This is still so sad:
Fayetteville Police Chief Tom Bergamine said Tuesday that tips continue to come in anonymously to the task force assigned to the case. About 20 people are assigned to the task force, Bergamine said. They are working hand and glove with the District Attorney’s Office. When asked if there were any new suspects in the case, Bergamine said several teams continue to work leads every day, and the case is ongoing.
On Tuesday, Shaniya’s mother, Antoinette Davis, was transferred to the North Carolina Correctional Center for Women in Raleigh for safekeeping. Debbie Tanna, a spokeswoman for the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office, said Davis was moved to make sure she wasn’t harmed by herself or others.
“She is pregnant, so special precautions had to be taken,” Tanna said. Davis is charged with human trafficking and felony child abuse involving prostitution. Her bail was set at $51,000.
Shaniya’s Father speaks on this craziness:
Shaniya’s father, Bradley Lockhart, said during an interview on NBC’s “Today” show Tuesday that he regrets how the decision to let Shaniya stay with her mother turned out, but he thought he was making the right choice at the time.
“We obviously make decisions in life that sometimes have repercussions or adverse situations that drift from our decision,” he said. “We just have to continue to believe in God and hope that our decisions are the correct ones.” Lockhart said he last saw Shaniya in early October as he left for an out-of-state work assignment. Shaniya moved in with her mother about a week later after initially staying with Lockhart’s sister, he said. Bergamine said it was still unclear to investigators why Shaniya was pulled out of school in October. Shaniya had been enrolled at Morganton Road Elementary School. Her aunt, Carey Lockhart-Davis, lives in the district. Bergamine said he wanted the task force to leave no stone unturned. “It’s very important as we prepare the case for the District Attorney’s Office that we cover everything that’s possible,” he said.
That broad’s bail is only 51K?? Let’s hope that she stays locked up forever and they don’t even allow her to touch the child that is growing inside of her right now. SMH. R.I.P. little Shaniya.
