The body of a boy, whose remains were discovered at a New Mexico compound, has been buried in his home state of Georgia.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports it took just a few minutes Thursday for men to lower Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj’s body – wrapped in white cloth – into a grave behind a mosque on the city’s southside.
The child’s mother told the newspaper she took comfort in the thought that one day she would meet her son again in paradise.

Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj was reported missing in December. His father, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, had said he was taking the child to a park, but never returned.

Instead, prosecutors say, he brought his son to live on a compound in Taos County, New Mexico.

KOB-TV reports the child’s casket was flown Wednesday from Albuquerque to Atlanta.
