The dismembered remains of a baby found in a Chicago lagoon was identified as 2-year-old Kyrian Knox of Rockford, IL through DNA testing.
The boy’s grandmother, Cameshia Harris, pleaded for the public’s help in finding out what happened to the child who was last seen in mid-August, but not reported missing until Sept. 17.
“I don’t know if he was deceased already when they cut my grandbaby up, but it’s a crime scene somewhere,” Cameshia Harris told The Chicago Tribune. “Somebody had to see them. … Somebody had to see something. Please call the Chicago Police Department.”
Kyrian’s remain were discovered Sept. 5 when two tiny feet and two hands were discovered Sept. 5 floating in the water at Garfield Park in Chicago, according to PEOPLE magazine. The child’s head was reportedly found the next day.
Kyrian went missing after his mother Lanisha Knox dropped him off at a family friend’s home while she went to Cedar Rapids, Iowa for training at a new job.
