(WRAL) RALEIGH NC – Investigators have arrested the parents of a missing 2-year-old boy, charging his father with murder and his mother with misdemeanor child abuse, Raleigh police said Thursday morning.
“Investigative developments overnight by Raleigh Police Department detectives have led the Tristan Blue missing-person case in a new direction,” spokesman Jim Sughrue said in a statement.
Steven Daniel Blue, 31, and Briana Loriel Dangerfield, 25, both of 5416 Portree Place, #1, Raleigh, were taken into custody Thursday morning. Blue was being held in the Wake County jail without bond; Dangerfield was jailed under a $100,000 bond.
Tristan’s body, however, has not been found, and police did not provide any other details about the case.
