The bodies of both boys have remained missing since their respective incidents in December 2020 and late February.

Investigators said Lattimore, 3, was thrown into the river alive by his mother’s boyfriend Dec. 6. The man, identified as Desean Brown, 21, is accused of killing Nylo’s mother, 21-year-old Nyteisha just hours before Brown threw Nylo into the river, prosecutors allege.

Gosney drove to the park to abandon Hutchinson and his two older siblings when he grabbed the door handle and was either dragged or run over as Gosney tried to speed off. Hutchinson died from his injuries at the park, according to investigators.
