  • A Texas woman was arrested Tuesday in connection with the death of her 2-year-old son, whose body was found in a trash bin a day after an Amber Alert was issued for the missing toddler. Laura Sanchez, 35, of Waco, was charged with first-degree felony injury to a child with intent, according to an affidavit. She was arrested and booked into the McLennan County Jail on Tuesday, the Waco Tribune-Herald reported. The body of Frankie Gonzales was discovered by police in a trash bin near Park Lake Baptist Churcha church about 2 miles from a park, KWTX reported. Sanchez told police her son disappeared after she turned away briefly when the boy went to a restroom, the television station reported. Police said they discovered that the boy had never been at Cameron Park, KXXV reported. “Frankie did not die of natural causes,” Garen Bynum, a spokesperson with the Waco Police Department, told reporters. Waco police said during a news conference Tuesday that Sanchez apparently confessed her involvement in the boy’s disappearance to family members, who then called police, KXAS reported. During an interview with investigators overnight, Waco police Officer Garen Bynum said the boy’s mom “may have broke a little bit” and that she then told investigators where they could find the child’s remain, the television station reported. Sanchez led police to the dumpster where the body was found, KXXV reported. According to an affidavit, Sanchez told police her son died while in her care on or around Thursday and she kept the body in her house until Saturday when she disposed of it in the trash bin, the Tribune-Herald reported.

  • A Texas adult probation employee is under fire after a Facebook post that referenced the death of George Floyd, who died May 25 after a Minneapolis police officer put his knee on the man’s neck for nearly nine minutes. Bexar County officials on Monday confirmed the employee, Kenneth Saville, is a licensed chemical dependency counselor with the Community Supervision and Corrections Department, KSAT reported. The post. which was made last week, includes a photograph of the late actor, Heath Ledger, in his role as the Joker from the 2008 film, “The Dark Knight,” the television station reported. The post reads: “Black football player takes a knee, everyone praises him. White cop takes a knee, everyone loses their minds.” The first part of the post appears to be referencing former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who kneeled during the national anthem before games to protest police brutality. The latter part of the post appears to reference the actions of Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin, who was fired Tuesday and then charged with third=degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. “The CSCD prohibits racist conduct, conduct that promotes violence and, or unethical conduct,” Jarvis Anderson, the agency’s director, wrote in an email to WOAI. An independent autopsy released Monday found that Floyd died from 'asphyxiation from sustained pressure.” Bexar County officials on Monday declined to say what discipline Saville could face, KSAT reported. “The Bexar County CSCD respects the First Amendment rights of its employees as provided by law. Given the confidential nature of this employee matter, I am unable to comment on any specific determination that has been made as to Mr. Saville’s conduct,” Anderson wrote in an email to KSAT. Saville did not respond to a request for comment sent to his Facebook page, the television station reported.
