Baby Achilles Lambert was found in Queretaro, Mexico, where his father, 38-year-old Patrick Lambert abandoned him, according to the Houston Police Department. Patrick Lambert was arrested by Mexican authorities and the FBI around 5:30pm Friday at a separate location in Mexico; authorities did not specify where.
The manhunt for the two started Monday after the child's mother, 27-year-old Anastacia Oaikhena-Lambert, was found fatally stabbed and stuffed in a refrigerator. Maintenance workers at the Braeswood Oaks apartments discovered her body after residents reported a strong, foul odor coming from the air conditioning vents. Police suspect she'd already been in the fridge for about a week.
Lambert, 38, and the baby were no where to be found, prompting authorities to issue the Amber Alert.
Both the baby and father will be returned to Houston at a later date. It's not yet clear what charges Lambert will face.
"It's a relief. I just hope they get the baby to the Mom's family so they can take care of him," said neighbor Nicole Barnes who first reported a foul odor on Monday.
Police were familiar with the family. Houston police records show Anastacia called the police on September 2 to report being threatened with a knife. Another police call was made a day later, but no arrests were made either time.
