In a new petition, Susana Morales’ grieving family members posted a list of demands and alleged that investigators broke the law when loved ones tried to report the murdered 16-year-old missing nearly a year ago.

The online campaign, which is accepting donations and has thousands of signatures on the petition, includes a lengthy post from Morales’ sister Jasmine. In that post, Jasmine said Morales’ family knew something was wrong within 20 minutes of her last text — and yet, she said, the Gwinnett County Police Department declined to immediately consider the teen a missing person:

Susana Morales was 16 when she went missing. She was my sister. On Tuesday, July 26, Susana was with our family all day and later that night, decided to go to a friend’s house. Her friend lived in the neighborhood, a 9-minute walk from our house, and she spent the evening there until around 9:40 PM when she texted our mom letting us know she was on the way home. This was a walk she had done many times, and we were waiting for her arrival. At 10 PM, she still wasn’t home. We knew something went wrong. We BEGGED Gwinnett County police to look for her, but they told us that people aren’t considered missing until after 48 hours. We knew we couldn’t wait that long. Throughout the entire investigation, the police dismissed us and said that she was a runaway when we knew she would never do that.

Among the list of the family’s demands is for the Gwinnett County Police Department to acknowledge that “Title 35 of the Georgia Code was violated when the officers told us to wait 48 hours before reporting Susana missing.”
