Officers Notice Bag In Woman's Vehicle During Routine Stop, Solve 10-Year-Old Mystery

mystery

The remains of a child who has not been seen in over 10 years were reportedly found in his mother’s car during a routine traffic stop earlier this month.

When Tonya Slaton, 44, was pulled over by a Virginia State Police trooper, he discovered a black trash bag in the trunk that contained human remains.

The vehicle was initially pulled over for expired tags, but after it was revealed that the car was not registered in Virginia and the license plates were not on file with the Department of Motor Vehicles, the trooper began the process of impounding the vehicle, which includes taking inventory of its contents.

While taking inventory, the trooper discovered the black trash bag sealed with duct tape in the trunk with a body inside. A strong odor of rotting flesh was coming from the bag, according to police.

Slaton allegedly told the trooper the bag was filled with clothes.

Virginia State Police have now confirmed that the remains belonged to Slaton’s biological son, Quincy Jamar Davis, CBS 6 reports.

Davis was last seen in 2004, when he was in the 7th grade in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

“The victim’s death was likely the result of some homicidal action,” one investigator stated on a search warrant.

A missing persons report was never filed for Davis and police are currently asking anyone with information to come forward.

“We really want people to come forward with any information, what could be a small detail to someone could be really important to investigators,” said Virginia State Police spokesperson Sgt. Vick. “We would appreciate any assistance.”

Davis' cause of death is currently under investigation.

Slaton has been charged with concealment of a dead body and is being held without bond at the City of Hampton Jail. Further charges against her are pending.
