CORONA, Calif. (KTLA) -- Investigators announced at a news conference Thursday that the disappearance of 8-year-old Corona boy Noah McIntosh is now considered a homicide case.
In order to preserve the integrity of the investigation, authorities did not provide specific details.
Police said traces of evidence have been found that “leave no doubt that Noah is the victim of a homicide.”
Authorities said Noah’s father Bryce has been charged with first degree murder.
McIntosh was reported missing by his mother in early March.
His parents were arrested earlier this month, accused of child abuse.
