A Phoenix Police Department detective emailed me about another case and I took the opportunity to ask about Aleacia Stancil. What he told me was unsurprising. Toni Stancil was a crack addict. She reported Aleacia missing after she herself was jailed for something or other. The MP report may have just been a ploy to get out of jail. Then not too many months later, Toni was murdered. The homicide is unsolved. The detective said the case “fell through the cracks” and they’re trying to figure out who “Dee” is and so on, and he hopes Aleacia is being raised by another family.
I can only hope this is true.
