UPDATE: MPD arrest mother for death of missing 2-month-old child

Washington-DC

WASHINGTON (WDVM) — The Metropolitan Police Department has made an arrest in the case of a missing 2-month-old child.

Police first started the investigation on May 7 when they responded to the 1500 block of Benning Road, Northeast, for a welfare check on an infant. When they arrived, they found the mother who did not know where 2-month-old Kyon Jones was.

Police stated that they have not yet found Kyon’s remains, but they have identified the suspect as 37-year-old Ladonia Boggs and charged her with felony murder. They said that this disappearance was domestic.

Boggs was charged with tampering with evidence in court on Saturday. The complaint said that she “altered, destroyed, mutilated, concealed, and removed… (the) body of… a baby of approximately 7 weeks of age… with the intent to impair the integrity and availability of that body.” Her next court date is in November.
