Shaq Pays For Slain Girl’s Funeral


shaq-cavsBasketball star Shaquille O’Neal paid for the funeral of a five-year-old North Carolina girl after being moved by national news coverage of the case of Shaniya Davis, who police say was kidnapped and killed.

The Cleveland Cavaliers player was touched by the stories he saw and got in touch with the family to see what he could do to help. “I was sitting at home watching it on the news and the story brought a tear to my eye,” O’Neal told the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper.


The girl’s mother, Antionette Davis, is charged with human trafficking and child abuse involving prostitution.

This is definitely a good look on Shaq’s part.  A good deed indeed.
