Zion Foster, 17, of Eastpointe, is believed to be dead, possibly buried in a landfill in Lenox Township, according to Detroit police. Authorities will begin the search on May 31.
Foster was last seen with her cousin Jaylin Brazier, 23, on January 4. Brazier did admit in March that he threw Foster’s body in a dumpster after she died unexpectedly while they were together.
In this case, he was found guilty of lying to authorities and sentenced to 23-48 months in prison. It’s unclear who made the confession that led to the body, Brazier or someone else.
