Police Find Body of Missing 4-year-old.
The body of a four-year-old who had disappeared for a Minneapolis home was discovered Sunday by the police, reported the Pioneer Press.
Police have been searching for Demond Reed as well as Shawna Williams, 38, since Wednesday when they disappeared from a home in north Minneapolis where Reed lives with relatives, reported the Star Tribune.
"We really, I don't think, have a clue," said Sgt. William Palmer of the Minneapolis Police Department as to why Reed left the home. (Star Tribune)
Reed had been left with relatives since he was brought to Minneapolis by mother his to visit his incarcerated father. Her mother then returned to Chicago, but has since come back to the Twin Cities.
The police are investigating the death as a homicide, but no charges have been filed yet. They did take a woman into questioning but would not say how the woman is related to the boy. The woman Reed left with, Williams, is believed to be an acquaintance of the relatives which Reed had been staying with.
Though it is being investigated as a homicide, the cause of death is still unknown.
"A lot of the details in this case have been fairly unclear," said Palmer. (Pioneer Press)
