Police: Body found likely that of missing Detroit woman
Police found a body early Monday evening believed to be that of a 24-year-old woman who disappeared Friday.
The body was found near Fielding and Clarita on the city’s west side after police received a tip.
A Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office autopsy was expected to identify the corpse, “but based on the clothing description, we’re certain that it’s her,” said Sgt. Cassandra Lewis of the Detroit Police Department.
Kajavia Globe was last seen leaving work around noon Friday in the area of McNichols and Southfield Service Drive.
“Our investigation has enhanced significantly,” Police Chief James Craig said earlier Monday before the body was discovered.
Family members filed a missing persons report Saturday, he said.
“As we recovered her vehicle, there was evidence of foul play,” Craig said.
The gold 2003 Chevrolet Impala was recovered around 6:30 a.m. Monday near Chatham and Fenkell, Craig said.
He said a masked individual took money from Globe’s bank account at a west side ATM.
“We’re processing some video,” Craig said. “The person in the video was masked up.”
Globe’s bank cards were recovered inside her vehicle, Craig said. There has been no known activity on her cellphone, which has not been located.
“The family intimated that it was highly unusual for their daughter to just go missing,” Craig said.
