SAVANNEH, Ga. — The FBI confirmed Monday that the bones found in a Georgia landfill are those of a toddler who was reported missing last month and whose mother was arrested last week on charges including murder.

The FBI used DNA analysis to confirm the bones belonged to 20-month-old Quinton Simon, the agency said in a release. Chatham County Police said Nov. 21 that they had arrested Leilani Simon, 22, on charges of malicious murder, covering up the death of another person, hoaxing and making false statements about her son.

Simon was being held in the Chatham County jail, and it wasn’t immediately clear Monday if she had an attorney to speak for her.

Simon called police on October 5 to report that their son was missing from his playpen at their home outside of Savannah. The remains, which were determined to belong to Quintons, were found at a landfill site on November 18.

DEVELOPMENT: More details will be added to this report as they become available.
