Remains Found in Arkansas Confirmed To Be Missing 4-Year-Old Maleah Davis

The remains of 4-year-old Maleah Davis have been identified, authorities said Monday.

Located in Arkansas on Friday during a search, the remains now have been positively identified as those of the missing Houston girl, the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences in Texas said.

The cause and manner of her death are still pending, according to the forensic institute.

Maleah was reported missing in early May by her mother’s former fiancé, Derion Vence.

Vence initially told police that Maleah had been abducted by a group of men — but investigators found signs of decay in his car and blood evidence in his apartment.

Earlier Friday, Houston police had said remains found in a bag in southwest Arkansas might belong to Maleah.

Vence was arrested and booked into the Harris County jail in May on suspicion of tampering with a human corpse, according to police.
