Body Found Is That Of Missing Louisville Boy

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A body found in a garbage truck over the weekend was that of a missing 4-year-old boy, a coroner said Monday.

Cezar "Ivan" Aguilar-Cano was the victim of a homicide, Jefferson County Coroner Ron Holmes said.

Aguilar-Cano was last seen June 29, playing outside his family's apartment building near Churchill Downs.

His body was found Saturday in the same neighborhood where he went missing. Trash workers discovered the body in the truck one
block from Churchill Downs.

Police and volunteers had searched the neighborhood since the boy's disappearance. The boy's family is not currently the focus of the investigation, Assistant Police Chief Tim Emington said.

No arrest had been made, he said.

    I seen on the news this evening Ivans parents, they said in their home country children play outside alone all the time.They are in America now, where we have all kinds of cruel hearted people.I cant see how anyone could harm a child. I hope they punish who ever done it severity. May God Bless this family.

    My heart goes out to this family.I have been praying for them every since I heard about the little boy was missing. I will not be so bitterly cold and mean spirited as to say I do not feel sorry for the family. I do not walk in their shoes and "we" don't know what they are going through. What makes some of us so almighty that we can judge these people. They are human and not only do I feel sorry for them my heart goes out to them. I will be praying for them and I think other people that are so bitterly cold hearted may need a prayer too. I will be praying for all of you.

    Everyone says their hearts go out to the family. I don't feel sorry for them this child was repeatedly left alone to wander around outside. He was 4 years old, he should not have been left outside alone for any reason. The parents should be brought up on charges of child neglect. I don't care if they are hispanic and aren't from this country. Either learn to parent or take their children away. I have seen this quite a few times in the hispanic community where children are left alone and wandering around at the age of 2. Of course someone evil is going to hurt this child if given the opportunity and the opportunity was there multiple times.

    Why was a four year old boy out playing in an apartment building without an adult to start with? I have two children, and would have never let either of them out like that. I realize we can't be with them all the time, but we need to guard them as much as possible.

    Yeah Jessica I think you're right, but that was back when the punishment fit the crime, they couldn't cry that they were sick and some idiot would move a mountain and a river to save their sorry excuses.

    it's so sad that someone could be capable of hurting an innocent child and then tossing his body into the trash. i normally don't support the death penalty--but anyone capable of such a heinous crime should be eradicated from society. this is pure evil.

    If the sick people who commit these crimes were left in jail our children would be a lot safer. Give them some kind of painful punishment instead of a few weeks in jail and letting them go. Maybe they would think twice before harming an innocent child. Our children need to be safe when they play.

    This is so sad and my heart goes out to the family. I will pray they find peace and comfort somehow through this senseless tragedy. This child deserved to grow up and find happiness. His life was cut way too short for reasons we will never know. What is wrong with this world that we must find ourselves doing horrific things to innocent children? Nothing is safe anymore

    It is rampant. I was talking with my boss the other day who is middle aged (50's) about how I was moving into a new house and I had checked the sex offender registry because I have a 7 year old daughter. He said, 'you know, it must be just awful raising a kid these days'. It's true. It is unbelievable the safeguards we parents must take just to live a simple life. God help us all.

    This is so sad, I'm praying for the family and this community. Who ever did it better kill themselves or turn theirselves in. Why would they take the life of a 4 year-old boy. What does he got to offer he just probably learned his ABC's. This little fellow was cute why would someone harm him and the only thing he was doing was playing. This is to the person that did it: You did a wrong thing to a helpless little boy. You better turn yourself in or we our going to find you. I don't think the family had have anything to do with it. It was somebody uin the neighborhood. His mama probably say hi to this person ever morning. R.I.P Cezar Ivan Aguilar-Cano we will find the people or person in charge of doing this. You just rest in peace and play in heavan
