Police Find Remains in Search for Missing 4-Year-Old Maleah Davis

Police have found remains in the search for missing Texas 4-year-old Maleah Davis after the suspect in her disappearance allegedly confessed about where he dumped her body, news station KTAL reports. Hempstead County Sheriff James Singleton said the remains were found in southwest Arkansas, after a “mowing crew found a black garbage bag emitting a foul odor.” The discovery comes after local activist Quanell X said Derion Vence, the suspect and the ex-boyfriend of Davis’ mother, told him he had “dumped [Davis’] body off the road” in Arkansas. According to The Houston Chronicle, Quanell X said he passed along the information to police. Vence, who was meant to be taking care of the toddler while her mother was out of town, initially claimed that he was ambushed on a highway and Davis was abducted.
