LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A candlelight vigil and walk will be held Wednesday at 6:30 pm in the neighborhood near Lamb and Carey after a 4-year-old child’s remains were found in the freezer on Tuesday.
The boy has been identified as Mason Dominguez and was found deceased in Brandon Toseland’s home.
Toseland, 35, was arrested Tuesday after police discovered the child’s body in a freezer in a garage at a home on Saddle Brook Park Drive in a northeast Las Vegas neighborhood.
Dominguez is one of Toseland’s girlfriend’s children. The woman told Metro police she had not seen the child since Dec. 11, 2021, and feared he might be dead.
Police were alerted to the home after being contacted by Clark County School District Police when an elementary school child brought a note to her teacher that her mother was being held against her will and did not know what happened to her younger child.
When police searched the home, the child’s body was found in the freezer.
On Wednesday evening neighbors came together to honor Mason’s life by laying out candles and flowers near his home.
Investigators tell the 8 News Now I-Team that they will not know the young boy’s official cause of death until an autopsy is conducted in the new few days.
Toseland is currently facing kidnapping charges and is expected back in court on Monday, February 28.
