Alright, I am not a concrete specialist or anything, but from what I have seen walking on it with sidewalks and roads....I would think that someone like Kennedy who works with concrete would know how to set it right so that it would not crumble....but someone like me would not and might add too much water, might not mix it right, or would be dumb enough to pour the powder on and then just dump some water ontop without mixing.

........sounds like a JB job.






actually dolce.you could mix the bagged concrete..anyone can,my husband uses it all the time ,most of the time he just pours a 20oz soda bottle of water with a bag of concrete,,it sets up almost immediately,and if this person did this beside the lake,all they would have to do is pour the concrete and splash some water up on it,,like i said it takes no time to set

Didn't this Easter guy turn over receipts to LE?  I just wonder if any of those receipts show a purchase for quickrete/concrete.

And what was he all burning in his backyard, receipts?

or burning empty bags?

"Friends of the family said Nevaeh's body was found clothed with the same striped shirt and knee-length blue jeans she was wearing when she disappeared."

Police suspect body found is missing Monroe girl
Midday update


UPDATED 11:28 AM - MONROE — Authorities have a "reasonable suspicion" that a child's body buried on the banks of a river is that of a 5-year-old girl who disappeared nearly two weeks ago, the Monroe County sheriff said today.


"The body in appearance appears to be of the same age, size and sex of Nevaeh Buchanan," Sheriff Tilman Crutchfield said at a news conference. "We have reasonable suspicion that this is the body of Nevaeh."


Crutchfield said an autopsy was being conducted by the Wayne County medical examiner's office, and all evidence recovered from the scene was to be submitted to the state police crime lab.


Investigators recovered a shirt similar to the one Nevaeh was wearing "at the time she was abducted," Crutchfield said.


The body was discovered Thursday afternoon by a father and son fishing along the banks of the River Raisin in Monroe County's Raisinville Township.


Some type of cement was found on top of the body, which appeared to be buried in a shallow grave, said Andrew Arena, special agent in charge of the FBI's Detroit office.


The body was found about 7 miles from Nevaeh's home and 35 miles southwest of Detroit. She last was seen May 24 in a parking lot of her apartment complex.


The discovery of the body believed to be Nevaeh should allow investigators to focus on finding the person responsible, Crutchfield said.


"(The) person (responsible) to our knowledge is still out there in the community," he said. "In my opinion, it is a very sick or disturbed person we're looking for — a person that is able to abduct and murder an innocent 5-year-old child."


The discovery also ends a "nerve-racking" chapter for the family, said Nevaeh's uncle, Michael Buchanan.


When the girl's mother, Jennifer Buchanan, was told about it "she broke down, and broke down hard," said Michael Buchanan, her brother.


"She couldn't believe her daughter had to go through this," he said, adding that if it is Nevaeh's body it provides "some type of closure, even if it is for the worst.


"Whoever is found guilty of this case, I hope and pray they get the maximum punishment possible, regardless of who it is."


Investigators said they were returning to the river's edge today to look for more evidence. Arena described it as a "grid search" in which every ounce of dirt is taken and sifted.

River combed for clues in Nevaeh case

'Reasonable suspicion' body found is missing 5-year-old

By AMBER HUNT AND TAMMY STABLES BATTAGLIA
FREE PRESS STAFF WRITERS

Updated at 12:01 p.m.

Now that the body of 5-year-old Nevaeh Buchanan has likely been found, investigators are in the midst of painstakingly combing the banks of the River Raisin for clues, an FBI agent said this morning.

"Every inch of soil needs to be sifted," said Special Agent Andrew Arena. "It's tedious and, honestly, a little dangerous for our searchers along the steep riverbank."

Law-enforcement officials this morning confirmed that a body found Thursday by fishermen matches Nevaeh in height, gender and description. Family members haven't identified the body yet, said Monroe County Sheriff Tilman Crutchfield, but it appears to be the girl who went missing May 24.

Two fishermen discovered the body under a layer of what appeared to be concrete that had been poured over a shallow grave, Arena said.

The girl had been buried there "for quite a while," Crutchfield said.

Arena said the concrete mix poured atop the body might have been mixed with river water. The grave was inches from the river, he said.

While FBI profilers are working to try to narrow down the type of individual likely responsible, Crutchfield said "that person, to our knowledge, is still out in the community."

"I'm of the opinion this is a sick and disturbed person we're looking for," he told reporters.

Officials wouldn't comment on the ongoing investigation except to say they've fielded more than 1,000 leads and they're following each of them.

o officials said. Wayne County's medical examiner will conduct the autopsy today.

Under contract to do all of Monroe County's autopsies, the Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office received the body overnight, Chief Investigator Albert Samuels said just before noon. Removed from the concrete used to conceal it, the body still needs a formal identification, he said.

"We have to positively identify that’s who this is," he said. The autopsy should be done sometime this afternoon. "We’re doing dental work as well as the autopsy.”

"When a body is recovered like this, it's difficult for a layman" to tell the cause of death, Arena said. "There were no apparent blows to the head or anything like that."

The fishermen said they found the body about noon Thursday. Crutchfield said that a task force arrived about 3 p.m. and confirmed that the site indeed was a burial spot.

The area is cordoned off during the search by land, air and water, Crutchfield said. Divers will be searching the water and analyzing the soil.

Crutchfield said the discovery has been difficult for investigators.

"Most of the people involved have children or grandchildren of that age, so it's very personal for them," he said. "It's heartbreaking."

'She didn't deserve to die'

Nevaeh's uncle, Mike Buchanan of Newport, arrived at his sister's Monroe apartment complex at about 10 a.m. today, still grasping "that 1% chance it still might not be" Nevaeh's body. He said Nevaeh's mother, Jennifer Buchanan, who remains in seclusion, is understandably devastated.

"She can't believe her daughter had to go through this," he said.

Mike Buchanan said he wasn't sure if the family planned to travel to Detroit to see if the body there is Nevaeh.

"If it is, we do have some type of closure, even if it is for the worst," her uncle said. Grateful to the two fishermen who made the discovery, Mike Buchanan hurts for them, too. "I feel sorry for them," he said.

Mike Buchanan paused for composure, his face reddening, when asked about those responsible.

"I hope they get the most punishment possible -- no matter who it is."

Anger percolated from the Buchanans' cousin, Shaun Lawson, who asked those gathered if allegations his little cousin was found entombed in concrete was true.

"If she was, it would have to be one of the most sickest individuals across this nation," Lawson said. "She didn't deserve to die. She didn't deserve to be kidnapped. And you're still walking these streets. I hope you get what's coming to you -- and you will."

Hundreds of volunteers had searched daily for Nevaeh, marking off with black marker areas they'd covered on a tattered map.

Three men, each with sexual assault backgrounds, have been questioned. At least one has been eliminated as a person of interest; no one has been arrested in the disappearance and apparent death.

I am the exact same way, and it is very confusing, isn't it?  The explanation from the fisherman, it sounded like from a horror movie

Family members haven't identified the body yet.  Would the family view the body after the autopsy? I would think, and I don't know, but one would think a member of the family has seen and identified the body.

I would think that because LE is saying they think this is Nevaeh, they would have had a family member try to id her and/or her clothing. 

If it was my daughter, and I had absolutely nothing to do with her disappearance, I would want to see her.  I know how hard that would be, and I am getting choked up at the thought of it, but I would NEED to see her.  KWIM?

In my mind, I can find a way to suspect the neighbor upstairs, the fisherman, the 3 SO's, and last but not least the egg donor and before the day is out I'll most likely come up with a few more. The obvious is just that, obvious, too easy to blame the RSO but everything points to him and the mother in my eyes.........

Me too, something just seems wrong with this, I don't believe a family member hasn't seen the remains. Most people would want to see, to make sure it was your loved one/or not.

I'm not sure where they got that from.  I know from whom I believe to be a very reliable source that the family identified Nevaeh last night.  In my experience, it is very unusual to have an indentification following an autopsy in a case like this.  I don't want to sound gruesome, but autopsies are very invasive.  My supposition is that the family identified her through photographic evidence.

IIRC it stated that the grandmother identified the CLOTHING that was found with the body, no mention of her actually viewing the body yet that I recall.
