Nikko Lee Perez (November 8, 1996 - 1997) was an infant whose skeletal remains were found in a cooler in 2007.

Case

A fisherman found the skeletal remains in a metal cooler in the Conway Canal near the Sacramento River.

The cooler is believed to have been in the water as long as six months and had been weighed down with stones, pieces of metal rotors, a brick, and pieces of U-shaped metal.

His father, Paul Perez, has been arrested in relation to his murder. He is also believed to be responsible for the deaths of his four siblings, three of whom have never been found.
