    State and local police are investigating the discovery of human remains of a Newtown woman who went missing in 1984.

    Corpus Christi police said a 3-year-old boy died after being struck while trying to run from the family's vehicle to the entrance of a Chuck E. Cheese theme restaurant.

    Sgt. Tony Acevedo said the accident happened Monday night when the child darted out of the vehicle and was hit by a pickup in the restaurant parking lot.

    Acevedo said the victim, whose name was not immediately released, suffered head trauma and was transported to a Corpus Christi hospital, where he died.

    Acevedo said the pickup driver never had a chance to stop and is not expected to be cited in the accident outside the kid-friendly restaurant.
