    I could not find a thread anywhere for this child (suffocated in 1976 in Ocilla, Georgia) so starting one here.

    It seems new leads have come in since the case was reopened in recent years and more are being sought:

    It's always encouraging to see these old cases re-opened. After nearly 40 years there's still hope her mom will see justice for her little girl's murder. Wouldn't that be wonderful.

    Yes, it would, bessie.

    At the link below are pictures and video of her mom at the site where Faleshia's body was found and at her gravesite, as well as some additional info. Seems her mom has lived under a cloud of suspicion from some through the years.
