On Tuesday, the body of a boy of six years was found in a dumpster, one day after the report of him missing reached authorities in the metropolitan area of Seattle.
Seattle Times reported that the boy identified as DayvidPakko was drowned in a bathtub by a male relative 19 years old in Lynnwood, Wash. The unidentified relative is presently in custody of the Snohomish County.
Crime suspect apprehended
It is at the moment unclear if the adult relative was asked to watch the child or the boys mother was away at work or what exactly his relationship with the boy was, Times revealed. It is also uncertain if the 19-year-old boy has admitted to committing the crime. However, there are no other believed suspects identified by the County.
Requests to get a comment was not immediately responded to by the Snohomish County Sheriff’s office from Seattle Times.
The body of the six-year-old was recovered in a trash container near the complex of an apartment around the area of the child’s home in the early hours of the morning (2 am). The boy was said to be mildly autistic and was initially thought to be missing on the evening of Monday.
