At first, Nakira tried to convince the police that Daniel Jr. fell from the stairs.

After hearing her new story, the authorities suspected Nakira and searched her property. 

Eventually, they discovered the toddler’s remains under a shed in the backyard.  

Meanwhile, the autopsy report ruled Daniel Jr.’s death a homicide after finding his death caused by blunt force trauma and multiple bone fractures.

Furthermore, according to some news sources, Nakira took her son down, dismembered him, and placed the pieces of his body into the oven.

She continued to cook her child until he was unrecognizable, then stuffed his remains into one of her purses.

Moreover, she buried the remaining evidence of her crime in the backyard.

When all this happened, the husband of Nakira Griner was at work and was unaware of the situation.
