An affidavit for a search warrant in the case of missing Memphis, Tenn. baby, 7-week old Aniston Walker, reveals items investigators removed from the child’s home while attempting to determine what happened to her, according to a Jan. 16, 2014 WMCTV report.
Aniston was reported missing by her father, Tramond Chitman – who reportedly does not live in the home – on Jan. 9, sometime after Walker returned to the residence.
The affidavit obtained by WMCTV indicates that Walker told police she found no sign of a break-in or forced entry into the home upon her return.
It also indicates investigators searched Walker’s residence and vehicle for “Human remains, DNA evidence, trace evidence, blood evidence, to include blood spatter, and bloody clothing, blunt objects, cutting objects, and instruments of strangulation and medication bottles contrary to the laws of Tennessee, which is needed in the investigation of the crime of First Degree Murder…”
WMCTV reports that investigators removed papers, receipts, a baby blanket, a baby jumper, and a pacifier from Aniston’s house, according to a return on the search warrant.
According to the report, investigators also removed diaper rash cream, diapers, a backpack, a bag of plastic gloves, a tube of Carmex, baby oil, toys, a first-aid kit, and a bottle of bug repellent from Walker’s car.
The quest to find Aniston was called off Jan. 11 because police announced they have made an exhaustive search of where the child could be and “have no other obvious places to look” for her, according to WREG.
Walker has been charged with aggravated child abuse and is behind bars on $500,000 bond. She is due back in court on Jan. 21.
