    The last thread had many off topic posts that needed to be cleaned up. The thread is about Maleah and only Maleah. Do not bring personal stories or anecdotes into the discussion or post about other cases/missing children.

    Updated 5:10 pm CDT, Friday, May 10, 2019

    The mother of missing 4-year-old Maleah Davis is blaming her common-law husband for the girl’s disappearance, alleging he might have retaliated after a fight and accusing him of past abuse.

    Community activist Quanell X dropped the accusations on Friday, speaking on behalf of Maleah’s mother Brittany Bowens. He said Bowens has seen a surveillance video that apparently shows the girl’s stepfather walking out of his apartment with bleach, a laundry container and a black bag she believes contained the girl’s body.

    “There’s a lot that hasn’t come out, that’s for sure,” he said Friday. “It’s just a sad story.”

    Houston Police Department officials declined to comment on what evidence they might have, or corroborate whether Bowens was meeting with HPD officers Friday to discuss the video, which a neighbor apparently caught from their home.

    “We’re not confirming anything at this point,” police spokesman Victor Senties said.
    [...]

    In the video, Vence was seen the morning after Bowens went to Massachusetts for her father’s funeral carrying two bottles of bleach, a large laundry container and a black bag stuffed inside, Quanell X said.

    Bowens believes that Maleah’s disappearance was triggered by a confrontation she had with Vence the day before her trip, Quanell X said. She asked Vence about nude photos he allegedly sent to another person, and he “snapped.”


    He took it out on Maleah, possibly because of indications that he physically and sexually abused the girl, who has special needs, Quanell X said. She described severe bruising on the little girl’s leg on at least one occasion, as well as suspicions she had been molested.

    “It was out of fear and out of being threatened by Mr. Darion that she covered up physical abuse of Maleah that the stepfather was doing,” the activist said. “For some reason, she was unwilling to tell everything she knew about him. And I think the mother has a twisted love for the man.”

    Mom of missing four-year-old Maleah Davis claims her father was 'abusive' | Daily Mail Online

    I'm so glad this case is getting the nationwide attention and coverage it deserves.

    That makes it less likely that those covering for POI DV will continue protecting him.

    He's going to be ratted out soon enough since he's laying low, and someone probably knows where he is.

    He may come forward himself because he knows the game is up, but cowardly monsters who abuse and kill children usually hide until they're caught. :mad:

    And as for the person who was meant to protect her from harm...I have no words.:mad::mad::mad:

    Bowens reportedly broke off the couple's engagement.

    "She told him she was giving back his ring and that she was not going to marry him. I believe that caused him to snap in anger," Quanell said. "There is a reason to believe, based on what I know now, there's issues of him possibly molesting young Maleah."

    Quanell admitted Bowens never reported any alleged abuse to police.

    Houston police say they have no additional comment during their ongoing investigation. Eyewitness News is in the process of reaching out to Vence for a response to the allegations.
    abc13 News -- KTRK Houston and Southeast Texas News

    Maybe she meant she only broke off engagement, not actually ending their relationship. Why would he be angry for her breaking off the engagement. They’ve had two years to marry & did not. IMO he’d have no trouble replacing BB.
    Did he snap because she called off the nuptials or because she found nude pics on his phone?

    Also how will Eyewitness reach DV if he’s left the area?

    Hey Everyone,

    We all saw this coming but it still rips your heart out. Sweet little Maleah never had a chance with the monster her mother let live with them.

    We have been asked to give guidance to this thread as far as what can be discussed.

    If you new here then please note you can discuss what is being reported on in the mainstream media. Also, discuss what Maleah's mom has stated, and you can offer your opinion as to what happened to Maleah but you cannot randomly accuse family members, neighbors, or anyone who has not been named as a person of interest. Maleah's step-father is the only person of interest so far. However, Maleah's mom is under the media spotlight because we all want to know what she knew about or if she knew about what was going on with her husband and her daughter. You can certainly speculate on what the mother knew but please do not go crazy with unfounded accusations against the mom until we know more.

    Thank you,
    Tricia

    Hope this helps

    @Trudie I'm trying to see if I can find similar sweat/running pants with red on the stripe.

    Try Kohl’s. I think they had some in store. Ty
    I don’t think he’d walk around with visible blood on his pants.
    He had to be aware of the camera.
    Could BB have access to that camera from her phone (if the neighbor consented)?

    I think when QX mentioned that DV sent BB "disturbing" text messages after the "fight" that happened just before she flew to MA (if it happened), that is when the aunt (not sure which one, seems likely to be CD's sister who has older brother now) came by to pick up him and Maleah (and DV told her Maleah was sick). I know there is reference to this incident on SM but I think it has also been discussed elsewhere when MSM was reporting that Maleah was sick last week.

    Anyway, that's when BB SHOULD have called 911 to get her kids the hell away from DV but I think she had a glimmer of fear for them when she saw the text messages and called the aunt to go get them instead. Too little too late.

    I think this means LE should be talking to the aunt about what BB told her and why she wanted her to help the kids (can't have seemed too urgent though if she didn't push back on DV refusing to let her see Maleah -- or he's really scary). It also might reveal that the 5-year-old brother was present in the apartment during whatever happened.

    I don't think he did either.

    And, yes, she could have accessed it from her phone. You just need the security camera's app and login information.

    @Winterhike do you know what time BB’s plane departed for MA? I interpret the fight was just prior to her departure, while she was still home. So why would he text her. If she was at airport, did she have his phone? She found nude pics that day, right?

    Aha. So she could get alerts from the camera?
