    NEW YORK - The father of Siraj Ibn Wahhaj says his son must have a mental disorder.

    Siraj Ibn Wahhaj is accused of taking his 11 children, including a Georgia boy, to a New Mexico compound and training them for school shootings.

    "My son can be a little extreme, when I say extreme, not radical, killing people stuff like that, this is a little bit sometimes high strung,” Imam Siraj Wahhaj said.

    The remains of a young boy was found at the compound. The grandfather of missing Abdul-ghani Wahhaj said the remains found at the property is that of the child.

    The young boy's mother told Channel 2's Mark Winne that she is devastated about the case.

    “My life took away from me. My life took away from me,” Hakima Ramzi said.
