The Atlanta (CBS46) investigates has uncovered new details in the murder investigation of the young model who found shot dead and naked in an Atlanta park.
Bridget Shiel was a model, and had also become involved in Atlanta’s booming sex industry. She featured in Ghanaian hip-life artiste, Criss Waddle’s "Bie Gya" music video featuring Stonebwoy before some few weeks later she was pronounced dead on 8 June, 2016.
Law enforcement analyst Vincent Hill, a frequent consultant for CBS46 found Shiel’s sex ad on Backpage.com, an online marketplace for sex with thousands of classifieds.
Shiel’s ad reads ” Hello Gentlemen. Nastia here. An exotic and seductive vixen with a touch of class and elegance.”
CBS46 uncovered several police reports involving Shiel dating back to 2010 when she was thirteen and in middle school. Police responded to a child abuse call. A counselor reported Shiel returned to school after being assaulted by her mother. Shiel was taken from her home by a DFACS worker at that time and sent to live with her grandmother in Washington D.C.
Six years later, just a few months ago on February 13, a domestic dispute was reported by Shiel. She called 911 and said her boyfriend, 21 year old Kevin Anthony Kinnie, had hit her in the mouth.
Two days later, another domestic dispute call was phoned in to police. This time a fight broke out between Shiel and a woman living in the house with her and Kinnie. Both Shiel and the other woman were taken to jail.
People have been tight lipped about this case, and it’s far from clear whether or not Shiel’s apparent work as an escort had anything to do with her horrifying death. But there is no doubt that sex tracking puts many women at risk, especially in Atlanta.
However, with limited information and some doubts and speculations, it came across as possible misinformation and many were uncertain. Some even stated it could be a publicity stunt. Maybe people could not believe another model will pass away so soon right after another.
