When police and volunteers could not find the child, Sgt. Jason Lundquist says Sanchez told him that Frankie had spent the weekend with her adult son in Killeen. Lundquist said Sanchez's brother called him on Tuesday and said she confessed about the death of Frankie. During a police interview, Sanchez allegedly admitted she was the only one taking care of Frankie when he died on May 28.
According to the affidavit, Sanchez said she kept the boy's body in her house until May 30, and then placed him in the Dumpster behind a church near the intersection of 27th and Alice.
Laura Sanchez was booked into jail on first-degree felony injury to a child charge, Waco Police said. Police said there could be more charges against Sanchez at a later date.
