Police: Torn letters key to 1986 killing of boy in Nevada

Police: Torn letters key to 1986 killing of boy in Nevada Piecing together torn-up jailhouse letters found in dormant files involving the 1986 disappearance of a 3-year-old boy in Nevada yielded a possible confession that led to the arrest of his mother in Florida on a murder warrant, authorities said Monday. North Las Vegas Police Chief Pamela Ojeda said the key to the arrest of Amy Elizabeth Fleming emerged after the case was reopened in 2017 by detectives trying to trace the origin of a fraudulent birth certificate application in the name of the missing boy, Francillon Pierre.

A Dania Beach, Florida woman has been arrested on charges that she killed her 3-year-old son while living in Nevada more than 30 years ago and covered up the crime by saying the boy had disappeared.

Amy Fleming, 60, faces a charge of felony murder and is currently being held in the Palm Beach County Main Detention Center after being arrested in Boca Raton.

She is currently being held on $1 million bond.

Teen Arrested For 2017 Murder After DNA Match

Teen Arrested For 2017 Murder After DNA Match A teenager is behind bars in Modesto accused of killing a woman back in 2017. Modesto Police Department has been trying to close the investigation since then, but it wasn’t until now that authorities got a break in the case thanks to DNA. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); “She would always be right here,” said Shelia Coleman, who lives near Evergreen Avenue. “I would see her walking to the store. She never spoke, she would just keep her head down.

Francillon Pierre was last seen at a North Las Vegas swap meet in August 1986. His mother, then Amy Luster, and his stepfather, Lee Luster, said they lost track of the boy -- nicknamed Yo-Yo -- and asked police not to publicize the case because they said they didn't want the media to sensationalize it.

The couple was awaiting trial on child abuse charges when Pierre disappeared. The Lusters told police that Pierre's father, Jean Pierre, may have abducted the boy and taken him home to Haiti. However, authorities ruled out Jean Pierre as a suspect, and the boy was never found.

Police had said they suspected the Lusters in the case, but they did not have enough evidence to charge either of them. In the years since, the boy was officially considered a missing person and appeared in fliers and posters. Officials even produced an age-progressed portrait of Francillon Pierre in 2011.

The real story was Grande was hit by two pucks at NHL games by the age of five.

A news conference on the case is planned for Monday afternoon by North Las Vegas police.

Fleming made her first court appearance on Feb. 1, 2019 at the PBCMDC where she waived extradition.
