Shequenia Burnett, Terkessa Wallace Missing

The case of Terkessa Wallace may be tied to the murder of her friend, Shequenia Burnett. The last time anyone saw both women was on January 10, 2014, in North Little Rock, Arkansas. Then, nearly two years later in December 2015, a fisherman made a gruesome discovery in the Arkansas River.

A leg was found floating in the river, and while it would take some time to identify its owner, it proved to belong to 36-year-old beloved mother Shequenia Bennett. What investigators found disturbing is that 34-year-old Terkessa Wallance and Shequenia were childhood friends, described as being very close. Their relationship wasn’t just based on a light-hearted, longtime friendship; the two women were also reportedly involved in drug use on and off throughout the years. On the day that they both disappeared, Terkessa and Shequenia had been in steady contact with one another either through phone calls or through text messages. It’s unclear if they met up at a certain point, but they both have never been seen or heard from again.

Terkessa Wallace dropped off her five-year-old son with family members and never returned. Initially, investigators didn’t make the connection between Terkessa and Shequenia, but it was the phone records that let them know that something was amiss. Shequenia’s death was ruled a homicide, and The Charley Project reports that Terkessa’s family believes she may have traveled to Texas. They also made it clear that it wasn’t like Terkessa Wallace to cease all contact with her loved ones, especially her son.

Terkessa’s white Toyota Corrolla is missing, as well, and Tracey Holmes, Terkessa’s cousin, said it took her years to stop chasing down similar-looking cars she saw on the road. She, like many members of Terkessa’s family, hold out hope that she didn’t suffer the same fate as her friend.

“Give me something so I can know if I can hold on to a little bit of hope or if I need to be planning a service myself,” Holmes, who is raising Terkessa’s son, said. “It’s been almost 6 years and it’s like I’ve been holding my breath this entire time. Let me breathe again.”

At the time of her disappearance, Terkessa was 5 feet 6 inches tall and 190 to 195 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. Both of her ears are pierced and she has a tattoo of writing on her upper right arm.
