Police said the mother was questioned by police Tuesday and told detectives that Toseland had her detained “against her will” at their Las Vegas home and had not seen her son. live since December 11, police said.

Less than 24 hours later, the boy’s mother/grandmother – Diane White-Maldonado – told The Sun that her daughter and elementary niece were staying with her.

“I was able to talk to her. I went to pick her up yesterday. She was around us and falling apart. I didn’t want to get involved in anything anymore,” she said.

Her daughter introduced Toseland as her boyfriend a few months after her husband and biological father passed away in January 2021.

“There were red flags right in his first encounter with our family,” said White-Maldonado. “And I think he knows that.

“He chose to stay away. He tried to isolate her from our family because he showed some jealousy and insecurity.”

She said she didn’t want to go into details because her little niece was already in the spotlight.

MOTHER CALLS A NOTE TO Daughter

The situation on Tuesday quickly escalated after the boy’s mother dropped her daughter off at school with a note addressed to her elementary school teacher.

Las Vegas police said at a news conference Tuesday night, the note “indicates that her mother is being held against her will” and has no idea where her son is.

Police said they prevented Toseland from leaving the car with the boy’s mother and eventually arrested him on charges of murder and kidnapping.

He appeared in court on Wednesday morning.

The boy’s mother told detectives that she was “inquiring about her son’s whereabouts and believes he may be dead,” police said at a news conference on Tuesday.

“She stated that she was not allowed out of the house and that she was not allowed into the garage of the residence.”

That’s where police said they found the freezer with the boy’s body in it.

This is still very early in the investigation, police stressed, and “there are still a lot of unanswered questions.”

As of Wednesday afternoon, no charges have been filed against the boy’s mother and police have not responded to calls and emails asking if they consider her a suspect.
