Family relatives of Morales reported to the police that they had not seen her since the evening of July 26. Detectives claim Morales contacted her mother that evening at 9:40 p.m. to let her know she was heading to Windscape Village Lane, where she lived.

Allegations by the Family

Some of the Facebook posts report that the police first dealt with the issue as a runaway case. Her family said that time to the police that Susana has no history of running away and usually maintains contact with her family. Her Mother even begged everyone and the police to share the details of Susana Morales on the social media.

Some of the Facebook posts,

  • “Sad and disgusting when the color of her skin decided whether she’d get the coverage on media about her disappearance. Her mother pled for help but since Hispanic young women are characterized as typical runaways at that age, she never got the same attention as someone else would have. Sad truth of minorities.”


  • “I had a feeling answers were coming soon, I didn’t expect this outcome for you. You deserved more from Gwinnett county police department. They called you a runaway for months and said you weren’t believed to be in any danger, but you were in danger this whole time 💔😭. Your family never stopped fighting for you, they looked everywhere. I kept reposting and praying for you along with many others. Susana morales aged 16, disappeared July 26th of 2022, has now been found and may she Rest In Peace 💛👼🏽. I’m so sorry the system failed you 💔😢. #forever16″


  • “Remains found in Dacula were those of 16 year old Susana Morales, she was reported missing by her parents back in July 2022 to Gwinnett County Police Department who deemed her as a runaway and did no news coverage of her missing. Why? We all know why and that’s a question the Norcross department needs to answer to.”
