According to the FBI’s Atlanta field office, DNA analysis confirmed that bones discovered at a landfill in Savannah, Georgia, on November 18 2022, belonged to missing toddler Quinton Simon.

The 20-month-old boy was reported missing on the morning of October 5 2022, by his mother, Leilani Simon.

She claimed he vanished from his playpen inside their Georgia home at the time. Authorities initially believed there was no foul play.

Throughout the police search for her missing child, Simon remained hopeful that he would be found alive.

Leilani Simon stated in an interview with WTOC-TV that she wanted to find him “joyful and alive We want him to be in our arms again, holding us. That’s exactly what we want.”

“We’re just hoping that he’s in somebody’s house and they’re feeding him and maybe they wanted a baby or couldn’t have a baby,” she told WTOC-TV. “Maybe they thought they were his saviour. That’s our best hope at this point.”

Leilani Simon has since been arrested and charged with malice murder, concealing another person’s death, and other charges. It was unclear whether Simon had entered a plea or retained an attorney to speak on her behalf.
