A dead child was found stuffed in a tote bag in a Texas motel room — and the body is believed to be a missing 6-year-old Houston boy, according to police and reports.
The body, discovered Tuesday in the bag in a Best Western in Jasper, is believed to be that of Samuel Olson, who was reported missing on May 27, KTVT reported.
“A possible suspect is in custody and will be interviewed by our homicide investigators,” Houston Police Chief Troy Finner tweeted. “More details will be provided at a news briefing [Wednesday]. I ask the entire Houston community to join HPD in sending prayers to Samuel and his family.”
The girlfriend of the boy’s father, Theresa Balboa, was being questioned by police as a suspect in the investigation, KTRK reported. A tip led cops to the Best Western in Jasper, which is two hours away from Houston, according to the report.
