On-Going Investigation into Death of Infant

At 10:37 a.m. on Monday, May 27, 2019, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) began investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of an infant found behind a business in Bellflower, CA.

The investigation led LASD to Sacramento, where detectives have connected the infant’s death with a local missing person case. The missing person, 22-year-old Alexander Echeverria (see attached), is currently outstanding. Echeverria was reported missing by family members on May 27, 2019. At the time, he was believed to be traveling with his 8-month-old daughter, Alexia Rose Echeverria. Alexia has been identified as the victim in this case by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office.

Alexander Echeverria is believed to be driving a gray 2014 Volkswagon Jetta with CA license plate 7FFT866 (see attached). He currently resides in the 6300 block of Requa Way in South Sacramento.

Alexander is considered a person of interest in the death of Alexia. He is considered at-risk due to suicidal statements made to family members recently.

Alexander was last seen in Southern California early Monday morning. The Sacramento Sheriff’s Office is currently working with local and federal agencies to identify the whereabouts of Alexander.

Anyone knowing the whereabouts of Alexander Echeverria is urged to contact the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office at (916) 874-5115 or Sacramento Valley Crime Stoppers at (916) 443-HELP. Tip information may also be left anonymously at www.sacsheriff.com or by calling (916) 874-TIPS (8477).
