Parents of five-year-old charged with murder

Police release father's 911 call reporting son missing

While the search for missing 5-year-old Andrew "AJ" Freund continues, Crystal Lake Police have released audio from a 911 call when he was reported missing.

Jim Black, the Chief of the Crystal Lake Police Department, said in a press conference Wednesday afternoon that both AJ's parents, JoAnn Cunningham and Andrew Freund Sr., have been charged in connection with the boy's death.

In the taped call, Andrew Freund Sr. can be heard calmly telling the dispatcher Thursday morning, "We have a missing child", the Chicago Sun Times reports.

Crystal Lake Police were called to the home of a missing IL boy 17 times in the last five years-once noting the smell of feces in the boys' bedroom was "overwhelming", according to new records released by police. Photos and video showed officers leaving the couple's home on Wednesday with a shovel, mattress, brown paper bags and plastic storage tub. Both will be taken to the McHenry County Jail, where they will await a bond hearing.

His cause of death is not clear, Black said. Because the charges resulting from this investigation are based largely on evidence recovered, we will not be providing any further details in an effort to protect the integrity of the criminal prosecution.

To AJ's family, it is our hope that you may have some solace in knowing that AJ is no longer suffering and his killers have been brought to justice.

Police have scheduled a news conference for 1 p.m.

The harrowing 911 call of a father reporting his five-year-old son missing has been released by police in IL.

Meanwhile, investigators said earlier this week that Cunningham has been "uncooperative with police" when they interviewed her.

Twice a year ago, DCFS caseworkers returned to Andrew's home to investigate separate allegations of neglect, thought both were determined to be unfounded.

The parents then "provided information that ultimately led to the recovery" of the boy. The agency has had contact with the family on and off until late a year ago.

Authorities were seen searching a rural area off Dean Street and 176th Street in Woodstock. The last time he says he saw his son was when he went to bed Wednesday night. When WGN questioned Attorney George Killis as to why he was at the police station, he had no comment. Parker was taken into custody by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services on Thursday after Andrew was reported missing by his parents.

One report described seeing the home littered with dog feces and urine, and a children's bedroom where "the smell of feces was overwhelming".

Carolina Bermudez, who lives near the property in Woodstock, said a police officer in an unmarked auto knocked on her door at around 6 a.m. Wednesday, and her husband answered.

Sonar teams that searched Crystal Lake found nothing, and the canine teams "only picked up Andrew's "scent" within the residence, indicating that Andrew had not walked away on foot", the police said.

In March and December of 2018, the department was called to AJ's home after reports of abuse and neglect, which were ultimately chose to be unfounded, a department spokesperson said last week.
