Family of woman found dead in Fairfield speaks to CBS42

FAIRFIELD, Ala. (WIAT) — Michelle Monroe Stewart is still coming to grips with the loss of her daughter, Megan.

The 22-year-old’s body was found burning behind a home in the 500 block of 40th Street in Fairfield on April 19.

“This is so heinous. I would not want this to happen to anybody else,” Stewart said.

The whole family has taken Megan’s death extremely hard, but Stewart says Megan’s 11-year-old sister, Corey, seems to be feeling it the worst.

“Since this has happened, she’s not left Megan’s room. She has slept in Megan’s bed,” Stewart said.

Kenneth Childers and Nathaniel Fortune have been charged with abuse of a corpse for burning her body.

Fairfield Police Chief Leon Davis says this is something he’s never seen or wants to see again.

“It seems like these people didn’t have respect for life itself,” Davis said. “It’s beyond words to me.”

Stewart says there is nothing she wants to say to the two men behind bars right now, but she does wish their families peace with what happened.

“I mean, I hurt for those families, and I know, I know that may sound, I mean how could you hurt for those families? But I do,” Stewart said.

Chief Davis says other charges may be forthcoming in the investigation, but the family and his investigators are still looking for more information.

Anyone who knows anything about Megan’s death is asked to call the Fairfield Police Department at (205) 786-4111.
