Medical Conditions According to her family, Daisja was born prematurely and has medical problems as a result.

Distinguishing Characteristics African-American female. Brown hair, brown eyes.

Creagh, who was six months pregnant at the time, stated a man came into the apartment at approximately 11:40 p.m. and tried to sexually assault her. She fought him off and he fled, taking Daisja as he went. Creagh was unable to provide a description of the assailant.

The family was in the process of moving at the time, to another apartment seven miles away in the 18900 block of Marsh Lane. Daisja's father, Alandus Kjeman Weaver, wasn't in the apartment when the alleged abduction occured; he had taken some of their belongings to the new apartment. Photos of Alandus and Creagh are posted with this case summary.

Police stated Daisja's parents gave conflicting and changing stories about their daughter's disappearance, and as a result an Amber Alert wasn't issued for twelve hours after the alleged kidnapping took place. Creagh soon recanted her story.

On June 15, Alandus was arrested and charged with tampering with physical evidence, and a few days later Creigh was arrested on the same charge. Investigators stated they had reason to believe Daisja had not been kidnapped by a stranger but was in fact murdered by her father.

According to court documents, Creagh left the baby in his care on June 8 while she was at work. When he came to pick her up at her job at 9:00 p.m., Daisja wasn't with him and he said he'd given her a bath and left her home alone.

When Creagh and Alandus arrived at their new apartment on Marsh Lane, Daisja was lying on the floor, naked, wrapped in a towel. Her body was cold, she wasn't breathing and she had no heartbeat. She also had several bruises on her face, back and abdomen. Creagh made unsuccessful attempts to revive Daisja and asked Alandus what happened, and he became violent and threatening and refused to answer.

He told her they should make up a story about Daisja being kidnapped, and the next day after Creagh finished work, she and Alandus went to Lewisville Lake. Alandus threw the infant's body, tied to a sandbag, off the Interstate 35 bridge. Alandus punched Creagh several times to make it look like a kidnapper assaulted her.

Creagh said she lied earlier because she was afraid of Alandus. She claims she had been a longtime victim of his abuse.

Alandus at first maintained he was innocent of involvement in Daisja's disappearance and that the baby was alive. On July 2, he changed his story and said he had accidentally drowned his daughter while bathing her in the kitchen sink. He took police to the Interstate 35 bridge to show them the exact spot where he'd thrown Daisja's body over the rail

He was then charged with capital murder. This charge was later withdrawn and he was charged with felony murder.

At Alandus's trial in the spring of 2010, he changed his story again and blamed Creagh for Daisja's death. Alandus stated Creagh smothered the infant and then threw her body in the creek behind their apartment. The jury disbelieved his account, however; he was convicted of felony murder and sentenced to life in prison.

Police have made several searches of Lewisville Lake looking for the child's corpse, but found nothing, and they don't plan to search further. The lake is full of debris and visibility underwater is very poor.

Foul play is suspected in Daisja's disappearance due to the circumstances involved.
