A search for a missing 17-month-old girl ended tragically Saturday morning after her body was recovered beneath a toppled pile of laundry inside her grandmother's closet.

The family of little Zyia Turner are calling her death an accident after cadaver dogs unearthed her body hours after an Amber Alert was issued throughout their Detroit community on Friday afternoon.

'We were hoping, just hoping someone had took her,' Ziya’s grandmother Bridget Elam told WXYZ (http://www.wxyz.com/dpp/news/region/detroit/SOURCES-17-month-old-girl-found-dead-under-pile-of-clothes-in-Grandmothers-house)behind tears.

Poor little thing. I hope the least this family does is clean up their home.

The uncle told police he temporarily left the children alone to go to his bedroom before returning to find Zyia missing.

Doesn't take much reading between the lines there...

My guess is that she got caught under something plastic and suffocated. She might have been playing hide and seek with the other kids.

Whenever there is a dead child in Detroit report, I am always relieved when I don't know the names of the people involved. Yet, one of my colleagues in CPS probably came in today to that case on her desk.

Probably won't see this on that TV show about garbage homes.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?!?

I almost commented on that too. It's pretty sick. Telling too, because it sounds like the Uncle is known for being irresponsible, an idiot etc etc. Maybe a murderer too.
