Mom arrested in Florida in death of son who vanished in 1986

LAS VEGAS — Authorities say the mother of a 3-year-old who disappeared more than 30 years ago in the Las Vegas area has been arrested in Florida on a warrant charging her with killing the boy.

Police in North Las Vegas said Monday that 60-year-old Amy Elizabeth Fleming was being transferred from Palm Beach, Florida, to Nevada to face a murder charge in Francillon Pierre’s death in 1986.

The child’s body hasn’t been found, but police say they recently obtained new witness accounts implicating Fleming in his death.

Fleming and her fiancee, Lee Luster, had told police that the boy wandered away at a Saturday afternoon swap meet.

North Las Vegas police Officer Eric Leavitt says the couple married and moved to Boca Raton the following year.
