From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

It is the heartbreaking result that everybody was hoping against. A missing 4-year-old boy is found dead, just feet away from his home in Baton Rouge. What happened? How was he missed earlier? We'll bring you the latest as the family and investigators look for answers. Plus we'll give you a look ahead to a big meeting about Redemptorist. With the Junior  and Senior High now set to close at the end of the year, could a grass roots effort save it? And we'll continue our 9Gifts of Christmas giveaway. We'll see you for 9NTM, The Big Extra Hour, and The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
