Family spokesperson accuses suspect in question of dismembering the toddler
A Houston community activist and spokesperson of a Missing Houston toddler, Meleah Davis, alleges the child was dismembered.
“Many people did not know that he had dismembered this beautiful baby,” community activist Quanell X explained to a local news station. He added, “There was blood spatter evidence around the drainage area of the house”.
Houston police have not corroborated whether Quanell’s statement to KHOU is true.
However, Vence told local officials that three Hispanic men kidnapped Maleah Davis. After the initial interview, a spokesperson for Sugar Land police, Doug Adolph, stated Vence’s story did not “add up”. Police charged Vence with suspicion of tampering with evidence, a human corpse. Consequently, he’s now in custody.
According to the prosecution, cadaver dogs detected human decomposition inside the trunk of a car. Apparently, Vence stole the car.
“Both of the dogs reacted to the trunk of the silver Nissan that the defendant had driven and that the blue laundry basket was recovered from, indicating that the dogs were responding to the scent of human decomposition in the vehicle,” Houston Prosecutor Pat Stayton confirms.
Vence Breaks Down
Family rep Quanell X alleges Brittany Bowens, mother of the missing Houston toddler, Meleah Davis, ended the relationship with Vence.
First, Bowens says she discovered that Vence allegedly texted photos of his penis to another man. Next, Bowens leaves Texas for Massachusetts to attend a funeral. While in Massachusetts, Bowens cut off communications with Vence.
Quannell says the lack of communication this angered Vence deeply. Furthermore, she alleges it led Vence to have a psychological breakdown.
“When that happened, I believe that he psychologically snapped… He did this to hurt the mother in a way that she would never recover,” Quanell said.
Authorities set Vence’s bond at $1 million dollars. At present, officials have detained in the Harris County Jail. He’s scheduled to face a local judge on Monday.
