Tampa Mother Who Dropped Daughter In River To Remain In Jail

Tampa Mother Who Dropped Daughter In River To Remain In Jail”

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office issued a statement Friday saying in June and July it investigated 26-year-old Shakayla Denson's treatment of her daughter, Je'Hyrah Daniels, but found no signs of maltreatment, abuse, or neglect. About halfway across the river, witnesses said she tossed the child into the water and then started wading out. "And I walked up to the diver and I said to him, 'Well how old do you think she was?' and he looked at me and he said, 'She's the same age as my child'".

According to Chief Brian Dugan, a witness called police to report seeing a child being thrown into the river not far from the Columbus Drive bridge, north of downtown. Je'Hyrah was pronounced dead at a hospital.

She was arrested on several charges, including first-degree felony murder in the death of Je'Hyrah.

"It's a completely tragic event", Dugan said.

"Eventually, we just saw the scuba divers out there pulling up with a body", said resident Romano Muniz.

"Witnesses say the child was screaming", Dugan explained. "That's why I say we believe it's her child, but we are trying to piece this whole thing together".

Denson was walking nearby and was arrested. He explained his agency had "limited experiences" with her, and they were still unsure if Denson had any contact with the Florida Department of Children and Families.

The child's name was not released.

A diver pulled her "lifeless" body from the river.

The murder mimics that of a January 2015 case, when an unfit father threw his five-year-old daughter 60 feet off a bridge in Tampa Bay. His trial is set to begin in late September.

Witnesses told police that Denson dragged the screaming girl to the water, waded in until she was shoulder deep and pushed the girl into the current to float away.
