Devonte Hart’s biological mother breaks her silence after learning devastating news of her children’s deaths

The biological mother of three Black children adopted by an abusive white couple has broken her silence after learning her kids were likely killed last month after one of the women drove the family’s car off a California cliff.

Sherry Davis said she was devastated when she first heard the news, nearly a month after her three biological children, Devonte, Jeremiah and Sierra Davis, died in what was initially thought to be a tragic accident. Devonte, in particular, was the subject of a viral photo of him in a tight embrace with a police officer at a rally for slain Missouri teen Mike Brown in 2014 — a photo his mother had never seen before last Thursday, according to The Oregonian.

Jeremiah’s body was found in the car, along with the bodies of his adopted mothers Sarah and Jennifer Hart, and three other adopted children. Devonte and Sarah are still missing — but are presumed dead, authorities said.
