Crime Stories with Nancy Grace: Search Continues to ID Tot Boy Found Dead in Fabulous Vegas Suitcase: WHO IS HE?

The little boy found dead in a suitcase has now been laid to rest, in an unmarked grave. The mushroom hunter who found the “Fabulous Vegas” suitcase, Jeff Meredith, says he will not rest until the boy has a name.

Investigators say the child 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 5 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.

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.
