[Crime Stories with Nancy Grace] Tot Boy Found Dead in ‘Fabulous Vegas’ Suitcase: WHO IS HE?

Investigators say the little boy found inside a suitcase in rural Indiana died from an electrolyte imbalance. The medical examiner says that the imbalance was most likely due to a “viral gastroenteritis” caused by excessive vomiting or diarrhea. State police are still working to identify the boy, believed to be about five years old.

Toxicology tests came back negative and the boy had no severe injuries. Police do not believe the boy was alive when he was placed inside the suitcase.  A mushroom hunter found the hardshell suitcase,  which features the famous “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign.

The little boy is described as just under 4 feet tall and about 40 pounds, with a slim build and a short haircut. Indiana State Police have set up a national tip line at (888) 437-6432.
