Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said police in Jasper, Texas, found a child’s body in a motel room believed to be 6-year-old Samuel Olson, who was reported missing last week in southwest Houston.


Police said the body was found Tuesday at the Best Western Inn on West Gibson Street in Jasper.

Chief Finner said a possible suspect is in custody and will be interviewed by homicide investigators.

Crime scene investigators went to the motel early Wednesday morning, according to our sister station, KHOU.

Samuel turned 6 years old Saturday. He was reported missing last Thursday.

HPD said they had DPS issue a child safety alert through CPS. They said that goes directly to law enforcement in the case that an officer comes in contact with people listed on that alert.
