FITCHBURG — Three people were arraigned today in Fitchburg District Court on charges of interfering with a criminal investigation in connection with the disappearance of 5-year-old Jeremiah Oliver, according to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.
Christian Sierra, 21, and Cailey Thibault, 23, both of 156 Summer St., Apt.8, and Ashley M. Cormier, 24, of 95 Heywood St. are charged under the Intimidation of a Witness statute. Sierra and Thibault were arrested Friday night and held over the weekend on $25,000 bail. Cormier was arrested today.

Jeremiah Oliver of 276 Kimball St. was last seen by relatives on Sept. 14. The District Attorney’s Office was notified in December of a potential missing child in Fitchburg. The investigation led to charges against Jeremiah’s mother and her boyfriend.

remains in jail. He is facing two counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (knife) and two counts of assault and battery on a child causing bodily injury. Alberto Sierra and Christian Sierra are brothers.
