Body of Shaniya Davis Found

November 16, 2009

Sad news out of North Carolina today as police have found the body of 5 year old Shaniya Davis.

It has been reported that Mario McNeill confessed to taking the 5-year-old. Police arrested  Shaniya’s mother, Antoinette Davis, over the weekend. She has been accused of human trafficking, prostitution and felony child abuse.

Yet another tragedy surrounding a young child who has died way too soon.

From ABC News:

The child’s remains were located in an area bordered by Highway 87 south and Walker Road – just south of Sanford – during a second day of searching.

Davis was last seen alive at a Comfort Suites hotel in Sanford last week – the same morning her mother reported her missing from her Fayetteville home. Police say a surveillance video from the hotel showed the child with 29-year-old Mario McNeill.

The area where police found the body is about 7 miles from the hotel.
