Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Daisja was last seen at home on June 10, 2009 and is missing under suspicious circumstances.
Her father, Alandus Weaver, was convicted in 2010 of killing Daisja and dumping her body in Lewisville Lake.
Weaver admitted that he lied to Dallas detectives on three separate occasions, including when he and Tamaira Creagh, Daisja s mother, said the baby had been kidnapped. Tamaira Creagh, 19, originally told police that Daisja Weaver was kidnapped after she fought off a sexual assault in her apartment in the 5800 block of Preston Oaks. Police searched the couple's new apartment in the 18000 block of Marsh Lane and found blood and other possible evidence indicating there was injury to a child.
During the investigation of the baby's disappearance, Creagh came forward with her attorney and said the baby was dead not kidnapped. Creagh eventually told police that Weaver picked her up from work on June 8, and when they got home the baby was dead. She said the girl was cold and had bruises on her eyes, cheeks, stomach and back. Weaver made her ride to Lake Lewisville with him, she told police. Creagh said he stopped on a bridge, tied Daisja's body to a sandbag and dropped her into the lake. Creagh told police she complied because she was months pregnant with his child and she was afraid of what he might do to her. Divers searched the littered lake bottom for days but did not find Daisja's body.
Weaver testified that he lied to police to cover for Creagh, who, he said, killed the baby. He also said they didn't dump Daisja in the lake as the couple had planned, but that Creagh threw the body in a creek near their Dallas apartment. Daisja's body was never found.
A capital murder charge against Weaver was withdrawn, and he was charged with felony murder.
