The Richardson Police announced that they discovered the remains of a child in a tunnel beneath a road, expressing apprehension that it was “most likely” of Sherin. They, however, did not confirm the identity.

Sherin’s body was found about half a mile from the house of her adoptive parents, Wesley and Sini Mathews.As part of their search operation, officers blocked off an area near Spring Valley and Bowser roads, east of Central Expressway.

The child’s foster father, Wesley Mathews, 37, was arrested on a charge of abandoning or endangering a child. A day later, he was released from custody after posting $ 250,000 bond.

As per an arrest-warrant affidavit, Mathews said to be from Kerala, told police that he sent Sherin outside and told her to stand next to a large tree at around 3 AM October 7.
