Terry went missing Saturday night about 7:30 p.m. after his mother, Shawna Smith, reportedly went out for the evening and left Terry's older brother in charge of him. The boy's brother was allegedly the last person to see him. Their mother didn't know Terry was missing until Sunday morning.
Terry's remains were found in a shallow hole near a tree in a weedy area. Menifee is about 70 miles southeast of Los Angeles. Terry was said to be a nice kid who never did anything wrong.
Menifee Police Chief John Hill did confirm that the tragic death of the Menifee autistic boy was connected to "a domestic issue."
Other family members have been taken in for questioning over the Terry's murder.
