Mother Of Murdered Teenage Girl Pleads To Public For Help

NORTH MIAMI (CBS4)- A North Miami mother is pleading for the public’s help in solving the murder of her 15-year-old daughter at their home on January 2nd.

Police initially thought this was a case of murder-suicide, but are now saying it was a triple homicide and they, too, are asking for anyone with information to come forward.

“She was my everything, I loved her very much,” Audrey Hansack said.

Her daughter, Ashley Chow, and 25-year-old Harlen Peralta along with her friend, 35-year-old Israel Rincon, were shot and killed inside a home they shared at 480 N.W. 134th St.

“She was only 15 years old. I can’t believe it,” Hansack said. “She’s my angel, she’s in heaven right now, she’s in heaven.”

Hansack said she clings to precious memories through photos she showed of her daughter. There are images of her school trip to the U.S. Supreme Court and a picture from her prom last year at Thomas Jefferson Middle School.

“She was President of her school at Thomas Jefferson,” Hansack said. “The teachers loved her, everybody loved her. She had a bright future.”

Hansack said her daughter had been attending North Miami Senior High School.

The victims are remembered at a makeshift memorial outside their home with photos, roses, candles and more than 20 Teddy bears, along with a series of notes and cards.

On Friday friends of the victims stopped by the site all day.

Katia Jean-Michel, a neighbor said, “Ashley was a very nice girl. This is a bad scene, such a waste,” she said. “For stupid reasons, this happened. I have a lot of questions. I’d like to find out what happened. That would be good for the family and the neighborhood.”

Hansack also has questions. “North Miami Police are not telling us what’s going on,” she said.

In response, North Miami Police Major Neal Cuevas said they are releasing limited information while the investigation is in motion. He said even discussing a potential motive could harm the investigation.

“We want the public to provide us with information,” Cuevas said, “no matter how insignificant they think this might be.”

Cuevas noted that it did not take long for tragedy to strike.

“Here we are and just two days into the new year, three people are shot to death,” said Cuevas.

Fighting back tears, Hansack said, “Call the Police if you know anything. Someone must know something. Someone must know something.”

Anyone with information on this case is urged to call North Miami Police or Miami-Dade Crimestoppers at (305) 471-TIPS.

    When you say someone is involved in drugs it is a serious allegation . He was not involved with drugs. He was involved in baseball. Please respect him.

  3. AG says:

    randi – I can’t believe how ignorant and senseless you are. To make a comment like this without knowing the facts…don’t you have any respect? You clearly didn’t know Israel, but then again I wouldn’t expect you to since your ignorance speak for you.

    All of the accusations,motive stuff etc. will not bring back these 3 people who lost their lives in a senseless matter. What is important is that this monstrous animal be brought to justice and maybe even put to death.

  5. OE says:

    ISRAEL WAS A GOOD MAN. NO DRUGS JUST BASEBALL; ITS A SHAME THAT NO ONE HAS THE GUTS TO STEP UP WITH INFO; WEAK SOULS SOMEONE KNOWS WHAT HAPPEN. ISRAEL NEEDS YOUR HELP. HE IS NOT RESTING FULLY UNTIL IT IS COMPLETE. TURN IN INFO TO POLICE.
