    Nevada Mom Who Reported 3-Year-Old Son Missing Is Arrested After Boy's Body is Found in Park

    September 03, 2018 05:17 PM

    One day after a Las Vegas mom reported her 3-year-old son missing from a park, police have arrested the mom and the child’s father after finding the boy’s dead body, PEOPLE confirms.

    Authorities called off the search for Daniel Theriot after they discovered his body Monday in a remote area near Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Las Vegas Metro Police Homicide Lt. Ray Spencer told reporters at a Monday press conference.

    Neither the 20-year-old mother nor the child’s 40-year-old father, whom authorities identified as the woman’s boyfriend, were immediately named.

    Missing 3-year-old found dead; mother, boyfriend suspected

    Published: September 3, 2018

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police found the body of a 3-year-old boy Monday at a remote area near Lake Mead a day after distributing a photo showing him with a wide smile in a pirate costume.

    His 20-year-old mother Cassie Smith and her boyfriend, 40-year-old Joshua Oxford, have been arrested on suspicion of child abuse in connection with the treatment of the 3-year-old's younger brother and will likely also be charged with murder in the death of the older boy, police said.

    Officers became suspicious Sunday when Smith reported her toddler son Daniel Theriot missing at a Las Vegas park. Police distributed the photo of the blonde boy as part of their search.

    Sep 4, 2018

    LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- New details about the death of 3-year-old Daniel Theriot came out in court on Tuesday.
    Some of the details were shocking to hear, including hemorrhaging and burn marks. Equally concerning for prosecutors was the criminal history of the man police found supervising Daniel’s younger brother, Brandon Theriot, while police were still searching for Daniel.

    Mom Who Was Charged After Son, 3, Found Dead Had Made Him Live in 'Filth' & Sleep with Roaches: Cousin

    September 04, 2018 06:13 PM

    A cousin of the Las Vegas mom charged after her 3-year-old son’s body was found in a park Monday said the woman allegedly took poor care of her two children, making them live in “filth” and sleep alongside roaches.
    When Daniel’s body was found Monday, Las Vegas Metro Police Homicide Lt. Ray Spencer told reporters he wouldn’t reveal how the boy died but said “there was nothing accidental about it.”

    Spencer said Smith told police she had been in Sunset Park with her son and was using her phone when the boy wandered off. But no other witnesses could corroborate seeing Smith and her son together at the park.

    Las Vegas mom 'did nothing' as hot water poured on son before death

    LAS VEGAS — An arrest report reveals that the mother of a 3-year-old boy who was killed "did nothing" as her boyfriend poured hot water on him.

    The arrest report for Cassie Smith and Joshua Oxford also details that Oxford had spanked her son, Daniel Theriot "over and over again" before pouring the hot water on him the day before Smith reported him missing at Sunset Park. Smith told police that Theriot had been "having a bad attitude" and was acting disrespectful to herself and Oxford.

    Man Receives Sentence In Death Of 3 Year-Old

    A man will serve 16 to 45 years in prison for the death of a three-year-old boy.

    42 year-old Joshua Oxford was sentenced this week for the death of three-year-old Daniel Theriot after Oxford took a plea deal which reduced his charge to second-degree murder.

    NO! I despise plea-downs.
    IMO charges should not have been reduced to 2nd degree. Oxford serving 16 - 45 years in exchange for the life of little Daniel makes me so mad. Call him what he is, a POS who tortured & killed a baby.

    So what is mom's punishment for standing by her man?
