Police found the boy’s dead body shortly after 7 am after they received a call that they have revealed wasn’t from the boy’s home.
A 39-year-old local identified as Antwainese Square was jogging around Mountain Creek Parkway square at 6.40 am when she came across what she thought was a dog until she noticed its human hands and feet. “That’s when I noticed the baby had ants at the bottom of his feet.”
“So I knew he was deceased then,” Square told the outlet.
“It was heart-wrenching because this baby could have been no more than 5,” she added.

Speaking to CBS News, she also shared, “I see something lying in the road and my initial thought was that it was a dog. The closer I get to it I can tell it’s a human cause I see a hand and I see legs. Very traumatizing. I have three kids. To see a child covered in blood in the middle of the street, it’s truly traumatizing.”
Police believe the boy probably died before 5 am.
In a statement, the Dallas Police Department said, “Through the hard work of the men and women of the Dallas Police Department this criminal was brought to justice and it would not have been made possible without the Dallas FBI Evidence Response Team and the public’s assistance.”
