Confirmed: Body In Local Freezer Janiya Thomas


Authorities confirm Monday that the body of a child found in a freezer at a Bradenton home is that of 11 year old Janiya Thomas.

The child has not been seen in more than a year.

Janiya’s mother Keishanna remains in jail on abuse of a corpse charges.

Police continue to try and determine how Janiya died.

It took more than a week to confirm the identity of the body because standard autopsy procedures were not adequate.

DNA testing, which takes longer, had to be done.
