Mother who lost her son has final wish as she fights cancer
The mother of Amani Miller, who was shot and stabbed multiple times outside of Bayview Houses in Flatbush over six years ago, has one final wish as she sits in hospice with Stage 4 breast cancer.
“I want the NYPD to solve my son‘s case.”
“It’s been a few years now and we still don’t have justice,” said Allison Shinn, Amani’s mother. “That’s the goal, to get justice.”
Shinn has been battling Stage 4 breast cancer for years now, but she says that nothing is going to stop her from getting answers from police.
“My son was brutally murdered. He was shot in his head three times, multiple times in his body and was stabbed 50 times,” said Shinn. “No mother should have to go through that.”
The NYPD says that Amani Miller’s case is still an ongoing investigation but that no arrests have been made. Miller, who was a model and aspiring rapper, died at the age of 23.
Shinn says there is currently a reward up to $25,000 for anyone that can help police solve her son’s death.
