Thaddeus was first reported missing by his parents on July 15th.

At that time, his parents told police their child managed to get out of the house and disappear overnight.

Police say the boy’s parents stopped cooperating with them shortly after Thaddeus was reported missing.

His parents were charged with his murder after a body was found in a fire pit near Ave. 14 and Rd. 21 in Madera County.

Autopsy results have not yet come back on the burned remains of a child found last Thursday
