    Nevaeh's mom: 'I'm completely innocent'


    In a cramped apartment, a portrait of a little girl is propped up on an old TV set, framed by candles.

    It is a darling picture, taken at preschool.

    Jennifer Buchanan faces the makeshift memorial, saying she can't imagine why anyone would have taken Nevaeh Buchanan, her 5-year-old daughter.

    She begins to tell the story of the final moments when, she says, she thought Nevaeh went off to play with a friend.

    And then was gone.

    It's a story Buchanan has not told in so much detail before. And it's a story investigators are still scrutinizing.

    Burial site, vigil draw mourners to pay tribute to Nevaeh Buchanan

    Tributes for victim left near river



    DUNDEE, Mich. - Sharla Patterson took her children to a spot along the River Raisin - the place where 5-year-old Nevaeh Buchanan is believed to have been buried - because she was heartsick about the murdered child.

    She also wanted to send a message to her four children, ages 7 through 13, about the danger of talking to strangers.

    Nevaeh's family awaits autopsy; 'persons of interest' moved to Jackson


    Monroe -- With no fingerprints or dental x-rays available, the family of 5-year-old Nevaeh Buchanan will have to wait, perhaps several weeks, before a girl's body found near the River Raisin is positively identified.

    Wayne County Medical Examiner Carl Schmidt said the findings of the death remain pending and could take weeks before results come in. Tissue samples were sent for special testing.

    The delay is difficult, to say the least, family members said today.

    I just hope nobody else has to go through this again," said Nevaeh's grandmother and legal guardian, Sherry Buchanan.

    Meanwhile, two persons of interest in the 5-year-old Nevaeh Buchanan case arrested on possible parole violations have been moved to a state prison in Jackson.

    Priest, flock pray for the family of Nevaeh - and the perpetrator

    MONROE - Prayers for the safe recovery of 5-year-old Nevaeh Buchanan changed yesterday to prayers for the recovery of her family and friends from the grief that surrounds the child's disappearance and apparent homicide.

    At St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, 511 South Monroe St., the Rev. Jack Quinlan said that in the view of the Catholic Church, Nevaeh is in heaven and is in no need of human prayers.

    Latest Developments in Nevaeh case,
    last modified June 08. 2009 11:57AM


    Autopsy results on Nevaeh Buchanan were not yet completed this morning and investigators continue to follow more than 1,000 tips that they hope will lead to the person responsible for her death.

    Monroe County Sheriff Tilman Crutchfield said results from the Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office have not been received. He added that analysis results of the evidence recovered at the gravesite also are pending.

    This weekend Sheriff Crutchfield said he expects that the killer is a local person because of the rural location where the body of the Monroe girl was found.

    Nevaeh's mom says she has not given up hope

    .........................snip..................... .....

    Nevaeh's mother Jennifer Buchanan, who no longer wants her face shown on TV, told a Detroit TV station she is still hoping its not her daughter. "I still have hope. There is no indefinite, like, confirmation, as to if it is her or not. Some one could have took her. Somebody... I'm completely clueless, I don't know as to who, I don't want to point fingers at anyone."

    Tearful supporters visit grave site
    Though identity of body hasn't been confirmed, community unites in mourning


    Barb Rothman put her arms around her husband and her chin on his shoulder as the two stood just feet from the little girl's crude waterside grave.

    The Dundee Township couple had carefully made their way down the slippery, steep hillside leading to the spot -- one they had been to before on happier occasions, to fish.

    "We had a son killed ourselves," Fritz Rothman said as his wife's eyes welled with tears. "We know what it's like to lose a child. It's a shame it had to come to this."

    Nevaeh memorial signs reflect anger

    The makeshift memorial outside 5-year-old Nevaeh Buchanan's apartment has grown since the discovery of a little girl's body Thursday -- and the message has turned political.

    "Capital punishment," read signs taped to the tent that protects dozens of stuffed animals, cards, balloons and candles near Nevaeh's front door.


    "Majority of this country has it, Michigan needs to have it and they should start with the person(s) responsible for this tragic loss.


    "Why should this person be allowed to live?" the flyers conclude.

    Author speaks about dealing with a child’s death

    John W. James began exploring grief and writing about recovery from immense loss not out of intellectual pursuit but because of a broken heart.

    The discovery of a little girl’s body this week has broken metro Detroit’s heart, too.


    The exhuming of what is thought to be 5-year-old Nevaeh Buchanan’s body from the banks of the River Raisin has affected the emotions of her family and the thousands of people who helped search for her, donated money to¬ward finding her and prayed for her return.


    James, 65, whose 3-day-old son died three decades ago from improper lung development, was driven from working through his own grief process to founding the Grief Recovery Institute and coauthoring “The Grief Recovery Handbook.” A 20th Anniversary edition was published this spring. James spoke from his California office Thursday afternoon about dealing with a child’s death, comforting those who hurt the most and a communal sense of loss.

    Hunt for a killer
    Possible suspects may be off the list


    In the rush for answers after Nevaeh Buchanan's disappearance, Monroe County sheriff's officials floated several names of possible suspects -- men with sexual assault convictions.

    But on Friday, the day that Sheriff Tilman Crutchfield confirmed that a body found Thursday likely belonged to the missing 5-year-old, none of those names was mentioned.

    "Task force investigators have continued to follow up on tips and leads," Crutchfield said. "We've received approximately 1,000 tips since the task force was formed."

    A city's grief
    Monroe residents feel loss, disbelief
    Some hold out hope body isn't Nevaeh


    Any mention of the name Nevaeh around this sleepy community Friday caused eyes to well, hands to wring and heads to fall.

    Even after officials confirmed that a body found Thursday was the same age, height and gender as Nevaeh Buchanan, Monroe residents -- and the missing 5-year-old's family -- did not want to believe she could be gone forever.

    "I'm just hoping and praying that she's still alive out there," the girl's father, Shane Hinjosa, said Friday afternoon.

    Residents described their emotions in mostly one-word answers: Heartbroken. Sad. Disappointed. Angry.

    Monroe tragedy nothing new for town
    Plane crash, deadly wreck mark its past


    RAISINVILLE TOWNSHIP -- Some residents of this largely rural Monroe County community wonder if the quiet little community known for its farming is a magnet for bad news.

    It was Jan. 9, 1997, when twin-engine Comair turboprop plane Flight 3272 en route from Cincinnati to Detroit Metro Airport crashed into a field off of Dixon Road, killing 29. Now, just minutes up the road, investigators are examining a site where a child's body ..............

    DNA test makes a positive ID: It's Nevaeh's body

    Michigan State Police have identified the remains of the little girl found Thursday in a shallow grave in Raisinville Township as 5-year-old Nevaeh Buchanan, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office announced today.
    Advertisement

    The police's Northville crime lab used DNA to verify that the remains were indeed those of Nevaeh, who disappeared May 24 from outside of her Monroe apartment complex.

    The announcement ends five days of speculation, during which law-enforcement agents and Nevaeh's family acknowledged they were looking for the girl's killer, while at the same time holding out hope that the remains proved to be someone else.

    Officials still haven't released the cause of death in the case, which has generated national attention and prompted the Michigan Department of Corrections to send two convicted sex offenders back to prison for violating their paroles by being friends with Nevaeh's mother, Jennifer Buchanan.
