Serena Shim was a born and raised citizen American citizen. She was a reporter for Press TV in Lebanon, Iraq and the Ukraine. She died on October 19, 2014.

In October 2014, Shim was sent to Turkey on a mission to cover the ISIL conflict. During her investigations for her job Shim claimed that ISIL fighters were being transported humanitarian aid of World Food Organizations and other NGO's en route from Syria to Turkey, adding she had footage to prove her claim. She also claimed Turkey was helping ISIL. After reporting she had a story forthcoming she was accused of by MIT in Turkey of being a spy. Days later she was involved in a suspIcious accident AFTER being threatened by Turkish intelligence. This petition is important because there is media blackout in the United States over this incident. Also, no independant investigation was conducted by the U.S. over her death. This petition requests that one be done due to the threats given by Turkish intel on Serena's life.

The government have not contacted her family to offer condolences or to present their findings in the death of this American journalist. 

Her family asks for Justice.
