Daguerre’s eight-year-old mother opened up about the shooting that killed her daughter.
She says they were returning from visiting relatives when one of them opened fire.
Daguerre’s mother, Tracy Holmes, said, “Daguerre didn’t deserve this, she was too young, and she was ahead of her all her life.”
Holmes is in shock at the murder of her 8-year-old daughter.
“We just had a great weekend and she was so happy,” said Holmes.
Holmes and Daguerre were picked up from a relative’s home in the Back of the Yards on Monday night.
“She couldn’t wait to get home to play with her toys,” Holmes said.
Dagur and her mother were riding in the back of a black Subaru. The driver was Daguerre’s father, and his friend was in the passenger seat.
They reached a red signal, and a black Dodge Charger stopped behind.
When the light turned green on Union and 47th Street, the passenger descended and fired several shots.
Dagur died in Kummer Children’s Hospital.
“I don’t know how a person can live with himself after doing this,” Holmes said.
The mother set up GoFundMe to cover the expenses related to the death of her only daughter.
“She loved styling her hair, she loved school. We were destined to do her hair styling from distance learning,” Holmes said.
Holmes says life wouldn’t be the same without her intelligent and bossy child.
With whom would I attend manicure appointments, and dress up appointments. ”Holmes said,“ I never thought this would ever happen to me.
