Soul Screwed Series

The parents of a missing two-year-old boy have been apprehended on suspciion of murder after the toddler was found deceased in a garbage can hours after he was initially reported missing .

The body of two-year-old Ezekiel Harry was found crammed into a black duffel bag roughly six hours after he was said to go missing on July 12. Video footage shows Ezekiel's mother, 28-year-old Maya Jones, and her significant other, 37-year-old Jermaine Robinson, exiting the location of their Louisiana residence with the exact black duffel bag in possession that the child was discovered.

Jones and Robinson are presently in police custody and charged with multiple felonies including first-degree murder and obstruction of justice, according to the Houma Police Department said. If they are found guilty, they are both facing the death penalty.

According to The Sun, the Houma Police Department stated in their report that Harry was feared to be missing after a call near midday on July 12 tipping off his possible abduction.

According to The Sun, when officers reached Jones, she allegedly said that she was waking down Bayou Terrebonne with her child when someone in a grey vehicle drove by. She then grabbed her toddler and fled the location. After an investigation into her assertions, Houma police reported they gathered knowledge that Jones's statement was false. Once Ezekiel was declared missing, an expansive search party was sent to locate the missing child.

The Terrebonne Parish District Attorney, Joseph Waitz Jr., told WFLA, "We are aware of abusive patterns in the past involving this young child." WFLA reported the team was said to be of the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office, the Louisiana State Police, the Houma City Marshal’s Office, the US Coast Guard, and the Dulagre Fire Department, and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.

Q&A: Spouse Debates Court As He Fights To See His Daughter After Girlfriend Moves Into Hotel With New Boyfriend

"My ex-girlfriend moved out of our apartment into a hotel room after she received her money from taxes. She said that she wasn't happy and felt we needed to separate. Against my objections, she packed her and our daughter's clothes and left. Since her departure, there has been constant bickering over when I can spend quality time with my child. I have kept my composure and tried my best to keep tensions calm, however, a mutual friend of ours recently told me that she has a new boyfriend that she has been spending quality time with. I brought the topic up to her, and she started calling me jealous and so on. My only point is that she has a man in a hotel room staying with my child. I feel as a father, I have a right to question these actions. I responded by assuring her that I was not concerned with whom she wished to be with, but I would like to care for my child when he is around until I knew him better and so forth. I also brought up the fact that for her to be so comfortable with the new fellow, she must have known him for a longer period of time than said. Which in my mind would explain her recent departure. She became extremely upset and began whopping and hollering about me wasting her life and wanting to control her. Since the incident, I have only spoken to my daughter over the phone and have yet to see her. I don't want to cause problems for our family. What can I do without involving the courts?" -Xavier.
