Cause of death is sought for remains found buried in yard

The FBI is now helping Cleveland police investigate the disappearance of a 5-year-old boy who is said to have been buried in the backyard of a home on West 80th Street

The mother of a young disabled boy is behind bars after authorities found a deceased young child's body buried in the backyard of an OH home.

New documents released Thursday listed a date of death for Jordan Rodriguez as September 22 but did not list a cause.

But someone from Pakistan, reportedly the child's step-uncle, had already called OH police to warn that Rodriguez had buried the child in her backyard after he died, according to KOAA. She's previously lost custody of other children and her sisters say she's also six months pregnant with a daughter.

Children's protective services also removed four of Rodriguez's nine children from the home after they found it infested with cockroaches and rats. She was unable to provide contact information for the boy's biological father or the aunt, police reports say.

When authorities searched Rodriguez's home and yard Tuesday, they found human remains consistent with those of a child.

Police believe the body, found through a tipster in Pakistan, is that of the missing Jordan.

.

The affidavit said the children were in "immediate danger" because of the conditions in the home and the investigation involving the mother.

The caller was the brother of Larissa's boyfriend, Christopher Rodriguez, according to Cleveland.com, which reported, "He told police that Christopher Rodriguez called him from jail and told him that Christopher and Larissa both buried Jordan in the backyard of the home two months ago after finding him unresponsive".




In the past, the county took two children away permanently.

The four children who lived at the home were taken into emergency custody by the Cuyahoga County Children and Family Services.

A neighbor, who said she was good friends with the mom, gave a different account of the woman's parenting abilities.

One of the children was seen eating a sandwich that contained cockroaches, the county affidavit said.

That caller from Pakistan said Rodriguez assured her other kids that Jordan was in Texas.

Christopher Rodriguez, Larissa's husband, is now in Medina County Jail for failing to pay child support.

Children and Family Services had intervened with Larissa's custody of children as early as 1998, according to court records.
