Person of Interest Identified in Louisville Boy's Murder

Louisville police have been looking for the person who killed little Cesar Ivan Aguilar-Cano.

Late Wednesday afternoon, new information materialized in the case that may shed some light on what happened to the 4-year-old boy.
The new information is coming from a search warrant obtained by TV stations in Louisville, a search warrant police say they weren't supposed to have.

The warrant reportedly talks about a person of interest in the case and details how Louisville police searched the man's home; a 46 year-old registered sex offender.

The man lives in the same apartment complex the 4 year-old boy disappeared from and near where the boy's body was found.

The report says specially trained dogs got a hit essentially smelling a strong odor from the man's apartment on Saturday, the day the boy's body was found.

Reports out of Louisville say detectives have asked for photographs, blood samples, semen and saliva samples from the man.

They also say the man was cooperating with police when the boy's body was first found, although that appears to have stopped. Police won't call the man a suspect only calling him a person of interest.

The search warrant obtained in Louisville does say there's probably cause to believe the 46 year-old convicted sex offender committed the crime.

It also apparently details more about how the boy was discovered in a garbage truck wearing only a shirt and nothing else.

Police have not released how the boy was murder or if he was sexually abused.

    Bev, I think they're saying that the L'ville tv stations weren't supposed to have the police search warrant.

    With the state police sex registry, did they not know that a sex offender lived in the same area as this innocent child? Why did they not do something as soon as he went missing? Now there is another deffenseless child dead, and everyone is saying "Why didn't we do something to prevent this?" Lock then up, throw away the key, and cut it off, with the first offence. Don't wait for then to do it again. Not everyone deserves another chance. Cesar isn't going to get one. Why did this man?

    This story just makes me so sick to my stomach. I have a 2 year old son and can't even imagine anyone harming him nor do I ever let him out of my sight. I agree that these Sex Offenders need to be put to death. No jail time, just give them the death penalty! Everyone needs to speak out louder about this seemingly growing epidemic. I just made a contribution to Protect.Org, it's the least I can do for now. My condolences to the family.

    I think if the amber alert was issued on t.v. and not Paris Hilton or the UK b-ball player being robbed. Instead they had rather take about stuiped (edited) like that and they say that there was not enough information for them to make alead. But know that the little boy is dead and can't defend is self put your self in that little boys place.He had know one there to help him while that sick son-of-b***h was doing that to him everwho did this needs to killed.

    Why wasn't this given national coverage? I am tired of watching Paris Hilton going to jail. Why wasn't an amber alert issued immediatiely? This beautiful boy may still be with us if this had gotten the attention it deserved. I don't know how these sickos are even allowed back into society. Things will never change until everyone decent human being writes their congressmen and senators. If enough people did this I guarantee stiffer laws would be mandated.

    Until the laws in this country get stiff enough to deture all crimes our crime rates are going to climb. All areas of law from the policeman to the President need to make stifers laws. They need to in order to protect our children even our adults from SEX offenders. Parents have to teach our children and keep close watch on them but we CAN NOT put them in glass boxes and never sleep watching them. When a SEX offender does this once he/she wil never stop doing it until the day they leave this earth they have no control over it. So the only solution is to make laws so they are never on the streets again one way or another. So you say what about the criminals family who raised this person you had to see red flags as they grew up DO something for your child before they commit this crime so they won't. THE VICTIMS FAMILY SUFFERS THE MOST.

    Let me get this right, a KNOWN Child Molester living in the same apartment complex as the Missing Child, isn't a suspect from the very beginning. Many days later, the police have a warrent, they aren't suppose to have, and a dog hits on a strong smell. Something isn't right here. The molester's residence should have been the first place checked after the child was reported missing. Why did the police need to wait over a week to check this problem out. Someone needs to be protecting our children. Evidently, laws are in place to protect molesters but not our children. Enough is Enough.

    Once again a sex offender has been identified as living near a small child who ultimately ended up dead. Why do we allow sex offenders to walk the streets once they have been covicted. I agree with those who believe they should be put to death. That would stop the sickness--which I believe is not a sickness but a pure meanness. Why do we not respect our children? Look at the missing children, the dead children, dead at the hands of not only sex offenders but family members - boyfriends, girlfriends,--mean hearted invididuals who do not care for children. Who do children have protecting them? Social Services - who allow too many to slip through the cracks and end up dying. Why? Shouldn't we as individuals have the responsibility to protect those innocent children? We are admonished to do so, yet, we turn our heads to things that we should take a stand on. We need to start by having sex offenders taken off of the streets first, then chemically castrated thereafter, so the innocent can live. I believe that anyone who commits a sex crime should loose their ability to ever engage in sex again. That would stop the sickos!!!! (Men or women)

    in my neighborhood there are at least 4 sex offenders (known and registered) but just because they are registered dont make them safe people to be around. and guess what? there is a school within 1000 yards of all 4 of them. And a home for the mentally slow next door to one of the offenders. Not a good situation if you ask me. The only answer to sex offender problems is immediate deatha nd let them deal with their maker.

    I agree! These sex offenders who prey on innocent children should be executed immediately! The problem is these greedy lawyers get them off or out of jail. Why don't we start locking up the lawyers (all but public denfers who have no choice) if the person they help get out of jail committs another crime? That way lawyers won't be so quick to get a guilty person out of jail! But that's not going to happen, you know why? Because most of our legislators are lawyers! I agree with what Ross Periot said, give the lawyers in American $500,000.00 to stop practicing law and this country will be better off. There is no justice left in AMERICA...the home of the free...including those who kill children!
