His mother threw him away like trash. She never expected him to be found. What a disgusting human being.
HAMPTON, Va. –
Authorities in Virginia announced Wednesday that remains of a child believed to be missing 2-year-old Noah Tomlin have been recovered.
Hampton police Chief Terry Sult said a search team found a body believed to be Noah’s around 8:50 a.m. local time at a steam plant that had been part of the search area.
Investigators, forensic technicians and the medical examiner’s office are currently processing the scene for formal confirmation and identification,” Suit said.
Noah’s mother, Julia Tomlin, reported the 2-year-old missing on June 24, launching a massive search that saw authorities searching more than two million pounds of trash for signs of the boy. Sult said more than 10,000 manhours went into the efforts.
“The priority all along has been to find Noah.,” Sult said Wednesday. “Noah is the epitome of an innocent victim. He, like all victims, deserves better.”
Police on June 28 arrested Julia Tomlin on three counts of felony child neglect.
It was not immediately clear whether charges would be filed in connection to Noah’s death.
“That will be evaluated by the Commonwealth’s attorney,” Sult said. “There’s still investigation that has to go on, including an autopsy.”
