Small Body Found In Trash, Foul Play Could Be Factor

Authorities have not yet positively identified the remains of a male child found near Churchill Downs over the weekend, but that could come within two days, an official with the Jefferson County Coroner's office said. Deputy coroner Gayle Norris said authorities hoped to make a positive identification on the body within the next two days.

Louisville police on Saturday found the body of a small male in
the same neighborhood in which 4-year-old Cesar "Ivan"
Aguilar-Cano was last seen on June 29.

Norris said authorities were looking at a "homicide of unknown
means."

The body was found inside a bag in a city garbage truck Saturday
morning, Norris said. Trash workers discovered the body in the
truck while at the corner of 3rd St. and Central Ave., one block
from Churchill Downs.

At a press conference on Saturday, Metro Police Chief Robert
White said that foul play could be suspected.

Police and volunteers had searched the neighborhood daily since
the boy's disappearance. And his family offered a $5,000 reward and said it would bypass the police in order to get information about
the boy's whereabouts.

    Foul play could be expected. Do they think the poor little guy climbed in the bag himself? This is so sad.
