Authorities: Burned Remains Those of Neglected Chicago Boy

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO Aug 4, 2016, 10:32 PM ET

A 4-year-old boy whose malnourished, partially burned remains were found by Chicago firefighters had been kept in a back room of his family's home that reeked of feces and urine, prosecutors said Thursday.

When firefighters found Manuel Aguilar's body in an abandoned home on Tuesday, he was so small that investigators initially believed they had found a 9-month-old baby, Assistant State's Attorney Jamie Santini told Judge Maria Kuriakos Ciesil.

Santini said Manuel had been kept in a room where his family's bicycles were also kept and was often was left naked because he would urinate on himself. The boy would have to knock on the door to be allowed to use the restroom, he said.

"Witness stated that Manny didn't like being in the back room, and he would scream, 'Let me out,'" Santini said, referring to the boy.
