Police Investigation Reports
The Jackson County, Oregon Sheriff’s Office investigated the couple for burglary in 2018. The case resulted in convictions, and Janiak was scheduled to start serving her sentence on June 11. However, she did not show up to her sentencing.
The FBI says the last time the three were known to be in Medford was June 4.
“Family was concerned for Hannah, Daniel, and Aiden’s welfare as they have made no contact with any friends or family. Hannah was described as a good mother. The family also said the trio were homeless and would camp along the greenway in Medford. The family said that Hannah suffers from mental health issues,” the FBI said in a statement.
“During the stop, the vehicle fled, and the driver led officers on a pursuit. Officers spiked the tires, and the vehicle came to a stop. When the officers approached they found both the male and female were deceased. The female was believed to have been shot in the head, and the male had an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head,” the FBI said.
The couple was identified as Salcido and Janiak. Aiden was not found, and there is no evidence of a child being in the vehicle, according to the FBI.
“Investigators are greatly concerned for Aiden’s welfare and are asking for the public’s help in locating him safely and expeditiously. Detectives are seeking any information that could assist in locating Aiden,” the FBI said.
Investigators found by searching Janiak’s financial records that the last activity was on June 3 and June 4, when two purchases were made at a Walmart in Medford, the FBI said.
The purchases were caught on surveillance video, which showed the parents and Aiden together. The couple purchased camping equipment, the FBI said.
