Denver, Colorado — A woman in San Jose, California was arrested in Las Vegas for the murder of her seven-year-old son, and was arrested in Denver on Tuesday morning.
Samantha Moreno Rodriguez, 35, was detained on Tuesday by an agent of the Denver Rocky Mountain Safe Street Task Force, led by the FBI.
On May 28, law enforcement issued an arrest warrant after a hiker found the body of his son Liam Hasted, 7, near Mountain Springs Trailhead, not far from Las Vegas.
Hasted and his mother left San Jose on May 24 and were last seen at Laguna Beach on May 26.
Three days later, on May 29, the car they were in was found near Grand Junction, Colorado.
Law enforcement later said the woman had checked in herself into a hotel room in the Denver area.
Rodriguez has been imprisoned in a prison in the Denver area for one undisclosed murder pending delivery to Las Vegas, according to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police arrest breaking news.
