A woman and her girlfriend have been arrested after authorities identified a toddler whose body washed up on a Texas beach.

Galveston police chief Vernon Hale said that police identified the child, known as “Little Jacob,” after investigators took the unusual step of releasing a digitally-altered photograph of the child from the day he was found.

“On January 30, 2018, we released that edited crime scene photo of Little Jacob. We again received hundreds of tips and continued to follow up on them,” Hale said. “Two of those tips, in conjunction with one another, led us to a possible identity of a baby named Jayden in Houston, Texas.”
