A somber start to today’s P.M. Buzz: Montgomery County police have found human remains they believe are those of 11-year-old William McQuain, who was last seen about two weeks ago. The discovery comes six days after the body of William’s mother was found slain in their Germantown home; Jane McQuain’s estranged husband, Curtis Lopez, has been charged in her killing and is the “prime suspect” in William’s death, police say.
