MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A Memphis funeral home is offering its services to relatives of a 3-year-old boy whose body was found in a large trash bin after he was reported missing by his father.
Andre Jones, director of operations for R.S. Lewis Funeral Home, tells The Commercial Appeal that the family visited the business Wednesday but did not make a decision on which funeral home to use.
Police said Maurice Jones Jr. was found in a trash bin Tuesday, about 1 mile from where he was staying with his father, Maurice Brown Sr.
The father reported him missing Sunday night, saying he woke up from a nap to find his apartment door open and his son missing. After investigating, police arrested Brown Sr. and charged him with aggravated child neglect or endangerment.
