Trina Newman Cause of Death
Details of where and when Mayor was arrested were not immediately available. A moving memorial was held on December 29 in honor of the victim, Trina Newman Townsend, 62. Dozens of candles lit a makeshift memorial on a sidewalk as devastated family, friends and residents remembered the beloved pastor and community activist.
“The community is here honoring my sister, someone you didn’t even know,” Dwayne Newman told the assembled mourners. He described her as “someone who was doing something in the community that you never knew about, until her death.”
The mother and grandmother was raising two biological children and six adopted children. “My mother was a phenomenal woman,” Callie Harvey said. “Love is a verb, people forget it. She showed you that she loved you.” The accident occurred at 88th Street and South Broadway. Newman-Townsend was walking back to her car when she was struck by what police say was a blue midsize sedan.
The driver never stopped, investigators said. “Someone who means so much to the community didn’t deserve to go like this,” said Brittani Newman, Newman-Townsend’s niece. “We as a family deserve peace in our hearts. So we’re asking you to please, please, please surrender.”
