    Autopsy Results

    Just saw on HLN that the autopsy results are in and Neveah suffocated after inhaling dirt.
    The news says this means she was either buried alive or her face was pressed forcibly into the dirt.

    Here's a link to an ABC story about it.

    Awwwww. Dammit! GRRRRRRR!

    Autopsy results showed Neveah Buchanan suffocated after inhaling dirt, according to the Associated Press, leaving investigators to believe she was still breathing when she was put into the crude grave along the banks of the River Raisin or her face was forcibly held in the dirt.

    I find it odd they don't mention any signs of sexual assault. I know it doesn't mean it didn't happen, but I would really have expected it to be released with the autopsy results to confirm or deny it.

    As many cases as you follow it never fails to disturb you to the core when you hear about cause of death. I'm actually afraid of a day when it doesn't disturb me.

    Poor baby. This should never have happened to Naveah.

    Or any of them for that matter.

    I dont think they are releasing the full report yet, they may not have everything in just yet. I dont know if most people will be able to handle it. What we know already made me ill reading of it yesterday.

    I am so sorry Nevaeh that this happened to you, may you RIP little one and get swift justice.

    The grave was reportedly very shallow. I think poor little Neveah must have been held there until she died otherwise, unless she was very weak at that point, she could probably have managed to crawl out. What an awful thing.

    Buried alive makes the time to commit this crime pretty short, shorter than we had guessed. Remember how the timeline (or, that is, the time reports by various people) kept creeping forward just a bit at a time?

    Oh gods that is so horrifying.

    Some other elements hat have leaked out or been released regarding the forensics.

    Dirt found in her throat and lungs. She died from asphyxiation, most likely in that grave.

    Carpet fibers found under her fingernails. Think about what it would take to have that happen. This isn't something you find normally. The poor child would have had to be clawing at the carpet somewhere. So there is at least one other crime scene involved. Also telling is that they are taking carpet samples from her residence and the surrounding apartments. This means the fibers they found are probably more indicative of residential carpeting, then say the carpeting used in vehicles.

    I'm not sure how true this one is, but there is a report, supposedly from one of her relatives, that LE indicated she had been found undressed with her clothing beneath her.

    It still blows my mind how many predators and sex offenders his poor girl seemed to have contact with in her short tragic life.

    I used to have under my hat (christine2448) WS has changed the way I walk in this world (until posters complained I wasn't identifying myself as a moderator, so I went back)...but it has. It's HORRIFYING to know what is ALL AROUND US, EVERYDAY, ALL DAY...I hadn't a clue until I joined WS. Thank God, I now see the light and am able to protect me, mine, and others we can make aware. It's a VERY scary world we live in.

    I have always known what a scary world we live in, not a psychic, not anywhere close, just a sense of these things. WS has in fact enlightened me to how harsh and severe it really is and not just my over active imagination/fear.
    Bless Nevaeh's heart. I do know she is wrapped in the arms of love now and knows nothing but peace and I will take comfort in that.
    As for the people responsible for her torturous and horrifying death, justice can not come swiftly and harshly enough.

    I can not even bring myself to imagine those last horrific breaths, I pray whoever did this is identified and convicted before they can harm another precious child.

    If they are taking carpet samples from the apartments in the complex where she lived, it is possible that those fibers came from her own home or the upstairs friend and were under her nails as a result of playing on the floor.

    No sexual assault, no visible injuries, nude, suffocated by dirt and carpet fibers under her nails. What does this tell us?

    I know anything is possible, but don't SO's usually kidnap to rape their victims?

    Could this dirt be potting soil from an indoor plant?

    It tells me the perp could not complete the act for whatever reason. JMO. I pray she was unconscious when she suffocated so that her terror was lessened. Clearly something happened while she was conscious that caused her to put up a sufficient fuss that she was clawing at carpet-are we sure it was not inside of a vehicle?

    Maybe forensics wants to see if the carpet fibers under her nails matches the carpet in the apartments...once ruled out, they can look at fiber from different cars, motel carpet, suspects homes etc. Same with the dirt! forensics can analyze the chemicals to see if it's potted, dirt along the river, or from elsewhere. Maybe they can't tell if a sexual assault occurred or don't want to release the info. YET!

    Sounds to me like the perp just couldn't handle little Nevaeh. Had to go to extremes to silence her. I bet little Nevaeh fought like **** Hope with all my heart they nail this perp!!!!!
