Rest In Peace Shaniya Davis (Monday, November 16, 2009)
SANFORD, N.C. (AP) — Authorities in North Carolina say they have found the body of a 5-year-old girl who disappeared a week ago.
Fayetteville Police spokeswoman Theresa Chance told The Associated Press on Monday that searchers found the body of Shaniya Davis off a road southeast of Sanford in the central part of the state.
Two people have been charged in Shaniya's disappearance, including her 25-year-old mother, Antoinette Davis. Police have charged Davis with human trafficking and felony child abuse, saying Shaniya was offered for prostitution. Davis is due in court Monday afternoon.
Authorities have also charged 29-year old Mario Andrette McNeill, who was seen in surveillance footage carrying Shaniya at a Sanford hotel.
Shaniya's mother reported her missing last Tuesday.
Rest In Peace little sweetheart. It breaks my heart that this little angel had to suffer while she was here in this world :-( I'm also BOILING MAD that she had to suffer!!! This INNOCENT child deserved to be just that...a CHILD!!!! She did NOT ask to be brought into this world!!! And she certaintly did NOT deserve to suffer the way she did! Can you imagine the FEAR this poor sweet child went through?!!!!? And imagine the hurt and confusion she went through knowing that her own mother did this to her (don't take that as I'm saying that she killed her. I don't know whether she did or not). I'm talking about the other stuff. Well I could go on and on about this but I won't. I don't want this to get ugly. R.I.P. Sweetie
