HOLLYWOOD (CBSMiami) – Two weeks ago, Hollywood Police again descended on the home where investigators found the body of 3-year-old Ahizya Osceola in a garbage bag stuffed inside a cardboard box in mid-March.

When detectives returned to the home – about a month after the crime – it appears they were investigating a comment made by Ahizya's 5-year-old stepbrother.

According to a search warrant, during an interview with the child, "it was discovered that Analiz Osceola used a stick from the bed to hit" a child whose name is blacked out in the document but it is likely that it's Ahizya Osceola.

Analiz Osceola is charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child.

The search warrant shows that police recovered three different sticks from the home. It's not clear from the document when the hitting is alleged to have occurred.

And there are other details emerging about possible efforts to cover up Ahizya's death.

Another search warrant in the case reveals more specifics about the box where investigators recovered the boy's body.

The warrant said, "Two additional plastic bags of clothing were shoved into the opening of the box to further conceal the body."

The medical examiner reported that the little boy suffered terrible injuries, finding bruises all over his body, gouge marks on his neck and that blunt impact abdominal trauma killed him.

Investigators said Analiz Osceola performed CPR on the boy on the morning he died and left him in bed even though she knew he was deceased. Detectives said after people in the home left for work, she hid the boy's body.

Analiz Osceola pleaded not guilty to the charges.

She plans to ask a judge on Wednesday to reduce her bond, which is more than $200,000.

In court records, her attorney argues that Osceola is pregnant, has strong ties to the community and no prior arrests.

Nelson Osceola – Ahizya's father and Analiz's husband – is charged with child neglect in the case. He is out of jail on bond.

We reached out to Analiz Osceola's attorney for comment on the allegations in the search warrant but we could not reach him by phone or email.
