5-year-old Shaniya Davis’s body was discovered today on the side of a road near the city of Sanford, North Carolina.
Antoinette Nicole Davis, the mother of a toddler missing in North Carolina, is facing charges of child prostitution, human trafficking, child abuse and filing a false police report.
5-year-old Shaniya Davis had been missing since Tuesday when a surveillance camera captured the child being carried into a hotel room with a man. That man has since been identified as Mario Andrette McNeill who admitted to taking the child and now faces kidnapping charges. Authorities have not said whether or not McNeill and Davis knew each other. Police did not find Shaniya in the hotel room, nor could police dogs pick up her scent.
According to arrest documents cited by local newspaper, The Fayetville Observer, Davis “knowingly provided Shaniya Davis with the intent that she be held in “sexual servitude” and she “permitted an act of prostitution.”
What kind of mother would do something like this to their own baby?!
This case is so, so sad!
