In a grim discovery that has shaken the community of Pueblo, Colorado, the remains of a child were unearthed from within a metal container encased in concrete, found inside a storage unit. The unsettling find has prompted an intensive investigation by the Pueblo Police Department, which is now also fervently searching for two siblings, Jesus Dominguez and Yesenia Dominguez, who mysteriously vanished in the summer of 2018 and have not been seen since.
The police were alerted to the chilling scene on January 10, following a report concerning the suspicious container located in a storage facility on the 600 block of West 6th Street. Upon inspection, the Pueblo Police Special Victims Unit alongside the Crime Scene Investigations Unit made the heart-wrenching discovery of the child’s remains embedded in the concrete-filled container.
The identification of the victim is pending, with the Pueblo County Coroner’s Office tasked with this solemn duty. Meanwhile, the Pueblo police are treating this case with the utmost gravity, approaching it as a homicide investigation, indicative of the sinister implications surrounding the child’s death, reported The New York Times.
The broader scope of the investigation has led authorities to launch a search for Jesus and Yesenia Dominguez, siblings whose disappearance has remained a mystery for several years. At the time of her last sighting, Yesenia was approximately three years old, and her current age would be nine. Jesus, on the other hand, was around five years old when he was last seen, making him about 10 years old today.
The prolonged absence of these children, coupled with the recent grim discovery, has cast a shadow of urgency and concern over the investigation. In their pursuit of clarity and justice, Pueblo Police have conducted interviews with two individuals deemed as persons of interest in this complex case. The information gleaned from these interviews could potentially shed light on the circumstances surrounding the child’s tragic demise and the whereabouts of the missing Dominguez siblings.
This case has undoubtedly cast a pall over the city of Pueblo, as the community grapples with the unsettling realities of the investigation. The police are committed to unraveling the details of this case, with the hope of bringing closure to the families affected and ensuring that justice is served for the young victims.
