Update on Missing Son Found in Basement

Remember this morning's story about the father who found out his missing son was found in the home of his basement live on Nancy Grace? Not surprisingly, there were apparent parental shenanigans afoot.


From WXYZ in Detroit:

Detroit Police say they have taken Charlie Bothuell's stepmother, Monique Dillard-Bothuell, into custody

. We're told there was a bench warrant out for her arrest.

Police also confirm that Child Protective Services has removed two other children from the home.



Charlie was released from the hospital Thursday morning and is now with his mother where he has been interviewed by the FBI and other investigators.

Action News has also learned of a new twist in the case. The uncle of Monique Charlie's stepmother has a listed address three doors away from where the search had been going on.

That home is the end unit of the same condominium building. The units are connected by an underground hallway.

Charlie's stepmother's uncle is Detroit attorney Godfrey Dillard. Action News reached him on the phone to ask about the case and Monique and he refused to comment.


The story doesn't say if they suspect the father of any wrongdoing, but apparently he hasn't seen his son yet.

Stay tuned . . .
