The body was found Monday night Fielding Street, in the area of 7 Mile Road and Evergreen appears to be that of missing 24 year old Kajavia Globe. However, positive identification needs to be confirmed by the medical examiner. Family members filed a missing persons report Saturday, December 12.
The police are stating that there was evidence of foul play in the disappearance of Kajavia Globe. Her vehicle was found abandoned on Chatham Street, near Telegraph Road and Fenkel, early Monday morning, 3 days after she went missing and surveillance video showed a masked man using Globe’s bank card to withdraw cash at an ATM at 7 Mile Road and Telegraph, late Friday afternoon.
Detroit police are working to confirm whether a body found Monday on the city’s west side is that of a missing 24-year-old woman.
The body was found early Monday evening on Fielding Street, in the area of 7 Mile Road and Evergreen. Police and family members were at the scene.
Assistant police chief Steve Dolunt told reporters that though authorities believe the body belongs to Globe, confirmation by the medical examiner is required.

“We’ve got the body of a black female, appears to be in her 20s, in the backyard of this location,” Dolunt said. “At this time, it appears to be our missing [person], we can’t confirm it until the medical examiner gets here. At this time, we cannot confirm the cause of death.”
Earlier Monday, police said there was evidence of foul play in the disappearance of Kajavia Globe.
Globe’s car was found abandoned on Chatham Street, near Telegraph Road and Fenkel, early Monday morning — three days after she went missing.
About two miles from that location, police say surveillance video shows a masked man using Globe’s bank card to withdraw cash at an ATM at 7 Mile Road and Telegraph, late Friday afternoon.
