Authorities said last Friday that a bag found on the side of the road in Arkansas contained the remains of a child. It is now confirmed to be Maleah Davis.
Houston-based activist Quanell X said Derion Vence, Maleah’s stepfather, allegedly confessed to dumping her body on the side of the road.
Derion Vence, the stepfather of Maleah Davis, is being held on $1 million bond on the count of "tampering with evidence, namely a corpse."
Authorities say that Maleah Davis' stepfather, who was the last adult to see her, changed his story several times and has stopped responding to calls.
