CHESAPEAKE, Va. -- No one has seen or heard from Quincy Jamar Davis in 11 years.

But this week, Virginia state police confirmed a black trash bag containing his remains was found in the trunk of his own mother, Tonya Slaton.

WTVR reports that an affidavit states Quincy likely died as "the result of some homicidal action."

Police say the last time anyone heard from Quincy was 2004 when he was 12. No missing persons reports were ever filed for him.

Tonya Slaton was pulled over in Hampton for driving with expired tags. When police began to impound her vehicle, they found the trash bag in the trunk along with a strong odor. The body was double-bagged and sealed with duct tape.

They determined the body was that of her son.

A bag of clothes were fund on the trash bag, and there was a large white stain behind the driver's seat. Slaton told police the stain was caused by bleach.

Slaton faces charges of concealment of a dead body.

Police are asking the public for information about Slaton, along with anything known about Quincy, especially during the early 2000s when he was in 7th grade in Virginia Beach.
