BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
The body of a missing two-year-old boy has been found in east Birmingham, police confirm.
Threat was last seen after midnight during a wedding reception with
about 50-70 people in the 5600 block of Crestwood Boulevard. His body
was found in a swimming pool at the location.
Officers and other
authorities initially searched the pool and the surrounding area, but it
did not appear that he was in the pool, according to Lt. Sean Edwards
with the Birmingham Police Department.
He noted that the pool
water was murky. Threat's body was found several hours later, Edwards
said. A K-9 officer assisted with the six-hour search.
Edwards said that homeowners initially did not want investigators to enter the home.
"There was a little hesitation," he said. "Cooperation wasn't there 100-percent initially."
half of a dozen people--including the child's parents-- are at
administration building as police try to piece together what happened.
The coroner is expected to examine Threat's body.
