Arrest Made in Mariah Woods Disappearance
Earl Kimrey, the 32-year-old live-in boyfriend of Mariah Wood’s mother, was taken into custody late Friday and charged with concealing a death and second-degree burglary, among other charges, the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office said. He was being held on a $1 million bond.
FBI spokeswoman Shelley Lynch said a dive team discovered the three year-old girl’s remains alongside Shaw Highway in rural Pender County near Shelter Creek, a tributary of the Northeast Cape Fear River. She had been missing for nearly a week.
