Tonya SlatonHAMPTON, VA – Police have arrested 44-year-old Tonya Slaton after the remains of her son, missing since 2004, were found in the trunk of her car.

Slaton was pulled over by a state trooper on the morning of June 6 for driving her Ford Mustang on expired tags. When the trooper asked Slaton about a large white spot on the floor behind the driver’s seat, Slaton explained it was from bleach.

The trooper asked Slaton if she had anything in the trunk of her car, she claimed she only had clothes in her trunk. When the trooper decided to look for himself, he reported the smell of rotted flesh as soon as the trunk was opened.

The source of the smell was the corpse of Slaton’s biological son, Quincy Jamar Davis, who has been missing since 2004. His body was in two plastic bags wrapped in duct tape. The boy has not been seen since 2004 when he was in seventh-grade at Virginia Beach Middle School.

Slaton never filed a missing person report, and it doesn’t seem as the kid had anyone who cared enough about him to notify authorities that he had simply disappeared. Slaton was arrested and charged with concealment of a dead body and remains in jail without bond. Additional charges are pending.

An official cause of death has not been released, however, one investigator believed “the victim’s death was likely the result of some homicidal action.”

“We really want people to come forward with any information, what could be a small detail to someone could be really important to investigators,” said Virginian State Police spokesman Sgt. Vick. “We would appreciate any assistance.”

Investigators are asking anyone who had contact with Slaton or Quincy in the 2004 era to contact Virginia State Police at 757-424-680.

This isn’t Slaton’s first run-in with the law. In 2007 she was convicted of shooting into an occupied dwelling and attempted maiming after she fired for shots through her boyfriend’s front door when he tried to break up with her.

She served almost four years of a 15 year sentence for that stunt, leaving one to wonder; where in the hell was Davis’ body during all that time?
