Arrest in Ana Diaz homicide case
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The Merced County Sheriff's Department held a news conference Thursday announcing the arrests of a man and a woman in the murder of Ana Diaz. Her burned body was found December 7th in an orchard.
An infant believed to be Diaz' missing son was later found abandoned on a doorstep.
Merced County Sheriff's Deputies say a couple approached someone in Merced earlier this month with a baby in a car seat and asked if they wanted to buy the infant.
Authorities conducted test results to determine if a baby found alive in Le Grand a few weeks ago was the son of Ana Diaz. Her burned body was found in an orchard near Snelling a few weeks ago.
