NO BODY, NO CRIME???
Jeffrey Fairbanks, the father of missing and presumed dead 3 month old Janna Rivera, has been arrested in Marion County, Indiana and charged with murder and the neglect of a dependent child resulting in a death. The Marion County Prosecutor’s office is expected to release more information about the arrest Friday. 3 month old Janna Rivera has been missing since Friday, May 29, 2015 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Authorities searched for the missing baby, including looking for the infant at a local landfill. It was suspected from the outset of this missing person case that the child was deceased. Initially, Fairbanks told Eyewitness News at the time the child died of natural causes, then he placed her body in a dumpster at an east Indianapolis apartment complex. Janna’s remains have never been found.
