Details of Disappearance

Nylo was last seen in Cincinnati, Ohio on December 4, 2020. He has never been heard from again and his mother, Nyteisha Lattimore, disappeared with him. They lived on Melrose Avenue in the Walnut Hills area.

At 3:30 a.m. December 12, Nyteisha's body was found inside a body bag near the Purple People Bridge on the Ohio River; she'd been stabbed to death. With her body was a Paw Patrol blanket with Nylo's blood on it. The next day, Nylo's stroller was also found in the river, near where his mother had been located.

Neighbors reported hearing the sounds of a struggle coming from Nylo and Nyteisha's apartment on December 5. Investigators believe Nyteisha was murdered that day by her boyfriend, Desean Brown. Photos of both Nyteisha and Brown are posted with this case summary. Authorities believe Brown threw Nylo in the Ohio River, alive, on December 6, five days before he dumped Nyteisha's body.

A few days after Nyteisha's body was found, Brown was charged with murder, felonious assault, gross abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence in Nyteisha's case. He had purchased a body bag from eBay, and on December 11 he took an Uber ride with the bag to the Ohio River, telling the driver that he was moving out and the bag contained his clothes.

Desean is awaiting trial in Nyteisha's case. If convicted, he could face the death penalty. He has not been charged in connection with Nylo's presumed death.

Nylo's body has not been located, but foul play is suspected in his case due to the circumstances involved.
