Body found in Des Plaines River may be missing Maywood boy

The grandmother of a missing boy from Maywood will learn today if a body found in the Des Plaines River is her grandson.

One-year-old Bryeon Hunter was reported missing a month ago.

His mother told police he was kidnapped.

But Lakeshia Baker later said she and her boyfriend, Michael Scott, beat the boy to death and dumped his body in the Des Plaines River.

Both have been charged with murder.

A volunteer who spent weeks looking for the boy believes the body he found Tuesday is Hunter.

Hunter’s grandmother was told she could identify the body today.
