A very tragic situation has occurred in Galveston, Texas. The remains of a small child were found on a local beach, but authorities are unable to identify the child at this time.
According to the Galveston Police Department, a concerned caller phoned 911 on Friday morning, October 20th. While walking along the beach, the caller noticed the body and immediately called local police.
Authorities believe the child is a boy between the ages of 3 and 5 years old, stands 3’ tall, has a slender body, black hair, and brown eyes. Oddly enough, no missing child reports have been filed in the area, so this mysterious situation raises many questions—who does the young boy belong to? How did he end up on the beach? What was the cause of his tragic death?
An investigation is ongoing as police search hectically to determine who this boy is. According to Fox News, this is being treated as a homicide until further notice. An autopsy report is currently pending, which will hopefully bring some answers soon.
Galveston Police stated on Sunday, “This is an extremely unusual case for Galveston Island, and the circumstances surrounding this death grow more and more suspicious as time goes on.”
