Prosecutor Carl Brizzi said his office would seek a two-year prison term for Dyer when she is sentenced Aug. 20. He said it was just happenstance that the boy was not hurt.

Body of missing boy found in garbage truck

LOUISVILLE — The body of a 4-year-old boy who disappeared outside his home near Churchill Downs was found in a garbage truck over the weekend, and authorities say he was killed.

Cezar “Ivan” Aguilar-Cano was last seen playing outside his apartment building on June 29 near the home of the Kentucky Derby. His death was a homicide, Jefferson County Coroner Ron Holmes said.

Trash workers discovered the body Saturday in the neighborhood where he was last seen alive.

Police had received more than 100 tips, and authorities, friends and neighbors organized extensive searches for the child. A Louisville-based advocacy group for missing children, the Exploited Children’s Help Organization, asked volunteers to take thousands of fliers door to door within a mile of the boy’s home to dig up leads.

No arrests have been made, authorities said.
