UPDATE: November 2: Investigation for baby in landfill

This Tuesday, the search for 13-month-old boy presumed to be in an Ault landfill began after weeks of delays.


23-year-old Logan Rogers, the boyfriend of the child’s mother, had already been arrested before the search. Rogers allegedly took the baby to a friend’s house hours before he died.

The child was exposed to methamphetamine and suffered a concussion, according to the arrest affidavit.

Rogers allegedly wrapped the baby in a blanket and disposed of him into a trash bin.

After the sanitation department worked to attempt to locate the bin, several changed plans and fruitless tip leads, the search was postponed until Tuesday.

The police have now narrowed the search area within the landfill. Police and members of the search team continue to search for the body.
