Police searching for missing Georgia boy find 2 bodies

ROSWELL, Ga. — Police officers searching for a missing boy discovered two bodies Friday near the suburban Atlanta apartment complex where the child disappeared.

Roswell police officer Lisa Holland said officers began searching for 4-year-old Jesus Dominguez after his mother was found severely beaten and unresponsive Thursday afternoon in the family's apartment. Also missing from the home was the boy's father, Carlos Alberto Dominguez, Holland said.

Officers discovered the bodies of a male child and a man in a nearby wooded area late Friday morning. Holland said authorities believe the bodies are that of the boy and his father and are treating the case as a murder-suicide.

The cause of death was not immediately available. Holland said that information, along with the names, would be released by the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office.

Holland said the boy's mother, Sandra Rivera Ruiz, remains hospitalized and has yet to regain consciousness. Holland said police believe the attack occurred several hours before she was found.

Holland told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the woman's two other children, a 5-year-old girl and a 10-year-old boy, were at school during the attack. Police said the children are with relatives.
