Quinton Simon: Four People Arrested Outside Missing Georgia Tot’s Home [Police]

Chatham County Police in Savannah, Georgia, arrested three people Friday and a fourth person Saturday, outside of 1-year-old missing toddler Quinton Simon’s residence.

According to WTOC, the first incident happened Friday Night at a home off Buckhalter Road, where Quinton lived with his family. Police said they had to go the home twice Friday on complaints of disorderly conduct by protesters.

At least three of those protesters were blocking the home in the drive, allegedly preventing the people inside the home from leaving. When the defendants refused to move, they were arrested.

The suspects have been identified as William Garrett, Wanda Boatwright, and John Boatwright.

On Saturday night, Chatham County police arrested a fourth person for allegedly banging on the windows and doors at the home.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Quinton’s mother, Leilani Simon, reported him missing on October 5; she said her current boyfriend saw the child at about 6 a.m. in the family’s Savannah home.

Later, when Simon woke up, Quinton was gone, according to what she told a 911 dispatcher. She made the 911 call shortly after 9:30 a.m., telling the dispatcher she found the door open, although Quinton isn’t able to open the door by himself.

“Thinks someone came in and took him,” the dispatcher told responding officers.

Police launched an extensive search of the area, calling in help from other nearby jurisdictions as well as the FBI. Earlier this month, police said they believed Quinton was deceased and in a landfill, prompting the search.

“We believe he was placed in a specific dumpster at a specific location,” Chatham County Police Chief Jeff Hadley. “I have every belief that we will find his remains here at the landfill.”

“We want justice for Quinton just like everybody else. And we want to find his remains, so we can give him a proper resting place.”

When local media asked Hadley why Simon has not yet been arrested, he said they are still investigating and don’t want to do anything that would jeopardize the case.

“We still have work to do,” Hadley said, adding that Simon is not considered a flight risk. “We still have an investigation to do.”
