Human remains have been found at a Georgia landfill amid a search for a 1-year-old boy who vanished in early October.
According to WSB-TV, investigators found Quinton Simon’s possible remains at a local landfill where he is believed to have been transported to after his body was discarded in a dumpster. Quinton was last seen at his Savannah home on October 5.
The discovery comes the same day as the missing toddler’s mother, Leilani Simon, 22, was arrested for his presumed murder.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Leilani allegedly told cops that her boyfriend was the last person to see the toddler. She allegedly also claimed his biological father took him, but his alibi eliminated him as a suspect.
WSB-TV reported that the remains are being sent to a local lab for positive identification.
