Marinero Toddler Found in Dumpster is Home

By  | 

Jose Ramirez is home with his 11-month-old son, Angel Ramirez-Marinero. The child was returned home Friday evening to the care of his father, aunt and other family members.

Angel's mother, 45-year-old Jesus Marinero, was found dead Wednesday evening near 4th & Cedar.

Angel has been in the care of Child Protective Services.

He was found in a dumpster outside a La Vista apartment complex Wednesday evening. This is the first time the toddler has seen family in days. Jose is the father of the two children: Angel and five-year-old Josue Ramirez-Marinero, who is still missing at this time.

Ramirez was interviewed by federal authorities, but is not a suspect in the mother's death or in the case of Josue's disappearance. Expect updates from WOWT 6 News as the story continues to develop.
