Major Harris Death – Boy, 3, found dead in bin after mother was shot dead
Major Harris Death – Obituary : Authorities said the search for 3-year-old Major Harris has come to a tragic end Thursday.
The 3-year-old’s body was found dumped in a bin, according to the Milwaukee police.
Major had been missing for a week, ever since his mother, 25-year-old Mallery Muenzenberger was found shot to death in the backyard of a Milwaukee home on Oct. 14.
Muenzenberger and her son lived in Onalaska, Wisconsin, and police said she and her son were last seen alive on Oct. 9th in Milwaukee.
Authorities initially struggled to identify Muenzenberger and notify her family, in part because she was not a local resident, but when they did make contact with relatives last Saturday, they learned her son was missing and issued an Amber Alert.
Authorities found Muenzenberger’s black SUV near a laundromat with stains of blood inside the car.
Milwaukee police and volunteers have searched parks, neighborhoods and even rural areas in Dodge and Washington counties.
On Wednesday, police confirmed they had taken two suspects into custody who they believed may have knowledge of what happened.
Police located Major’s body in a storage bin, according to a law enforcement source.
The crowd dissipated after about 15 minutes. The search for Major and for justice in his mother’s killing has dominated news coverage in Milwaukee.
