The authorities are investigating and have charged his mother with the toddler’s murder.

The investigation, which began in October, lasted five weeks and the authorities had not stopped looking for the child. Evidence led them to a landfill where the toddler’s remains were found after it was believed his mother placed them in a dumpster. For now, the investigation is ongoing.
