Police searched a landfill Monday in Corona, California, in hopes of finding the body of a 6-month-old boy who disappeared in January. However, the infant, Jacsun Manson, was not found and police plan to resume their search at a later date. Meanwhile, on Monday, the boy’s parents, Adam Manson, 34, and Kianna Williams, 32, were served with an arrest warrant for murder, Culver City Police Lt. Troy Dunlap tells PEOPLE. The couple has been in custody since Jan. 3 on suspicion of vehicle theft, the Los Angeles Times reports.
“Detectives have developed reason to believe that Adam Manson and Kianna Williams are responsible for the disappearance and death of their six-month-old son Jacsun,” Culver City Police said in a statement. “We also believe that after his death, Adam and Kianna discarded Jacsun’s body in a dumpster near the Crenshaw Mall in Los Angeles.”
The dumpster is emptied at the El Sobrante Landfill in Corona, where more than 20 police personnel and volunteers searched the site Monday, according to ABC7. The infant was last seen alive on Dec. 31 with his parents in a stolen blue 2006 PT Cruiser, which had a missing bumper and the license plates removed.
Jacsun was reported missing by the Los Angeles County Department of Child and Family Services on Jan. 25. It was not immediately clear if Manson and Williams have retained an attorney who could comment on their behalf.
