Reports read that Watson’s legacy is to be continued by her small son and a fiancé.

“I waited for her a couple of hours. She didn’t show. I texted her, ‘Are you OK?’ No answer,” states her fiancé Jerelle Martin.

“Thirty minutes after those four hours I waited, detectives knocked on the door.”

Martin states his fiancé never encountered any problems or got into fights with anyone.

“She was the most beautiful woman I ever met in this world. And these females took her life. It still does not feel real,”
