LAS VEGAS – A woman who moved to Florida from Las Vegas in Las Vegas, a year after her 3-year-old mysteriously disappeared more than 30 years ago is arrested on a warrant charging her with killing the boy, authorities said Monday.

Amy Elizabeth Fleming of Dania, Florida, was transferred to Nevada from the jail in Palm Beach County, after her Jan. 29 arrest on a murder charge in Francillon Pierre died in August 1986.

The child is still not found, but North Las Vegas police Officer Eric Leavitt said researchers recently obtained new testimonies says Fleming killed him. Leavitt declined to specify how the authorities believe that the child has died.

Fleming, who was 28 at the time and is now 60, and her then fiancé Lee Shine told the police that the boy, who earned the nickname yo-Yo, wandered away from them on a Saturday afternoon swap meet.

“The parents are always persons of interest in the case,” Leavitt said. “At this point, there are indications that (Fleming), but the investigation is ongoing.”

Shine, now 62, has not been charged with a crime.

The researchers interviewed Fleming, and the Glow after the boy was reported missing, and Leavitt said they told the police that Pierre’s father, who lived in Haiti, the kidnapped boy.

Leavitt said the father was cleared as a suspect in 1986. The police is now trying to find him in Haiti, in the North Las Vegas police spokesman added.

Fleming and Shine married and moved to South Florida in 1987, Leavitt said, and had no criminal record.

Fleming worked at a marketing company in Boca Raton, where she was arrested by a diffuse fear team under the leadership of U. S. marshals.

The boy was officially considered a missing person, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children featured him in 2011 at an age progressed portrait showing what he might look like at the age of 29.
