Sadly, a woman who was listed as missing in Tonawanda has been found dead. According to an update on Facebook from WNY Missing & Unidentified Persons, she was found deceased. Akeda was listed as missing on Saturday, July 16, 2022.

Sad update: Akeda has been located deceased-RIP . Please continue to keep her friends & family lifted in prayers during this time.

While no details about her death have been released, various friends and family members of Akeda posted that she was last seen with a man, Kenneth Worthy.

There are lots of posts on Facebook alleging that this was a domestic violence death.

According to the United Nations Office on Drugs And Crime, women worldwide are prone to be victims of fatal domestic violence incidents,

Some 47,000 women and girls worldwide were killed by their intimate partners or other family members in 2020. This means that, on average, a woman or girl is killed by someone in her own family every 11 minutes.

My prayers go out to her loved ones and I hope her family can get justice for her untimely death.
