PETITION FOR RELEASE OF SHERIN MATHEWS’ BODY AND PROPOSED INTERFAITH MEMORIAL SERVICE


Our Community Will Actively Support Law Enforcement and Be Sherin Mathews’ Voice Until the Truth is Found

Sherin Mathews was born to Hindu parents in India and thereafter adopted by a Texas couple of Christian faith. Sherin went missing for days and after an exhaustive search, Sherin Mathews’ body was discovered in Richardson, Texas on October 22, 2017. To honor Sherin and to provide her with the respect and dignity she deserves, our community is requesting that we be allowed to hold Sherin Mathews’ memorial service in Texas in accordance with an interfaith memorial and burial.

In order to accomplish this, our community petitions and requests that the Indian consulate, Texas Child Protection Services, the Richardson Police Department and any other relevant governmental agencies work together to provide Sherin her last rites and allow us to celebrate Sherin’s life and provide her this last honor in her adoptive country.

Due to the circumstances surrounding Sherin’s death and allegations against her adoptive father, we propose that: (1) The body of Sherin Mathews not be released to Sherin’s adoptive parents (Mr. & Mrs. Wesley Mathew) and (2) As the voices of the community working along with relatives and/or next of kin for a public memorial service and (3) The honorable Reverend Dr. Thomas Abalavelil, a community leader and advocate, be allowed to conduct the Interfaith memorial service and burial along side other interfaith and community leaders.

On behalf of the Community,
