I think there are only 3 likely explainations
1. Some bully burried the child in sand with the act of bullying having terrible and unintendned results.
2. The child had one of his friends burry him in sand, with neither child realizing the tragic consequences.
3. A "garden variety" pedophile killed the boy then disposed of the body in the sand. This may not be likely because the article did not describe trauma.
For nearly a week, who the toddler was, how he died, and who put him there were a chilling mystery until Thursday, when a drawing of the youngster circulated by police led to the arrest of a young mother on murder charges.
Albuquerque police said Tiffany Toribio, 23, confessed to suffocating her 3-year-old son, Tyruss "Ty" Toribio, as he slept on the climbing gym — a crime so cold-blooded that neighbors struggled to comprehend it, and even veteran officers became choked up.
Toribio was homeless and sleeping in the park, having been kicked out of her mother's home and a friend's apartment in the days before her son's death because she was ignoring the boy and withholding affection, investigators said.
"What makes this story especially sad was when asked the reason why she took Ty's life, Tiffany said that she did not want him to grow up with no one caring about him the same way that she had grown up with no one caring about her," said Police Chief Ray Schultz, his eyes watery and his voice thick with emotion.

I can understand mothers that commit suicide and take their kids with them, that extreme attachment and they just can't leave them behind.

Regardless of what act might follow, killing one's children is murder and is made no less heinous by suicide.
