Olson was reported missing from Houston on May 27. A few days later, a tip led authorities to a motel room in Jasper where Olson’s body was found.
Shortly after the boy’s body was found, Theresa Balboa – Olson’s father’s girlfriend – was charged with tampering with evidence. This week, Balboa’s roommate Benjamin Rivera was also charged with tampering with evidence.
Rivera is accused of helping Balboa move the boy’s body to a bathtub and later a storage unit, according to court documents.
According to the court documents, Walker allegedly later helped Balboa move a storage container with a "foul odor" from a storage unit to the motel in Jasper.
Balboa is in the Harris County Jail on a total $600,000 bond – $500,000 for the tampering with evidence charged and $100,000 for a previous charge. Rivera bonded out of jail on Thursday.
