Rest in peace Maleah Davis…..

The city of Houston has declared June 9th “Maleah Davis” Day.

As reported, 4-year-old Maleah Davis was missing for over a month before her remains were found along a road in Arkansas. Her stepfather, Derion Vence, is the main suspect.

Medical examiners are still investigating the cause of Maleah’s death.

According to Fox 26, the city issued a proclamation that officially declares June 9th as Maleah Davis Day in the city of Houston. In celebration of her life, City Hall will also turn the lights pink in her honor and a walk has been organized near the area for Sunday.

Here’s the Mayor of Houston’s Declaration:

“The City of Houston is dedicated to maintaining an environment where our youth can enjoy a childhood filled with heart-warming memories and growing experiences, yet tragically, Maleah Davis was taken much too soon.

“Although the circumstances surrounding the disappearance and death of Maleah Davis were heartbreaking, the community is united in creating lasting changes in her honor and vowing to safeguard all children in our community. Amongst calls for justice, may those who knew and loved her all find peace and comfort during these trying times.

“On June 9, 2019, the lights of City Hall will be turned pink, which was Maleah Davis’ favorite color, as family, friends and the Houston community gather in remembrance for a very sweet, beautiful and innocent little girl.

“The City of Houston is honored to join the family and friends of Maleah Davis, as well as the community, in remembering her and extends sincere condolences on this day of remembrance, as her life and her beautiful spirit will never be forgotten.

“Therefore, I, Sylvester Turner, Mayor of the City of Houston, hereby proclaim June 9, 2019, as Maleah Davis Day in Houston, Texas.”

 

Rest in peace babygirl.
