Larissa Rodriguez, the jailed mother of a missing 5-year-old boy, led police to the abused body of her son Jordan on Tuesday according to the affidavit.
Jordan's disappearance went unknown until Monday, when the brother of Larissa Rodriguez's boyfriend, Christopher Rodriguez, called Cleveland police from Pakistan, police said.
Rodriguez was placed under arrest while authorities investigate her son's death but has not been criminally charged. That's when the boy's mother was taken into custody. According to the police report, she referred to Jordan's father as a "donor" who she met on Facebook. She allegedly said the 5-year-old boy, who has special needs and is unable to speak, left with his aunt on December 2 to visit his father in Texas.
Even without the official identification, the court records say the body found buried behind the home on West 80th Street belongs to Jordan, who was developmentally disabled and unable to speak.

She also was unable to provide any other information about her son, police reports say.
The four children who lived at the home were taken into emergency custody by the Cuyahoga County Children and Family Services. Rodriguez's sisters spoke to WJYC-TV and said they "called children's protective services on Larissa numerous times". A social worker noted that one of the children inside the home was eating a cockroach-filled sandwich when they arrived. "I don't know why they would do this to him". Jordan was reportedly a special needs child and was speech-impaired.
Rodriguez's boyfriend, Chris, has been in jail since October on unrelated charges. He is now in custody for not paying child support. According to documents from children and family services, a neglect complaint was filed four days after the child was born on April 3, 2003.
