REMAINS of a child have been found in the search for Oklahoma four-year-old Athena Brownfield.

Little Athena was allegedly beaten to death on Christmas Day by her caretaker, Ivon Adams, who was arrested on one count of child neglect in the case on Thursday.

The child was reported missing on January 10th after a postal carrier found her five-year-old sister, Adina, unsupervised outside the family’s home in Cyril, Oklahoma. Authorities quickly launched a search for Athena and interviewed one of the girls’ caregivers, Alysia Adams – who is not the biological mom of the girls but was referred to as “mom” by Adina.

According to court docs, Alysia reportedly confessed to police on Thursday that her estranged husband, Ivon, beat Athena to death on December 25th and “held her up by her arms.”

The report, obtained by KSWO, claims that Athena “was not moving and her eyes were barely open.

“He then laid her on the ground and punched her at least three more times in the chest. [Athena] never moved after that,” court docs added.
