The FBI says that human bones discovered in a dump belong to missing Georgia child Quinton Simon.

The FBI verified on Monday that the bones discovered in a Georgia dump belonged to a youngster who went missing last month and whose mother was arrested last week on charges of murder.

According to a news release from the FBI, DNA analysis was utilized to confirm that the bones belonged to 20-month-old Quinton Simon. On Nov. 21, Chatham County police announced the arrest of Leilani Simon, 22, on charges of malice murder, hiding another person’s death, false reporting, and making false statements involving her son.

Simon was being held in the Chatham County Jail on Monday, and it wasn’t apparent whether she had a counsel who could speak on her behalf.

Simon reported her baby missing from his playpen in their house just outside Savannah to authorities on Oct. 5. On November 18, the remains of Quinton were discovered in a dump.
