Georgia baby found dead in back seat of a car

The Georgia Bureau of Investigations (GBI) is conducting an investigation of a 10-month-old baby girl in the back seat of a car that a man was driving.

GBI was requested by the Greenville Police Department in Meriweather County to conduct a child death investigation of Ayla Reeves, approximately 10 months old.

Preliminary information indicates that at approximately 11:15 a.m., Greenville Police conducted a traffic stop on Cameron Ramon Reese,22, for speeding.  Reese fled the scene, but in the car he was driving, they located the baby, Ayla Reeves, deceased in the back seat of the car.

Information obtained from the initial investigation shows that Reese was keeping the baby when he contacted the baby’s mother, Nikia Reeves,19, and stated that baby Reeves was not breathing.  When Nikia Reeves arrives at a North Depot Street location, she grew suspicious of Cameron Reese’s behavior.

All three individuals exited the home and entered into a car where Nikia Reeves questions Cameron Reece about a mark under the child’s eye.  During the encounter, Cameron Reece pulls out a steak knife and Nikia Reeves jumps out of the vehicle, sustaining severe road rash.

Meriwether Sheriff’s Office receives a stolen baby call.  Reese was tracked by a Department of Corrections canine to the North Depot Street location where he was eventually arrested.

Cameron Ramon Reece has been charged with aggravated assault and concealing the death of another.

A cause and manner of death is pending a GBI autopsy.  This investigation remains active and ongoing.
