Police searching landfill for missing toddler Quinton Simon – WTOC
Investigators have begun searching a landfill in Chatham County in search of missing toddler Quinton Simon. They are not searching the whole landfill, but a specific area.
Investigators believe Quinton’s body was placed in a dumpster at a specific location and transported to the landfill by “regular means”.
Ted Williams, a renowned attorney and a former longtime homicide detective, called the announcement of the child’s death “such sad news” and said police were still gathering evidence.
Investigators are still trying to put together a case that would be prosecutable, Williams said, and are likely seeking evidence that proves “that the mother did something untoward toward the child.” Quinton’s mother also admitted to using drugs while she was pregnant with the toddler.
Quinton Simon was last seen inside his family’s home on Buckhalter Road in Savannah in the early morning hours of Oct. 5, when he was wearing a Sesame Street shirt and black bottoms.
Chatham County Police Chief Jeff Hadley said the investigation will be physically, mentally, and emotionally grueling, but they won’t quit searching until they have a reason not to.The FBI and Chief Hadley emphasize that getting Quinton to a proper resting place is the most important thing right now.
