Hempstead County Officials are working to rename the Red Lake Road overpass where her body was found to honor her.

The sheriff says the new signs won't cost the county anything, thanks to donations.

If the state approves the change, the signs will read the "Maleah Davis Memorial Bridge."

Many people have created touching tributes to Maleah, including a sculpture, "My Little Pony" casket for her funeral, toys and photos and a Maleah mural at the apartment where she lived.
