Body found in Colo. landfill may be missing infant Torrey Brown, police say
(CBS) AURORA, Colo. - After two months of searching, investigators may have found the body of 7-month-old Torrey Brown at Denver's Arapahoe landfill, CBS Denver reports. They haven't confirmed whether the body found Wednesday is Torrey, who went missing last March.
Sharrieckia Page is accused of killing her son. She has been charged with child abuse resulting in death, and first degree murder.
An initial disappearance investigation began March 29, although police said they believed Torrey was no longer alive. Detectives said the child died at the hands of his mother.
Investigators said they received information that Page was seen near a dumpster at the apartment complex where she lived in Commerce City. FBI and police detectives searched for the baby's remains at the Denver Arapahoe Disposal Site in April.
For over 50 days, 500 people from 26 agencies and community organizations across the nation assisted the search. Working in 12-hour shifts at a cost of approximately $10,000 per day, crews sorted through 9,900 tons of waste, over one million square feet, before finding the remains, CBS Denver reports.
