"dfpConfig": { If a police person came into the store, showed me a picture of someone and asked if they had been in that morning, I don’t think I could give a reliable answer. Later on, when Dwanna watched Target's surveillance footage with the police, she pointed to a woman and child that couldn't possibly have been her (according to the police, there were obvious differences between Dwanna's clothing and that of the woman in the footage). The missing kid found in Georgia was between 5 and 8 years old but found wearing size 11 shoes? True Crime Garage did an episode on this case not too long ago. Press J to jump to the feed. According to that report, the officer looked through the CCTV footage from Target with her, and she spotted a child and woman and claimed it was her. He disappeared between a Target corridor and the mall after they were separated. The mall was remodeled from an enclosed mall to a strip mall a few years ago. I remember hearing about this when I was young and thinking the whole thing seemed like an elaborate cover up by the mom and boyfriend. im not trying to debunk this, just wondering how much of an indicator it could be. It's not suspicious, by itself. I believe this was right before or after Susan Smith pulled her stunt in SC too. Do you know where you read that D'wan was last with his mother in that Target/mall corridor? Replies analysing and speculating over the mystery and possible explanations are encouraged. Did she get money from donors after his disappearance? There have been some things that look like breakthroughs but were unrelated to the case. Small world. What else was going on in her life at the time? I dunno about anyone else's experience, but that's a really small shoe size. edit: derp!

In the official police report, he is said to have gone missing in front of Kay-Bee Toys, which is on the complete other side of the mall from Target. Very sad situation. Just wanted to add some write-ups to aid in the discussion. Here is the Charley Project page- mostly the same information as article, with added age progression and the interesting detail that the 4-year-old boy had a life insurance policy! So she couldn't kill him before moving back to Michigan; Btw, It was so sick she used racism and Susan Smith' case to get away with being charged. D’Wan Sims was reported missing on December 11, 1994 at the Wonderland Mall in Livonia. Livonia Police Captain Ronald Taig, who was working at the department when the investigation into D’wans’ whereabouts first became national news, confirmed that “an individual came in on December 11, which just happened to be the 25th anniversary of D’Wan being missing. While Cash has submitted his DNA to the police for testing, Taig added that he found it a little strange that he posted about the investigation on Facebook. Forgot the link: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/s/sims_dwan.html. There's no way the mom didn't do it. That would be more likely to be a coincidence than something else. Initially she said that D'wan asked to buy a videotape at Target, but that she told her son she didn't have enough money and that they could go across the mall to Lady Foot Locker where D'wan's grandma worked to ask her for money to buy a video. I find it hard to believe that the mom would choose the mall her mom works at for a fake crime scene. It's likely Dwanna (the mother) arrived at the mall without DWan and 30-60 minutes after she said she arrived. D'Wan has never been heard from again. Nothing was uncovered and again, I don't think he ever made it to the mall that day. As for the failing two polygraphs, it could be that she was really stressing out and such emotions are liable to cause polygraphs to give inaccurate readings. Submissions should outline a mystery and provide a link to a more detailed review of the case such as a Wiki article or news report. Grandma took out a life policy on the boy before the [staged] kidnapping. Feel free to send a message if you have any comment: Your email address will not be published. "Investigators administered two polygraph tests to Dwanna shortly after Sims disappeare and she failed both of the attempts." Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts, http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/s/sims_dwan.html. I grew up about an hour from there and remember when it happened. It's not relevant since it wasn't D'wan, but I just found that weird. Was it the best alibi she could come up with as to why her son was gone? Four-year-old D'Wan's mother, Dwanna Harris told authorities that he disappeared while shopping with her at The Wonderland Mall in Livonia, Michigan on December 11, 1994. Police reached out to the mother to obtain DNA for a test, but it’s unclear if she will cooperate. Four-year-old D'Wan's mother, Dwanna Harris told authorities that he disappeared while shopping with her at The Wonderland Mall in Livonia, Michigan on December 11, 1994. I will hope against the odds he's alive and with better people. Lots of people hoped his body would be found at that point. Of course she could have left to check for her child just outside the mall and re-entered, so maybe that explains that. They think that, at the very least, his mother knows more about his disappearance than she is letting on. Again, the community generally finds that highly suspect-- what kind of person is in the mood to get married while their baby is missing? I just have to wonder where he is. 4-year-old D'Wan's mother, Dwanna Harris told authorities that he disappeared while shopping with her at The Wonderland Mall in Livonia, Michigan on December 11, 1994. However, I was under the impression that they had video of her entering the mall alone (implying that D'wan was never there to start with). hmmm. Edit: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/s/sims_dwan.html Wanted to add another link with a little more info. She said she was walking and talking with him and then noticed he was missing. Press J to jump to the feed. She was seen on CCTV footage fron the mall, but not him. D'Wan has never been heard from again. If I could paraphrase D'Wanna "they arent looking for a little black boy in a white city". I am not sure I would identify myself very well on some low quality footage.

Four-year-old D'Wan's mother, Dwanna Harris told authorities that he disappeared while shopping with her at The Wonderland Mall in Livonia, Michigan on December 11, 1994. Dwanna hired a criminal defense lawyer but no charges were ever filed. I am an attorney who worked near there and lived in the extended area, at the time. Of course Occam's Razor suggests she probably killed the child herself, however it seems odd to do that by going to a place she probably knew had cameras in it and then trying to paint her child as being abducted.
