Authorities have arrested the mother of a missing toddler whose body was found this week.
Charisse Stinson, 21, has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder, WFTS reports.
Stinson initially told police a man named "Antwan" offered her and her son a ride Saturday night. She told police a freakish story about getting into a auto with man she didn't know before being knocked unconscious by him.
An AMBER Alert was activated for the state, and investigators released a composite sketch of an alleged suspect based on Stinson's description.
Largo Police Department Lt. Randall Chaney said during a Wednesday news conference that an autopsy will be performed. Belliveau said Stinson found out about the study Friday of last week, a day before she reported him missing.
They say according to a report, during a moment of frustration the defendant (Stinson) admitted she struck the victim in the face with the back of her hand, which in turn caused the back of his head to strike an interior wall of the home.
He flourished and grew in a community that loved him deeply as well.
Meanwhile, Jordan's paternal family members are left wondering how this could have happened.
While in the vehicle, Stinson told investigators, the man had struck her in the face, knocking her unconscious.
The Florida Department of Children and Families said the family is "familiar to the child welfare system", and the agency "will conduct a special review of any prior interactions".
"We hope Jordan's loss will lead to change that is needed to protect other endangered children in the system".
System failure is what Jordan's paternal family blames as well. "He was failed by many people".
"Promises that were made to us about how he would be protected after his return were broken", said Warren.
"If not for a court order, he would still be safe in our home. There was no feeling with them that there was any remorse, only her attempting to escape the reality of the story by making things up as she went", Chaney said.
"The loss of this child is profoundly saddening".
"This was a sad end to Jordan's life", Largo police said on Facebook.
