    I haven’t looked up the area she was found. Is there a bridge over water? Is it possible he could have just tossed her from the bridge and hoped she washed away? :(

    I agree, but I don't for one minute think that there is anything resembling "normal" about the person or people involved in her death. Makes no sense making an accident look like a murder (think about Caylee Anthony case). I don't think there was an accident, I was just giving input for any explanation concerning the relevance of the dressers.

    Yes, there is a bridge.

    You are a better person than I am. I can find no sympathy for a man who tosses a toddler's body into a creek then watches while people search for her.

    Warning signs were there. They were ignored.

    Yeah. My guess is he "admitted" to some kind of accident that wasn't intentional. They would have wanted to find her before any murder charge
    because the speedy trial clock starts ticking immediately when a person is charged.

    And if his charge was negligent homicide or manslaughter or whatever similar charge they have in NC, based on his story, and they didn't find her, and then he pled guilty, but later someone found the body and there was a gun shot wound in the head or something like repeated, multiple broken bones that indicated more than negligence. Too late. Double jeopardy.

    I feel like if the mother had any part, she would have been charged with something.

    It's early. I'm betting within 24 hours.

    They are still investigating. There may be charges in the future, time will tell.

    Hi this is the first time I've posted something on this site. I've been following this case since it was reported and just had a thought. The boyfriend had mom's other children with him during thanksgiving. Is it possible he took them with him as collateral of sorts? Could he have threatened her with their lives if she went to the cops?

    Eta: it would be an explanation as to why she wasn't with them for the holiday

    New boyfriend, who likely brutally murdered her, hasn't been charged with anything more serious than disposal of a corpse, in connection with her death. So why would mom be charged before him?

    Has anyone seen a photo of Mariah with a smile on her face? I can’t find a single one and it’s really eating away at me. I’m sure you know why.

    Though it is deeply tragic for all touched by this up close, Mariah's brothers losing their sister like this, their loss seems deepest. I hope whatever justice comes serves them best.

    He's a one in a million creep, as the bail confirms, which leaves a lot of guys like him out there.

    Charges can come at any time during the investigation as more facts are known. Already, IMO, someone has talked to LE about the location of the body.

    If the BF is not the one who caused harm to Mariah but did the disposal only, he may decide to roll over on the responsible party in order to help himself.

    First one to talk is more likely to get a deal.

    Exactly.
    The LE need to get all their ducks in a row before they can pursue murder charges.

    OT: you live in my favorite city :)

    I think a lesser charge, like child endangerment, will be filed against the mother eventually, just like in that case recently where the 3 year old was supposedly left alone as punishment for not drinking milk.

    Yep.
    Just like in Sherin Mathews case.
    Her mom was charged some time after her dad was.
    At first she was not a suspect in her daughter's death, but as more evidence came to light, that changed.

    Maybe lesser charges because the 'long talk' led to the discovery of the body.

    Yes, tonight I am thinking of the boys. Bless them in the loss of their little sister, and may they never have to walk on eggshells around anyone again in all their lives.

    I'm wondering if the boys knew something was wrong. They may have been threatened with harm to themselves/each other/their mother to keep quiet by the monster.
