HOUSTON (AP) — The remains of a child found in Arkansas last week are those of a missing 4-year-old Texas girl, Maleah Davis, a medical examiner said Monday.

The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences said it had positively identified the remains, which were flown to Texas from Arkansas, where they had been found near a freeway outside the town of Hope.

Derion Vence, the man who had been arrested in connection with Maleah’s disappearance, told a community activist he had disposed of her body there.

The institute of forensic sciences says the cause and manner of her death are not yet determined.

Vence, the ex-fiance of Maleah’s mother, remains jailed on a charge of tampering with evidence.

Vence, 27, had claimed he, Maleah and his 2-year-old son were abducted on May 4 by a group of men in a truck. He said he and his son were freed the next day but the kidnappers kept Maleah and his silver Nissan Altima. Police said Vence’s story kept changing and didn’t add up.

Police arrested Vence and charged him with tampering with evidence, specifically a human corpse. He remains jailed on a $40,000 bond.

    BP, why don’t you take your ignorant, incest-bred, trailer trash ass somewhere and crawl back under the rock from where you came. Some WOMEN, period, of any ethnic group out of foolish desperation for a man make illogical, unreasonable and non-rational decisions. The response on another thread talked about a drunken, bar-trashed white women taking a man home from the bar talking about this was the love of her life (after knowing him for 5 hours). She had three daughters at home. He quickly walked away from that one stating, “a woman that would do that certainly is not the woman for him.” So stop with your dumb sh##. You make yourself sound no better than them. Actually, you probably are not!!!!!
