News: Mom of missing Savannah toddler charged with his murder

Leilani Simon, 22, reported her 20-month-old son missing on Oct. 5.

A missing Savannah, Georgia, mother found the remains of baby Quinton Simon in a landfill, police announced Monday. After that, he was charged with murder.

Leilani Simon, 22, reported her 20-month-old son missing on Oct. 5. A week later, Chatham County police said they believed Quinton was dead and authorities named the boy’s mother as the primary suspect.

On October 18, police said they believed Quinton had been dumped in a dumpster and were searching for his body at a local landfill. “Searchers spent 30 days digging through 1.2 million pounds of trash,” police said.

Police said they could not arrest anyone other than Simon. And Chatham County police said, “Simon has been charged with malice murder, concealing the death of another person, making a false report, and making a false statement.”

 Police said searchers found the remains at the landfill on Friday and tests are now underway to determine if the remains are Quinton’s.

“Working conditions were gruesome and dangerous, and searchers knew the chances of finding Quinton were slim,” police said in a statement.

  “We are indebted to the many law enforcement and public service agencies that assisted in this investigation,” said Chatham County Police Chief Jeff Hadley.
