A Florida mother has received a murder charge after her two little girls were found drowned in a canal. As The Chatty Passenger previously reported, 7-year-old Daysha Hogan and 9-year-old Destiny Hogan were found floating in a canal outside a condominium complex in Lauderhill, which is near Fort Lauderdale. Reports said that the bodies were found hours apart, on the same day, and police did not see any signs of trauma to their bodies.
After the first body was found, detectives walked the length of the canal that runs behind the Habitat II Condominiums, but did not find anything else. Then, at 8:45 p.m., police received a 911 call from someone who spotted the second child’s body.
Police believe that the girls mother, Tinessa Hogan, 36, who had been in the area offering to baptize people in the area, drowned the girls. She was named a person of interest in the case shortly after the bodies were discovered on June 22 but, she has been officially charged with their murder.
According to CBS Miami, Hogan has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder and is currently being held at the Broward County Jail.
She did not appear at her court hearing Wednesday morning where she was denied bond.
The said Hogan is not allowed to have guns, ammunition, or any sort of weapon. She is also to have no contact with minors
The judge agreed to the state’s request to seal the warrant and arrest affidavit for 90 days as this is still an active investigation and that information out there could taint witnesses
Lauderhill Police Detectives urge anyone with information about Tinessa, Daysha, and Destiny Hogan to contact them at (954) 497-4700 or Crime Stoppers at (954) 493-8477(TIPS).
