Florida: Two-year-old Jordan Belliveau found dead, Mother Charisse Stinson charged with murder, cover-up

The Florida mother of the two-year-old boy Jordan Belliveau she reported missing has now been arrested and charged with first-degree murder.

Charisse Stinson, 21, had told that she was walking home with her young son Saturday night when a mystery man called “Antwan” picked her up in his car and violently attacked her, knocking her unconscious. When she awoke, the boy was gone and she called 911.

This triggered an Amber Alert for Jordan as authorities released a composite sketch of “Antwan,” as well as surveillance video of a man they described as a “possible witness” who may have spoken to Jordan’s mother.

Yesterday, Jordan’s body was found in a wooded area in Largo and the Amber Alert for the boy was canceled.

At a news conference Tuesday evening, authorities said Stinson had been arrested earlier in the day, but declined to provide further details, citing the ongoing investigation.

Now the true horrific story is known.

Stinson became upset with Jordan and struck the child across the face with the back of her hand. The police report quotes that her words were: “during a moment of frustration” after the child suffered an “unexplained, serious injury” to his right leg.

Police say the back of his head then hit a wall causing severe injuries.

He suffered seizures throughout the night, until he eventually died, authorities said.

Police said Stinson then took the body to the wooded area and left the boy there.

Belliveau’s death has effected not only his family, but the community – a community of strangers who joined the hunt, which lasted over 60 hours in the woods, divers searched ponds and investigators hauled away Dumpsters around the mother’s apartment.

Largo police Lt. Randall Chaney spoke at a press conference adding more details to the case: detectives believe she was acting alone.

“Parts of her story didn’t make sense,” Chaney said. “However, we know from working missing persons cases and working cases like these that sometimes people’s recollections aren’t good or they say things that maybe look inaccurate on the face.”
