Police found a 6-year-old boy’s body in the trunk of a vehicle, and his mother is in custody on suspicion of murder. The boy was a kindergarten student at Shirley Hills Primary School.
The Orono Police Department identified the woman arrested in relation to the death investigation as Julissa Thaler, 28-years-old. She is currently being held in Hennepin County Jail for probable cause murder.
