Man accused of murdering 5-year-old son arrested in Las Vegas

Los Angeles County sheriff's officials say Aramazd Andressian Sr. was arrested in Las Vegas where he's being held in lieu of $10 million bail in connection with the murder of 5-year-old Aramazd Andressian Jr. who was last seen April 21

Los Angeles County law enforcement officials told reporters Monday that prior to his arrest last week, 35-year-old Aramazd Andressian Sr. had changed his appearance and had been socializing in Las Vegas, conduct characterized as inconsistent with that of a grieving parent.

"After reviewing all of the evidence in this case, Homicide Investigators presented the facts to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office and obtained a murder filling against the suspect", the Sheriff's Department said in a press release.

The last confirmed sighting of the boy was with his father at 1 a.m. April 21 as they left Disneyland. Andressian's attorney said he was surprised by the arrest on a murder charge and said he's advised his client to waive extradition at Tuesday's hearing. The LA Times reports that Aramazd Andressian Senior was taken into custody in Las Vegas, where he is being held on $10 million bail until he is moved to LA County. He told investigators he arrived at the park with his son and waited for the golf course to open, and admitted ingesting prescription medication that was not prescribed to him, Mendoza said previously.

LA County investigators, along with assistance from the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office, traveled to Cachuma Lake twice in late April in search for the 5-year-old boy.

The boy's body has never been found.

Aramazd Andressian Sr.was found unresponsive in Arroyo Park early morning on April 22, a short distance from his vehicle. 17, 2017, file photo, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Homicide Bureau Capt. Christopher Bergner, center, stands by a poster of Aramazd Andressian Jr., a 5-year-old boy who has been missing for several weeks from South Pasadena, Calif., at a news conference outside the Hall of Justice in Los Angeles.

Surveillance footage showed Andressian at the lake, police said, but they could not verify if the boy had been there. Estevez said, speaking directly to her son. His gray 2004 BMW sedan was found nearby with its interior and exterior doused with gasoline. A news conference is scheduled for Monday.

When he failed to meet with ex-wife Ana Estevez at their pre-arranged meeting place on April 22, the authorities were notified by the anxious mother. Andressian Sr was arrested in Las Vegas, NY on June 23, 2017.

"My son's disappearance is my worst nightmare", she said. "My heart is shattered and I will miss my son immensely each and every second of every day for the rest of my life". "Piqui was everything great in my life and I can not imagine the emptiness and the void that I will bear until we are together again one day", the statement said.

The case remains under investigation, and anyone with information is urged to call the sheriff's Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500, or leave an anonymous tip through Crime Stoppers by dialing 800-222-8477.
