Tonya Burch: A Search For Peace

In a rough and violent neighborhood on the south side of Chicago, Tonya Burch, 45, walks tirelessly in search of information to lead her to her son's murderer. Deontae Smith, 19, was shot and killed by an unknown shooter at an unsanctioned block party on August 1, 2009. Tonya has distributed and posted thousands of fliers, three billboards, and has offered a reward for information. The harsh neighborhood in which the homicide happened in remains mute, but Ms. Burch continues to press on.
