A  heartbreaking, horrific story out of Grand Rapids was featured this week on MTV's True Life Crime.

On Wednesday night, viewers learned about the murder of 16-year-old Mujey Dumbuya by the man who raped her.

According to Wood TV 8, True Life's production crew came to Grand Rapids earlier this year and interviewed Dumbuya’s family and friends.

They also spoke with Kentwood and Grand Rapids police along with the prosecutors who caught her killer, Quinn James, who took Dumbaya's life weeks before she was supposed to testify against him.

Dumbaya was last seen on a morning in January of 2018, on her way to East Kentwood High School. Her body was found days later in a wooded area in Kalamazoo.

The episode was called “Skipping School or Silenced Forever? The Mujey Dumbuya Case,” and aired Wednesday on MTV. The full episode can be watched here.
