Crystal Davis told Howard County Deputy Aaron Quick that she told both of her children to go to their bedrooms and complete their homework, according to the incident report. She added “that around 9 a.m. she saw Destiny in the kitchen eating breakfast with the rest of the family. Mrs. Davis stated that her son told her that around 10 a.m., Destiny came to his room to get a book from him.” Crystal Davis told Quick that was the last time anyone had contact with Destiny.
