Why did the System Fail Knia Walton?

Why did the System Fail Knia Walton?

Tiffany Walton, the mother of Knia Walton appeared on Flippin’ the Script radio talk show with host Francetta L. Mays on The Greenwood Beat – WFPG to discuss the investigation and bring awareness surrounding her daughter’s case. Walton to Francetta, “I am aware that my daughter used drugs but she was still a person. She still deserves justice.” She went on to give details of her daughter’s “murder” that took place July 4, 2023 at Pioneer Plaza, 901 N Elgin Ave., Apt. 214 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

As of now, the system has failed Knia. Tiffany talks with Francetta about the circumstances surrounding her daughter’s murder. She describe her interaction with the person(s) she believes is “allegedly” responsible for Knia’s death. The crime scene was not processed properly, very little questioning took place and the bloody shirt that was taken off of her daughter before medics responded was NOT taken with authorities.

What are we doing? How has this happened? Watch the interview below.
