Authorities Find Remains Believed To Be Missing Mariah Woods

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Authorities say they have found the body of a missing 3-year-old North Carolina girl and charged her mother’s boyfriend with hiding her death. 32-year-old Earl Kimrey was arrested late Friday and the girl’s body was found in a creek 25 miles away about 16 hours later. They did not say how Mariah Woods died. Kimrey is currently charged with Concealing of Death, Obstruction of Justice, 2nd Degree Burglary, Felony Larceny, and Possession of Stolen Property. Kimrey is currently being held in the Onslow County Detention Center under a $1,010,000 bond.

The Onslow County Sheriff’s Office announced Saturday night that human remains of a child,cstrongly believed to be that of Mariah Woods, were located during a concentrated search effort in Shelter Creek along Shaw Highway in Pender County. An autopsy will be conducted by the medical examiner’s office to determine cause of death and absolute verification of identity.

Multiple law enforcement agencies and civilian volunteers were instrumental in the search for the missing 3-year-old after a statewide Amber Alert was issued on Monday.

  1. Emily carter says:

    The mom is in on it just as much as he is hell they probably planned it together I wish I could get a hold of both of them

  2. Kelly tom says:

    The mother knows more then she’s letting on.All involved should be put to death.

  3. Becky says:

    Would love to have only 5 min alone with him in a room … he would want to go to prison and hang himself after I finished with him

  4. BIGBOB says:

    He should be found one morning hung with his bed sheets save the state a whole lot of money. And I would not have to watch for 2 years before he goes to trail and state will spend way over 1 million dollars for housing him and for the trail. Then over another million after he goes to court to house him and for appeals he will make. In this case you know the mother had to know something about it also they waiting and will charge her later. Wait and see.

    What a prick!

  6. DH says:

    Young mothers, why do you put your children in these situations? This man has a criminal history, maybe only petty crimes but still….. You brought this thing into you and your child’s life with only your desires in mind. Did you know of his background? If not, why trust him? Most parents when seeking childcare will ask for references and “check out” their reputation first. But when it comes to a boyfriend who says all the right things to make you feel good inside, you turn over your life including your children, as if they are his.
    I am not addressing this case in Jacksonville but to all young mom’s who make the same mistake over and over again.
    If you are a single mom, your children and their safety come first, not your desires.
