    I'm sitting here trying to think of how this could be an accident, but I can't come up with anything that makes sense. If it had been a boating accident, surely he would be wearing a life vest. If he had wandered off and drowned, someone would be looking for him. This is scary and sad. :(

    Could he have died during the hurricanes and been submerged? And fam missing too so no report? Could he be an incoming refugee from Cuba? Floated from PR? Trying to think of alternatives to a murdered child [emoji22]

    Authorities have already checked with the coastguard - nothing has been reported. Also no reports of a missing swimmer from the shore and no reports of a missing child in the area that matches the description.

    Unfortunately in the past the island has been used as a dumping ground for babies that have had horrific things done to them. Riley Ann Sawyers in October 2007 and Elijah Mullis less than a year later in 2008. :(

    I've read that decomp is slower when in cold water, but this time of year the gulf is still relatively warm and hurricane Harvey and all of the flooding occurred nearly two months ago; also considering they were able to give age and race and are trying to match him to a missing report leads me to believe he may not have been deceased for very long before he was discovered.

    The last thing anyone wants to hear is that someone took this baby's life, but circumstances all seem to point to that conclusion. :(

    Sad. I hope they can figure out who this little one is. :( Makes me think of Bella Bond.

    It's interesting to compare coverage of both cases.

    Oh god I hope its not another bella. But a normal parent/carer missing a wee one would report it, so it can't be good can it?

    I can't help but wonder if he could be the child of illegals, and thus they are afraid to report him missing?

    Could this child's death be the result of a boating accident where parent(s) have been injured or died?

    But you'd think a friend or relative or someone would report them missing. I suppose anything is possible at this point.

    The coast guard hasn't had any reports of missing vessels or persons, most of our family friendly boating occurs in the bay not the ocean - beach front conditions were rough yesterday.

    I agree, it's been over 24hrs since they discovered the little boy - surely someone would report a missing family if they went out for the day and never came back? There was also no mention of a life jacket, if I had my toddler in a boat out in the ocean they would most definitely have one on - but on a day like yesterday I wouldn't dream of boating in the ocean with a toddler.

    I hope he wasn't the child of a single Mom, who may be missing or injured as well?
