Police has found physical and forensic evidence that links the man to the murder of Jorion White. It was reported that her mom was working overnight, when she left her daughter in her boyfriend’s house, to be taken care of.
Officials refused to provide more details about injuries in the body of the girl. However they affirmed they had found video footage from the area. The recorded footage provides “meaningful and substantial” information, according to The Advocate.
“She was a perfect young lady. She liked to have her hair combed, she liked to have her dress all nice, and they found her in pink rollers. That is not something that she would normally go out of the house in.” said Katrice Reid, godmother of White, according to The Advocate.
