The toddler whose body washed ashore in Texas last month has been tentatively identified as a 2-year-old girl, and her mother and a man identified as her boyfriend were arrested Saturday, the Galveston County Sheriff's office said Sunday.
Police believe two-year-old Riley Ann Sawyers may be "Baby Grace."
Investigators believe the child they dubbed "Baby Grace" is actually 2-year-old Riley Ann Sawyers, the Galveston County Sheriff's office said Sunday.
DNA analysis is still in progress to confirm that identification.
The child's mother, Kimberly Dawn Trenor, 19, and a man identified as Royce Clyde Zeigler II, 24, were arrested Saturday on charges of injuring a child and tampering with physical evidence, the sheriff's department said.
The couple lives in Spring, Texas, a Houston suburb about 75 miles north of Galveston.
Trenor and Zeigler are charged with injury to a child and tampering with evidence. They are being held on $350,000 bail.
Galveston County District Attorney Kurt Sistrunk has said he could seek capital murder charges from a grand jury, depending on the results of a continuing investigation.
