Authorities believe the body of missing 2-year-old Nadia Lee has been located. The body of a little girl was found in the Vince Bayou in Pasadena, Texas on March 20, 2023. Nadia Lee is the daughter of Nancy Reed and Jyron Charles Lee of Pasadena.

On October 18, 2022, officers responded to a Clear Lake hotel for an assault call. When they arrived, they found 22-year-old Nancy Reed unresponsive. The couple's 1-year-old and 3-year-old children were present. Jyron told authorities that he placed Nancy in a chokehold to "prevent her from injuring their children," police issued in a public statement.

Nancy was taken to a local hospital, where medical personnel pronounced her dead. Her toddler children witnessed the murder of their mother. CPS took the children into custody and Nadia's father, 26-year-old Jyron Charles Lee, was charged with the capital murder of their mother, 22-year-old Nancy Reed, on October 19, 2022.

During the investigation into the murder of Nancy, authorities realized Nadia was missing, they began searching for the toddler and started an investigation into her disappearance. Jyron told authorities that he took the trash out and when he returned, Nadia was gone.

Officials searched his home in the 300 block of South Richey in Pasadena. They found pictures of the little girl on his cell phone lying face down, with vomit and blood around her mouth. They found Google searches on the phone for "Is whooping your child a sin," "In the Bible, is it a sin not to spank a misbehaving child?" and "How long it takes for a dead body to smell."

In December 2022 authorities concluded Nadia was deceased, even though her body had not been found, and charged Jyron with capital murder in the death of Nadia Lee.

Then, on March 20, 2022, the remains of a little girl were found in the Vince Bayou. Authorities believe the remains are of Nadia Lee. They are awaiting autopsy results from the medical examiner.
