Missing toddler found dead in family's closet

A 1-year-old was found  dead inside of a closet in her family’s Detroit home just hours after being  reported missing.

17-month-old Zyia  Turner was last seen at her grandmother, Bridget Elam’s east Detroit  home. She was left in the care of  her uncle while Elam ran errands.

The family says they looked everywhere for Zyia  and called the police when they could not  locate her. Cadaver  dogs were brought in to aid in the search and  Zyia’s body was  found under a pile of clothes in a closet inside the home.

Police are questioning several people  concerning the child’s death, but Zyia’s Grandmother believes that her grand daughter’s death was a freak accident. She thinks that Zyia tried to climb up in the closet and got hurt.

An autopsy has been completed,but the results have yet to be released.
