Oklahoma’s chief medical examiner has positively identified the body of a child found earlier this month as 4-year-old Athena Brownfield.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation made the announcement on social media Thursday.
The girl was reported missing Jan. 10 when a postal carrier found her 5-year-old sister alone outside the home where she lived with Ivon Adams III and his wife, Alysia Adams.
Ivon Adams was arrested in Arizona on murder and child neglect charges and returned to Oklahoma.
Alysia Adams is charged with two counts of child neglect. The bureau says it will not have additional comment on the case due to a gag order.
