Quinton Simon, a 20 month old toddler, was reported missing on October 5, 2022. As I live very close to where he went missing and, my best friend’s house in high school was actually right down the street from his house, this caught my interest.

After much questioning of the mother, Leilani Simon, it came to light that Quinton’s body had been thrown into a dumpster and was most likely at a local landfill in Savannah, Georgia. The FBI painstakingly sorted through the garbage for several weeks before finally finding remains that were confirmed to be human.

A DNA test was then performed to confirm the identity is that of little Quinton Simon.

His mother, Leilani, has been arrested in connection with his disappearance and murder.

As of now, there has been no release of extensive details in the perpetration of this crime, nor has there been a cause of death released. I hope to update this post soon with more information.


Rest in Peace with the angels sweet boy.
