Harris County, TexasThe medical examiner’s office has identified remains discovered in Pasadena Bayou last week, as those of missing 2-year-old Nadia Lee, according to reports.
FOX 26 in Houston It reported on March 20 that Houston police said Nadia’s remains were discovered in Vince Bayou, though the medical examiner’s office needed a full verification.
Nadia’s father, Jeron Charles Lee, 26, has been charged with the murder of his 22-year-old wife, Nancy Reed, as well as the death of Nadia, who was last seen on Oct. 16 on South Richie Street in Pasadena, Texas.
Reid was found unresponsive in a hotel room on October 13. Earlier that night, a 911 call was made regarding a dispute between the couple over child custody. Neither parent, at the time, claimed to have any missing children, according to police.
Police said two other children, ages 1 and 3, were with Lee and the woman, and one of the children was Lee.
Police said the dispute was settled and the officers left.
But at about 10:30 p.m., The authorities were called again to the scene, and Lee told officers he had gotten into an argument with Reed and put her in a chokehold to prevent her from harming the children.
Reid was taken to HCA Hospital – Clear Lake, where she was pronounced dead.
Lee at the scene, after investigation, was arrested accused of killing his wife. Police said the two children at the scene were not dead.
It was later reported by FOX 26 that another child, Nadia, was not at the scene. After failing to locate Nadia, the case is referred to the Missing Persons Division.
Lee was responsible for Nadia at the time of her disappearance.
The detectives received information during the investigation that there might have been foul play, so the homicide department took charge of the case and ensured they had enough information to determine that foul play was a factor.
The medical examiner was, as of Friday, still determining how Nadia had died.
Lee’s bond is set at $1.85 million.
