Ieasha Abrams’ life was headed in a positive direction during the fall of 2017. After years of struggling with drugs and occasional run-ins with the law, the 34-year-old woman seemed to be in a much better place. Ieasha had a steady job at a restaurant, and she also had recently leased an apartment off of Beacon Parkway East in Birmingham, Alabama. According to family members, Ieasha was the happiest she had been in a long time. This made her disappearance in late September 2017 all the more confusing and shocking.
Due to Ieasha’s previous struggles, her three children were being cared for by her relatives. However, prior to her disappearance, she often spent time with them and her other family members. According to reports, Ieasha was last seen by her loved ones on September 25th, 2017. After that, nobody in her family saw or heard from her again.
Days later, on October 4th, 2017, local Crime Stoppers received a call about a body in a wooded area behind Abrams’ apartment building. K-9s were brought to the scene, and a body of a deceased female was found behind a dumpster. Shortly thereafter, the body was identified as that of Ieasha Abrams.
Ieasha’s manner of death was initially unclassified for over a month. Then, the coroner finally labeled her death as a homicide. The coroner’s findings determined that Ieasha “had been assaulted in a manner that could not have resulted in a death by natural causes.” Police have still not disclosed the exact cause of death, but it’s clear that Ieasha’s life was brutally taken.
