Missing Illinois boy AJ Freund found dead, and his parents are now charged
The body of a 5-year-old boy reported as missing last week was found wrapped in plastic in a shallow grave, and his parents have been charged with his murder, police said on Wednesday. Soon after beginning their investigation, police said it was likely the boy, Andrew "AJ" Freund, was neither abducted nor walked away from the family's home in Crystal Lake, outside of Chicago. Instead, the investigation has focused on the home itself.
