Maleah Davis, the 4-year-old Texas girl who touched hearts around the world, will be laid to rest this weekend in a custom casket decorated with artwork from “My Little Pony”.
The custom painted casket was created and donated by Texas-based company Trey Ganem’s SoulShine Industries, the company confirmed to CBS News.
Maleah’s private funeral will be held this Saturday. According to her obituary, “she loved My Little Pony, all the girly things one could imagine.”
The casket is covered with rainbow-colored drawings of My Little Pony, a toy line and television series that was popular in the 1980s and ’90s.
The sides of the casket features the name “Maleah Lynn Davis,” in bright colors and the inside of the casket is upholstered in rainbow colors, with a bright light and images of the television show on the top.
Maleah’s biological father, Craig Davis, posted images of the tiny casket on his Instagram page.
Maleah was reported missing on May 4, a day after her mother’s fiancé, Derion Vence, told police he was carjacked by three Hispanic males who took Maleah.
Police were suspicious of his story from the beginning. He was arrested on May 11 and charged with tampering with a human corpse.
Maleah’s bones were found strewn alongside Highway I-30 outside the town of Hope, Arkansas in late May. Due to the condition of her remains a cause of death could not be determined.
