Meleah Davis And The Casket She Was Buried In After Her Body Was Found

Maleah Davis — the 4-year-old found dead after she went missing in early May — will be buried in a colorful, one-of-a-kind casket, a tribute to her memory and her grieving family.

The casket was built and donated by SoulShine Industries to the Davis family.

“The casket is the most important part of remembering somebody, so it should be special,” said company owner Trey Ganem told CNN.

Ganem said that he received over 200 calls from the community asking him to make a casket for the Davis family. She will be buried in a private funeral on Saturday.

“It was such a blessing to provide something special for this loving family,” Ganem said.

The casket designer Courtney Sublett told CNN she worked closely with the family and the theme quickly became apparent. The final product was a white casket covered with rainbows, the color pink, “My Little Pony,” and even a portrait of Maleah.

“It’s such a tragic thing, I’m glad we could bring a little light to her story,” Sublett said.

The funeral home that is hosting the funeral, Richardson Mortuary, has been collecting flowers and condolences on behalf of the family, CNN affiliate KTRK.

Toys and teddy bears are also being collected at the apartment complex where the Davis family lived. A sign says that the items will be displayed at the funeral and then donated to the Houston Fire Department.

Meleah’s remains were found in Arkansas on May 30, according to Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo. Her mother’s former fiancé, Derion Vence, is charged with tampering with a corpse in connection to Meleah’s death.

They always giving excuses for these cops that hurt civilians but the fact is that these people have no control of these cops that kill and murder black people with no regard for protocol. You cannot put a bandaid on a bullet hole and that is what this is. Its not the training it is the hiring process That these people that are camera are failing at. not to mention the elected official that allow stuff like this to happen. They don’t get fired and they don’t go to jail that alone she raise eyebrows
