SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – The FBI is still in possession of Quinton Simon’s remains.
What was found of the little boy’s body continues to undergo testing in a crime lab, a spokesperson for the FBI said.
His remains were found in a landfill on Nov. 18 after weeks of searching.
Since then, Quinton’s mother Leilani Simon has been arrested and formally charged in the death of the 20-month-old. She faces a 19-count indictment including one count of malice murder and two counts of felony murder.
According to the indictment, Leilani left her home the night of Oct. 4 to meet her drug dealer, and again early Oct. 5 to toss Quinton’s body in the dumpster at Azalea Mobile Home park.
That morning, Leilani told police that Quinton had been taken.
Leilani’s status hearing for Jan. 11 has been canceled. With her case now in Chatham County Superior Court, a status hearing is set for Feb. 13.
