    IN - Jezaih King, 2, Fort Wayne, November 2009

    Police Fear For Missing Boy's SafetyBy Maureen Mespell
    By Peter Ambrose
    December 20, 2010

    FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Investigators are working to unravel the mystery surrounding the disappearance of three local family members.

    But there's a more immediate problem: finding a missing child. Officials say 3 year old Jezaih King has not been seen for 10 months or more. He was only just reported missing for the first time Monday by concerned family members.

    FWPD spokesman Mike Joyner released details late last night, saying "we know that the youngest, the three year old, Jezaih has been missing for several months. We are very concerned that quite possibly he is a victim of foul play or at minimum is in immediate danger."

    Anyone with information about Jezaih should call police at 427-1222. You can also give an anonymous tip by calling CrimeStoppers at 436-7867.

    Jezaih's mother, 31 year old Lathisha Lawson, and his 10 year old sister, Kierra King, were also reported missing yesterday. Family members said the two hadn't been seen since around September or October.

    But shortly after news of their disappearance came out, police located Lawson and King in Fort Wayne. They're now questioning Lawson about Jezaih.

    Police say an Amber Alert wasn't issued in this case because of how long Jezaih has been missing and for how long his sister was missing.

    Officials have not yet elaborated on the circumstances which led to the family members' disappearance, or on the kind of danger they think Jezaih may be in. The investigation is still underway.

    Again, if you have information about Jezaih, call police at 427-1222 or CrimeStoppers at 436-7867.

    FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Investigators discovered the remains of a small child in a home in the 1300 block of Wabash Avenue. An autopsy will be performed to determine the identity of the child. The mother has since been charged on a preliminary charge of Neglect of a Dependent (Class A-Felony).

    This could be Jeziah.

    Fort Wayne Police have arrested the mother of a missing toddler, and the remains of an unidentified small child were found in a home in Fort Wayne.

    31-year-old Latisha Ann Lawson was arrested Tuesday for Neglect of a Dependant. During the course of the investigation police went to a home in the 1300 block of Wabash Avenue, and there they discovered the remains of a small child. An autopsy will be performed to determine the identity, the cause, and manner of death. Lawson's three year old son Jezaih King was reported missing by relatives on Monday. Police were told he was missing for about ten months.://www.wane.com/dpp/news/fort-wayne-police-look-for-missing-toddler-family

    This is so sad - and even sadder that it's no longer a surprise when we hear about these little angels being missing for months.

    What a cute little boy.
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    And what's so bad about this one is that there seemed to be people that wanted to do the right thing by the family. Someone cared enough to (finally) report Jeziah missing. And someone cared enough to take the mother and sister to the police station...

    I am so sick of this idea that children are throwaways. These people that neglect or abuse their kids to death, then simply pack up and move on like nothing happened. How can anyone do that, let alone more than one, as this is becoming more and more common.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    Kudos to the person who took the mother and her daughter to the police station. However I have major issues with the fact that for 10 months this child was not seen by relatives (aunts, uncles, grandparents).

    "Fort Wayne Police received a call from a woman saying her roommate, 31-year-old Latisha Lawson, had placed a body in a blanket in a closet on or about November 19th, 2009."

    A Probable Cause report indicates it was just before 4:00pm Monday when Fort Wayne Police received a call from a woman saying her roommate, 31-year-old Latisha Lawson, had placed a body in a blanket in a closet on or about November 19th, 2009.


    ... Lawson told them that the boy was with God. She went on to tell the police that he went with God about a week before Thanksgiving in 2009. She said the boy had upset her because she couldn’t take his temper tantrums. Lawson then said that she gave the boy olive oil and vinegar until he stopped breathing. Lawson told police she wrapped the boy up in a blanket and placed him in the closet…while never calling EMS or providing medical attention."

    I hope I didn't post more than allowed of this story, but I didn't know where to snip anymore.... I'm horrified.

    A run-away may leave on purpose, but that doesn't mean that they are able to get back home.... Never stop searching.

    Wait, wait, WAIT.....

    "Lawson then said that she gave the boy olive oil and vinegar until he stopped breathing"... How in the H does someone do THAT?!?! What the H did she exactly DO to this poor child?!?

    Excuse my edgy profanity there, but that is the very cleaned up version of what came out first.

    <snip>

    When asked where the children were, Lawson told them that the boy was with God. She went on to tell the police that he went with God about a week before Thanksgiving in 2009. She said the boy had upset her because she couldn’t take his temper tantrums. Lawson then said that she gave the boy olive oil and vinegar until he stopped breathing. Lawson told police she wrapped the boy up in a blanket and placed him in the closet…while never calling EMS or providing medical attention.

    Police then asked her if she knew at that time that she had murdered her son and she said, “Yes.”

    Officials say Lawson then told them that her son’s body was in a tote in a bedroom and gave them the location. Crime scene detectives got a search warrant, as well as permission to search the residence from Lawson and the owner. Officers located the body exactly where Lawson said it was.

    times millions. Someone actually knew that the mother put Jezaih's body in a blanket into a closet and they didn't come forward?

    Could it be the child was not at the same location were the mother and daugher were living or am I reading more into the statement in the article?
