Police find body of Ohio mom missing since March, believe she was slain; no sign of her son

DAYTON — Police have found the body of a southwest Ohio woman who went missing last month and say they are investigating her death as a homicide.

Authorities say 25-year-old Nichelle McKnight’s body was discovered today near the Stillwater River in the Dayton suburb of Harrison Township.

She went missing in March with her four-year-old son.

Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl said the search continues for the boy, but he is presumed dead.

Biehl says police went to a vacant apartment complex near the river after receiving a tip that McKnight’s boyfriend Antwan Anderson frequented the complex.

Anderson died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in a confrontation with police on Monday. They had wanted to question him about the disappearances of McKnight and her son, Zaden.
