Salome Jackson returned for a third season on the VH1 reality Tv series Cartel Crew. She is in the main roles along with Nicole Zavale, Michael Zavala, Michael Blanco, Stephanie Acevedo, Kat “Tatu Baby” Flores, Ali Cabrera Tapai, Eddie Soto, Carlos “Loz” Oliveros, and Mike “Majix” Yuen.
As Jackson returned for the show, she was also seen grieving following her sibling sister Giselle “Gigi” Rengifo. Her sister was shot to death at a party on 18th May 2021 in Miami. Police identified the shooter as Michael McGowan.
Salome is calling for justice for her sister’s death.
Salome Sister Gigi
Salome, a.k.a. Betty idol’s 17-year-old sister, was shot to death in Miami’s Little Havana neighborhood. After her death, the hashtag #JusticeForGiGi was inspired by family and friends.
The identified shooter Michael McGowan was charged with manslaughter after he was arrested the next day.
However, he was released from jail two weeks after he pleaded not guilty to a felony count of manslaughter.
On the other hand, Salome said her sister’s death was not an accident and stated no justice in Miami. In an interview, she also referred to a video and said McGowan clearly showed off a gun with a bullet in the chamber before the party.
Salome has demanded a trial by jury, and on her Instagram, she wrote,
Every day is literally a FIGHT, and we won’t let up until OUR VOICES ARE HEARD! They can watch and hate, but my family is my EVERYTHING! We CRY, and yes, this emptiness that we have in our hearts will never be filled bc this man decided to take one of ours. But being quiet and scared to fight the system, the same system that we as children were taught to protect, will never happen. We want JUSTICE!
Salome, her family, friends, loved ones, and fans are fighting for Gigi’s justice using the hashtag #Justice4Gigi.
The petition was filed by a Change.org.petition, which gained nearly 40K signatures. The petition says,
On May 18th, 2020, at approximately 8:28 pm, a 17-year-old girl named Giselle Rengifo was murdered by a gunshot wound to the head and found in the prone position. The person who shot her is named Michael McGowan. He is being charged with “manslaughter” and is currently on “house arrest without bail” after only serving 2 weeks of jail time. All 4 people with Giselle at an air BnB where this took place said it was an accident, but there is video evidence and screenshots of the killer's intentions and how he was fully aware of what he was doing. We need justice for Giselle Rengifo now. This killer cannot just get away with murder. To put this in perspective, Giselle is dark skin, and due to this, we all know if she were a white girl or a different ethnicity, they would not let the person who did this walk free. This boy needs to be put in jail and charged correctly. This sweet 17-year-old girl was taken from her family overnight, and the person who did this has to be held accountable. The Miami Police Department is ignoring all of the evidence. We need Justice for Giselle. This is unacceptable and another example of the corrupt system that claims to be protecting us.
