UPDATE: The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences has positively identified the remains found in Arkansas as those of Maleah Davis. Her cause and manner of death are pending.
Davis’ remains were discovered on Friday in Arkansas, hours after Quanell X made a bombshell announcement on Friday (May 31) that Derion Vence, Davis’ stepfather revealed to him where her body was located and that her death was an accident.
The 4-year-old was reported missing on April 30.
ORIGINAL STORY (May 31): In a shocking and chilling revelation, Quanell X says he spoke to Derion Vence, the stepfather of missing 4-year-old Maleah Davis. X told investigators into the girl’s now month-long disappearance that Vence confessed that Davis is dead and that her death was an “accident.”
Speaking to reporters alongside Texas Equusearch founder Tim Miller, X says he visited Vence in jail where Vence expressed how he felt he was being mistreated in the media about the case. Vence then told him that Davis’ body was dumped on the side of the road in Arkansas.
Miller says he and his team are heading to Arkansas now.
Earlier this week, X revealed that he was no longer working with the girl’s mother because she was not being truthful in the child’s disappearance.
