Missouri police say they have found the boy dead, and instead of hunting down the masked intruders, they consider the child's father, Eddie Salazar Sr., the prime suspect in the baby's death.Check back for more details as the story develops.
"Since Mr. Salazar is charged and is being held on $100,000 bond, that will allow us to do a bit more investigating and do the autopsy before seeking more charges," [Carthage Police Chief Greg] Dagnan said at a news conference Saturday evening.
"I won't speculate at this time what charges we will seek or what will be filed."
