Findings Lead Police to Believe Murdered 5-Year-Old Could Have Been Buried Alive


A 5-year-old Michigan girl whose body was found in a cement-covered grave last month may have been buried alive.

Autopsy results showed Neveah Buchanan, 5, suffocated after inhaling dirt, meaning she may have been buried alive.(ABC News)

...Nevaeh's body was found by fisherman June 4, wearing a shirt that matches the description of the clothing the little girl was last seen in before she disappeared from the parking lot of her Monroe, Mich., apartment complex on May 24...

Monroe County Sheriff Tilman Crutchfield was not immediately available for comment today, but said shortly after the discovery of Nevaeh's body that there were no visible signs of abuse and that she had been buried along the River Raisin "for awhile."

He declined to comment specifically about how the body was buried, only that it had some type of concrete or cement on the top. He also would not say what else investigators recovered from the grave.

There have not been any arrests made yet in the case.

Crutchfield has named two convicted sex offenders as persons of interest. George Kennedy, 39, and Roy Lee Smith, 48, both said to be acquaintances of Nevaeh's mother, were arrested shortly after Nevaeh's disappearance on probation violations...

Crutchfield said Jennifer Buchanan was cooperating with police, but would not comment...
