Sacramento Sheriff Detectives reported Saturday that they believe the body found in Glenn County is that of missing 6-year-old Jadianna Larsen of Sacramento.

Larsen was initially reported missing Thursday around 11:00 a.m. from her home in Sacramento.

Detectives suspect the boyfriend of Larsen's mother, 25-year-old Juan Rivera, to be responsible for her death. Detectives said they have enough evidence to arrest Rivera for the murder, who was booked in to Sacramento County jail Saturday morning.

Rivera said initially that he suffered a medical emergency and lost consciousness and when he woke up Larsen was missing.

Officials are still conducting confirmatory testing at the Sacramento County Crime Lab.
