Suwannee Valley Unsolved continues to keep the death of 2-year-old Roshanda McGuire and disappearance of her mother, Detra Renvictoria McGuire, before the public 34 years after the incident occurred.
The incident happened on Nov. 2, 1988, and Suwannee Valley Unsolved sent out information on the case in the hopes that someone will step forward with more information.
The case started when a Lake Butler truck driver found the body of Roshanda in the middle of I-10 near the US 441 exit. The child had been thrown from a moving vehicle, according to the report, and the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office linked the body to a missing person’s report the next day for Detra and her two-year-old daughter.
Law enforcement began searching for the mother and found her vehicle, a black 1988 Nissan Sentra 2-door, on Nov. 4 in southern Columbia County at L&G Truckstop in Ellisville. According to a press release by Suwannee Valley Unsolved, suspicion fell on Detra’s boyfriend after questioning and a failed polygraph.
However, police have never found Detra, and no one has been charged for the death of Roshanda.
