thought she was a street walking prostitute, and didn't gather evidence, what happened to the cell phone? Was the driver given a sobriety test...

    • PiscesRising

      People seem so anxious to just assume she was on drugs and she was staying at a hotel where they rent by the hour or something.

      Maybe it's just in my area, but ES hotels are not cheap. And nothing has been said of this woman seeking drugs or performing escort-type services so I don't see why her living in an ES hotel for a while automatically denotes some other vice of hers that must have been controlling her life.

      Whitney Houston died at the Beverly Hilton. But I guess she could not have been staying there in "transition" becuase it's the Beverly Hilton and not an extended stay, right?

      That's just ludicrous.

      Another example.. years ago while I watching that reality show Kimora Lee Simmons had, she was doing the exact same thing.

      She was selling her house in NJ and looking for a house in LA. In the meantime, she and her two daughters were staying at the Ritz Carlton in Beveraly Hills for close to a month. They were there so long, Kimora bought her OWN sheets to put on all of the beds in the suite.

      Was Kimora NOT in transition as well? The only difference that may exist is that Kimora could afford to stay at the Ritz while "transitioning" and Natina couldn't afford that.

      But people seem so determined to make this lady's life out to be some pinnacle of tragedy. I just don't understand. It's rather sad, I must add.

      Thank you! You seem to be one of few people informed about what an ES is.

      I think many folks just heard she was living in a hotel and automatically ran with the assumption that she was living in a place similar to a Motel 6 or something.

      ASSumptions are hell! Just let the story unfold before anyone passes judgement because there are a number of reasons one needs to be in an extended stay. You never know what a person has gone thru and drugs and alcohol doesn't always play a role. Some people fall on hard times.

      The woman who filed a police report accusing Cee Lo of sexual battery secretly recorded a conversation with the singer, and sources involved in the case tell TMZ ... Cee Lo admitted slipping her a drug and then having sex with her -- something the singer denies.The woman has told cops ... Cee Lo took her to a downtown L.A. restaurant in July. They had a drink and she says she remembers nothing after that. The woman claims the next thing she knew she was lying naked in a bed and Cee Lo was in the room.We're told the woman, who does not live in California, almost immediately went to her local law enforcement agency and reported the incident. The matter was eventually referred to the LAPD.Sources tell us ... LAPD detectives had the woman make a "pretext call" -- a call in which someone baits the other party into acknowledging a crime or other misdeed -- and it was recorded.Sources involved in the case represent to TMZ ... Cee Lo is on tape, repeatedly apologizing and referencing MDMA (Ecstasy) -- though he does not specifically say he put it in her drink. Sources say Cee Lo told her he thought the drug would help them have an exciting time together. For the record, MDMA generally does not render people unconscious.Sources connected with Cee Lo scoff at the claim, saying if the tape contained such admissions Cee Lo would already be under arrest.As we first reported ... detectives went to the restaurant last week to determine if employees saw anything unusual between Cee Lo and the woman.And we're told ... LAPD detectives will refer the matter to the L.A. County District Attorney's Office when the investigation is completed.Sources connected to Cee Lo tell us ... the accuser went to a civil lawyer BEFORE going to police and demanded money from the singer to make the whole thing go away. Other sources tell us a different story -- that her lawyer called Cee Lo's manager to find out if the singer had any communicable diseases and never made any money demands.Our Cee Lo sources say the manager shut the lawyer down and that's when she went to cops. Other sources say she called the cops BEFORE her lawyer called Cee Lo's manager.

      In my city those extended stay hotels are in nice areas. I had a friend who was staying at one for about 2-3 months, it had a kitchen and everything...lol....Natina probably WANTED to stay there, she could have her own privacy and move about how she pleased...either way her parents are trying to find answers when the simple answer is that she was walking by herself and someone did not see her and hit her...whatever was going on before hand is truly irrelevant... :shrugs:

      Not sure about folks but I reside in Gwinnett County and pass where Natina was struck to go to work and the extended stays on that stretch are not the place anyone wants to be at any given time transition or not.
      I have not assumed anything about Natina as I do not know her habits, why she was walking at that time of night, etc...
      My concern really is with her parents. Gwinnett County nor any police dept does not deliver reports, you have to go to them for the reports.

      Just because a certain place may seem "crackish" or undesirable, that should not lead one to deduce that all residents of that place must subscribe to that same vice.

      From reading, I've noticed that there are quite a bit of Chicago residents on this blog. From mainstream media portrayals of Chicago as of late, that place looks like the jungles of Vietnam with all of the violence and happenstance.

      Should I assume that all residents of Chicago must be murderous, heartless thugs that will even kill their own siblings should they stare at them the wrong way?

      No! That'd be an overtly close-minded thing to assume.

      My point is just that I people may need to broaden their thinking a bit more as it relates to ES hotels, this young woman's death and other things.

      The outer appearance of an area should not preclude an automatic blanket assumption about all of that area's occupants.

      But I do respect your opinion and the manner in which you offered it.

      @xamayca no KKK. School system is great - they do not recognize no child left behind, DFCS is barely reported to unlike some of the other metro area, teachers are hands on and provide tutoring all the time and they place your child based on your property tax. Like Jenie said backroads are the key to avoid traffic but if you work downtown or midtown you can take the xpress bus like many do

      @xamayca. Conyers is far from everything and there is only one way to get there and that's I-20 unless you go the street way. The traffic is always a mess on I-20 east. The area is mixed. If u are looking for a good school system, then u need to check out gwinnett county

    • PiscesRising

      Maybe I am mistaken, but I thought that's how it worked in all public school systems. The property taxes determines how much money goes to the schools, right? Schools with less funding and such tend to be in poorer neighborhoods and vice versa.

      Unless they are saying that they look at the individual amount of property taxes paid by the parents of each student and place the child accordingly. Now, THAT would be utterly ridiculous and quite classist.

      That picture really does her justice. Very beautiful.

      I think her parents are in some stage of grief where they are looking everywhere and anywhere for answers. Three days after death is not a long time to get a finalized initial police report. It seems like they are barking up all the wrong trees. The police didn't murder their child and they don't have a reason to hide a police report from them.

      I pray they find peace at some point even if some of the fingers point back to their loved one.

      @Boot exactly what you are assuming. When we moved from NY we thought that my sister and nephew would go to one of the two schools that we were told they send the "northerners" to which according to the ratings was not one of the better schools. However when we went to register them the lady asked for our property tax and in her words that trumps everything because they like to keep their money together.

      Should I assume that all residents of Chicago must be murderous, heartless thugs that will even kill their own siblings should they stare at them the wrong way?

      No! That’d be an overtly close-minded thing to assume.

      My point is just that I people may need to broaden their thinking a bit more as it relates to ES hotels, this young woman’s death and other things.

      The outer appearance of an area should not preclude an automatic blanket assumption about all of that area’s occupants.

      But I do respect your opinion and the manner in which you offered it.

      Thanks, anytime...I only speak based on my life experiences and the things Ive seen without making anyone feel uncomfortable. Unfortunately Extended Stays are not and never have been a big part of my life so I cant really go into details about them. Also, thanks for your outlook on this situation.

      A.J. says: Not sure about folks but I reside in Gwinnett County and pass where Natina was struck to go to work and the extended stays on that stretch are not the place anyone wants to be at any given time transition or not.

      i don't know what to say about her parents but, i guess as a parent, you want someone to be held accountable. she got hit, that's what killed her, and everybody in atlanta knows people get struck on these highways ALL THE TIME. i done barely missed quite a few julios and kneegroes running across the highway or pushing strollers down the side of the highway in all black in the early morning hours or late at night.

      That movie and The Lottery. I think if they do away with standardized tests, more parental involvement, and dedicated teachers. As of right now, my kids have not had a teachers they will remember like I did. My first and second grade teacher still remember me. I still remember the song my third grade teacher taught us.

      Providence Christian Academy is a school in Lilburn, GA that reminds me of "Waiting for Superman." They want donations from the jump! Account numbers posted!

      :waves: hi luvn. What I can say is that the school my nephew and sister went to were heaven sent cause those are two troubled kids, the teachers email my mom about homework assignments and projects, they call to let us know what issue they had to address with them, they havr a mentoring program, counseling groups and testing process to make sure kids pass the crct.

    • sassyshe

      @jenine all i can say is that in the 5 years being in.conyers havr not witnessed anything. The one trip i made to monroe a guy had a confederate flag with a noose on proud displsy. I jetted out of there quickly

      what do they want answers to? the only person you can continue to probe the hell out of is the driver of the honda. Did they really know her or was this random? did they put her out the car and then ran her over? outside of that, I'm not sure what answers they're searching for. she wasn't reportedly killed in cold blood or murdered, so what do they need answers to? hell now I'm confused.

      "she was in transition" doesn't mean she didn't stay at that hotel. theres' nothing wrong with living in that hotel; she did what she had to do.

    • pointhimout

      @54 why r u moving to GA? Where are you relocating from?

      PiscesRising, i am very familiar with the area and it's ES. While Natina may not have been "crackish and undesireable" the ES is. It may not be a Motel 6 but it isnt far from it.
