*UPDATE* It is with a heavy heart that I must report Alisha McQueen, a missing woman from Detroit, Michigan, has been found deceased. A body of a woman was found encased in cement and was later identified to be Alisha. Her husband, Gregory McQueen, was suspected in her disappearance and earlier this week he was officially charged with her murder.
“I want her to be able to rest in peace and to know that justice will be served,” said her mom Lisa Gross.
“He’s a very violent person, this is the kind of things he does and I’m not surprised this is what happened to my sister. There’s a lot of regret because I feel like this could have been prevented,” said Alisha’s sister Tanisha.
McQueen faces life in prison and returns to court next week.
My condolences to Alisha’s family.
Alisha McQueen was going through a difficult transition. The 27-year-old mother was in the process of leaving her husband, so she was living in a Detroit, Michigan apartment with her sister, Tanisha Holloway. Alisha was hanging out at home in early March 2018, just lounging on the couch as many of us do around 8:00 p.m. when she said she was making a quick run to the local gas station and that she would be right back. It shouldn’t have taken her long, seeing as how she was only going to walk a couple of blocks down the street.
When Alisha left that apartment, no one expected that was the last time she would be seen. Alisha did, however, send an ominous text message to her daughter that simply read, “Green f150.”
“She sent that text message – I don’t know if she thought she was in danger or what,” Tanisha said.
The description of a vehicle that Alisha texted may not mean much to some, but it means everything to her family. You see, Alisha’s estranged husband drove, you guessed it, a green, F-150 truck. According to Tanisha, her sister’s husband, Drewmeshus McQueen, Jr., had been abusing Alisha for years.
“A very dysfunctional marriage,” Tanisha said. “There has been abuse, infidelities, just wasn’t a good relationship. But they are still legally married. My sister was talking about divorce.”
Alisha’s sister, Teasha Bonner, is certain that Alisha and her husband were together when Alisha disappeared.
“He was with her and she texted the vehicle that she was in,” Teasha said. “Currently, he’s in jail. He was not supposed to have contact with her. He was on a tether. So, he’s in jail right now. He’s not speaking. He said he doesn’t know where she is. So we’re hoping soon he can speak up and tell us where she is. She was with him last.”
McQueen is incarcerated on unrelated charges.
“At this point, I’m feeling confused and hurt,” Teasha stated. “I know it’s not her character to just have her family and children concerned about her. It’s not her character to just disappear, lose contact with everyone, not reach her children.”
Adding to Alisha’s family’s concern is that the young woman has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. It’s been over five months since she went missing and each passing day is agony for her five children.
“You definitely need to speak up. God would want you to speak up. At the end of the day, God would want you to speak up. Do the right thing,” Tesha said. “It’s not just right to keep that type of information from her children, other family, and people who care about her.”
Alisha is described as being approximately 5’3″ tall and 200 pounds. She was wearing a shoulder-length, black curly wig with brown highlights when she disappeared. Her natural hair is dark brown/black, and she has brown eyes. Alisha also has multiple facial piercings.
On August 7, Teasha posted to the Metro Detroit Crime & Homicide Facebook Page asking for help in locating her sister.
“Has anyone seen her??? This is my sister Alisha McQueen [formerly] known as Alisha Holloway. She’s 28 years old around 210lbs with brown eyes and dark brown hair. She went missing around the area of Warren and Trumbull the night of March 7th 2018, last with her husband ( that’s 5 months now 😫) Please if you know her whereabouts or have seen her or have ANY information contact me at 313-742-1399. Thank you!!”
Tanisha made a public plea days after Alisha went missing in March. On August 9, Teasha revisited that same Metro Detroit Crime & Homicide page where she shared Tanisha’s five-month-old Facebook post.
