(Associated Press) The mother of a 4-year-old boy whose naked body was found on a South Texas beach last year admitted to authorities that she drove to Galveston in the middle of the night and dumped his body in the water, according to court documents.
Galveston police identified the child as Jayden Alexander Lopez. Authorities had named him "Little Jacob" after no one came forward to report him missing.
