ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A public memorial service is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon for Tyrus Toribio, the 3-year-old boy found buried at an Albuquerque park nearly two weeks ago.
The public is invited to the memorial at 2 p.m. at Calvary Chapel, 4001 Osuna Rd. NE, in Albuquerque.
The boy, who has relatives on Zia Pueblo, will be buried there following a two-day private ceremony.
His mother, Tiffany Toribio, 23, is accused of killing the boy. According to police documents, she confessed to smothering him and burying his body in the sand at Alvarado Park.
