DNA has confirmed the remains found in Queens are Avonte Oquendo, the Medical Examiner says. His family has been informed.
Qquendo’s mother was notified early Tuesday afternoon, officials said. The cause and manner of death are pending.
Word comes after searchers found a skull in the waters off College Point, Queens over the weekend. A second arm and teeth were also recovered from the river, along with clothes matching those worn by Avonte.
The security guard and all the way up up to the principal and everyone in that school responsible for Avonte’s well being should be fired! May God have mercy on them for they will have to live the rest of their lives knowing they were responsible for this boy’s loss of life, and the heartache they have caused his family forever more!
So very sad.
Prayers for the family and may God have mercy on the negligent fool who let this kid get away.
