An initial hearing in the case of the teen’s murder was held for an Indianapolis man who has been arrested for the murder of Gregory Johnson and his friend Brandie Coleman. According to the hearing, the gun belonging to Paul Anthony Moore, 20, was matched to the bullets that killed the two teens.
See my previous post on Nireah Johnson.
It appears that Nireah Johnson is buried in Crown Hill Cemetery in section 73, lot 509 under the name “GREGORY M. JOHNSON”
Brandie Michelle Coleman, 18, Indianapolis, died July 23, 2003. She was born March 29, 1985. She was a considerate, kindhearted, and very happy person. She was also a good singer. Brandie was a new mother. She formerly attended Northwest High School and was attending Goodwill Industries where she was working on her GED. Brandie was a member of the Church of the Living God Temple #2. Brandie was preceded in death by her father, Walter “Duke” Coleman; and grandmother, Alice Coleman. Brandie will be greatly missed by her 2 month old daughter, Brakayla; mother, Mary Ann Coleman; grandparents, George (Barbara) Coleman and Carl & Ruth Wildman; sisters Robyn Foisy and Jennifer Coleman; brother, Jason Coleman; and a host of other relatives and friends. Visitation will be from 10 to 11 a.m. Tue., July 29 at Stuart Mortuary immediately followed by Interment: New Crown Cemetery. Brandie’s death was tragic loss and during this difficult time we are leaning to The Lord Jesus for the strength that we know only he can give.
