ANALYSIS OF SURVEILLENCE PHOTOS
Last Friday when I appeared on the Nancy Grace show, I was asked to comment about the body language of then missing 5 year old Shaniya Davis. When I saw the two photos from the Comfort Suites hotel surveillance video of her being carried by her kidnapper Mario Andrette McNeill I was sickened.
After seeing one photo of her being held with her knees pulled together and the other photo of her crossed legs, it became obvious to me that there was no doubt that this beautiful innocent little girl had been sexually molested. This body language gesture is a protective gesture indicating that the little girl was protecting her private areas and had no doubt been hurt in that area. She may have also been in pain, Thus, squeezing her knees together and crossing of her legs may have been her attempts at quelling the pain.
It turns out that her body language was indeed reflective of what was happening to this precious and beautiful little girl. Allegedly she was being used as a child prostitute Her horrific mother Antoinette N. Davis is now accused of human trafficking, felony child abuse involving prostitution, filing a false police report and interfering with the investigation. In court the judge told her she faced 40 years in prison on the charges.
MARKED CONTRAST IN THE GIRLS GROOMING
The other thing that struck me about the photos I examined was the condition of her little girl’s hair. It was unkempt and wild. In comparison of previous photos of Shaniya where she was well dressed and well coiffed it seemed inconsistent. It was such a marked contrast that it made me wonder if her mother was negligent or on drugs and didn’t bother to groom her. Evidently this was a significant observation.
As it tuned out this little girl was cared for by her biological father Bradley Lockhart who emotionally pleaded with the press to help finds his daughter when her mother first reported the girl missing, The mothers story was inconsistent, which made me suspicious. It validated my thoughts concerning the girl’s hair.
Apparently the father was the one who raised this beautiful girl for several years, Only 3 weeks ago he let her live with her mother in a trailer and now rues the day he made that decision. He never married the girl’s mother and stated she was just a one night stand. So he obviously cared for the little girl and her grooming when she was living with him, When she went to live with her mother, the child’s grooming apparently stopped;
When kidnapper McNeill was arrested, according to authorities he was “extremely uncooperative.” In his court appearance he had a Cheshire cat grin- a smugness about him that indicated no remorse. Is what one of his neighbors said was true in that the girl’s mother owed McNeill money, this child may have been used as some type of pawn in a vendetta.
SHANIYA’S MOTHER’S BODY LANGUAGE IN COURT
Shanyia’s precious dead body was found in a wooded area in North Carolina near a deer carcass, Her horrific mother Antoinette N. Davis is now accused of human trafficking, felony child abuse involving prostitution, filing a false police report and interfering with the investigation. In court the judge told her she faced 40 years in prison on the charges. Personally I hope she rots in hell for this.
.In a video tape of the mother’s body language during her initial court appearance in front of the judge I observed that she initially had a blank facial expression with lots of lip licking and lip biting, She appeared to understand all that the judge was saying and responded to him accordingly
At several points the the judge asked her is she understood the what he was doing and the charges against her doing. She replied “Yes sir several times. Her upper chest breathing was visible and labored, The lip biting became more pronounced as the judge spoke to her with the lip biting going from side to side, At one point there was a flash where her eyes looked at half closed and another flash point where she rolled her eyes upwards to the ceiling. These are gestures that one often makes as they go through drug withdrawal. As the judge spoke to her she became more and more alert.
I am sure she will have enough time in prison to become alert enough to realize what he did to this innocent child is unforgiveable. http://www.drlillianglass.com
