Landfill search for infant's remains postponed

CHEYENNE, WYO. (AP) - Wyoming authorities have postponed their plan to search a northern Colorado landfill for the body of a missing 13-month-old boy until Tuesday.

Capt. Linda Gesell of the Laramie County Sheriff's Office says her office secured a search warrant Monday morning for a landfill in Ault, Colorado, and is moving resources to the scene.

Twenty-three year-old Logan Hunter Rogers of Cheyenne is charged with manslaughter and reckless child endangerment in the death of Silas Anthony Ojeda of Cheyenne.

Investigators say Rogers was Ojeda's mother's boyfriend.

Investigators say Rodgers first said the boy had gone fishing with another man.

Investigators say Rogers later said Ojeda died Oct. 20 after falling from a counter at home and that Rogers put his body in a trash container. Trash from the container goes to Colorado.
