Jayden Alexander Lopez was a child whose body washed up on the shore of a beach located at Galveston, Texas in October 2017.  He was identified in June 2018.

Case

Two people walking on a beach found the child’s nude body in a sandy area. His body is said to have no obvious trauma, and investigators are waiting for the medical examiner to find out why the child died.

Police stated they suspect foul play in the child's death, despite the fact that it is still unknown how he died.

In late January 2018, the FBI released his morgue photograph.

On June 20, 2018, it was announced his mother and her girlfriend were arrested and charged with tampering with evidence and fabricating physical evidence.
