A missing 8-year-old homeless girl was spotted in a hotel with the janitor of a Washington, D.C., homeless shelter the day she went missing, according to a report.
Footage from a surveillance camera inside the local hotel shows a little girl believed to be Relisha Tenau Rudd walking down the hallway with her alleged abductor, Kahlil Tatum, 51.
The video, obtained by WRC-TV, was recorded on Feb. 26 — the same day she was last seen at the D.C. Shelter for Families, where she lived with her mother.
Police said last week that they believe Relisha was placed in the care of Tatum, who was working as a janitor for the facility.
But investigators were not aware of the child’s disappearance until March 20 — after school officials told police that Relisha had not attended classes for several days.
Detectives found Tatum’s SUV parked at a Red Roof Inn in Prince George’s County, where they found his wife — Andrea Tatum, 51 — shot to death inside one of the rooms. An arrest warrant for the husband was issued the next day.
