Welcome I am new to posting too. I think this case caught my attention so fiercely because little Maleah pulls at my heart. She needed protecting. And her body is still out there somewhere needing to be found so it can tell her story and be laid to rest. Based on the history of repeated trauma to her head, I think it is unlikely her death was a true accident (it may have been an “accident” in the sense that her killer didn’t “mean to” kill her but only intended to abuse her) or related to illness. It seems more likely to me that “the flu” was a cover story. So sad to say, but since she was regularly being violently abused that’s probably how she died. Imo of course. Since you are from nearby, maybe you know how to find out a trash pickup day? Where would you look, if you wanted to know what day trash pick up comes in your neighborhood/apt complex?
