Father Plans Funeral For Jeremiah Oliver

BOSTON (AP) — The father of a missing boy whose body was found off a Massachusetts highway said he plans to return from Connecticut to make funeral arrangements.

Jose Oliver tells The Boston Herald that he was “lost, angry and crushed” when the medical examiner called to say his son, Jeremiah Oliver, had been identified.

The 5-year-old boy’s body was found Friday and his identity announced on Saturday.

Oliver, of New Britain, Conn., says he plans to come to Massachusetts on Sunday to plan his son’s funeral.

The boy was last seen by relatives in September but wasn’t reported missing until December.

Jeremiah’s mother, Elsa Oliver, pleaded not guilty in March to charges including kidnapping, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and reckless endangerment.

Her boyfriend, Alberto Sierra, pleaded not guilty to similar charges.
