Back in September Ruthey admitted herself into the Logan Regional Hospital Emergency Department for several medical issues.
During Rutchey’s treatment suspicion was raised about the welfare of her 2-year-old son, Eli.
Police later found Eli’s body inside the Ruthey’s River Heights home.
An extensive investigation into the circumstances of the case was conducted, including an autopsy performed on the body at the Utah State Medical Examiner's Office. Based on the information gathered by investigators, sufficient evidence has been obtained to arrest Heidi Marie Rutchey.
