A mother seeking justice and safety for her children and herself, after she fought to find her daughter JaShyah Moore.
Jamie Moore, the East Orange, New Jersey mother was hailed as a hero in her desperate attempts to find her missing 14-year-old daughter, JaShayah Moore. JaShyah went missing on October 14, 2021. Her disappearance occurred just 2 weeks before she and Jamie were to testify in a domestic abuse case against Jamie’s estranged husband, East Orange police officer Justin Jackson.
Thankfully, she was found several weeks later.
But it was only after a grassroots campaign assembled by Jamie Moore, her family, friends, activists and community members who rallied around the search party’s efforts. However, when JaShyah was located and declared safe, Ms. Moore was subsequently arrested and now faces charges of child endangerment.
Since, rumors, accusations and speculation about Ms. Moore and JaShayah have circulated throughout social media and news channels. To address her case and answer questions, Ark Republic spoke with Ms. Moore in an exclusive interview. This is the second part of our discussion with Ms. Moore on the chain of events leading to the discovery of JaShayah and what she says happened after being vocal about holding authorities accountable.
Ms. Moore nor her daughter were able to testify in the domestic violence case against Justin Jackson. The case against her husband for abusing Ms. Moore and JaShyah was thrown out while she was detained.
