Father Wants Answers in Bizarre Death

COLUMBUS -- The father of a woman found dead off Wildwood Avenue earlier this week is looking for answers.
Daviena Clay, 22, was found dead Tuesday night. A source said her eyes were duct-taped shut. Police initially said she may have died as part of a Satanic ritual after a woman called 911 saying someone wanted to sacrifice her to the devil. Investigators now say that's not what happened.
"Something happened to my child," said Ricardo Clay, Daivena's father. "I love my daughter. I was with her Tuesday, the night it happened. She wasn't gone from me more than two hours before it happened and I need to know why."
Two people were picked up by police Wednesday at a house off Parsons Avenue. Police say those people were at the house on Wildwood the night Daivena died.
They were questioned for several hours and later released.
Clay said his daughter was a proud mother of four children. He said she was excited to move to Kentucky later this month to be closer to family.
"This ain't a child that would just kill their self or put herself in a predicament where she would get hurt," he said. "Someone did something to her."
Police are waiting for the results of toxicology reports to come back to get a better idea what may have happened to her.
