Jordan Vong was reported Monday afternoon after he went missing in his neighborhood. Police searched a 20-block radius but did not find the boy until Tuesday night.
That’s when police searched the family’s home and found Vong’s body. Police are not releasing any details regarding how the boy died, but did say the body was carefully hidden.
“It was intentionally concealed, and it took some time to find it,” said Joe Montoya, division chief of investigations.
The next morning, a 16-year-old girl was taken into custody on suspicion of first-degree murder after police said they found evidence connecting her to Vong’s death.
She is being held without bond and will be formally charged on Aug. 14.
Police have not released her identity because she is a juvenile and have not stated her relationship with Vong.
Interesting to note, however, was Montoya’s description of Vong’s family when he stated they were “cooperative to a point.”
A GoFundMe page has been created to help raise money for Vong’s funeral. The creator of the fundraiser described Vong as the “sweetest and silliest little boy who had so much to offer.”
