HAMPTON, Va. (WTKR) -- Documents from the Department of Forensic Science are shedding some light on the investigation into a Hampton toddler who disappeared and died this summer.
Noah Tomlin's body was found inside a Hampton Steam Plant more than a week after he was reported missing from his Buckroe Beach home by his mother.
According to new court documents, shortly after Noah was reported missing, investigators began testing items they thought could help them determine what happened to the toddler. They swabbed several suspected bloodstains, on walls, the headboard of a toddler's bed and a toy chest. They also tested clothing, parts of a car, a bed sheet and a blanket.
On one of the shirts tested, a red polo shirt size 5T, documents say blood was indicated in six different stains. Blood was also indicated in nine stains on a bed sheet, the documents stated.
Julia Tomlin has been behind bars for months. She has been charged with three counts of felony child neglect. No charges have been filed against her or anyone else in relation to Noah's disappearance and death.
