A little more than a week ago, the man who was watching 4-year-old Maleah Davis told police he, the young girl and her brother were abducted by three Hispanic men who knocked him unconscious.
When he awoke on the side of a road after nearly 24 hours, he said the young girl wasn’t there.
.Maleah, four, was seen on surveillance cameras walking behind Derion Vence into their family apartment on April 30.
She was never seen again. On May 3, Vence emerged carrying a laundry basket with a large black trash bag inside.
On the same day, he claimed they were kidnapped in their car along with his one-year-old son, a farfetched story that has been picked apart by police.
Vence, 26, is in custody on charges of tampering with a corpse but Maleah’s body has not been found and he is yet to be charged with her murder.
He is due back in court on Monday.
Maleah’s mother has meanwhile claimed that Vence, 26, ‘snapped’ and attacked Maleah in a rage after she broke off their engagement and accused him of being gay.
