  • Details of Disappearance
    On November 3, 2008, Nadia Kersh left her job at the Tria Market for lunch at 1:00 p.m. and never returned. Friends and family became concerned when she still hadn't returned to pick up her young son.

    Her car was found on November 4 in West Birmingham, leading police to become more concerned about Nadia's welfare. Three days later, her purse was found discarded on railroad tracks, also in West Birmingham.

    There has been no financial activities made to her checking accounts. A legitimate source claims to have seen Kersh's vehicle being driven by two men on the day of her disappearance.

    Joacquas Haywood, 27, was jailed in May 2010 and later indicted with capital murder in the death of Nadia Kersh. A Jefferson County judge granted a prosecution request in 2011 to dismiss the capital murder charge against Joacquas Haywood, and ordered him released after 15 months in jail awaiting trial. He criticized the prosecution for its lack of evidence that Haywood intentionally killed Kersh in 2008 during a burglary. Prosecutors have the right to refile the capital charge against Haywood if more evidence surfaces. Her body has never been found.
