Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo believes 4-year-old Maleah Davis was murdered. Acevedo held a press conference on Thursday to give a brief update on the missing girl.

Acevedo told the media his only suspect, Derion Vence knows where Maleah's body is but he continues to lie about his involvement.

"You could drive a big rig right through the tales this guy has been telling," Acevedo said.

Maleah was reported missing on Saturday, May 14, after Vence claimed he was carjacked by 3 males who abducted the girl.

Vence, 26, was arrested on Saturday and charged with tampering with a corpse. Police do not believe Maleah is alive, but the search for her continues.

Acevedo pleaded with the public to help find Maleah's body to give her a proper burial and bring closure to her family.

"The evidence shows that we believe she has been murdered. Let's bring this baby home, proper burial," he said. "Without finding that body, there is a hole left out there. We want to give them the closure, of both charges and finding her body."

    Lord lead them to sweet little Maleah’s body.

  • Shamwow

    Smh this piece of ? is still playing around. They should put him in solitary confinement so his mind could torture him. Or Pay 1,000 dollars to someone to off this ninja. Too bad he has sugar and all that organic agave one of my rose buds mentioned a few posts back. I truly believe he’s busting it wide in jail and having a grand old time.

    I swear my heart wants this baby found alive. But with each day my mind telling me it's very little chance of that.

  • Shamwow

    I saw a video of mom and Q what’s his name on YouTube giving interviews. I didn’t dare click it. I don’t even want to hear the sound of bitch mom’s voice. It’s too early for me. While step dad cotton candy diva is in jail twisted up like a crab. https://media3.giphy.com/media/gQRrxoX01JNjW/giphy.gif

    my feelings exactly, just wish a miracle would happen and she was found by some good samaritans wandering looking for home.

    on the other end I hope she didn’t suffer through whatever that monster did to her

  • Shamwow

    Especially the video of her entering the house for the last time. Dude was 35 steps ahead of her while she had to run to catch up to him. So sad. He gave no fvcks about her and I gathered that information from watching them walk. He was her fiancé. Smh

    No sh*t Sherlock ! BEAT the truth out of him !

    There is no 'body'.
    They dismembered the body. Remember the a-hole was pictured carrying black garbage bags.

  • Bree

    Police saying, no one in Maleah's disappearance is cooperating. I'm so sad that this poor baby has suffered in this way. However, I strongly believe that she is in God's hands. Can't believe that piece of trash of a mother failed to protect her child. It is one thing to keep silent when you are being abused. But when your child is abused by a man you're in lust with, all hell better break lose! My husband and I aren't parents yet, however, we won't let people watch our kids. Vence is going to rot in hell, not just for killing Malaeh, but for destroying her innocent body, and refusing to tell where he put her.

  • Bree

    The video was enlightening. You can tell the mother is hurt and she is beating herself up over this. She failed her daughter, she is afraid to admit that she put her desires before her kid.

  • GrandHustleGirl1

    That's what I noticed too. How is the baby far behind you while you walk alone like you could care less. Couldn't have been my man. Hell, couldnt even have been me.

  • Bree

    That means there are body parts. Still she deserves a proper burial.

  • Bree

    I figured that when he decided to conjure up his lie, he already made up in his mind that he was not going to tell where he buried Malaeh.

  • GrandHustleGirl1

    Good point. The evidence makes it clear that she was dismembered. Why the heck are they playing!!?!?! We need justice! They're taking their sweet time on this case.
    Bless that child's soul.

  • Bree

    He is probably in solitary confinement. I'm sure prisoners want him dead too.

  • Ghost

    I read that the biological father was siding with Vence ?! He said he blamed the mother for her death because Vence loved her! ???.

    All the parents are bat crazy!!!

  • Bree

    Police has stated no one is cooperating. There is nothing else they can do. To continue to look will waste more resources, since there are no leads.

  • GrandHustleGirl1

    It is wasting resources but she does deserve a proper burial like you said. I find it hard to believe that the mother wasnt an accomplice. Talking about he must have snuck her in the house. Girl this is YOUR child, how did you not know she was in the house while puffing on a square. I cant!

  • Bree

    Haven't had much to say about her father. Apparently, they were together when Malaeh was taken into custody. He did nothing to protect his daughter either. People breed like rats because to them babies are accessories but don't realize that babies are a huge responsibility. Babies aren't handbags that you can collect and put them down when you want or buy a new one. These women lay up, have sex unprotected, get pregnant, but the child suffers greatly because mommy or daddy want to live a hard knock life. Its not fair to them. There's plenty of birth control and condoms to go around

  • Gamer?? Chick

    Well the remainder of her remains, he couldn’t have put her whole body down the disposal. This is too much

  • Bree

    The police need a lead. They need to offer Vence a deal breaker or something. I want her to have a proper burial. This situation is horrible. It's different when children go missing and there are no leads. But the fact that Vence killed her and is refusing to tell where he placed her remains speaks volumes. I think her mother is in a state of shock and denial. She doesn't seem to know how to take this nor is she talking about her daughter the way a mother would.

  • Renee26

    No shit Sherlock ?

    I said the same thang!

    He burned the rest... Remember the gasoline

    She also hesitated for a second before entering the building. She knew what was going to happen behind closed doors. Her parents failed her, then the system failed her. She's in good care now!!

  • Guest©

    The mother always seems so self absorbed. She talks about constantly mentions how she feels and what she is going through instead of focusing on her child. I was done with her when she said she believed Vence was abusing her but she didn't say anything. Her last straw was when she allegedly found him sending inappropriate pics to another man. Why wasn't it the last straw when she believed Vence was abusing her daughter?!? She's just as guilty as Vence, maybe more because Maleah 2as her own flesh and blood!

  • therealashland

    Duh , stupid, we,.. the folks with common sense knew she was killed when her pea headed step daddy said the b/s story about being car jacked and he was beat up and they snatched her. I don't see how these scooby doo cops are even cops.. smh

  • xxxgracious

    Vence will also have to answer to his son he kept alive. Maleah was his big sister. I'm sure he's going to end up with immediately family once this is all over. "Mom and dad didnt raise me because they killed my older sister"...damn shame. May God bless Maleah as well as her siblings ?

  • GAPeach

    Huh? Where did you read that? The last time he commented he was NOT feeling Vence at all, he wanted answers.

  • luVn_liFe…

    NO$H!T SHERLOCK!!

  • luVn_liFe…

    LOL I JUST SAID THE SAME thing.. talking about CPT.Obvious!

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Ok they’re not cooperating, lock everybody up until they talk? every time I see her pic my heart gets heavier like with Kaneeka Jenkins in Chicago? I can’t.....

  • luVn_liFe…

    that's so sad and I didnt think about the little boy :(

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Luv bug.. hey hun?

  • luVn_liFe…

    SugaFOOT!! lol.. I have to giggle cause whew we used to have some chuckles!

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Law heads: can they convict him/them without a body?

  • Yui

    That was a beautiful little girl. How I would’ve been honored to raise such a precious child.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Yes hun?? I missed yall?

  • luVn_liFe…

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Probably under another name ? I don’t know anyone but the original roses now

  • MrsSpice1

    Idk why these poor children end up in the wrong hands!! Its so sad. Just a few days ago a father took all 5 of his children to disney world and murdered them after!!! Sick!!!! I wish America will make a more appropriate punishment to these earth demons then just throwing them in jail and we have to pay for them to be slaves to our government or on death row to rot away in peace! Execution to the full max should be penalized against these disturbed inhumane individuals as a testimony to what is strongly intolerable!!

  • Shamwow

    Ok thanks for letting me know. Do you dislike her less after watching it?

  • Shamwow

    Exactly and she’s the reason he was around her, smh. These girls are so desperate for love. I wonder if she tested herself for hiv. She seem like she wouldn’t.

  • Shamwow

    Smh and if he’s in solitary he can’t receive the thug loving he so desperately wanted.

  • Shamwow

    And How can she leave without saying goodbye!! Is that seriously not a thing. Your gone for a few days and don’t even lay eyes on your flesh and blood?!?!!!?? BITCH!

  • Heat2Hot

    In Texas they can indict him without a body. Unless he pleads guilty it's up to a jury to convict him. He won't have any luck filing an appeal because the Court of Appeals in Texas doesn't play. They struck down 2 men last year who had killed their wives and got rid of the bodies (Rex Nisbett and George De La Cruz).

  • Shamwow

    I hope he didn’t break them up after burning. Lawd I hate churning up thoughts. I swear we always guess things correctly in these comments.

  • GrandHustleGirl1

    Exactly!!! That's why I believe she was in on it. Now ..albeit, she couldve been distraught over her Pappy dying...but naw.

  • Shamwow

    There are case studies that support the belief that fools breed at faster rates than the sound minded.

  • Rere

    Really, I wonder what made them come to this conclusion??

  • GrandHustleGirl1

    She's not and everyone is noticing it. It's making her look really suspicious. Push come to shove ain't no telling what happened. But I will tell you this, karma doesnt skip people.

  • Heat2Hot

    I agree but it isn't all of America. Here in Florida the justice system isn't perfect but it's better than most states when it comes to delivering justice. As a matter of fact, a serial killer was just executed here an hour and a half ago.

  • Soon2BWife

    Me too!!! Her bedroom and closet, school, church, activities all planned out in my head! Poor little thing!!! ?

  • GrandHustleGirl1

    That's what I said. Lock everybody under the jail until they start talking..I bet they start pointing fingers at each and lo and behold you WILL get some answers.
    My mama used to beat everybody *** until we started talking. Lol. My Mama was like oh you gone talk today!

  • Cali

    And the garbage disposal?

  • http://Bossip.com/ ohplease

    I pictured her in my head being with me and my family. Getting to know the community around her, going to family gatherings, having love, blessings & fun. I know she has found peace and love on the other side.

    I feel like this whole situation is disgusting! I want this baby found so bad, Not even for closure for the family because i feel like the whole family at fault! Just so she's not out there and forgotten later on! I tear up off this. The mom was asked why she didn't send the baby to her dads and she said the dad came and picked up the Son but didn't wanna take the daughter! Thats foul... Just red flags EVERYWHERE !

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    They’ve charged ppl without a body sooooo..... anyway I feel like the mom had something to do with that this as well and I feel like the boyfriend is not talking cuz he knows he will take the fall alone

  • HoneyHitchcock

    Where is the person that dropped him off at the hospital and left his car in the parking lot?

  • the guest

    That poor child was so precious, her mother did not deserve her!!!!

    Arrest the mother!!!!

  • the guest

    AMEN.

  • n1kk1a

    Girl, me too. She’s kinda looks like my twin daughter and they’re the same age. I couldn’t imagine why someone would hurt this sweet innocent baby. I’m hoping she’s still alive. I literally cried over this and even showed my husband. This world is sick, but I’m praying that she’s alive.

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Derion Vence and Lil Maleah's mother, Leon Tripp and Latania Carwell's mother and any other satan's spawn that murder/abuses or protects their mate before their child ought to be boiled in oil. Casey Anthony got mofos thinking they can do this kind of stuff and get away with it. - On that note GN Rosebuds.

  • Bree

    I don't dislike her. I dislike the fact she let someone hurt her child on her watch. The first time he touched Malaeh was warning enough for her to get the heck out of dodge. As a woman, I would have taken my children and jumped ship. You don't hurt my child and we will still be sleeping together.

  • dontgetblocked

    I don't want to hear any more until the murdering step-father and his accomplice ..that sad piece of trash mother are sentenced to death. The biological father is a loser as well..

  • MNjumpoffacliff

    This poor little angel ??

  • GAPeach

    Wow! She was failed in the worst way possible.

  • RealATLPeach36

    Y’all can get that baby body back. Just tourture that MF he’ll start talking. We knows he guilty...no trial necessary. Also kill that punk ass mama too

  • MsPam

    Look at that beautiful face.??

  • PK

    Yes!

  • Bree

    I think he would rather die before telling the truth since they are saying he insists that he had nothing to do with her disappearance

  • Bree

    Was probably one of his family member. They housed a fugitive

  • Bree

    Me too. I've always wanted to be a mommy and I've always wanted to have a daughter

  • Bree

    They can't hold you for too long, they've have to let you go. All evidence at this point speaks to the Malaeh's step father. He is the only one that is aware of everything. I think her mom is in denial and that is why she can't function. She knows that she failed her daughter and that is a price she will have to live with for the rest of her life. God warned her when Vence put that baby in the hospital, she did nothing.

  • Bree

    I don't think he loved his own kid more than he "loved" the mother. Because she would have been missing instead of Malaeh. He "loved" her enough to want to see her hurt. He knew he was going to lose her anyway, that didn't matter to him, he kept her alive because he wanted her to suffer. Low down piece of shshs!

  • AndSo

    I agree. You've expressed exactly how I've been feeling since this story broke. My heart is sick for that poor child. May that baby rest in peace.

  • AndSo

    Amen.

  • Bree

    I understand her not doing much when she thought he was doing this and that. Not saying that it is right. But it was evident that he did hurt Malaeh by putting her in the hospital. She missed God. Her allegation of him abusing her was a sign to take your kids and run. God always provide a way of escape. See, she could have taken her kids or at least Maleah with her to the funeral since Maleah had already been hurt by him. That was her way out. Although, her father died, she could have jumped ship. I would have left Malaeh and went back for my other kid. You have to know how to outsmart the enemy. She helped him kill her daughter by not taking her to the warning. God is not a mistake maker.

  • Bree

    He is going to rot. I'm praying somebody can break him down and he gives up Malaeh. But I feel like he is comforted by that fact because he wants Malaeh's mother to hurt.

  • Bree

    You are so right about it!

  • Bree

    He tried to break them up, they were too big to fit down the garbage disposal which why he burned them. He had no other way of getting rid of the evidence. I can only imagine her being tortured.

  • Pamela

    "Maleah was taken into custody". ???

  • Li-Wright

    Just asking. Can they track the gps inside his phone? And as urban as Houston is, you would think they would have cameras everywhere, like Chicago. If you recall, we had cams everywhere to track Jussie and his attackers. It was like a footprint all over the city.

  • Li-Wright

    You're right. It's circumstance evidence. But we just had a guy walk away from a conviction based on circumstance evidence. About 2 years ago the chopped up body of a 2-yo baby was found in a lagoon. It haunted our police department (and me). It took the police about a yr to put the body together and circulate the picture of the baby. Baby belonged to a woman from Rockford who claims she left the baby with her boyfriend in Rockford, while she went looking for work in Iowa. The police interviewed the boyfriend and he told them that 3 men came to the house and told him the girlfriend wanted them to bring her the baby. Anyway, the PD couldn't find any dna evidence, no witnesses.
    Google this story: Man found not guilty of murdering, dismembering toddler found in Garfield Park Lagoon.
    I hope the police go back to the mom. I hate to think that a mom would chop-up their own baby, but stranger things have happened.

  • chan chan

    Wait what???! I need proof of this ????? If he said that he must’ve really hated the mother’s guts!!

  • chan chan

    Exactly. Low key he’s probably glad he doesn’t have the financial responsibility of that child anymore. Some men are sick like that.

    I would have love to take this young girl off the hands of her mother if she didn't want her and raise her as mine......My husband would love and protect her.....And i don't know about my spoiled puppy.....He would have to deal with it....

  • Topic Influencer

    This.

  • Raquel

    Exactly. Torture seems to work in most countries so......at this point,I wouldn't care how they got the info from him.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Sadly, the investigators said they found flesh in the drainage of the garbage disposer. That POS dismembered that baby and disposed of her.

  • Maxx

    There are explanations given that make sense & she says she never knew of any abuse previously, but her lawyer even said she could have done more as there were warning signs. The video made me have empathy for the young lady & you can tell she is hurting as a mother & in shock that this is real life.

  • Bree

    Search volunteers are asking for FBI involvement. They are also open for volunteers that will come out to help look for Malaeh.

  • Bree

    You are so right! I've seen that demon up close and in person. And it hates women! It will kill a woman before it take a man's life. People don't believe that demons are real but they are. They ain't nothing nice either. I've had to rebuke those things in the name of Jesus! They hate the name of Jesus!

  • Bree

    I'm not judging people. But I look at situations like this and I learn from them. Teen pregnancy ran rampant in my neighborhood. I refused to even kiss a boy because I was scared of getting pregnant. Not saying I'm perfect but the more things around me happen, the more I learn. I've seen what that life is like, I don't want that for myself or my kids. If you want to have sex all day, every day, fine, but protect yourself and protect your kids.

  • Bree

    It's cool.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Houston here, too and I would have also loved to have taken her. My 2 young men are grown and I never had a daughter, only nieces.

  • Mslife

    Right the more you read and find out it just makes it harder to hear about. As a mother who puts there child in that type of danger.

  • Mslife

    Yes and I guess he feels if he don't say nothing he better off. However I get the feeling if he talks the mother involvement going to come to light.

  • Mslife

    None at all

  • currvalicious

    Maybe at this point, if he dismembered her, there's no body to actually recover. However, is ad cave demon just need to speak up & tell the truth. B/c everyone feels there's left over remains (that hasn't been destroyed) buried somewhere. When in fact he could've burned the left over remains. This is about the sickest crime ever.

  • currvalicious

    I agree. I just stated there's nothing to look for. However, that sick freak needs to tell the truth. Let law enforcement know there's nothing out there to find. But he won't b/c he doesn't want the death penalty.

  • currvalicious

    Yeah, so you know they ain't shit. Come knocking on my door accused of harming a childchild in any way; you might as well stand (outside!) there & wait for the police. You will not be welcomed into my home, idc who you are.

  • TheOwley

    There's likely a DNA match which is why they are saying they believe she's already gone. I think both were involved and protecting each other by not cooperating with the authorities.
