Florida: Two Little Girls Found Drowned After Their Mother had Been Offering to Baptize People!

Two little girls are dead and Florida authorities suspect their mother is responsible for their murder.

Lauderhill police Lt. Mike Bigwood identified the sisters during a Wednesday evening news conference as 7-year-old Daysha Hogan and 9-year-old Destiny Hogan. The bodies were found in a canal not far from the family's home. Destiny’s body was spotted Tuesday afternoon outside a condominium complex in Lauderhill, which is near Fort Lauderdale. Daysha’s body was found just before 9 p.m., not far from where the first body was located.

According to Click Orlando, at first, authorities did not suspect foul play because the first girl showed no signs of trauma. 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, had been in the area offering to baptize passersby on Monday. The girls were last seen near the canal with their mother Monday evening, Bigwood said. Lawna Johnson, 51, told the SunSentinel she was sitting near the canal Tuesday when she spotted the body in the water.

“It’s just upsetting,” she said. “I see things on TV; I ain’t never seen something real like that.”

Hogan was taken into custody but, as of right now, no official charges have been named. According to the authorities Hogan never reported her daughters as missing and that has raised several red flags.
