Skeletal Remains Might Belong to Missing Autistic Boy

Skeletal Remains Might Belong to Missing Autistic Boy

Skeletal remains found in Queens, NY, might belong to Avonte Oquendo, a 14-year-old Autistic boy who went missing from his school in September.

Police searched the East River when an arm washed up on shore in College Point, Queens. A 14-year-old girl walking along the banks of the river spotted the arm and tweeted about her macabre find before calling police.

“Instead of calling 911 right away, she got on Twitter and talked about it,” a police source told the NY Post. “Then she finally told her mom and they called 911.”

“We found the arm and it’s been here a while because it’s skeletal,” the source said. “But where there’s an arm, there’s a body.”

A pair of 5 1/2 sized boys sneakers found near the site of the arm’s discovery matched the description of the sneakers the boy was wearing when he disappeared, according to CBS 2 and the New York Post.

The NYPD have reportedly contacted the boy’s family.

      COLLEGE POINT, Queens (PIX11) – A human arm and legs that were discovered along the shore of College Point, Queens, are being investigated as a possibly belonging to Avonte Oquendo, a missing boy with autism who disappeared in October.

      Avonte Oquendo
      At 7:16 p.m. Thursday, near Powell Cove Boulevard and Endeavor Place, an arm was discovered by a teen, who took a picture of the body part and showed it to her mother back home, who then called police. Police then launched a search of the area, turning up two legs and a torso.

      The feet had a pair of size 5 1/2 Air Jordans, a police source told PIX11 News. Those are the kind of shoes Oquendo was wearing when he disappeared from a school in Long Island City on Oct. 4. The park where the body parts washed up is 11 miles from Oquendo’s school.

      The Oquendo’s family attorney, David Perecman, told PIX11 that underwear and jeans were found with the remains. The jeans found are the same size that Avonte wore. The brand is unknown. Perecman says the color of the jeans may have changed after being in water for so long. Perecman says the underwear could be a key part of the investigation.

      “The underwear may give further clues,” said Perecman.

      The NYPD Harbor Unit is searching for additional body parts that could belong to Avonte Oquendo.
      Perecman has been speaking with the family all night about the discovery and says his Avonte’s mother Vanessa is skeptical.

      BREAKING UPDATES ALL MORNING ON THE PIX11 MORNING NEWS. WATCH HERE.

      Police said the body parts are being taken to the Queens County Morgue and the medical examiner will determine the cause of death.

      A search for additional body parts resumed at 7 a.m. by the NYPD Harbor Unit, with a scuba team starting a water grid search.

      Oquendo’s mother, who has hoped that her son was being held by a kidnapper, has been notified and will be taken to the medical examiner’s office later today to examine clothing found on the body parts, police told PIX11 News. A police car is stationed outside her home in Rego Park, Queens. Perecman told PIX11 News that Oquendo’s mother should hold out hope until everything is confirmed with the remains.

      “This has been an unimaginably grim and horrific time for her and her family,” said Perecman.

      Avonte’s family has filed a notice of claim saying they planned to sue the city. The family claims that officials at the school allowed him to walk out and waited too long to notify police that he was missing.
