    Why would the men scratch him? Why even keep him if a little girl was their goal?

    Ha! Exactly.

    That was one of probably a dozen problems that people had with his little fairytale.

    Just your standard child abduction committed by three men, who also kidnap the father.

    Because that has so much precedent...

    Maleah and the 5 yo boy have the same father, CD. The baby (either 1 or 2) is DV’s child.

    True, but if he beat her or did other unspeakable things to her that resulted in her death, my guess is he would not call 911.
    We know he is deceitful. He invented a ridiculous story for fear of getting caught. If he did burn the body, I wonder if he did so for a particular reason. If he buried her or placed her body in a dumpster an autopsy can reveal signs of sexual abuse and analyse every wound to determine cause of death and the extent of the injuries.
    But burning a body helps cover up evidence like that.
    I do think she died from injuries as a result of abuse, maybe partly from complications from the serious head injury. She wasn't wearing her helmet. ( Another reason caseworker should have been checking in on a regular basis)
    But I also think she suffered a brutal and violent death, whether he intended to kill her or not. Imo

    Yes I thought it was an Aunt who picked up the oldest child on Friday also. Turns out is was Dad-Craig Davis, glad that has been corrected.

    The oldest child and Maleah both belong to CD. The toddler is DV's child.

    Initially I thought he & BB may have fought, but that would make the scratches fours days old on Friday. IMO they are self inflicted just like the bulls-eye on his forehead.

    Right, and to left a witness to identify them. Who knows if he had been "grooming" Maleah before, but this would of been his best opportunity to have her for more than a bath. There was no other reason to keep her with him, especially if mom had dumped him before she left.

    I'm very troubled with this whole line of thinking that only a bio father should bathe a daughter. I honestly do not think here in the UK we would generally agree with that at all. It implies all step dads could be perverts. In this case, we're talking about one individual who has *probably* abused a little girl considering the facts we do know, altho the only person to outwardly claim this SO FAR is BB.

    I agree with this completely. When was it made common knowledge that a biologically unrelated male *obviously* is going to molest a female child if left alone/diapers/bathing etc. I think it’s really sad and I think this way of thinking and reacting to such actually makes more space for this kind of predation..

    I am an ER nurse and see abused women all the time. Let me say this. We have a problem in American on issues concerning women. There are many barriers to leaving. It is a fallicy that women can just get up and leave. The barriers are often financial and availability of housing. There are so very few shelters that accept women with shelter and have therapeutic services. In my city, it is impossible for women to just get up and leave. Numerous times, I have paid for hotel rooms for women in the middle of the night.
    On a side note, I just don't think women should leave their children home with men who are not their fathers. Especially, when there is a history of aggression towards the children that are not their own.
    I don't believe in spanking. However, culturally spanking is acceptable.
    I come from a family of CPS workers. It is interesting that the CPS complaint was "unfounded" and determined to be due to a fall.
    My biggest question is did BB have a job or was Derion the primary bread winner in the home.
    Recently, we had a case like this in my city. The mother left the children with her boyfriend. He had a history of violence. He killed all 4 children in the middle of the night.
    In my clinical practice, I report whenever there is a hint of question. Let CPS figure it out. However, my colleagues who are not so diligent.
    I just think we as a society need to report any concerns. We have to do more to protect the most vulnerable in society, elders and chidren.
    The sad thing is I am no longer surprised when this stuff happens. I spend my focus on forensically searching the dynamics of the family and how they got to this point.

    He worked in warehouse and I'm sure he's used box cutters many times, and have scratched himself several times. In the photo's taken in the hospital he has three little strips of tape across the top of one of his injuries and that's it.

    Possibly those scratches on DV were done by acrylic fingernails??
