Missing Toddler’s Remains found In Montana

by Contributing Editor

Authorities who were searching for Aiden Salcido, a 2-year-old Medford, Oregon, boy whose parents died in a murder-suicide in Kalispell, Montana believe they have found the child’s remains in a remote section of Montana, according to the FBI’s Los Angeles office. .

An intense search went underway to locate the toddler, according to Laura Eimiller of the L.A.’s FBI office, who added that there was no known connection to Southern California, but “many of the West Coast field offices are pushing this out to cast a wide net.”

Witnesses called in tips that led authorities to a camp believed to have been occupied by the child’s parents, police in Medford Oregon said in a statement issued to the media.

Positive identification has not yet been made, however, the decedent was located in the same area that Hannah Janiak and Daniel Salcido were seen by several witnesses days earlier. The cause of the boy’s death will await an autopsy, police said.

Aiden Salcido was last seen in the Medford area June 4, the FBI said. His father shot his mother to death and then killed himself Wednesday following a police pursuit in Kalispell, the FBI said.

The search began after Aiden’s parents Daniel Salcido and Hannah Janiak were convicted of burglary in Medford and Janiak failed to show up for sentencing June 11.

Financial records indicated Janiak bought camping equipment at a Medford Walmart June 3 and 4, the FBI said.

Relatives and friends told authorities they had no contact with Salcido and Janiak, the FBI said. They told authorities the trio were homeless and camped along the greenway in Medford. They said Janiak had mental health issues.

The parents were in a green 1996 GMC Jimmy when they led Kalispell police on a pursuit and the murder-suicide occurred, the FBI said. There was no evidence of a child having been in the vehicle.
