Police search Calif. dump for bodies of 2 boys

Detectives discovered the stabbed body of the 31-year-old mother Friday

Associated Press

ORANGE, Calif. — Cadaver-sniffing dogs and homicide detectives are searching a Southern California trash dump for the bodies of two missing boys believed to have been killed by their father.

Nothing turned up during earlier searches of the Brea landfill.

Orange police Sgt. Dan Adams says Monday's search will continue throughout the day.

Arlet Hernandez Contreras and her 2-year-old and 4-month-old sons disappeared last month.

Detectives discovered the stabbed body of the 31-year-old mother Friday at the Los Angeles County coroner's office, where it had been unidentified since it was found April 25 under a tarp in an industrial area.

The woman's 31-year-old boyfriend, Shazer Fernando Limas, was arrested after a Thursday evening freeway chase, and he was booked for investigation of killing Contreras and their sons.
