#TSRUpdatez: The mother of #MaleahDavis, a 4-year-old girl who was reported as being abducted last week in Houston, is now pointing the finger at her ex-fiance, the child’s stepfather.
At a press conference today, Brittany Bowens and community activist Quanell X alleged that they have video of her ex-fiance, #DarionVence, walking in and out of their apartment with multiple bottles of bleach. He’s reportedly later seen walking out with a garbage bag stuffed into a laundry hamper, according to @fox26houston.
Vence told police last week that he was with Maleah and his 2-year-old son when they were abducted by three men. He claims he was assaulted, but then he and his son were dropped off in the Sugar Land area before the abductors took off with Maleah.
Now he’s being labeled as a person of interest, and police nor Maleah’s family has been able to get in contact with him, according to Bowens. Bowens also claims that she believes Vence “snapped” when she decided not to get back with him after she allegedly caught him sending explicit pictures to other men.
“The fight was about: she had caught him sending naked penis pictures to another man and she confronted him about being gay,” Quanell said.
During the news conference, Quanell, who was speaking on Bowens’ behalf, also claimed that Vence had a history of violence against Maleah. This reportedly included spankings and beating that were too severe for the small child, who also reportedly had special needs.
“He confronted her and threatened her, that ‘She better not do it.’ So she helped him shield the truth of that abuse of Maleah from doctors,” Quanell said about Bowens.
Police announced Thursday that authorities have discovered the car that was stolen from the family in a Missouri City parking lot.
Maleah has now been missing for about a week and we’re only praying and hoping for the best.
Authorities are asking anyone with information on Maleah’s disappearance to call the Houston Police Department immediately at (713) 308-3600.
