Dad’s Girlfriend Kept 5-Year-Old Samuel Olson’s Body in Bathtub for Two Days: Docs

Houston Police Department/Texas EquuSearch

Weeks before telling her boyfriend that his estranged wife took his 5-year-old son, Theresa Balboa allegedly confessed to her roommate that little Samuel Olson was dead—and then put his body in a bathtub for two days, new documents reveal.

Authorities say that on May 10, Balboa called her roommate, Benjamin Rivera, telling him that Dalton Olson’s son had died. Rivera told investigators that he immediately left work and returned home to find the boy laying on the bed, unresponsive and covered in bruises, according to court documents first obtained by ABC13.

Desperate, the duo put Samuel in their apartment’s “bathtub, where he remained for two days” until Rivera was able to buy duct tape and a plastic tote from Walmart, he told authorities. The court documents state that Rivera and Balboa then wrapped the boy’s body in the sheet before placing him inside the tote bag and taking him to a storage unit in Webster, Texas.
