Woman charged in son's death after buried remains found

She was taken into custody but had not been charged with any crime, police spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said.

Police in OH received a call from someone in Pakistan Monday, saying that a Cleveland woman had buried her 5-year-old child in her yard.

Jordan's disappearance went unknown until Monday, when the brother of Larissa Rodriguez's boyfriend, Christopher Rodriguez, called Cleveland police from Pakistan, police said.

Police arrested the little boy's mother, Larissa Rodriguez, 34, on suspicion of murder, while her boyfriend, Christopher Rodriguez, 36, was locked up for failure to pay child support.

Reporter Homa Bash wrote on Twitter that the body found bore signs of abuse, including broken ribs. She was unable to provide contact information for the boy's biological father or the aunt, police reports say.

Investigators say Rodriguez told police that her son had gone to visit his father in Texas earlier this month.

Christopher Rodriguez's brother, sparked the investigation when he called authorities and said his brother called from jail and told him Jordan was dead and buried in a backyard.




Neighbors and friends started putting stuffed animals and other items on the porch, shortly after human remains were found in the backyard Tuesday. Cuyahoga County Division of Children and Family Services removed five of the children from the home, citing that they believed they were in immediate danger, according to WEWS.

A medical examiner is working to identify the cause of death of a young child whose remains were found in the yard of a Cleveland home after two days of searching for a possible missing child.

The deceased child has two incarcerated parents.

Law enforcement has arrested a mother of nine after they discovered the body of a 5-year-old child in her backyard.

The family had been living in a house infested with cockroaches and rats and according to documents filed, one child was seen eating a sandwich that contained cockroaches.

She said she knew the woman had a lot of kids but said, "She takes care of them". Jordan was reportedly a special needs child and was speech-impaired. She also said her son was developmentally disabled and was unable to speak, it said.
