BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — The Birmingham Police Department has reported a significant development in a missing person case with the arrest of Ledarius “Tre” Cash, 30, after human remains were found in his backyard. This arrest is connected to the investigation of his father, Donald Cash, 52, who was reported missing and later deemed a critical missing person.

The case intensified late in October when Donald Cash’s status was upgraded to a critical missing person by the Birmingham Police Department, following revelations that suggested he might be in danger. Further deepening concerns, Cash’s truck was located a week later.

On November 6, detectives executed a search warrant at a property on Brighton Road’s 1400 block. Their attention was drawn to a recently disturbed area in the backyard, covered with fresh compost and topsoil.

A cadaver dog brought to the scene signaled an alert at the suspicious site, leading to an excavation that uncovered skeletal remains. The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office verified these remains as human on November 7, and an autopsy later determined the victim had suffered a gunshot wound.

On November 15, the police arrested Ledarius “Tre” Cash on charges of abusing a corpse. The investigation traced the shallow grave discovered at Tre Cash’s residence, which is believed to contain the remains of his father, though positive identification is pending.

Charging documents against Tre Cash accuse him of knowingly and willfully abusing what is believed to be his father’s corpse, including allegations of burning, dismembering, and improper burial. The ongoing investigation continues to unravel the circumstances surrounding this harrowing discovery, leaving the community in shock and seeking answers.
