9-year-old found in refrigerator died in January, weighed 14 pounds

HOUSTON - by Malini Basu/KHOU 11 News and www.khou.com

Investigators say a 9-year-old girl who was found inside a refrigerator on Monday had been dead since January and weighed just 14 pounds.

A neighbor called police to the Happy Home Apartments located in the 10100 block of Club Creek after the victim's 5-year-old sister found her body wrapped in a blanket and stuffed in a refrigerator drawer.   

Family members said the victim had cerebral palsy, needed a wheelchair to get around and was bottle fed.

Her mother Amber Keys told police that one night in January Ayahana just stopped breathing.  Keys said she performed CPR, but it was too late.

Police said Keys told them she didn't know what to do with her daughter's body. Keyes turned herself in to police on Tuesday. She is not facing any charges right now.

"We don't know what to say to ya'll, this is horrible, it's really horrible," said Linda Stevens, the victim's aunt.

CPS workers said Ayahana weighed just 14 pounds.

"It's devastating to everyone. We loved her. All loved her," said Kathi Combs, the victim's grandmother.

Now the family is trying to get custody of their only surviving niece.

A makeshift vigil has been made outside the apartment.
