Bones of a child was found amidst pigs at a property in Kansas City, and a man was suspected of murdering his seven year old son informed Wyandotte County Coroner Dr. Alan Hancock. Though, Coroner’s office has not yet confirmed whether the bones found there belongs to Michael A Jones’ son. The 44 year old was known for assaulting his son. The national headlines claiming that Jones killed his son and fed to the pigs caught the attention of the nation. These claims were not clarified by the police.

Meanwhile, Hancock informed CNN that bones of a child that are yet to be identified were found in the pigs’ enclosure for several weeks now. Earlier, the police was called in on Wednesday for domestic violence involving Jones’ 29 year old wife Heather Jones. The information was given by Wyandotte County District Attorney Jerome A Gorman on Monday. While on the investigation for domestic violence police noticed that their son was not around. The following day authorities found out human remains in the pig barn.

The missing boy was referred to as “AJ” by the police. Meanwhile, the authorities have rescued six girls that are less than 11 years of age from the home. These girls were taken into police protective custody. Gorman said that child welfare services in the state and neighboring states are in contact with the family and yet the nature of the contact was not revealed by the police. Meanwhile, Gorman did not provide any information on whether any investigation was being conducted with the children.

Adding to this Gorman said that the assault was the result of the violence between Jones and Heather. Gorman also informed that detective work has to be done to reveal more information and it is only the beginning. Asking the reporters to remain patient Gorman informed that the police are working on this case without even spending time with their family for Thanksgiving Day. He informed that lot of work is to be done before charges are warranted. The information is being conducted by the local Sheriff’s department, prosecutor’s office and Kansas department for children and families informed Gorman. The bail was held at $10 million with no reduction.
