LA-area father arrested on suspicion of killing missing son

Authorities arrested South Pasadena father Aramazd Andressian Sr. on the murder charges of his five-year-old son at 1pm Friday in Las Vegas, officials said. They said they had presented evidence in the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office and obtained a murder filing against the suspect.

Suspicion around Aramazd Andressian and his involvement has grown as it was revealed that the father was last seen with his son on the April 21.

Sheriff Jim McDonnell said Andressian Sr. remains in custody in Las Vegas on $10 million bail, and expects him to be extradited to Los Angeles later this week. Andressian tried to change his appearance by shaving his beard and coloring his hair, said Lt. Joe Mendoza. The arrest follows a murder charge issued by the Los Angeles County district attorney. Aramazd Andressian Jr. has been missing for more than two months despite an extensive search by investigators that reached from his hometown to Santa Barbara.

Andressian Sr. claimed, in a statement made by his attorney, that the boy wanted to go to the park after breakfast, before meeting his mother.

He told police he had taken prescription pills that belonged to someone else and did not know what had happened to his son. A pedestrian had found him unconscious next to his auto at a South Pasadena park and called police.

Andressian expected to return to Los Angeles County pending the extradition process. Lacey said she Andressian Sr. will face arraignment at that time. But the department would give no further details on what that evidence was, whether the evidence came from the search at Andressian's or his mother's house, or what Andressian was doing in Nevada. The vehicle was doused in gasoline and there was a rag sticking out of the gas tank.

Almost a week after the boy was reported missing, Andressian released a statement through his attorney.

Aramazd Andressian Sr. was arrested Friday afternoon in Las Vegas on suspicion of Aramazd Andressian Jr.'s murder.

Prosecutors say a verdict has been reached in the trial of a man accused of killing a 2-year-old girl known as Baby Doe after her body washed up on a Boston Harbor island.

"My heart is shattered and I will miss my son immensely each and every second of every day for the rest of my life", she said in the statement. "I am counting the days until I see you honey, and I will never stop looking for you".

Andressian Sr. told detectives he had taken his son there that day, but surveillance video and multiple witness accounts place him alone at the location; investigators said they have no evidence that the child was with him when he went.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact the sheriff's Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500.
