    NM - Albuquerque, UID child buried at playground, May'09 - Tyruss Toribio

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. Police are investigating the death of a boy whose body was found Friday buried in the sand of an Albuquerque playground.

    Albuquerque Police Chief Ray Schultz said during a late night news conference that police have had no reports of missing children in the last 24 hours and he asked the public for help in identifying the boy.

    The boy was wearing a red shirt with the image of a four-wheel drive truck on the front, black nylon pants with red stripes and black shoes.


    The investigation began Friday afternoon when a mother who took her children to Alvarado Park spotted a shoe buried in the sand at the playground.

    Forensic experts are working to remove the body and comb the scene for any evidence.

    More information and pictures of the shirt he was wearing: http://www.kob.com/article/stories/S....shtml?cat=500

    The victim was clothed in a red, short-sleeved t-shirt with a 4x4 truck design and Sketchers-type tennis shoes that are black with white and lime stripes. The victim’s socks are described as short, white socks. The body was also wearing black, nylon running pants styled like sweatpants with a red stripe.

    Cops believe that the boy may be missing from the neighborhood.


    APD is also looking for a woman who was seen in the park between 6 and 9 p.m. Thursday with four kids. She is described as a very thin white woman in her early 30s with light brown, wavy hair. A witness told police she had four kids with her ages 3-10; a 10-year-old boy with jeans and a red shirt, a three-year-old girl with a pink and purple top, jeans and a ponytail, and another boy and girl between the ages of five and eight.

    Young child buried in playground

    A mother taking her children to the playground sees a shoe buried in the sand and stumbles on the body of a young boy. No child is reported missing.


    The park, Alvarado Park in northeast Albuquerque is a few blocks south of Interstate 40 and about halfway between San Mateo and San Pedro.

    The boy is described as:

    3-5 years old
    About 40 inches tall
    Straight, short dark hair
    Skecher tennis shoes, black with silver and lime-green stripes
    Black nylon running pants or sweat pants
    Red short-sleeve shirt with red, 4x4 truck with oversized tires on it

    The body was buried in loose sand for no more than 48 hours.
    Police also want to talk to a woman with four kids who was seen in the park Thursday evening.

    This is so sad. I have take my own children to this park and I am kinda baffled by this one. This is a very busy park, there are always alot of people there. I don't think he could have been there too long without anybody noticing him. The fact that there are no reported missing children here in Albuquerque leads me to believe this was probably a parent that was responsible for his death. Prayers going up for this little boy.

    This is awful. I can't see this being anything other than foul play although the police have not yet called this a homicide investigation.
    If it turns out to be a homicide, which it seems like it will, what would make a person dump a child's body at a park/playground, where other children might discover it? That just seems even more heinous. Or is it possible that whomever did this had a twisted sense of remorse about the death and put them where they knew/assumed the child liked to play?
    I guess it is pointless to speculate until more details come out, but this is just so sad, especially since they are having to put so much effort into ID'ing the child. What a tragedy.

    Thank you for that information. I was wondering about how busy this park is. I agree that a parent or caretaker is most likely responsible if it is true no missing child reports have been filed.

    OMG, how awful! Thank God he was found by an adult and not a child.

    I wish they would mention if there were any visible injuries.
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    Shortly before 10 p.m. medical investigators have finished removing the boy's body. A field examination showed no obvious signs of physical trauma.

    I agree Lovejac, this little boy's body could have easily been found instead by a child.

    I have to take a deep sigh today, my patience is wearing thin again with the parents who abuse or murder or otherwise dispose of their deceased children without respect or dignity.

    I may need to take another break. May the angels wrap their arms around this child and may his name be known soon. It drives me to distraction when a child's name is unknown.

    The fact that police won't say whether there are any visible injuries..


    Schultz would not say whether there were any wounds on the body.
    leads me to believe that there are.

    Obviously the parent/s are involved, otherwise a missing child would have been reported. Surely a Grandparent, Aunt, Uncle, friend or someone knows that this child is missing. How can you not miss a child for 24-48 hours?

    Momtective I was hoping that he has already attended school. Pre-k or K teachers might recognize that they have a child that is missing school. That could lead to his identification possibly.

    If he's in preschool though, I think most preschools are already out for the summer. I know my daughters is, at least (it ended last week). Kindergarten would be a different story though.

    Also, I'm hoping maybe neighbors will come forward and say they haven't seen him in a few days, or something.

    However, LE is now saying he could've been dead for less than 48 hours, which means it may still take some time for anyone (teachers, if he's in school, grandparents, neighbors, etc) to even notice he's missing. I think the key here is as soon as they are able to identify him..I would be willing to bet whoever is responsible for his death will be found as well (like, his parents).
