    Another article on the upcoming vigil for Mariha's unsolved case.

    Mariha's family will hold a candlelight vigil 3 p.m. Oct. 7, giving the family time to post fliers around the neighborhood, Smith said.
    The group will march from the house where she was found to the house from which she went missing on the 3800 block of Burlingame.

    Bumping for Mariha. I thought at least one media outlet would have covered the vigil which was supposed to be held last friday, but I am not seeing any coverage.

    We haven't forgotten you, Mariha. Still praying for the justice you so deserve.

    A vigil is planned for 6 p.m. in honor of Mariha Smith, a 5-year-old whose body was found burned in an abandoned Detroit house in July after she disappeared from a nearby home.

    So glad to see Mariha's name mentioned in MSM. Praying these vigils lead to more tips and answers to solve both Mariha and Bianca's cases.

    Smith's family is coping after the her body was found in a vacant home in Detroit last July. She had been raped, beaten and strangled. Then her body was burned in an attempt to hide the evidence.

    http://www.clickondetroit.com/news/C...z/-/index.html


    Raped? Why do I not recall previously seeing/reading she had been raped? Anyone else recall other MSM indicating Mariha had been raped or is the above article inaccurate?


    ...And if she was raped, wouldn't the aunt Q's bf's dna have been found even if she had been burnt? And is aunt Q still with this guy? Has he abused any of her children?

    If it was DC who bought the 41 cents worth of gas, how has he not been charged with anything other than the probation violation?

    Lot's of questions why the POI was jailed for a violation of probation (probation violation related to marijuana) and no movement has happened on this case since.

    Detroit, what is happening? Please please please tell me Mariha has not been forgotten. This beautiful little girl deserves justice.

    Mariha has not been forgotten, not by her Daddy anyway. If only she had been given a chance to live with him.

    Mariha being murdered the DAY the paternity results come in... that is one HUGE coincidence if you ask me.


    http://www.detroitnews.com/article/2...ts-Detroit-dad

    Curtis Miller Jr. had seen a photograph of the 5-year-old girl who was his spitting image, so when the results of a paternity test came back naming him as the father, he wasn't surprised.

    But the same day Miller learned he had a daughter, July 24, 2011, the good news was overshadowed by a shocking development:
    The little girl he'd never met, Mariha Smith, was missing from her west-side home.

    ----------------------

    Miller, a car detailer, said he first found out about Mariha in early July 2011, when a Friend of the Court employee delivered the news.
    "She showed me a picture and I knew right away it was my daughter, because she looked just like me," Miller said.
    "They told me I had to take a blood test to be 100 percent sure. So a week or two went by, and (the results) came back that she was my daughter.
    I was looking forward to seeing her, but then everything happened."

    This case is still unsolved, huh? No one held responsible for little Mariha's murder.

    Mother's boyfriend charged in assault, death of 5-year-old

    Boyfriend of mother charged in 2011 assault, death of 5-year-old Mariha Smith

    Charred body of Mariha Smith found in abandoned Detroit home July 24 2011

    DETROIT -
    A suspect has been charged in the death of a missing Detroit girl whose body was found burned in a vacant house hours before her mother noticed her missing.

    Monday Wayne County Prosecutor Kym L. Worthy charged Darnell H. Cheatham, age 22, in connection to 5-year-old Mariah Smith's death. Cheatham is the boyfriend of Mariha's mother Konesha Smith...

    Fox News are saying he is the boyfriend of Mariha's aunt, not the mother.

    It wasn't immediately known if Cheatham has a lawyer.

    Prosecutors say Cheatham was the boyfriend of Mariah's aunt.
    Back in 2011 it was reported:
    Dominique Poole, the child's aunt, told ABCNews.com she thought her sister's boyfriend, Darnell Cheatham was acting suspicious the day the 5-year-old vanished.

    "I knew it had to be someone that was at the house that did it," Poole said.

    Another one of the child's aunts and her boyfriend were already questioned by police earlier in the investigation, according to Poole. Several relatives had expressed anger with the two, Quanita Smith and Darnell Cheatham, because they claim they were not being truthful with police and allegedly failed a lie detector test administered by police.

    So pleased that the police have charged him, hopefully they will have a load of evidence to ensure he is found guilty. Does Michigan have the death penalty?

    I'm first reading about this arrest now. the second have of 2013 was incredibly busy... glad to have time to start catching up again.

    Aunt says boyfriend was in bed with girl, 5, before she was found sexually assaulted, burned

    http://www.freep.com/article/2013111...ssault-Detroit




    She was in the bed with him while he was sexually assaulting her 5 year old neice on the other side of the bed.

    much more at above article. Warning - you will be furious when you read what Aunt Quanita knew and did not share with police until a month before the arrest, and shared only after she was locked up.


    Sadly, Michigan does not have the death penalty. Though with Cheatham's young age, he could easily spend a half century behind bars and if he's in the gp it will be a very tough existance for him.

    This article has made me so mad. I hate women that are so desperate for a man that they will put him first. Anyone that sits, or lays in this case, by and allows abuse, is just as bad as the molester. Her own aunt who's supposed to protect her. I could shoot her right between the eyes. I Hope she faces charges on this.....or did she plea bargain?

    I'm not seeing any criminal court cases for Aunt Quanita in the previous link to the online court records.

    My quess is she was not charged in Mariha's case and is probably going to be a ? cooperative witness. At least that was my impression based on the msm article.

    Jury selection is scheduled to begin this morning in the trial of a Detroit man accused of murdering 5-year-old Mariha Smith nearly three years ago.

    He was charged with first-degree murder, felony murder, arson, torture, first-degree child abuse and disinterment and mutilation of a body.
