As Fox 4 reports, Asia Maynard’s family called police to file a missing person’s report earlier this month after they hadn’t heard from the mother of four in some time. Her sister, Tera Maynard, told the station that Asia was found dead on Feb. 18. As the family shares, police told them that a man she was on a date with reported her death, and that they were informed she “died of natural causes because there was no foul play.”
Cousin Hailie Loomis told the Kansas City Defender that Maynard wasn’t reported dead until Feb. 20, a day after the family had began calling police, and that police had “decided to report her missing and that they had properly identified her and that she was deceased.” Loomis added that KCPD wouldn’t share “any information with us regarding where they found her” or the name of the man who police say found her dead.
“When she got to the funeral home and we viewed her body she had blood in her eyes and her ears and her clothes were saturated with blood,” her mother Denise said.
The case is currently being considered a death investigation and not a homicide, per Fox 4, as the Kansas City Police Department claims there were no signs of foul play at the time of Maynard’s death.
“I want justice done if he did it,” Maynard’s aunt, Rhonda Turner, said. “Please in the name of Jesus, I know God seen everything and we want people to listen to us.”
