A boy who died Saturday under suspicious circumstances in Palmdale could have been removed from the custody of his parents in May, the NBCLA I-Team has learned.
Two sources familiar with the case of 4-year-old Noah Cuatro say a judge granted a removal request from an LA County Department of Children and Family Social worker, but it was not immediately clear why the order was never carried out. The NBCLA I-Team is looking into why the order was not enforced.
Noah was pronounced dead on July 6 after his parents, Jose and Ursula, called 911 to report that he had drowned in the community pool at the apartment complex where the family lived on East Avenue S in Palmdale. An autopsy is pending, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff.
The child was taken first to Palmdale Regional Medical Center and then to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
CORINNE, Utah — A body has been discovered in a city park in Corinne and a Box Elder County Sheriff’s Office representative is calling the death suspicious.
On Thursday afternoon, the Box Elder County Sheriff’s Office identified the body as that of 16-year-old Marcus Elkins.
A news release from the Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded to the Bill Flack Park shortly before 8 a.m. Thursday.
“Investigation reveals that Elkins did not die at this location and was brought to the park sometime after death,” the news release said.
Further details about the circumstances surrounding Marcus’ death were not immediately available, but investigators with the Sheriff’s Office said there were no signs of external trauma on Marcus, and sources told them he had been seen as late as 10 p.m. Wednesday.

ANN ARBOR, MI — For years, Charles Jarnot has insisted his 89-year-old World War II veteran father didn’t need to die the way he did — choking on his dinner.
Jarnot, 61, of Milford, Kansas has persistently accused Ann Arbor’s Glacier Hills nursing home, where Walter Jarnot lived, of negligence and failure to report his father’s Sept. 4, 2015 death to the Washtenaw County Medical Examiner’s Office, as required by law.
Four years later, Ann Arbor police have reopened the death investigation and the case is currently under review for possible criminal charges at the Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office, Ann Arbor Police Lt. Aimee Metzer says.
Neither Metzer nor Washtenaw County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Steven Hiller have said what led them to revisit the investigation, but it appears to be at least in part due to Charles Jarnot’s persistence.
