A Kansas City family is seeking more answers after a young Black woman was found dead inside the apartment of a white man that she met online.
29-year-old Asia Maynard was found deceased on Feb. 19 after she went on a date with a man, identified with Isiah Crown by her friends, and reportedly fell that morning. Crown told police that he found her laying down and her body felt stiff but Maynard was not reported missing until the following day. According to the Kansas City Defender, Maynard’s family was informed by police that the mother of four possibly died from natural causes although the results from the toxicology report have yet to be revealed.
“They had said that although they are waiting for the toxicology report they believe it was from natural causes and so there would be no further investigation. And so because there was no further investigation they wouldn’t give us any information on who the man was that she was found with. The information we had from her friends that she went on a date with him was the only reason we got any information. When we decided to post it to social media, that’s how we got information. A lot of people have reached out and said he is *allegedly* responsible for other overdoses and deaths in the community.”
Several people close to Crown claim he is allegedly responsible for causing the deaths of overdoses of people he has hung out with. Additionally, his family is reportedly aware of the case and other incidents after coming forward with the police.
