RALEIGH, N.C. — Raleigh police said the preliminary examination of the human remains located late last week off Creedmoor Road in Falls Lake indicates they are “consistent with those of a child of Tristan Blue’s age.”

“While the testing needed to scientifically confirm an identification will take additional time to complete, the examination’s findings and other investigative information have led to a conclusion that the remains are his,” said a statement from Raleigh Police Department.

Tristan’s father — 31-year-old Steven Daniel Blue — is charged with killing the boy. He’s in the Wake County Detention Center without bond.
