Genises Sims, 7, was found dead in the basement of her parent's vacant home in Colorado. Her body was discovered by construction workers on May 14, 2010 in the crawl space of the home. An autopsy could not determine the cause of death or how long the she had been dead before she was discovered. A man hunt went on for her father, Hanif Sims and his girlfriend, Monique Lynch, who rented the home. They were captured a few months later in Nevada and arrested on child abuse resulting in death. It is believed she was severely beaten by her father on December 10, 2008 and receiving no medical attention she died and he buried her in the crawl space two days later. Later they moved out of the home in 2009 leaving it abondoned including Genises' remains.
A funeral and burial was set in her hometown of New Jersey by her biological mother Jopetia Garretson on September 10, 2010.
On June 30, 2011 Monique Lynch was sentenced to 27 years in prison after pleading guilty to child abuse. Hanif Sims trail is expected in October.
Update January 30 2012: Hanif Sims pleaded guilty to child abuse resulting in death of his daughter.
