If you live here in the Washington D.C. area most likely you are very familiar with the story behind 11-year-old William McQuain. I was praying it would not end this way but unfortunately, reports are confirming police have located the remains of the boy’s body in rural Maryland.
Montgomery County police have found human remains they believe are those of 11-year-old William McQuain, who was last seen about two weeks ago.
The body was found Tuesday morning by a K-9 officer in a wooded area of the westbound shoulder of Route 121 near Route 355 in the Clarksburg area.
“We have found the remains of a body of a young male who we believe to be William McQuain,” Montgomery County Police Chief Thomas Manger said.
McQuain’s mother, Jane McQuain, 51, was found dead Wednesday in her Germantown apartment after a friend reported her missing. There was no sign of William, who lived with his mother.
Police arrested Curtis M. Lopez, McQuain’s estranged husband and charged him with murder. [source]
I’m so saddened…I’m not sure what would make a grown man kill his wife and her child. Just sad all the way around.
