The father arrested for the presumed murder of his son bought an incriminating list of items on the same day Noah McIntosh’s mother last saw him.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Bryce McIntosh was charged last week with first-degree murder and special circumstance murder of torture.
Both of the boy’s parents had been arrested earlier in March on suspicion of child abuse, and were already in custody when McIntosh was charged with Noah’s murder.
Corona police released McIntosh’s arrest warrant, obtained by NBC Los Angeles and KTLA, which shows that Noah’s mother Jillian Marie Godfrey told police she last saw her son on March 4 when she dropped him off at her father’s house. Four days later, Bryce allegedly told her that Noah had gone missing on March 16. When the boy’s mother asked the suspect if he had called the police, McIntosh reportedly answered that he had it all “under control.”
McIntosh had not contacted police about the boy’s disappearance, and when officers went to his home following the mother’s report, the suspect was uncooperative, the arrest warrant states.
Noah’s mother reportedly told investigators that Bryce told her he was going to Home Depot on March 3, and investigators obtained a record of purchases the suspect made on March 4.
From the report:
Detective Taylor stated Bryce purchased two pairs of long cuffed gloves, 24″ bolt cutters, four gallons of muriatic acid, and 1 – 128 oz bottle of drain opener.
Authorities have not yet located Noah’s body or released a possible motive for the presumed murder.
