Dad’s girlfriend charged in Samuel Olson case

HOUSTON – In a major breakthrough in the case of missing 6-year-old Samuel Olson, police have arrested a woman after the child’s body was found in a motel room in Jasper, Texas. 

Houston Police Assistant Chief Heather Morris said Theresa Balboa, the girlfriend of Samuel Olson’s father, has been charged with tampering with physical evidence after the child’s body was found in a motel room.

She said Balboa may face additional charges in the case.

“Once this case has been fully investigated, investigators will be presenting the case to the district attorney’s office for additional charges, if appropriate,” she said.

Heather Miller confirmed the body of a child found in a Jasper motel room is believed to be Samuel but they must wait for the medical examiner to make a positive identification.

She said homicide detectives plan to question other people about Samuel’s disappearance, including the boy’s father.

Police don’t have a motive in the case and are hoping surveillance video from the motel can help provide some answers.
