Long Island Couple’s Missing Child Found Buried in Their Backyard

When Child Protective Services showed up at the Farmingdale home of Robert Rodriguez and Heather Kowalczik to check in on their 6-year-old autistic son, they learned that the couple also had a 3-year-old who could not be accounted for. After a wild goose chase in Orange County, State Police began digging in the couple’s backyard, revealing a shallow grave and a baby’s remains. Police believe it’s the couple’s younger child and are investigating the case as a homicide.
