DALLAS – Police are sifting through hundreds of tips and leads to discover the name of a little boy whose body was found on a beach in Southeast Texas last week.
It's the second time in a decade that residents and law enforcement in Galveston have struggled to identify a lifeless child found on the shores of their beach community.
The Galveston Police Department is working with federal and state agencies in a national search for the young Hispanic boy's identity — and to find out why no one has reported him missing. The medical examiner hasn't determined a cause of death.
Police Capt. Joshua Schirard says investigators have "gotten probably close to a thousand tips from the news stories and social media posts that have been out there."
