Hassani Campbell On Friday, the foster parents of missing 5-year-old Hassani Campbell have been arrested on suspicion of murder.
Louis Ross, 38, the foster father of Hassani, and Jennifer Campbell, 33, the boy’s aunt were taken into custody by authorities, according to CBS 5.
Earlier this month, Ross spoke to HLN's Nancy Grace and gave her his version of what occurred on Aug. 10, the day the little boy disappeared. He claimed to have left Hassani standing outside his BMW for two to five minutes, as he went to open the front door of the shoe store where the boy’s aunt works. This was to ask her to open the back door so Hassani, who suffers from cerebral palsy, could enter with ease.
Ross explained, "By the time I got there [to the car], Jennifer is already out of the store, walking toward me, asking, 'Where is Hasanni?' And I say, 'What do you mean, where is Hasanni?' And I look around to the side, and he is no longer there."

Last week, court documents revealed that Ross had sent angry text messages regarding the boy to Jennifer Campbell, threatening to leave Hassani at the train station. Authorities also revealed Ross had failed a polygraph test on Aug. 13.
Authorities would not elaborate further on the arrests.
