5 Year Old Found Dead

November 17, 2009 by USA Post 

The body of Shaniya Davis, the 5-year-old little girl who had been missing since last Tuesday, was found on Monday, November 16.

Shaniya’s body was found southeast of Sanford in central North Carolina. Her mother, Antoinette Davis, has already been charged with human trafficking and felony child abuse. Davis had offered her daughter for prostitution.

According to a new report by the Associated Press issued earlier on November 16 authorities searched for the girl’s body that they at first thought might be found alive.

Shaniya Davis had been missing since Tuesday, November 10, and the most recent search took place earlier on November 16, according to Fayetteville, North Carolina police.

Another person who has been charged with kidnapping in this case is Mario Andrette McNeil, 29, who was seen carrying Shaniya in a hotel’s surveillance camera.

Police have not stated whether or not Davis and McNeil know each other, and said that Davis doesn’t yet have an attorney.

Syd Severe of Raleigh was one of the many volunteers who helped in the search for Shaniya. He told reporters that he didn’t believe in the death penalty, but those responsible for Shaniya’s death deserved it.

Shaniya’s father, Bradley Lockhart, had raised the little girl for several years but decided last month to allow her to go live with her mother.
