Quanell X has told local affiliate KHOU 11 that he is no longer representing Brittany Bowens, the mother of missing 4-year-old Maleah Davis.
Quanell says he stopped working with Bowens because he believes she was not being completely truthful about her daughter’s disappearance.
The news comes two weeks after the pair appeared on KHOU in a sit-down interview. Bowens said in the May 17 interview that she could hardly eat or sleep since her daughter’s disappearance.
“It’s like my mind and my spirit can’t rest,” Bowens said. “All I can do is pray and give it to God. That’s all I can do.”
Bowens’ ex-fiance, Derion Vence is currently behind bars on a charge of tampering with a corpse.
Davis, who has been missing for nearly a month, was last seen with her stepfather and younger brother on April 30. Investigators do not believe the child is alive yet are continuing to search for her body.
