Larissa Rodriguez was originally charged with murdering her five year old, among other crimes. She would ultimately plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter, felonious assault, endangering children, and gross abuse of a corpse. Rodriguez was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
Her late son, Jordan, was born prematurely, and was non-verbal. He was found buried in a 4-foot by 4-foot grave in the family’s backyard, wrapped in blankets and trash bags by Rodriguez and her boyfriend, Christopher Rodriguez, after they woke up to find him dead on September 22, 2017.
Jordan’s body was not discovered until December, when a tip from Christopher’s brother, who was deployed overseas in Pakistan, led authorities to discover the grave behind the family’s home in Cleveland.
This is the police interrogation of Larissa Rodriguez in relation to the murder of her own son.
