Remains found in Pender County, NC positively identified as Mariah Woods

Remains found in Pender County, NC positively identified as Mariah Woods

Those test results will be crucial in determining exactly what happened to the 3-year-old girl and who, if anyone, should be charged with her death.

The body found in Pender County on Saturday has been positively identified as missing 3-year-old Mariah Woods, reports CBS affiliate WNCN. Shortly before the discovery, her mother's live-in boyfriend, Earl Kimrey, was arrested in connection with her disappearance. While he has not yet been charged with the child's murder, CPS documents given to a local television news station by Mariah's father, Alex Woods, allege that Kimrey sexually abused Mariah and her two brothers.

An Amber Alert was issued and more than 700 volunteers searched for the missing girl around a creek a few miles from her home.

Additional charges against Kimrey could be pending as the investigation continues. "The respondent parents have a history of exposing the juveniles to adult situations and conversation during their ongoing custody battle".

The 3-year-old vanished from her Jacksonville home on November 27.

It's still unclear what caused the 3-year-old's death, but an arrest warrant for Kimrey said the live-in boyfriend "did hide Mariah Woods death and body, knowing that Mariah Woods died from unnatural causes", according to FOX8.
