The fate of a 9-year-old Lodi boy whose family was killed in a car crash last month remains up in the air as he continues to recover from his injuries.
A relative told reporters at the Mexican Consulate in Sacramento on Tuesday that three weeks after the crash claimed the lives of Eden Miranda's parents, three siblings and his mother's unborn baby, talks about where he will end up are ongoing.
Eden, who is currently living with his godmother in Lodi, is wheelchair bound and keeping up with his schoolwork via regular visits from his teacher. His grandmother and other relatives are expected to arrive from Mexico later this month for discussions on where the boy will end up, the Sacramento Bee reported.
A trust fund overseen by the Mexican Consulate and a Stockton attorney has been set up to help defray the costs of what is expected to be a long-term recovery for Eden.
Morales, who had been recovering from injuries at Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento, was arrested Friday and moved to a Lodi hospital. He was then booked Saturday into the San Joaquin County Jail.
