Michigan 5-year-old Mariha Trenice Smith found dead in burnt out house, skull smashed

A 5-year-old girl who vanished in Michigan last weekend has been found dead in a burned out house.

Mariha Trenice Smith was last seen in her family’s home on Sunday morning. However, firefighters found the girl’s body on a mattress in a burned out home about a mile away early on Sunday morning.

Tests were carried out and it has now been confirmed that the body was Mariha Trenice Smith, and that her skull was smashed in. Police are treating the death as a homicide, but are unclear how the girl got from her family’s house to the scene of the fire.
