    IL - Ricardo Diaz, 3, found strangled, 17yo sister charged, 9 March 2005

    http://www.suntimes.com/output/news/cst-nws-doe10.html

    Police late Wednesday were questioning the father of a 2-year-old boy found dead in a garbage can on Chicago's Southwest Side hours earlier.

    Just after 3 p.m., a man rifling through garbage cans in an alley in Little Village discovered the toddler's battered body in a white plastic bag, according to police and neighbors.

    The child, a Hispanic male whose name has not been released, was dressed in a T-shirt and jeans, and a source close to the investigation said he likely died several hours before being discovered.

    The boy had apparently suffered some kind of facial trauma and a few of his front teeth appeared to have been knocked out, a source told the Chicago Sun-Times. Though it is officially labeled a death investigation, authorities believe this is likely a homicide case.

    The boy's father, who had apparently reported the child missing, was taken to the Harrison Area 4 Headquarters. He and the child live in the vicinity where the body was found in a plastic garbage can, investigators said.

    I should have made my post clearer, it is actually one story. The boys own sister is being charged with his murder.

    A Cook County Criminal Courts judge sentenced a Pilsen woman Tuesday to 33 years in prison for strangling her younger brother and then dumping his body in a trash bin.

    Yesenia Diaz, 20, was convicted in July in a bench trial before Circuit Judge Stanley Sacks of the March 2005 slaying of her 3-year-old brother, Ricardo.
