Indiana State Police have released more information regarding the body of the dead child found in Washington County last Saturday.
According to authorities, the little boy was found stuffed inside a hard suitcase with “a distinctive Las Vegas design on its front and back” in a wooded area at the 7000 block of East Holder Road. Although an autopsy was performed, no cause of death was determined. However, toxicology results are still pending.
The autopsy indicated the child is approximately 5 years old. He is described as a black male, approximately four feet tall, with a slender build and short haircut.
Investigators are still working to determine his identity. Although they have already received more than 200 calls regarding the case, he remains unknown.
“Right now that is the number one point of this investigation, to find out who this child is,” Sgt. Carey Huls said during a press conference on Monday. “At this point, we still do not have that information… and he deserves to be heard.”
Anyone with information about this case is urged to call the toll-free Indiana State Police hotline at 1-888-437-6432.
