Avantae Deven of Fayetteville, NC, Accused of Abusing and Killing Adopted Siblings Blake and London Deven, Faces Capital Punishment

In a chilling revelation, a North Carolina mother, Avantae Deven, now faces the possibility of the death penalty following the discovery of partial remains of her adopted children, Blake and London Deven, in a metal burn barrel behind her home.

The siblings, Blake and London Deven, had not been seen for an extended period, yet their absence was never reported by their adoptive mother.

Avantae Deven appeared before District Court Judge Caitlin Evans in Cumberland County Court, charged with first-degree murder, concealment of death, kidnapping, and felony child abuse.

She remains incarcerated without bond at the Cumberland County Detention Center.

Authorities made a horrific discovery in April when they found partial human remains in a metal burn barrel during a search of Deven’s residence, where the siblings were believed to have lived.

Investigators revealed disturbing details suggesting that Blake and London Deven had endured years of torture and physical abuse at the hands of their adoptive mother.

Reports indicated neglect, starvation, and severe mistreatment.

Cumberland County District Attorney Billy West expressed profound shock at the severity of the allegations, describing them as among the worst he has encountered in his career.

Children previously in Deven’s care recounted harrowing experiences of abuse and neglect to authorities, shedding light on the horrific treatment suffered by their siblings.

Community and Legal Responses

The case has sparked widespread outrage and scrutiny, with ongoing investigations focusing on uncovering further details about the tragic fate of Blake and London Deven.

Seeking Justice

As legal proceedings continue, the community awaits justice for the two young victims, whose lives were cut short under circumstances that continue to shock and appall.
