Te’a Liger was raped and murdered inside an apartment unit at the Vesta Adams Park apartment complex in the 1000 block of Delowe Drive in southwest Atlanta around 6 a.m. Wednesday. According to police, Te’a was standing outside the complex when she and two other acquaintances, a male and female, were forced inside by two men. From there, Te’a was sexually assaulted and shot in the head. Te’a and her acquaintances were robbed as well.
It’s pretty clear that Te’a was lesbian, from her numerous posts regarding dating women. Possibly a stud even. That makes what happened to her even more disturbing. Did they target her because of how she looked? It’s weird that there was allegedly another female and another male at the residence, but only Te’a was sexually violated and murdered. I will be sure to keep you updated. What happened to Te’a and the alleged circumstances does not sit well with my spirit.
Two picture collages that Te’a’s loved ones created are below.
Te’a was once a basketball standout at Kell High School in Marietta, where she graduated in 2016. On the NCSA Sports website, Te’a says the following:
I’m just a girl who wants to play. I want to play and I want to learn. I want to reach my full potential on and off the court. I’m a great candidate as I don’t believe that one person
can know every thing and there is always room for growth and improvement. I’m different in character because basketball is part of my fiber and I don’t play just for show. I play because I love team mechanics, the game and both team and the game’s dynamics. I am driven and work well independently and as a team academically.
My mom is a disabled veteran and she inspires me. I’ve seen the struggle of veterans and would like to become an architect to help redesign and restructure dilapidated housing for disabled veterans. I’d like to be able to continue basketball in college as it grounds me and continues to help me build stronger character and inner strength.
Rest in Peace Te’a Denise Rockelle Liger
