Dynasty Myles‘ body was found inside of an abandoned home in Detroit last week. She had been shot point blank range in the head. Her stepmother, Tara Paymon, was tasked with identifying the body. “It’s horrible the feeling, the hurt, the pain, the loss,” Paymon. “It’s unexplainable. You can’t explain it.”
“To me, you only see stuff like this in TV shows, she added. “You would never think it would be close to home.”
As NewsOne previously reported, Myles dropped off her six-year-old daughter with her father and stepmother at their Southfield home on New Year’s Day. That was the last time anyone from her family saw her alive. Though she did call that night around 9 a.m. to say she would drop off some clothing for her daughter the next morning.
She never showed up.

After a missing persons report was filed, police found her vehicle out outside of a restaurant in Dearborn, a suburb of Detroit. Surveillance video shows her getting into a silver, late model Dodge Durango. Sources tell Fox 2 News that Myles knew the man inside of the vehicle. The man had been robbed earlier that week and he may have believed that Myles has something to do with it. Police say that the man took her to an unknown location, shot her execution style in the back of the head and dumped her inside of an abandoned house.
Myles’ family has been hit hard by her death but Paymon says that the toughest part was telling her 6-year-old daughter that her mother is gone.
“She looks just like her,” Paymond said. “To know this little girl is going to grow up without her mother, I mean that’s horrible.
Myles’ family has set up a fund to cover her funeral expenses and anything left over will go to support her daughter. Donations can be made to the Dynasty Myles Memorial Fund at any Bank of America location.
