STATE OF TEXAS (NEWS CENTER 23) — It's a tragic end for the search of a missing five year old boy in fort worth.
The body of Sida Osman was found yesterday after he went missing Tuesday night.
The boy had been playing outside of his home before his body was found dead in the backyard of a vacant home.
A Neighbor who discovered Osman's body says the boy was almost unrecognizable, as he appeared to have been badly beaten.
"Just why, he's just a little itty bitty kid. He couldn't have done too much to hurt you that you had to take his life. It's not right." -Neighbor
Detectives are not yet calling it murder.
They are waiting for autopsy results.
Officers say they received a call that the boy was missing nearly 3 hours after he disappeared.
