California authorities said Tuesday they had found the body of a 4-year-old boy in a canal, about 30 miles downstream from where a vehicle belonging to the man believed to have kidnapped the boy was found two weeks ago. Police say Juliani Cardenas was taken from his home on Jan. 18th in Patterson, in central California, by his mother’s ex-boyfriend, Jose Rodriguez. Rodriguez’s car was pulled from the bottom of the canal Friday, with no signs of either Rodriguez or the boy. Police said they expect to find Rodriguez’s body in the canal as well, since there was no evidence he fled after the car went into the water. Despite that, a homicide arrest warrant has been issued for him.
