Father Accused Of Murdering Own Child For Revenge Against Ex Makes Jokes In Court

Aramazd Andressian Sr., 35, is facing extradition back to California after being tracked down in Nevada. He has been accused of the absolutely unthinkable crime of murdering his own five-year-old son. As the Daily Mail shares, he made an appearance in a Nevada courtroom for his first hearing - and he attempted to joke with the judge.

The man’s son, Aramazd Andressian Jr., was reported missing two months ago. Andressian Sr. had taken his son to Disneyland, and he failed to return the boy to his estranged wife. He was spotted alone near California's Lake Cachuma later that day, and prosecutors believe he killed the boy sometime after leaving the amusement park.

While the child’s body has never been found, prosecutors believe they have a strong enough case. He was hauled into court over fears that he would attempt to flee the country, as he has altered his appearance since becoming a suspect. While in court, he claimed that he has not been attempting to evade authorities, as he has simply been in Las Vegas for the last several weeks.

“If California wants me they can come and get me,” he said. “I never came here in an intent to flee.”

Justice of the Peace Eric Goodman pointed out that he would likely be transported to California soon due to all the media attention the case has generated, and the man would bizarrely crack a smile and attempt to joke about it.

“They'll probably take me with them!” he said.

He is currently being held on a $10 million bond. The child's distraught mother, Ana Estevez, offered up some thoughts after the hearing.

“No justice in the world will bring my Piqui back,” she said, referring to her son by his nickname. “However, Ara will pay tenfold for all that he has done.”

After the boy wasn’t returned to his mother, Andressian Sr. was discovered passed out in a car. Turns out he had taken some prescription pills and doused himself in gasoline, and police viewed that as a clear sign that he intended to commit suicide. Police have attempted to locate the boy’s body to no avail. Lt. Joe Mendoza notes that the man’s behavior in the wake of his son being missing has been bizarre, to say the least.

“I can only speak for myself. If my son was missing, I would be doing things that (the boy's mother) was doing. Circulating fliers, looking for your son,” he said. “He was not doing that. He was socializing in Vegas.”

Nonetheless, Andressian's attorney, Daniel Nardoni, says that his client “is adamant that he never harmed his son Aramazd and is innocent of the charges.”

The boy’s mother has also expressed her feelings via a statement that has been released by the sheriff’s department.

“My heart is shattered and I will miss my son immensely each and every second of every day for the rest of my life,” the statement read in part.
