Tenyka “Nikki” Phillips lost her friend, Cindy Jackson, and her sister, Krystal T. Phillips, to murder within seven months of each other.
A man killed Jackson on her birthday on Christmas Day of 2017 in Eatonville, and a man who said he was “awoken by demons” killed Krystal Phillips, 30, in Eatonville on July 13, 2018. Krystal Phillips left behind an 8-year-old son James. Both of the killings were reported in the news.
James and his father are staying with Tenyka Phillips as they grapple with the loss of the mother of one.
“His father does what he can, but every child needs a mother’s touch,” Tenyka Phillips said. “Everywhere you saw my sister you saw James. He was like a handbag on your shoulder. She took him everywhere.”
Tenyka Phillips, 28, worked the nightshift with her sister at McDonald’s.
“My sister was my everything since day one,” she said. “I was with my sister 24/7. We worked together. We got up together. I just miss her so much.”
