BREAKING: Emily Glass to be released from jail just days after missing boy Lucas Hernandez’s remains were found

Sedgwick County, Kansas, District Attorney Marc Bennett announced on Wednesday that no additional charges will be filed today against the woman to last see 5-year-old Lucas Hernandez alive. The DA announced the investigation will continue while they await the boy’s toxicology results.

“This morning, investigators wi the the Wichita Police Department presented the investigation of the death of Lucas Hernandez to prosecutors in the office of the District Attorney. No charges are being filed today while investigators continue to follow up on newly-developed leads, and await the results of forensic examination. The autopsy report, in particular, will not be final until the results of the toxicology exam is complete. I appreciate the exhaustive investigation in this case conducted by law enforcement and this office will actively continue to work with law enforcement until the case is resolved. I can’ take questions or comment any further given the ongoing nature of the investigation.”

The Wichita Police Department presented their case to the DA against 27-year-old Emily Glass. Glass, the live-in girlfriend of Lucas’ father, Jonathan Hernandez, was arrested on Thursday for interference/obstruction of law enforcement but is scheduled for release on Wednesday afternoon.
