Ara “Piqui” Andressian Jr. Has Been Found

The boy we’ve all come to love, Piqui, that beautiful child we hoped was being hidden away yet safe and sound, has been found deceased. On July 1, 2017, LA County Sheriff’s officials confirmed that little Piqui’s body was found in a tree stump at Vista Point, an area accessed by Highway 154, located next to the campground and recreation area entrance at Lake Cachuma and overlook of Bradbury Dam.

Andressian Sr. planned Piqui’s murder as punishment to Piqui’s mother during their hostile divorce and custody battle. He had been uncooperative and lied to investigators prior to heading to Las Vegas, where he was observed partying it up. Andressian was then arrested just before fleeing the country to a place he could not be extradited. Recently, investigators found evidence on Andressian Sr.’s hard drive indicating he had searched how and where to hide a body.

In his first court appearance, Andressian Sr. appeared to find the loss of his son to be a laughing matter.

But we are all enjoying this image of him in chains

It’s been reported that Andressian Sr. told authorities where they could find Piqui’s body. Investigators have now placed a security hold on this case, which prevents coroner’s officials from discussing it further.

In a small twist, criminal attorney Daniel Nardoni has stated he is no longer providing Andressian Sr.’s legal counsel. Andressian Sr.’s new criminal attorney is Ambrosio Rodriguez.  Rodriguez stated Andressian Sr. would be entering a plea of not guilty at Monday’s arraignment.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to all those who loved and lost Piqui. Here at FMP, we especially send sympathies to Piqui’s mommy Ana Estevez, who’s life has been forever damaged by this unfathomable and unnecessary tragedy.
