A major bombshell development has come forth regarding missing 4-year-old Maleah Davis, who has been reported missing since May 4.
According to community activist Quanell X, 26-year-old Derion Vence, the gentleman who has become the prime suspect in little Maleah’s disappearance, confessed to him during a jailhouse visit that he dumped the body of the little girl on the side of the road in a ditch in Arkansas.
Although Quanell X did not give specific details about the location of the body or how long the body of little Maleah had been in Arkansas, he was adamant that Vence was telling the truth.
“I think it’s the truth. I don’t believe he was lying to me,” said Quanell X. “Many men have confessed these types of crimes to me, many involving children.”
According to Quanell X, Vence told him that little Maleah’s death was a result of an accident, although he did not provide any details what kind of accident caused her death.
“All I know is that he (Vence) told me that he pulled over in Arkansas, got out of the car, walked off the side of the road and dumped her (Maleah’s) body off the side of the road,” said Quanell X.
Quanell X also stated that Vence did not disclose whether Maleah’s mother, Brittany Bowens, knew anything about these disturbing new details surrounding little Maleah’s disappearance.
After receiving this new information from Vence, Quanell X convened a meeting in a parking lot in southwest Houston with investigators and with Texas EquuSearch, who had been searching for little Maleah’s body here in the Greater Houston area since her disappearance.
Quanell X indicated that he has worked with Texas EquuSearch in the past on cases like this and that the group was heading to Arkansas to help find little Maleah’s remains.
Texas EquuSearch founder and director, Tim Miller, believes the new information given to Quanell X by Vence was enough to warrant an immediate search for little Maleah’s remains.
Meanwhile, a roadside mowing crew working along Interstate 30 near Fulton, Arkansas contacted authorities, after discovering a garbage bag with the human remains of a child and blood inside of it. Although authorities were not able to immediately ascertain whether it was little Maleah’s remains or not, the remains are being processed by Arkansas State Police before having them sent off to the Harris County Medical Examiner back in Texas.
This has been a true rollercoaster of emotions for many in the community who have sought answers relative to little Maleah’s disappearance.
During a CPS hearing this week, little Maleah’s biological father, Craig Davis, testified that he spoke with Vence, who refused to allow him to see his daughter the day before she was reported missing, claiming little Maleah had the flu. According to Davis, he and his sister showed up to the apartment where little Maleah lived with Vence and Bowens and asked to see little Maleah, who was allegedly asleep in her room, but Vence refused to allow him to see his daughter.
