Sarai Sierra was an exceptional upcoming artist

Posted: Feb. 28th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse
Where Sierra last stayed

The Late Sarai Sierra was a mother who had recently found her calling in photography. She was a growing artist who had a potential future in the photography industry.  She took a solo trip to Istanbul but, sadly, never returned home.

The coroner in Istanbul has released her body, and soon Sarai Sierra will be flown back to Staten Island for a funeral at the church where she met and later married her husband.

Her coffin is expected to land at the same New Jersey airport where she departed on January 7 on a solitary trip to Istanbul and where she was scheduled to return two weeks later. She never made the flight back and was missing until Saturday, when she was discovered in some undergrowth in the Turkish city, with what was determined to be a fatal blow to the head.

Still missing are the instruments with which she discovered, through the democracy of the Internet, that a churchgoing 33-year-old city bus driver’s wife can prove herself to be an artist of considerable sensitivity and talent.
