Update: Police Say Missing Grand Rapids Toddler is Dead

Police Chief Kevin Belk says 2-year-old Jozlynn Martinez, who disappeared earlier this week from her home on Grand Rapids' west side, is dead. Belk says Friday that 40-year-old Jeffrey Malmberg told investigators that Jozlynn died Monday night at the home, and he placed the child's body in a nearby trash container. Malmberg lived with Jozlynn's mother, Consuela Martinez, but was not the toddler's father. The Grand Rapids Press says police have searched the Kent County waste dump for the girl's body but have not found it. Malmberg was arrested Wednesday night in the Lansing area and was charged with kidnapping Jozlynn. He also was charged with larceny for allegedly taking $2,800 from Martinez's purse. He remains held on $1 million bond in the Kent County Jail. (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
