She said it still isn’t even clear where Calloway was killed before ending up in the creek. She lived in Gainesville, some 55 miles away, as she had most of her life.
At least one theory has emerged: “Detectives believe that it may be gang-related,” Campbell said.
Jones said Thursday she too fears her daughter’s death could’ve been related to Calloway’s gang ties.
She knew Calloway, who’d been a cheerleader and member of the color guard in school, ended up associating with gang members about a year before her death. Calloway told her mother.
“This gang thing is going to get you two things: dead or in prison,” Jones recalls telling the 35-year-old.
Since Calloway’s death, the mother has stayed engaged and tried to push the police to keep pushing for answers.
“It’s hard,” Jones said. “I don’t want to accept that she’s gone and she’s not coming back.”
