CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Cleveland Police released body camera video from a visit to the home of Larissa Rodriguez to question her about her then missing 5-year-old son Dec. 18, 2017.

Authorities told Rodriguez they got a concerning tip about her son Jordan and they were there to do a welfare check. Before entering the home, police walked to the backyard of the house. 

"What was the call maybe about?" she said. "I mean, I don't know what the concern is." 

Jordan's remains were discovered by police Dec. 19, 2017 -- one day after they questioned Rodriguez -- in the backyard of a West 80th Street home.

Cleveland police received a call from Pakistan on Dec. 18, 2017 from a man named Scott Rodriguez regarding a report of a missing 5-year-old boy. 

He told police that the child was found unresponsive and was buried in the backyard two months ago.

During the police questioning with the 34-year-old mother, she explained Jordan was visiting his father out of the state. 

"He's with his dad. He's visiting for the holiday, he's not here with us right now. [His dad] is in Texas," she said. "I don't have his number."

A little more than one month after police found the body of Jordan, the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner has ruled his death a homicide.

His body was found in bags. 

Jordan's jailed mother, who is a mother to nine, led police to the abused body of her son Jordan.

She is charged in his murder and is being held on a $1 million bond.
