MACON COUNTY, Ala. (WTVM) - Wednesday marks one year since Aniah Blanchard’s body was found in Macon County.
Blanchard went missing after stopping at a gas station in Auburn Oct. 23. A few days later, a surveillance video was released, pointing to Ibraheem Yazeed as a suspect in her disappearance.
Blanchard was found nearly a month later in a wooded area. Even though there was a memorial for Blanchard, there was never a burial because as part of the investigation, authorities kept her remains for several months.
Blanchard’s family buried her earlier this year.
