Police Search for Bodies of Missing Babies in Dump

Shazer Fernando Limas is suspected of killing his wife and their two children. The mother's body was found but police believe the 4-month-old and 2-year-old may have been dumped in a Brea landfill.

Police investigators and dogs searched a huge landfill today for the bodies of two baby boys believed to have been slain by their father.

Orange police Sgt. Dan Adams said at midafternoon that the search of the Brea landfill was likely to continue until sunset.

"The search is not due to any new tips or information," Adams said.

"This is just us being proactive because garbage from that apartment is dumped here."

Shazer Fernando Limas, 31, remained jailed today for suspicion of killing his wife, Arlet Hernandez Contreras, whose body was found April 25 in La Puente. She had been stabbed to death, and only identified by Los Angeles County coroners late Friday.

Her body was found in East Valinda, near the junction of the Pomona (60) and San Gabriel (605) freeways, the San Gabriel Valley Tribune reported. County workers were cleaning an area near MacLaren Street and Alderton Avenue -- a place known for trash dumping -- when they found a strange tarp that had a putrid odor.

They called sheriff's deputies, who uncovered the body. There was no explanation why it took so long for her remains to be identified.

Limas, arrested Friday, is suspected of killing her in the family's apartment in Orange at 3063 W. Chapman Ave., police said.

The couple's two boys, 2-years-old and 4-months-old, are also believed to be dead, but Limas has refused to cooperate with detectives and explain what happened to them, Adams said.

Early reports indicated a blood trail from the apartment to a trash chute led detectives to search the Brea Landfill, where garbage from the apartments is dumped. But an initial search turned up no signs of the boys.

Limas is in custody of Orange police.

May the mother of God's blessed children be their angel and show them the light to where life will not bring them harm. Vengeance will be sent to this disgusting man from God himself.

Lately I have been seeing alot of news of people kidnapping mothers and children. And others killing their significant others and their own children. SICK BASTARDS! Wish I could hand out their punishment. Makes me disgusted,saddened,furious. I hope they get raped to the point they want to die. But they shouldn't get the liberty to kill themselves. They should suffer everyday they are locked up.

Wow. Everyone is SO quick to jump to conclusions these days. Makes me sad. Not a single one of us knows for a fact that this man did indeed kill his family. It simply says that he is being held for suspicion and every one of the comments wishes great harm on the guy. He could be totally innocent and dying inside from the pain of randomly loosing his entire family, and now being looked at as the culprit. But we hear a tragic story and immediately look for someone to point a finger at. No one knows anything yet, nut he has already been charged, tried, convicted, and condemned by the media and public. It's sad. Of course if he DID do it he deserves the worst. But we simply DO NOT KNOW yet. We should realty look at ourselves when we become so closed minded as to condemn the unknown. It's not very 'Christian like' either. Just some food for thought.

Kids are always the innocent victim in cases like these, I hope and pray he didnt kill them too, domestic violences needs to stop, learn to let go, if your not treating someone with respect, they have the freedom to leave, a restraining order isnt enough to stop a man/woman from killing their spouse, Domestic Violence needs to be stopped!
keith Anderson May 07, 2012 at 08:23 AM
I pray for the family ..and if he committed the crime he needs to be charged to the fullest
mari torres May 07, 2012 at 11:26 AM

One comment stated that they wish if guilty that he gets the death penalty. I have a better punishment. If there is any videos available of the boys and their mother put together a vid on a loop. Incarcerate this "man" in solitary confinement and play the loop 24 hours a day. My prayers to this family.

I was really interested in this whole story, saddened, definitely, and horrified none the less. I pray for the Mother and the two little angels Involved. I grew up near where they found her body, its very tragic. I was curious to see if the suspect had a Facebook page, and to my disgusted dismay, he did. And his , I'm going on assumption, "Girlfriend" in the recent pics was not the victim.. it is insane, it leaves a lot of empty holes. I don't see how anyone can kill. Hell on earth..

You all are nuts for praying to a god who lets this shit happen.
