Las Vegas authorities have arrested a 35-year-old man after allegedly finding the body of a young boy in a freezer in his garage.
Online court records confirm that Brandon Toseland was charged Tuesday with two counts of first-degree kidnapping.
Homicide detectives are handling the investigation after the discovery of the boy’s body Tuesday afternoon. Las Vegas Metropolitan Police have yet to release the victim’s name or age.
The Reno Gazette-Journal spoke to Lt. Ray Spencer about the gruesome discovery, which was allegedly made after the victim’s sister handed a note to her elementary school teacher.
The note was written by the girl’s mother, and explained that her boyfriend had been holding her against her will inside their home, the lieutenant told the paper.
Additionally, the mother wrote in the note that she did not know where the girl’s brother was, and believed he was likely deceased, the Gazette-Journal reports.
KLAS reports the teacher reported the distressing note to police at around 8 a.m. Tuesday, and officers dispatched to the neighborhood stopped Toseland’s car at around 10 a.m.
Toseland was taken into custody and police spoke to the victim’s mother, who told them she hadn’t seen her son since Dec. 11, 2021, the paper reports.
She also allegedly accused Toseland of months of physical abuse.
After Toseland’s arrest, police executed a search warrant at the home, and in the garage, found the dead child in a freezer.
Toseland is not the father of the male victim or his sister.
Spencer told the paper the mother had been barred from entering the garage. He also said Toseland will likely face a murder charge when he’s arraigned this morning.
Toseland has yet to enter pleas to the kidnapping charges and information on his lawyer was not available.
Spencer told the paper detectives would be looking into whether the mother was involved in the boy’s death.

Police are investigating after a child was found dead in a freezer in a Las Vegas home.
The child was found Tuesday in a garage freezer, and Brandon Toseland, 35, of Las Vegas, has been identified as a suspect in the death.
Police said on Tuesday morning, an elementary-aged child arrived at school and handed a note from her mother to a teacher. Police said the note stated that the mother was being held against her will and that she didn’t know where her other preschool-aged child was.
After the teacher reported the note, police set up a surveillance operation near the home. Around 10 a.m. Tuesday, police saw a man, later identified as Toseland, and a woman leave the home, after which police pulled them over.
The woman told police she had not seen her preschool-aged son since Dec. 11. She also said her boyfriend, Toseland, had abused her and did not allow her to leave the house or go into certain areas of the home, according to police.
Police searched the home and found the remains of the child on Tuesday afternoon. Police believe the child had been in the freezer since early December.
Toseland, who is not the father of either of the woman’s children, was initially detained on two kidnapping charges and will now also face an open murder charge, police said.
The elementary-aged child has been placed with family.
