Father of missing California boy was flight risk

Father of missing California boy was flight risk

"After reviewing all of the evidence in this case, Homicide Investigators presented the facts to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office and obtained a murder filling against the suspect", the Sheriff's Department said in a release posted to Facebook.

As NBC 4 Los Angeles reports, members of the missing boy's family have been stunned by the arrest of Aramazd Andressian Sr. on suspicion of his son's murder. It's also not clear why the California native was in Nevada at the time of his arrest.

"This is one of those cases that tore people's hearts", Capt. Christopher Bergner of the Sheriff's Department Homicide Bureau said at a news conference Monday.

Detectives were assisted in the arrest by the sheriff's Major Crimes Bureau Fugitive Taskforce, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, and the Pacific Southwest Regional Fugitive Taskforce of the United States Marshals Service, she said.

The 5-year-old's body has not been found, but homicide investigators say there's enough evidence to charge his father with murder. She added she would not have authorized charges to be filed in the case if she wasn't confident a jury would convict the father. "We've had a chance to gather evidence", said Mendoza.

Almost a week after the boy was reported missing, Andressian released a statement through his attorney. "I am counting the days until I see you honey and I will never stop looking for you", she said. The boy was with his father on April 20, the last time he was seen.

Andressian Sr. had been found unconscious at Arroyo Park in South Pasadena later that morning; the boy was nowhere to be seen.

The mother told investigators she had handed off Aramazd to his father about 8 a.m. April 15 in Baldwin Park, authorities said. "Aramazd Andressian was being a flight risk", Sheriff Jim McDonnell said. Matches and gas were found inside the vehicle.

At Monday's news conference, sheriff's officials said they believed the father was trying to kill himself.

"I miss him terribly", Estevez said in May. The police had started by searching the park where the father was found with police dogs.

Searchers have fanned out across several counties to try to find the boy, at least twice narrowing their search around a lake area in Santa Barbara County.

Joe Mendoza said the investigation into the death included several weeks of surveillance, during which the suspect "consistently" changed his appearance, acted in a manner inconsistent with the behavior of a grieving parent and appeared to be planning to flee the country. Investigators have searched his home and his mother's home.

Detectives believe Andressian killed his son in an attempt to get back at his estranged wife for their "tumultuous" relationship, Mendoza said. If my son was missing, I would be doing things that (the boy's mother) was doing. "He was socializing in Vegas", Mendoza said.

Aramazd Andressian Sr. was arrested Friday afternoon in Las Vegas on suspicion of Aramazd Andressian Jr.'s murder. They believe they left Disneyland together and then went to a lake in Santa Barbara County.
