CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Wyoming authorities have identified the 13-month old boy whose body they believe was taken to a landfill in northern Colorado.

Capt. Linda Gesell of the Laramie County Sheriff’s Office identified the victim as 13-month old Silas Anthony Ojeda of Cheyenne.

Gesell says 23-year-old Logan Hunter Rogers of Cheyenne was set to appear in court Friday afternoon in Cheyenne on charges of manslaughter and reckless child endangering.

But that hearing was cancelled after Gesell says Rogers asked to speak with detectives again.

Gesell says Rogers does not yet have a lawyer. No one else has been arrested.

Gesell says someone at the boy’s home told investigators that Ojeda’s body was dumped in a trash container in Cheyenne.

Trash from the container is discarded in a private landfill in Ault, Colorado.
