The body of 8-month-old Eddie Salazar Jr. was found Saturday wedged against a tree on the bank of the Spring River near Carthage. Two days earlier the boy's father, Eddie Salazar Sr., told police two masked men had knocked him out and taken his son.
But police said Salazar eventually admitted making up the story and a tip led them to the child's body.
The Carthage Press reports that Prosecutor Dean Dankelson said he is waiting for results of an autopsy before filing any charges. In the meantime, Salazar is being held in Jasper County Jail on the false report charge, with bond set at $100,000.
