Tamla Horsford

The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office just announced the investigation into the death of Tamla Horsford is closed. Investigators ruled Horsford's death was caused by an accidental fall from a deck in the backyard of a home in Forsyth County.

Horsford, a 40-year-old mother-of-5, was found dead in the backyard at 7:30 a.m. after attending an adult slumber party on Nov. 4, 2018. Her head, torso and extremities showed signs of trauma inconsistent with an 8-foot fall from a 2nd story balcony.

Horsford's best friend, Michelle Wynne Graves says, "It's impossible to get the injuries that she had from one fall."

At a news conference on Wednesday afternoon, investigators said there was no evidence of foul play in Horsford's death and that her injuries were consistent with a fall from the home's deck.

According to the sheriff's office, the major crimes unit and detectives "found no evidence indicative of foul play or an assault." Detectives spent 300 man hours conducting the investigation and interviewing 30 witnesses.

Horsford's father, Kurtland St. Jour, spoke with Ryan Cameron on Majic 107.5 after the press conference on Wednesday.

Mr. St. Jour told Ryan he felt better that the case is closed, because now his attorney (Lee Merritt) can request crime scene photos and other evidence.

He said there was no action in the death investigation until the officials were pressured by social media posts and local news reports this week.

Mr. St. Jour said the owner of the house stated no one fell off her deck in a post on Facebook.

Mr. St. Jour said a pathologist who conducted a 2nd autopsy on Horsford found post-mortem injuries. He said her wrist was broken but the pathologist found no blood pooling from the wrist injury, meaning she was dead when her wrist was fractured.

Horsford's story made worldwide news on the Daily Mail UK website on Wednesday.

Over 200,000 people viewed Horsford's story on WSB-TV social media.

Stay tuned for more details.

    This story is sad, mysterious and it seems like pieces are missing.

  • Malai

    They show the balcony she “fell from”.. It couldn’t have been more than a 8 foot drop.. and it was grass at the bottom.. it shouldn’t have been enough to kill her if she hadn’t already been BEATEN prior to “falling”... and these mfs hurry up n run n close the case.. it’s extremely suspicious

  • Dainese

    Yoooo. They closed this case? A cover up of astronomical proportions. MFs never loved us.

  • Ryan

    So they closed it and think that'll be it huh?

  • Sushi

    Did they now... Interesting

  • xenaD

    And to think I count my blessings everyday, I almost (thank u Jesus) fell off a 17 story balcony! My goodness ? my stupid boyfriend boyfriend (current fiance) keeps saying thank god I didn’t fall, my family would’ve blamed him ??

  • therealashland

    People are sharing the gofundme link

  • Mielle Downey

    Her husband is telling you people he is happy with his insurance and if he dont have an Issue then close the case. Those where her ride or die (excuse the pun) friends .

    In other news we have this fool having regrets. Mothers teach your daughters better.
    " ISIS terrorist Hoda Muthana went to join the Islamic State five years ago.
    Now the terrorist bride wants back in the US.
    Muthana believes she should face some counselling but not prison time for joining an Islamic army at war with the US."

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    She was dead before she 'fell'. That's why they broke her wrist after she was already dead--to make it look as if she died from the fall.

  • xenaD

    Exactly, I know somebody who jumped off of second story balcony from the police and got away. Ion trust anything about any dam thing

  • Mielle Downey

    Amen, Black Jesus is forever merciful.

  • KJBibleonSlavePlantations

    how about no Jesus,There's no J in the Hbrew language.Jesus is a made up fictional character by the cave ,Neanderthal ,demonic, Roman Catholic church

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Sounds like she was dead and they pushed her over the balcony to make it look like she fell then allowed the body to lay there for someone else to find so they can pretend like they didn’t know she was out there. ?

  • Mielle Downey

    How about I pray for you and rebuke you at the same time Bloop!!!.Whatever Floats your boat but we are here because of a higher power and my faith is in him. Black Jesus!!!

  • goat

    Arrest err'body!! Sheriff ass too for trying to close this case.

  • Li-Wright

    Does anyone know where the home insurance comes in? Can the husband sue the home owner and the home owner get the insurance comp to pay?

  • 100milesperhour

    He said her wrist was broken but the pathologist found no blood pooling from the wrist injury, meaning she was dead when her wrist was fractured.

    More effort and energy was put into exposing Jussie than was put into figuring out what the world happened here. Black women dies at wht persons home oh its an accident even though it has foul play written all over it. Jussie lies and creates a hoax allegedly and he should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Two different police departments but still! If Jussie was a white boy this all would have been swept under the rug, he'd have to pay for the lost man hours perhaps but that’s it!

    Why is it black people always can break a case through social media and just by looking at a picture but the FBI the sheriff's office and even sometimes a new station are always acting as if they're clueless...
    they noted that girl was murdered and they know that the whole town is in on it..
    What don't come out in the wash will come out in the rinse....?

    Please show me the name Jesus in the old testament! !! I bet a mil you wont find it.The Most High Yah never said in the old testament ,THE MOST HIGH YAH son was coming,sent. cave ,Neanderthal ,demonic,Greeks wrote the fake azz New testament.Please Keep believing your oppressor or slv master.

    THE MOST HIGH YAH QUOTES: Isaiah 43:11 I, yes I, am the LORD, and there is no Savior but Me.

  • TheWildChild

    Is this woman's husband speaking out on this suspicious account of her death? It seems to be a lot of random relatives, wonder what's the husband's take on all this?. I noticed that GoFundMe campaign is for a private investigator and other resources to help get justice on this case.

  • Dasright

    Hey can definitely try as the liability exists. The home insurance, of course, will get their lawyers to try to fight it tooth and nail. This case is a sad and unfortunate reminder that this black woman's life didnt matter. The investigation was piss poor ?

  • KJBibleonSlavePlantations

    What power do you have?aRE YOU GOING TO pRAY TO THE MOST HIGH YAH or fake azz blk ,white Jesus!!!!1

  • Dasright

    Exactly.. they think we're stupid.

    He probably killed her...

    What are your beliefs? Just curious..

    why is her father and friend leading the way to find out what happened and not the husband? Just wondering...

    I always wondered this, especially with Sandra Bland, Kenneka Jenkins etc everybody and they mama was on the case

  • KJBibleonSlavePlantations

    I believe in a spiritual system not religion ,encompassed by THE MOST HIGH YAH and The ancestors.
    People keep looking up for God but the ancestors and the Most high Yah are within blk people.,trees,grass sun, etc...
    99 percent of us have lost our gateway to them.
    Old testament:You are Gods.So true for blk people ,but if our God or spirit is dead within us,then we can't connect with them.

  • Sushi

    Bigger than that nobody missed her....

  • Juslv374

    Amen!!

  • Evillene

    It just goes to show that law enforcement is disinclined to investigate a homicide that looks like an actual hate crime -- but will go balls-to-the-walls when there's suspicion that it could be a hoax.

  • http://www.legalizemelanin.com Legalize Melanin

    The husband probably isn't speaking because he's mad she was at a damn sex orgy party anyway. There was no "football moms sleepover" with 7 women and 3 men. They were fuckin and she probably went against her husband's wishes and got herself killed. So he's not getting his hands in it

  • Rodmilla De Ghent

    why was she there in the first place, its ok to use discernment sometime. rip though

  • Dasright

    Thank you for explaining! Always interesting to hear others' perspectives on their beliefs.

  • dontgetblocked

    I'm sorry she died but she was at an orgy gone wrong. She was a mother, 40 and married. Had she been where she should have been...asleep next to her husband...she'd be alive right now.

  • PlayerP

    God, not today. Make it make sense.
    God bless her family.

  • TheOwley

    Another incomplete case. Who are they trying to protect. Obviously this is an adult gathering that went wrong. No justice for this lady. RIP.

  • Olga Summer

    ? umkay.... sooo I think...
    I’m being led to believe this was in fact a S&M orgy which would explain the bruises ... the fall would explain the intoxication and drug usage...and it could have been drug and alcohol overload in addition to the fall that caused her death! If this is indeed the case then all participants need to come fourth!! Simple math!

    The husband- sheer embarrassment! I don’t believe he knew the full length of what was going on! Welp... either that or he couldn’t get a babysitter for the night and sat this one out.. ?????

    I now have no choice but to conclude it’s probably is a orgy that unfortunately got crazy and resulted in someone dying... which would be an open and shut case - which explains the husbands silence...

    Praying for her five kids, so sad!! Listen people be careful who you go around and have your guard up always because people can pretend and be the person they want you to perceive them as. It’s a lot of wierdo people (at work, on your kids sports team, at the gym etc) that have a whole another life when they get home. Sorry bro I am not coming to your house or riding in your car don't know you like that.... just cause we have one thing in common don’t mean we common.

    So after death her body was still moving and her wrist was fractured?

  • Allihave2say

    His wife has died. He's now a single parent and has to find a way to explain to his 5 children that their mother isn't coming home again, ever. He found out his wife was at a party having sex with others (adultery and betrayal). He is in shock, shame and sadness.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Her wrist was fractured because of the fall? Ppl tend to cover their face when they're falling..also, bodies can make movement after death.

    How much movement can a body make after death? I heard of taking a last breath or maybe even releasing a bowl movement but not injuries on the waist. I have never heard of this much movement after death.

    RIP Tamla. You can't be friends with everybody. Sometimes you can bring the killer or killers into your life unknowingly.

  • Grace B

    This is unconscionable if anyone believes she fell and sustained the injuries described. An altercation and foul play is at hand. It is imperative Black families look into this story, talk about it, call forsyth county and our reps. so that this does not stay closed! I am so saddened that 5 young black men will go without their mother!!! Jose Barrera, boyfriend to homeowner, was fired from his county job because of accessing police documents as a probation officer. Only the guilty would do such a thing!!!

No matter fact it’ll be 30-40 years down the road where everyone involved is dead or sick and can’t be brought to trial smh

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    THIS!

  • SweetTEE

    You keep contradicting yourself. The coroner literally said that he wrist was broken AFTER the fall and she died...which is why the blood didn't pool. So how could she cover her face? Or BREAK a wrist after death..aint that much movement in the world and you know it. The issue here is that your cousins are covering a murder with their white connections and had this been YOU , there would be national outrage and a real investigation.

    A college friend of mine was told during a robbery that he could either jump from the dorm window or get shot in the head. He jumped and every single bone in his body broke. His entire body was bruised. his head..lord have mercy. Now I know the height was a little different,,,but I'm confused about this here.

    This reminds me of Kendrick Johnson and how those white people explained his autopsy. All lies and I hope her husband pools some funds and finds the most grimy goons he can find. Everybody in that house would need to speak with me.
