    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.

    Bond for a 17-year-old girl charged with strangling her 3-year-old brother in their Little Village home because he would not stop crying was set at $650,000 Monday.

    Yesenia Diaz, of the 2200 block of South Sawyer Avenue, stood in tears before Criminal Court Judge Matthew Coghlan as prosecutors detailed the killing of her brother.

    Diaz has beencharged with first-degree murder in the March 9 slaying of her brother Ricardo, whom she was baby-sitting along with a 1-year-old brother.
