CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A little more than one month after police found the body of Jordan Rodriguez, the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner has ruled his death a homicide.

Jordan's remains were discovered on Dec. 19, 2017 in the backyard of a West 80th Street home.

His body was found in bags.

Jordan's jailed mother, 34-year-old Larissa Maria Rodriguez and mother of nine, led police to the abused body of her son Jordan.

She is charged in his murder and is being held on a $1 million bond.
