A twist in the Aveione Lewis murder investigation.

Police are looking at a possible second suspect in the toddler's death.

That's according to a search warrant filed in circuit court.

Investigators want to get into Brandon Lockett's e-mail account.

Lockett was Aveion Lewis' stepfather and has been charged in connection with this case.

Brandon Lockett talked to News7 the day after he claimed three men kidnapped Aveion.

In this search warrant, police say Lockett used his computer and email account before, on and after January 14th when the two-year-old was reported missing.

Investigators want access to his YAHOO account because Lockett refers to this mystery person and cell phone number getting Aveion's dead body for disposal.

Last Wednesday, searchers found the body of a child in a Roanoke County landfill.

The child's body still has not been officially identified.

A search warrant from last week shows the baby's body was found wrapped in plastic and tape.

In previous searches police seized computers, cell phones, plastic bags and duct tape.

While police aren't identifying the baby at this point, according to the search warrant the body found was that of an African-American baby.
