    Girl, 16, Missing in Fairfax County; Police Asking For Help

    At one point, Jholie Moussa told her sister she was stepping outside for a moment. When she failed to return, a concerned text from her prompted an odd response from Zhane Moussa.

    "She said she was going to a party in Norfolk," Zhane Moussa said. "And I'm, like, isn't that more than 3 hours away?"

    Desperate Fairfax County family pleads for safe return of missing teen
    Peggy Fox, WUSA 9:21 PM. EST January 15, 2018

    "The last time I saw her was in my room, she was doing my hair," said Zhane Moussa. "She stopped to text someone. After she stops, she says, 'I have to go, I'll be back real quick.'"
    The girls' father Cyrille Moussa said they've tried to trace Jholie's iPhone, but it went dead Friday night and she has not turned it back on, which makes them very concerned.

    She also left the house without her iPhone charger or any extra clothes. She was wearing a black puffy coat with brown fur around the hood and black Uggs with black bows.

    A neighbor saw Jholie standing on near Richmond Highway a few blocks from her home Friday evening as if she was waiting fo [sic] ride.
    Another alarming piece of information is who may have called Jholie at 5 p.m. on Friday. She left their home at 4:45. The 5 p.m. call came from the cell phone of a 12-year-old boy who lives nearbyby according to Cyrille Moussa who talked to the boy.

    Cyrille Moussa said the boy told him that he was playing basketball in the neighborhood when another man asked to use his phone to make a call. The man was a dark-skinned black black [sic] man with short twist-curls in his hair.

    Search for missing Fairfax Co. teenager marks 10 days

    It’s now been 10 days since a 16-year-old Fairfax County girl went missing and there's still no sign of Jholie Moussa of Alexandria, Va.

    The FBI is involved as Fairfax County Police continue searching for leads.

    FBI agents were in Norfolk over the weekend chasing possible leads into Jholie's disappearance. But so far, there’s been no sign of her.

    Ten days ago, she walked out her front door after Snap-chatting with an unknown man. She told her twin sister she would be right back and never came home.

    That was January 12th. By the time Jholie's twin realized her sister was missing it was Saturday. Police were called. Detectives came out an conducted interviews in the Mt. Vernon community.

    Isn't there any way for investigators to search Snapchat messages?

    Yes. I’m not sure if they can see the actual pictures. But I know they can tell which account sent messages or pictures to which other account.

    Missing Teen’s Mom: ‘It’s A Nightmare I Can’t Wake Up From’
    Sixteen-year-old Jholie Moussa disappeared 12 days ago.
    By David Lohr

    “Just because she voluntarily left her home does not mean she voluntarily left her block,” Stewart said. “Labeling her a runaway takes away a sense of urgency. Basically, we were told to do our own thing, look for her, and if we see anything to let them know.”

    Bailey declined to share additional information in the case. Stewart said her daughter, a 10th-grader at Mount Vernon High School, does not have a history of running away.

    “It would be completely out of character for her,” she said. “She’s never broken curfew and is an honor roll student. This week she was supposed to go take the test for her driver’s permit and she was excited about that. It’s just odd that they would consider her a runaway.”

    Stewart described her daughter as a timid young woman who doesn’t easily take to strangers.

    “She wouldn’t get into a car with anyone or speak with anyone she doesn’t know,” Stewart said. “She’s quiet and a not a social butterfly. She’s also short and skinny. If you didn’t know her, you wouldn’t think she is 16. She looks to be about 13 or 14.”
    “I urge whoever knows the whereabouts of Jholie to not be fearful,” Stewart said. “If you have her, please take her to any high school and let her walk in. You can be anonymous. And while I highly doubt Jholie is a runaway, I want her to know that if she decided to leave for whatever reason, she can come home. She’s not in trouble and we will get help and get through this together. We just want her home. That’s it. Whatever it takes, we can work it out.”

    Personally, I think either someone Jholie knew lured her out of the house or someone she knew introduced her to another person who lured her out of the house with nefarious intentions. I don't think she was the one who sent the text from her phone telling her sister she was heading to a party in Norfolk. Someone wanted it to appear she left voluntarily and wanted family (and LE) to think she is far from Fairfax. I think she's still in the area.

    Body of Missing Virginia 16-Year-Old Girl Jholie Moussa Found

    A body found Friday morning in a park in Fairfax County, Virginia, appears to be that of Jholie Moussa, the 16-year-old girl who went missing from her home in the county two weeks ago, officials say.

    The teenager's death is being investigated as a homicide, police said Friday night.

    Multiple police departments and the FBI searched for Moussa, who was last seen leaving home under mysterious circumstances.

    Moussa left home in the Alexandria section of Fairfax County on Friday, Jan. 12 after telling her twin sister she was going to a party in Norfolk, nearly 200 miles away, her sister told News4.
    An FBI representative previously said there was not a specific reason why the agency joined the investigation; they had available resources to help.

    Police previously said detectives spoke to about 20 people who had recent contact with Moussa. Many of her friends were not fully cooperating with investigators, police said.

    A Timeline of the Jholie Moussa Case
    Debra Alfarone, WUSA 10:15 AM. EST January 30, 2018

    ALEXANDRIA, VA. (WUSA9) - The family of 16-year-old Jholie Moussa is grieving.

    So many of you are feeling this deeply, too.

    There are Facebook groups dedicated to "Justice for Jholie."

    You have questions, so we thought it would be a good idea to break down what we know for sure, and what we're still waiting to find out.

    Friday, January 12, after 4:30 pm

    Jholie's twin sister Zhane says the two were in their Mount Vernon home.
    Jholie was Snapchatting with a strange man.
    Jholie said she'd be right back and walked out the front door.
    She never comes home.

    Friday, January 12, 5:24 pm
    A 13-year-old boy on the basketball court at Woodlawn Park, not far from Jholie's home, tells our Peggy Fox he let a man use his cell phone. That man called Jholie.
    What we don't know still is:

    1. How Jholie died?

    2. Will police offer a sketch of the man who borrowed that 13-year-old boy's cell phone?

    3. Why wasn't an Amber Alert issued?

    4. Was Jholie killed in that park or somewhere else?

    We will continue to dig for answers. There will be a public memorial service for Jholie Moussa this Thursday night at 6pm at the New Life Open Bible Church in Springfield, Virginia.

    Fairfax teen was called from the park where her body was found, family says
    Peggy Fox, WUSA 6:06 PM. EST January 29, 2018

    ALEXANDRIA, VA. (WUSA9) - The last call Jholie Moussa received on her cell phone could be the key to finding out what happened to the teen found dead in an Alexandria park on Friday.

    WUSA9 Reporter Peggy Fox learned Monday that Moussa's body was found in the same park where this last call was made.

    That call came from a phone that belonged to a 13-year-old boy, who was playing basketball in Woodlawn Park on the evening of Jan. 12.

    That boy told WUSA9 that he let a man he did not know borrow his cell phone.

    So frustrating that Jholie was listed as a runaway and an Amber Alert wasn't issued. :mad:
    There's a pretty detailed description of the man at the park who called Jholie from a borrowed phone on the video at the 2nd link.

    I really hope someone has a tip about what they saw in that park that day that will lead to the killer. This is completely heartbreaking. :(

    'Person of interest' is dead Virginia teen's ex: report

    Police in Fairfax County, Va., said Tuesday that a 17-year-old male from the Alexandria area has been identified as a “person of interest” in connection with the recent death of a teenage girl.

    The body of 16-year-old Jholie Moussa was discovered last week in a northern Virginia park.

    Moussa has been missing since mid-January and was initially listed as a runaway. But authorities said Tuesday that they’ve learned Moussa had been the victim of a previously unreported assault.

    The 17-year-old, whose name was not released, is in custody and has been charged in the assault, police spokesman Richard Perez said.

    Sources tell WUSA9 person of interest is Jholie Moussa's ex-boyfriend
    Debra Alfarone, WUSA 11:47 PM. EST January 30, 2018

    ALEXANDRIA, VA (WUSA9) - Police will not release the name of the “person of interest” in the murder of 16-year-old Jholie Moussa, because the person is 17 years old.

    Sources told WUSA9 the 17-year-old is Jholie's ex-boyfriend. Jholie’s mom, Syreeta Steward, said she told police about the ex-boyfriend when they first started investigating.

    "The reason it was all brought up was because they said she was not in any imminent danger," she said.
