The body of Neveah Buchanan, the 5-year-old who went missing almost 14 days ago was found in River Raisin in Southeast Michigan.

According to police reports the body of the 5 year old girl was found by a fisherman, Guy Bickley, who is 51 years of age. Following the discovery of the body, Bickley immediately called up the police authorities of the small town that is about 35 miles from Detroit.

Naveah Buchanan’s grandmother, who was her legal guardian, identified the body through the girl’s clothes, which according to her grandmother matched what Neveah was wearing at the time of her disappearance. However, to confirm that no mistake has been made in regard to the identification of the body the investigators sent the body for DNA tests, the results of which are yet to be released.

Shawn Lawson, a cousin of Nevaeh’s mother, reflecting on his niece’s death said, “We need a neighborhood watch on every corner and every sex offender should have a sign in their yard. I feel absolutely sorry for the person who did this. God forbid if we find whoever did this.”

Though the cause of Naveah’s death is still vague, the police suspect that it could have been a cold blooded murder. Currently, two suspects George Kennedy and Roy Smith are being held in police custody in relation to the death of Naveah. The former of the two suspects, George Kennedy, has been convicted for sex offense in the past.
