  1. Julius Charles Whaley, Jr (spiritually known as Amensa Shep Teker) was a very very very good and positive man. This is extremely out of character for him to have commit such a crime against that woman is inconceivable.

    He will be deeply missed.

  3. I have known Julius for almost 20 years. He was the type of person that if a moth flew into his residence he would place it ouside without harm. All people should know a man of such high values and dignity. It is highly unlikely that he would perpetrate such a crime. His Tuskegee University family is suffering greatly from the loss of one it's most positive offspring. As a friend said recently "She took something special from us."

  5. I knew Julius at Tuskegee University, I am deeply saddened by his passing. A mutual friend of ours informed me of his tragic demise just days ago. The Julius I knew would never harm a woman. The world has truley lost an awesome black man.

  7. I believe Tania Wallace-Bey to be a honest and good natured person. The so called victim was no angel(he was human) nor was he liked by his fellow Ausar-Auset society worshipers.

  8. In response to the anonymous person. That is a bold faced LIE. Because if that was the case the Ausar Auset Society would not have conducted his funeral services nor would the DC community of the Society have rented a bus to attend it neither.

  9. And another thing Tania Wallace-Bey was indeed a very sweet woman and I have shared many meals, hugs, kisses, and laughs with her. However, I knew a tint of the other side of her. I knew that she had emotional problems. But I did not think that she would commit such a heinous act against Amensa. My only question to her would be: WHY?

  10. In response to anonymous who claims that julius was not well liked, he was well loved. Tania Wallace Bey wanted to be that "girl" and she could not!

    "Lady". And if any of you really knew her you wouldn't bad mouth the Sistah. And if any of you haven't been the victim of abuse. Stick a sock in it. Tania....God's Blessings to you in this situation and allways. Your real true philadelphia family and friends. We love you, dearly...

  12. Tania Wallace might have been all of the things that the person above is saying that she was but Amena was not in Philly looking for her she was in Maryland looking for him. And how many people travel with a loaded gun?

  14. Titi, Was a powerfully positive, warm Loving talented young woman. I have traveled with her
    sung,performed,cried with her. She was one the the only people to come to my aid when I need a friend in the past. I know her spirit and soul is pure. This was a tragic event for everyone in both families. Lets move forward to heal not continue to point fingers. I love you Titi.
    Peace & blessings Okomfo Agyiriwah

  15. Peace All, I want to say that both Tania and Amensa were very beautiful people. They both had issues with maintaining their Godhood just like the rest of us. Theirs was a relationship that should not have been. But instead of following and humbling themselves to the Word of God, they fell victim to the devastating influence of the animal spirits that dwells within them. Whatever, the dynamics of their relationship entailed, it is quite obvious that Tania was not happy with her life and did not value her life or my brothers. Tania was in so much pain, possibly exasperated by my brother, that she made deliberate plans to take her own life. She wrote a will, left plans for her funeral, left special items to special people in her life and took a gun to Maryland. I don't know if while she was planning to end her life, Tania was also planning to take my brother's. But what pains me the most is how unloved she must have felt. For all of you who consider yourselves her friend, please learn from this tragic event. Please learn to show love to everyone you encounter no matter who they are or the circumstance. As I sat in the courtroom for Tania's trial last week, the reality of the loneliness Tania must have experienced in her life was evident as she had only 2 people there to support her throughout most of the trail, a few more on the last day and only one loved one when the jury found her guilty of first degree murder. Myself and my brother's spirit is at peace with what destiny has brought us, we want only to help those around us to heal from this event and learn from it. My brother's spirit has and will continue to review the lessons he was suppose to learn this lifetime so that he won't make the same tragic mistakes again. Let us all take time everyday to review our own life lessons, uplift and strengthen the God spirit within you and share God's love with all you encounter. Please all be at peace.

    Well put sister. I too have known Tania or "Titi" as she was called by her friends to be going through enormous amount of pain as told to me by Amensa in private. My body feels energies of disappointment from this tragedy and the earthly justice administered by the courts of Maryland to Tania. Despite what she have done I will always love Tania and I hope she works it with the Source and make amends for this unfortunate act. I do forgive her for she knows not what she does.

    As for Amensa (Julius, "Jay", or "Jelani") I'm still mourning his pass into transition. He was one of my sources of In Spirit Action (inspiration). I just wish I could have told him one more time that I love him and how much he inspired me. I will mourn him until I'm join him. As the sister said let us all return to our Source as opposed to our EGO's (Exiting God Out).

  18. It saddens me to inform (For those of you who may or may not know) that Tania was sentenced in the murder of our dear Amensa Shep Teker. She was sentenced to life plus 20 years. This is a very unfortunate and sad days for us. Eventhough justice was served it doesn't bring Amensa back.

  27. Amensa's sister: that was an extremely positive post. You seem like a very grounded person. God Bless. This story is so tragic. I was not there, and I do not know any of the individuals. I really hope justice was served. Either way, life plus 20 years seems a bit harsh under the circumstances. She sounds like she had some mental health issues.

  28. Nobody's judging her. The bottom line is that she murdered this man plain and simple and now she will remain in prison for the rest of her life. End of story. Therefore, let Julius Charles Whaley, Jr. (aka Amensa Shep Teker) rest in peace and let this issue rest in peace as well.

  29. I knew Tania (Ti Ti) since 1989. She was a film student and in the arts.She introduced me to SPIKE LEE at Unity Day 1989 the summer "DO THE RIGHT THING" opened in theaters. I met her through her sister whom I had worked with at a retail clothing store in Phila. I was trying to find here here on line and tell her about my wedding invitation and about my film shoot this fall and I find this mess here. I am shocked and really upset about this. Ti Ti was like a sister to me if she and this man were friends or more than friends then I know that he was a special person. Tania never liked people who were not positive and hardworking. She is the only woman out side of my Mom and Grandma who pushed me to be the best and supported me when no one would. I have male friends who in the middle of the night if needed would get out of bed and help me out of a tight spot but Ti Ti was the only girl I knew who would do this for me. She was a real strong black woman and we could talk about anything. There were some comments made by the deceased's sister that they should have not been a couple,... but there is something strange about that statement that troubles me it suggests some kind of turmoil WAS there that might have sparked this incident and I'm sorry for both families but I believe whatever ignited this violence still, Mr. Whaley must have been a nice person or Ti Ti would not have shared time with him and he with her. I believed that he saw what I saw in her or he would not have been involved with her as well. Sorry to the Whaley family for their loss and also the Bey family. Ti Ti you schooled me many times and scolded me also when I did wrong and I being a U.S. Marine settling back into civilian life, I made many bad choices but if this was me and not you,you would still love me as a brother and let me know that there are consequences for my actions and the result of them must be served a life is gone and there must be restitution. To the mother of Tania whom I visited many times in the past,I love you Momma J and I hope to contact you soon. Momma J you are a strong woman of God thru Christ not this so called Godism crap that helped to spiritually taint Ti Ti's mind and heart I pray for her and all families hurt by these events.
