Sharneen Norman killed Dec. 1, 2014

Sharneen "Shawn" Norman, 49, was found shot to death in her downtown Dallas apartment. Her father, former Dallas Cowboys player Pettis Norman, said he texted his eldest daughter concerning the family hair care business, and began worrying when she didn't respond. He rquested a health and welfare check from police who found her body. Norman said Shawn, a Howard University graduate, loved to work and made friends easily.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, a family friend, who has led the campaign to stop domestic violence in Dallas, spoke at the funeral.
