HOUSTON – As new details about the body of a child found at a Jasper motel believed to be that of 5-year-old Samuel Olson come to light, his father Dalton, through his attorney Samuel Veenstra, denies being involved.

”He had nothing to do with the death of his son,” said Veenstra. “(The) family is in mourning, shocked and in disbelief.”

He said the family is seeking answers as to what happened and why.

Olson’s attorney also saying right now”... they’re wanting answers as to what happened and why.”

Dalton’s girlfriend, 29-year-old Theresa Balboa has been charged with tampering with evidence in the case.

Court documents reveal that the child was dead two weeks before his father reported him missing to law enforcement. The child’s body was at an apartment that Balboa shared with a roommate in Webster for days before she allegedly took the body to a storage facility and later to a motel in Jasper, per court documents.
