Allie goes through the details of the court proceedings and investigations in discovering the killer of a six-month-old baby.
I remember us getting information that a baby has been killed, in what at that stage looked like a robbery at her house in Lansdowne. The next day I went out with one of the producers at CapeTalk to Lansdowne.— Nisa Allie, Former EWN reporter
I will never forget the images that I saw when I got there ...Just a sheer devastation about a murder that made no sense.— Nisa Allie, Former EWN reporter
A few days later an arrest was made and somebody linked to the baby's biological father had been arrested. Later on we got to hear that it was Dina Rodriguez.— Nisa Allie, Former EWN reporter
Rodriguez was the girlfriend of Neil Wilson, who fathered Jordan during a previous relationship with Natasha Norton. She later confessed how she had become obsessed with getting the infant out of their lives.
Allie says she still remembers baby Jordan every year on her birthday, saying it will forever be something in her memory forever.
It was a young woman...jealousy drove her to do what she did. It was four young men who had been recruited to perform this crime and were paid a pittance for it.— Nisa Allie, Former EWN reporter
Allie is currently working as News Editor at eNCA.
