A missing boy's body has been found in his family's freezer

This is the most heart-wrenching story I've seen come out of Virginia in a long time. Wow. Just, wow.

The body of a boy named Eliel Adon Weaver, who was just shy of his fifth birthday, has been found in his parent's freezer. An anonymous source let Virginia police know about the parent's home on May 4. The brave source told police "the child’s body may have been hidden at a home on Lookout Point Circle."

According to police, the remains were in the freezer for around 18 months to two and a half years before the call came in. I can't imagine the sick adults who could open their freezer to pull out some Eggos and see their child's body in there like nothing is wrong for this long. How could they?

Eliel's parents, Dina and Kassceen Weaver, were arrested after the chief medical examiner for the county ID'ed Eliel as the victim, though how he died is still a mystery. The Weaver's were both charged with "conspiracy to conceal a body and failing to render aid to a child."

Additionaly, Kassceen was slapped with "concealment of a body and domestic assault and malicious wounding of an adult female (his wife)."

The other child in the home with the Weaver's is now in foster care as the parents await their day in court.

Chesterfield Chesterfield Police Major Mike Louth says "this isn't your typical type of investigation."

"We have human remains that had been in a freezer for approximately a year and a half to two years. So you know, we needed to have an autopsy done, and they worked really well with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. They brought in some specialists, some forensic anthropologists to help us out on this."

I am just sickened by this news. Rest in peace to that sweet little boy who's only crime was being born.
