Missing Chicago Boy Found Dead

A 4-year-old Chicago boy missing since Wednesday was found dead in a Minneapolis home Sunday, according to WCCO news.
Demond Reed was found in the home where he was staying on the city’s north side. Although no cause of death has been determined by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s office, police are investigating it as a homicide, reported WCCO.
Reed was staying with relatives in Minneapolis, according to ABC 7 news out of Chicago.
Police took a woman, an adult cousin who had been caring for Reed, into custody for questioning but has not yet been charged, reported KSTP Eyewitness 5 news.
A police spokesman, Sgt. William Palmer, said details on the case have been “fairly unclear.?
It was reported that that Reed had been taken from the home, but now it is unclear whether he ever actually left the home, reported WCCO news.
Reed came to Minneapolis for a visit but the stay was extended when his father was arrested Jan. 21 on unrelated charges, reported KSTP news.
