The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed for FOX6 News on Monday, Oct. 25 that based on the condition of Major Harris' body, it is believed the 3-year-old child "was killed at or around the same time as his mother."

Mallery Meunsenberger's body was found near 37th and Clarke in Milwaukee on Oct. 14. A week later, on Oct. 21, a tip led investigators to Major's body near 35th and Rohr. Authorities say the child was shot in the head – and DNA evidence was used to positively identify the boy's body.
