Boy found dead in FREEZER after sister gave her school a note saying their mother was being held hostage

POLICE found the body of a four-year-old boy, whose mother told detectives he had been missing since December, in a basement freezer.

The boy’s sister gave her primary school teacher a note from her mother that “indicated her mother is being held against her will” and did not know where her son was, Las Vegas police said.

That set off an immediate police response and led to the arrest of Brandon Toseland and the questioning of the child’s mother on Tuesday night.

She told detectives she had not seen her son alive since December 11 and “had been abused by her live-in boyfriend, police said.

“She said she had inquired about her child’s whereabouts and believed her child may be dead,” police said at a news conference Tuesday night.

“She stated that she was not allowed out of the house and that she was not allowed into the garage of the residence.”

That’s where police said they found the freezer with the boy’s body in it.

This is still very early in the investigation, police stressed, and “there are still a lot of unanswered questions.”

As of Wednesday morning, Toseland is being held at the Clark County, Nevada jail on two counts of kidnapping, but will likely be charged with murder, according to police.

At this time, there are no charges against the mother, who has not been identified by police.

Anyone with any information about this incident is urged to contact the LVMPD Homicide Division at 702-828-3521, or by email at homicide@lvmpd.com.

To remain anonymous, police said to contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 or at www.crimestoppersofnv.com.

Las Vegas police did not return calls or emails from The Sun for more information Wednesday morning.
