Medical examiner believes body found in Texas City is missing girl

College Station Police Department

The Galveston County Medical Examiner's Office says a body found in Texas City on Halloween is believed to be that of missing 2-year-old Hazana Anderson, but a DNA test is still pending.

The medical examiner's office says an autopsy of the child recovered from Moses Bayou in Texas City has been completed and the cause of death is pending.

The body of a small child was found on Wednesday. The discovery came just days after two-year-old Hazana Anderson was reported missing from a park in College Station on October 28.

The girl's mother, 21-year-old Tiaundra Kae Christon, was arrested and charged on Monday with child endangerment and false reporting in connection to the case. On Wednesday, Kenny D'Shawn Hewett, a man investigators believe to be Christon's boyfriend, was arrested and charged with tampering or fabricating physical evidence with intent to impair a human corpse.

A DNA test will be performed to identify the child's body.
