Why is Leilani Simon a Suspect?

The woman was living with her boyfriend, Quinton, and his 3-year-old brother, along with her parents. The police informed that her parents currently have custody of the two kids.

Leilani called 911 on that day and suggested that someone might have taken him before 9 am when they found the door open. Meanwhile, Quinton’s babysitter informed the police about the weird message they received, which peaked the police’s interest.

“I got a text this morning saying they would not be here — would not be babysitting them at 5:29 [a.m.]. Which was kind of odd because I have them even when she doesn’t work”, the babysitter informed the police.

When police asked Leilani’s mother about her daughter, she said, “She hasn’t always done the right thing. Her mother also said, “Sometimes she does really great, sometimes she doesn’t … I don’t know if I can trust her — I don’t.”

Besides this, in early September, Leilani’s mother tried to chuck Leilani and her boyfriend from her home.

Why is Leilani not arrested yet?

The legal analyst, Philip Holloway gave his two cents about the whole business. He said that the body of the child not being found might be one of the reasons to hold off the arrest.

“They need to find the remains if they can because even though it’s not required to have a body to prosecute a murder under Georgia law, it’s always better if they can identify a cause and manner of death”, he informed.
