Those family members went into Ortiz's home and discovered the boy's body in a bag under the kitchen table, prosecutors said.

Police said Ortiz phoned his sister-in-law and confessed 'to killing the baby'.

Authorities have said Ortiz stabbed the boy after becoming frustrated because he was keeping him awake.

Ortiz has been charged with murder in the "brutal slaying and near decapitation", of Mateo Aguayo, who was found fatally stabbed just before 2 p.m. Wednesday in an apartment in the 2700 block of South Avers Avenue, according to Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. "The defendant then held his son down with one hand and used the knife in the other hand to saw across the child's throat multiple times, killing the 2-year-old".

He ultimately confessed to his sister, who allegedly called relatives who lived on the first floor of the building. Brendan Deenihan said in a press conference on Thursday that after he realized what he did, Ortiz tried to kill himself by cutting his wrist.

The Medical Examiner's Office ultimately found that Aguayo died of an incised wound of the neck and ruled his death a homicide.

Chicago Police Sept. Eddie Johnson told the Chicago Sun Times that the boy had been slashed across the throat and the wound was so deep that the child was almost decapitated.

The little boy was running around his family's apartment in Chicago's Little Village neighborhood. When they found Aguayo's body they called 911.

The 37-year-old has allegedly admitted to his child's murder whilst he was in custody. "He was just an innocent kid whose trust and safety was betrayed by the one man he should never have to question". He was arrested almost 50 miles away, in Kankakee County, following a traffic stop by state police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

TODDLER KILLED: Mateo Garcia Aguayo was only 2-years-old.

Afterwards, Ortiz allegedly grabbed a garbage bag full of clothes and placed his son's body in it.

Ortiz has no prior arrests, Deenihan said.

"These are the kinds of tragedies that keep police officers working without sleep", Chicago Police Supt.

At Thursday's press conference, Deenihan said it will take time for Mateo's relatives as well as his detectives - many of whom have small children around Mateo's age - to recover from Wednesday night's trauma.

Police said six other children live at the home but they were not there when Aguayo was killed. "He told me that he couldn't talk and that he was shaking a lot so he wanted to see if we could call the police or something", said Rafael Abrego, a community activist.
