Santa Cruz Police Confirm Identity of Body Found in Trash

Authorities have confirmed that a body found in a trash bin is that of an 8-year-old girl who disappeared from her Northern California housing complex. Santa Cruz Police Chief Kevin Vogel said Tuesday at a news conference that the remains are those of Madyson Middleton. The search for the Santa Cruz girl ended Monday night when a detective discovered the body at the artist community and housing center where she lived with her mother. Vogel says a 15-year-old boy, who also lives in the complex, was arrested on suspicion of murder.
