Emmett Trap, aged 2, found dead this morning
UPDATE: 6:10 PM CT Investigators say the little boy indeed walked for up to 3 miles but was found a mile from home. His little footprints led them directly to him and they were the only footprints around where he was found. Still no word on exactly how he died. This is coming from Jane Velez Mitchell who is saying she believes he fell into an abandoned mine or well and he was found lying in the mud. What a tragic accident.
APSN is reporting that the two-year old Emmett Trap has been found dead about a mile from his home.
Trap’s body was found at around 11:30 am this morning. Police have sealed off the area as a crime scene for investigative purposes.
Emmett was reported missing from his Dewey-Humboldt, Arizona home Monday night. His mother told investigators that she was home with her 4 children when he disappeared. She was taking an early evening nap when she awoke around 8:00 PM and discovered he had “wandered off.” She said the dog apparently went with him but came back when she called his name.
Heartwrenching. Heartbreaking. Beyond tragic. And a reminder to us all that you can’t take your eyes off your babies for even a minute in these times we live in. We don’t know yet how this precious little fellow died, but I think it’s safe to say it wasn’t from natural causes. My thoughts and prayers are with his family today.
