Samuel Olson Missing
The body found in the bag at a Jasper Best Western on Tuesday is believed to be that of Samuel Olson, who was reported missing on May 27, KTVT reported.
“A possible suspect is on remand and is being questioned by our homicide investigators,” tweeted Houston Police Chief Troy Finner. “Further details will be announced at a press conference [Wednesday]. I ask the entire Houston church to join the HPD and send prayers to Samuel and his family. ”
The boy’s father’s girlfriend, Theresa Balboa, was questioned by police as a suspect in the investigation, KTRK reported. According to the report, a clue led the police to the Best Western in Jasper, which is two hours from Houston.
Investigators in protective clothing are said to have worked through the crime scene overnight. Samuel would have turned 6 on the weekend, reported the broadcaster.
Balboa told KTRK Monday that she last saw Samuel on May 27 at his paternal grandmother’s home in southwest Houston. The woman was also spotted looking for the boy in Webster, according to the report.
“I was about to take Sam to school when his mother showed up with the cop, or who I thought was a cop, and they asked me to release Sam,” Balboa told KTRK.
Balboa said she turned Samuel over to his mother because his parents were involved in a custody battle, but police told the Houston Chronicle they had yet to verify that claim.
Assistant Police Chief Larry Satterwhite said the last confirmed sighting of Samuel was on April 30th at his school. The boy may have been missing since then, Satterwhite told the newspaper.
“We’re trying to act as soon as possible to get him back safely,” Satterwhite told the newspaper on Monday before the horrific find on Tuesday. “We’re still not where we have to be to find him.”
