Tyquan, 20, was shot and killed in the 200 block of South 11th Street on Dec. 28, 2015. He had been the third and remaining son of Sonia Rogers to be murdered in the streets of Newark, NJ. Between 2011 to 2015 Anthony, Antonie then finally Tyquan had all provided their mother with a front seat to her personal hell, being murdered with no justice. From having to take her eldest child off of life support, to getting that gut wrenching call saying her baby boy was now dead too, Sonia has bravely faced a lifetime of heartbreak in a short amount of time.
After becoming a mother at 15, Sonia placed her youth and dreams on hold to be the best mother she could.. Many of the people close to her can agree that Sonia was a caring but strict mother who did everything in her power to provide for her children. Being a single mother in Newark was not always easy and even with all of her efforts, the glamour and the streets were enough to pull Anthony and Antoine in.
Now with them gone, Sonia has been focusing on getting justice for her sons and stopping the violence in Newark. It’s very sad when a mother has to bury her children, but it’s even worse when you feel like no one cares. As long as she has breath in her body, Sonia will continue to fight to keep her son's memory alive and will continue to seek the justice they deserve.
