More details are emerging about the mysterious death of 19-year-old Renisha McBride, who left her Detroit home Friday night and never returned.

Dearborn police had said they found McBride’s body “dumped” on the outskirts of Detroit in suburban Dearborn Heights.

Local FOX affiliate WJBK even gave the exact location of where McBride’s body was found: near Warren and Outer Drive.

McBride had been shot once in the head with a shotgun and left to die, police told her anguished aunt, Bernita Spinks.

“All our kids are getting killed. We’re burying our kids. It’s devastating,” Spinks told Fox 2. She pleaded with the public to help identify her niece’s killer(s). “Just as well as it’s my niece and my sister’s daughter, it could be your kid,” she said.

Now police are telling an entirely different story about what happened to Renisha.
