Alezauna Carter

The body of an unidentified ‘woman’ who was shot in the face and discovered in a Philadelphia apartment on April 18 has been identified as a 12-year-old girl who vanished in October.

Alezauna Carter, known to family and friends as Libby, vanished in October 2020. In April, police found the body of an unidentified young girl, shot in the mouth, in an apartment less than 20 miles away from where Libby was last seen.

They had been called to the scene by someone who heard gunshots.

Initially, cops said the body belonged to an unidentified 20-year-old woman but on Wednesday, they told Libby’s family it was her.

It’s unclear how they made the identification.
