Murder victim's mother: 'I didn't get any closure'


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The mother of a 24-year-old woman who was brutally murdered last month plans to move back to Michigan to attend court proceedings related to her daughter's death.

A fundraiser was started to help Loretta Bailey cover moving costs from Covington, Louisiana to Muskegon.

Her daughter, Aniya Mack, was killed on June 24 when her ex-boyfriend stabbed her to death before putting her body in a suitcase, an unnamed Kalamazoo detective said in a hearing.

Lewis allegedly admitting to killing Mack and led investigators to her body nearly four days later.

"I didn't get any closure because I couldn't see her body. She had a closed casket (funeral), so I didn't get any closure from that," Bailey told 24 Hour News 8 via a FaceTime call. “Every day I'm learning something different about what happened (and) the manner that she died and how tragically that it happened.”

Bailey said Mack was studying psychology at Western Michigan University. 

She last spoke to her daughter over the phone on June 24, the day Mack was killed. When friends began calling Bailey in the days that followed, she knew something was not right.
