This is so sad especially since something similar just happened to a pregnant St. Petersburg teen. According to reports Anastasia Gilley was found dead near Dothan Alabama. Gilley was missing and also pregnant. The body was found by a Houston County police officer after investigating in multiple counties. Gilley who was four months pregnant was last seen by her father May 2nd in Jackson County Florida.
Police confirm that Marquis McCloud has been charged with her murder. He is facing one count of capital murder during kidnapping in the first degree. An autopsy is being performed by the Department of Forensic Sciences in Montgomery. This will confirm the identity and more details will be released as the investigation moves forward.
McCloud was arrested during the investigation because he violated his parole in Houston County by coming to Florida. Authorities discovered that he and the victim had been in contact with one another. McCloud was very uncooperative during the investigation and it is unknown if they were romantically involved or not.
McCloud’s past criminal record includes multiple charges of fraud, rape, robbery, making terror threats and more. He also has prior convictions in Georgia. Please be safe, and I will keep you updated on this story. Is there a missing person you want me to report on? Please email me Babs@wild941.com
