Sylvester Turner wins re-election as Houston Mayor

Houston’s incumbent mayor won a second term on Saturday night, holding off a millionaire trial lawyer whose previous support of President Donald Trump had become one of the main campaign issues.

Mayor Sylvester Turner defeated Tony Buzbee during Saturday’s runoff election. Unofficial results released by the Harris County Clerk’s Office on Sunday morning show Turner capturing just over 56% of the vote. More than 200,000 votes were cast.

Mayor Turner said he accomplished a lot in his first four years, but says there's a lot more to be done in Houston.

"And that’s why we asked you for a second term," he said.

While talking to supporters, Mayor Turner said everyone needs to work together to make the city safer, saying it's "not just the responsibility of 5,300 police officers. Making our city safe is all of our responsibility."

"We have to make sure that we are patrolling our own streets, what goes on in our own homes, what’s happening in our own neighborhoods," he said. "So I want to say to our 5,300 police officers and those that will be added – we stand with you, we uplift you, we pray for you and we 100 percent support you every single day."

Mayor Turner will be sworn in with other elected officials on January 2.

Remains found in Arkansas confirmed to be missing 4-year-old Maleah Davis

Remains found in Arkansas are confirmed to belong to 4-year-old Maleah Davis, a Houston girl who had been missing for one month, officials with the Harris County Institute of Forensic Scientists said Monday.

The cause and manner of her death are pending.

Community activist Quanell X said Maleah's mother's ex-fiance, Derion Vence, confessed to dumping the 4-year-old's body in Arkansas, ABC Houston station KTRK reported on Friday.

Vence, who was caring for Maleah while her mother was away, had told police the little girl was abducted by three men, including one who knocked him out during a carjacking.

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo, however, quickly said detectives didn't believe his story.

Investigators found the family's car in Missouri City, Texas, and authorities said cadaver-sniffing dogs detected the scent of human remains inside.

Houston detectives then rushed to Arkansas, where remains were found in a garbage bag on Friday, said police.

"We are all saddened by the confirmation of the identification of the remains," Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said in a statement on Monday. "However, we are heartened by the fact this sweet child can now receive the proper burial she deserved."

The chief vowed that police and prosecutors will work "to ensure the person(s) responsible for her death, and the attempted cover-up of her death, are held accountable to the fullest extent of the law."
