Woman, Mother, And Her Girlfriend Were Killed In A Car Accident:
The crash happened at about 2:05 AM on Thursday March 29th, 2018 in Redford Township, Michigan. Driving up from Muskegon, Michigan, the women traveled to Detroit to support Detroit rap artist, Untamed. Untamed, whose real name is Tim McGough, was the brother of Jatia and son of Mia. After supporting Untamed, the ladies were headed back home as they wanted to show their support to their loved one.
According to MI Headlines, the women were traveling in a gray 2008 Kia Optima. It’s unclear which of the women were driving. However, new reports state that the vehicle was traveling south on Telegraph Rd. at a high rate of speed. Tragically, the driver lost control of the car and struck a pole in the median. Additionally, witnesses confirmed that the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed southbound on Telegraph Road. They stated that the vehicle was traveling at speeds of 100 miles per hour or higher.
This incident is still under investigation and no further information is available at this time. It is not known if alcohol or drugs were a factor at this time.

The family of Jatia and Mia McGough created a Go Fund Me page to help with the cost of their burial. If you would like to contribute to the fund, please Click Here. The following message was written on the McGough’s Go Fund Me link:
Our Mother and Sister died in a tragic car accident the morning of March 29,2018. My sister only being 29 years old did not have any life insurance. We are asking for any donations to help bury them in the same cemetery and making sure their wishes are met. This is not the first time our family has seen tragedy. We were removed from our mothers care by the state of Michigan and spent ten years in foster care, after which we reunited with our mother and siblings. With that being said we do not have the average American family stature to make sure that our mother and sister are buried. Our mother and sister leave behind Karlos, Alex (AD), and Timothy as well as grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. We lost our family unit once when we were taken into foster care and we have spent the last 8 to 10 years trying to rebuild our broken family. This is devastating to us to not only lose our mother but our sister who raised us and acted as a second mother, essentially losing the two people who taught us to be who we are. If you are able to donate anything it would be greatly appreciated so that we are able to give our mother and sister a proper burial. If you have any questions about what happened, the local news has covered the story and I will attach the link. I will attach my phone number (206-747-3003) as well if you have any further questions. Thank you all and remember to tell your loved ones that you love them.
The chilling words that ended the Go Fund Me link was a message that Raeniquah Watson wrote on her Facebook page. Shortly before her tragic death, she encouraged her Facebook friends to tell their family members that they loved them as life is unpredictable.
Our prayers are with the families.
