UPDATE: Months ago, an East St. Louis community banned a young mother together to support Sabrina Dunigan when she lost her five children in a fire at an apartment. On August 6, which was her birthday, Sabrina left her children inside the apartment to pick up her boyfriend. When he returned home, he found his second-floor apartment on fire.
As we reported earlier, his father Greg Dunigan and his wife Vanessa Mosle lived in the apartment but could not rescue the children. Blind Vanessa had to jump from the second story and Greg tried to rescue the children but said the fire was already very bad where the children were. Although the deaths of the children not only shocked the community, pictures of the children’s caskets at their memorial also went viral on social media, prompting many people to demand justice for the children.
However, it seems that the tragedy, in this case, is ongoing because Sabrina is facing the death of her five children, Loy-El Dunigan, 2; Jabari Johnson, 4; Twin 8-year-old girls, Heaven and Nevah “Veh” Dunigan; And Deontae Davis, 9. According to STL Today online court records for the St. Clair County show, Sabrina faces five counts of endangering a child’s life / health, one of which is a criminal charge.
Online court records also indicate that the case is pending The deadly fire is under investigation by the Illinois State Fire Marshal’s Office and it continues to raise questions about whether the children were home alone, which was originally suspected.
As the investigation continued, the report further found that both Sabrina and her father suspected that the incident was caused by an electric fire and a lack of smoke detectors. The landlord, however, denies the claim, saying he has installed smoke detectors on all of his rented properties.
So far, no court date has been set, but we will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
