Arrest made in missing child case

An arrest has been made in the case of the 13-month-old boy’s body that the Laramie County Sheriff’s Department says was put in a garbage bin at Laramie County Community College.

According to a press release from the Sheriff’s Department, Logan Hunter Rogers, a 23-year-old Cheyenne resident, was arrested on the night of Oct. 27 in connection with the death of the missing boy. A search warrant was executed the night of Oct. 27 at 1529 Hellwig No. 12 in Cheyenne. Rogers was taken into custody and some biological evidence was taken from the home, the release said.

According to his Facebook page, Rogers is a former LCCC student. He lists August 2014 as the date he started taking classes in the diesel program.

The release says Rogers is scheduled to make his initial court appearance in Laramie County Circuit Court at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 28. Rogers will face charges of manslaughter and reckless child endangering.

The search for the child’s body will begin at sunrise on Monday, Oct. 31, at the landfill in Ault, Colorado. The press release said the child’s body was first placed in a garbage bin at LCCC, and the contents of the bin were picked up earlier this week and taken to the landfill in Ault.
