Left: Monique Lynch Right: Hanif Sims More »

MONUMENT, Colo. -- New mug shots have been released by police in search of a couple wanted for questioning in the Monument Child Mystery.Reports indicate that the couple is homeless, according to the head of the Los Angeles homeless shelter. Agencies nationwide are searching for Monique Lynch and her boyfriend Hanif Sims.Officers want to talk to the couple about the death of a young girl found buried in a crawl space of a Monument home.Both Sims and Lynch came to Colorado in August of 2008 and rented the home where the body was discovered in September.Neighbors said the couple arrived with a 7-year-old girl, Genesis, and 12-year-old boy, Davon.Neither has been named as suspects in the case, but police are interested in speaking with them about their time in the home."We would like to interview them pertaining to their occupancy at that same residence," said Lt. Lari Sevene, with the El Paso County Sheriff's Office.According to information over the police scanner both Sims and Lynch have active warrants out of New Jersey. A criminal background check in Colorado shows no warrants issued for either Lynch or Sims.Neighbors believe the body is that of the little girl, Genesis, but investigators are still waiting for more information from the coroner before jumping to any conclusions. Neighbors told NEWSCHANNEL 13 that the girl just disappeared one day. "When we asked where did she go? They said, ‘We shipped her off to New Jersey; she was our problem child,'" said Kristen McCollam, a nearby neighbor.A source told TARGET 13 the body was buried under dirt in the crawlspace. A plumber discovered the bodyA local landlord who almost rented a home to the couple said the family just showed up at a home of friends they met on the Internet. "What they did was basically leave in the middle of the night; left food on the stove, left their clothes and tooth brushes, everything that was personal to them, including televisions and computer," said the landlord, who doesn't want to be named.
