(Newser) – Investigators in Massachusetts think they've found the body of a child missing for more than six months. Five-year-old Jeremiah Oliver disappeared in September, and investigators found a child's body along the side of a highway outside of Boston yesterday. Jeremiah's mom and her boyfriend are in jail in connection with the boy's disappearance, a case the Boston Globe calls "one of the worst lapses in the history of the state's child-protection agency."
