My heart, my world, and best friend, and mother of my children (while carrying our daughter) was taken from me. R.I.P. Jessica and Ayanna Foderingham. I'm not ready to raise two boys on my own."

The medical examiner also identified the victim as 29-year-old Jessica Foderingham. The report stated that witnesses called 911 and first responders attempted to resuscitate the victim. While en route to the hospital she was pronounced dead.
