Chilling twist in disappearance of Zion Foster, 17, after confession reveals cause of death and leads to 100ft grave

A CHILLING confession has revealed a missing 17-year-old girl's cause of death and led to a 100 feet grave, police claim

Jaylin Brazier, 23, claims his cousin Zion Foster died after the two smoked too much marijuana before he disposed of her body in a dumpster.

Foster's body was later hauled from the dumpster with other trash and now lays 75 to 100 feet below the surface, the prosecutor said.

On January 4, 2022, Zion Foster was last seen after she was picked up from her family's house around 10.45pm to go see her cousin Brazier in Detroit, Dateline reported.

Foster's mother said that she received a text from her daughter at around 1am saying that she was on her way home.

"My phone shows our location. All of my kids' locations are shown," the mother Ciera Milton told Dateline. "Twenty minutes after texting me that she was on her way home, she still wasn't there."

Milton reported her daughter missing the following day.

By January 19, the Detroit Police Department had taken the case and held a press conference where officials identified Brazier as a person of interest.

That evening, Brazier turned himself in for questioning.

After being questioned, Brazier was arraigned in court on January 24 with charges of lying to a peace officer.

At his sentencing, Brazier revealed what happened the night of Foster's death and said he was "not in the right state of mind" during his initial questioning.

"I don't know exactly how she passed or what caused her to pass," Brazier told the judge.

"I just know one minute she was cool, she was fine. She laid back for a minute, and the next thing I know, she's just – she was dead," Brazier said in court. "I don't know what caused it. I did not cause it. I reacted stupidly off of fear and panic like I've never felt before in my life."

"I wish I could take it back. I would have called the ambulance, called her mom," Brazier said. "I wish I could take it back."

After Foster allegedly died, Brazier put her in the trunk of his car and drove her to a dumpster, WDIV reported.

Brazier told police the location of the dumpster, and officials identified the company that hauls from the dumpster to determine where the trash is taken.

The prosecutor said that "her body is, unfortunately, 75-100 feet or more below the surface."

Foster is survived by her mother who is a single parent to six children.

"We will never have closure. As much as I love that family, it's hard to trust family at all, and now my babies are even more isolated because how can I trust family when family is the one who did this?" Ciera said in court.

The judge turned Brazier over to the custody of the Michigan Department of Corrections for a period of 23 months to four years after he admitted to his actions.

“Your failure to be honest and truthful in preventing, I don’t know, maybe preventing certain further pain and suffering from the family, requires punishment,” Judge Servitto said during the sentencing.

“The prison sentence here hardly reflects the injury that you’ve accomplished.”
