CLEVELAND (AP) — Police in Cleveland are awaiting results of an autopsy on a 3-year-old boy whose 20-year-old mother is being held as a suspect in his slaying.
Police said Camilia Terry was arrested Monday after the body of her son, Emilliano Terry, was found in trash bags at a waste processing site. She initially had reported the child missing from a city park Sunday.
Investigators said Camilia Terry’s story changed during questioning, leading them to suspect that she was involved. FBI agents stopped a garbage truck while searching the neighborhood. That led to the discovery of the body inside trash bags that had been picked up from a garbage bin near the family’s apartment building.
Terry’s two other boys, ages 5 and 5 months, are in the custody of social services.
