Man Says Compound Remains are Those of His Grandson

THE MEDICAL INVESTIGATOR SAYS IT COULD TAKE WEEKS TO I-D THE REMAINS OF A CHILD FOUND BURIED AT A COMPOUND WHERE 11 OTHER CHILDREN WERE FOUND TO BE STARVING. BUT THE BOY’S GRANDFATHER, IMAM SIRAJ WAHHAJ, SAYS THE REMAINS ARE THOSE OF HIS GRANDSON, ABDUL-GHANI WAHHAJ.

THAT COMPOUND NEAR AMALIA IN TAOS COUNTY WAS RAIDED RECENTLY, AND POLICE ARRESTED THE BOY’S FATHER … SIRAJ WAHHAJ … ALONG WITH THREE WOMEN AND ANOTHER MAN. ALL FIVE FACE CHILD ABUSE CHARGES.

AUTHORITIES WERE LED TO THE MAKESHIFT COMPOUND AFTER THE BOY’S MOTHER REPORTED HIM KIDNAPPED LAST DECEMBER BY WAHHAJ. CHARGES AGAINST WAHHAJ AND THE OTHER FOUR WILL BE DECIDED AFTER THE BOY’S CAUSE OF DEATH IS DETERMINED.
