Mother Found Pushing Dead Child On Swing
She was discovered by police Friday pushing the child on a swing in a Maryland park.
When officers arrived at Wills Memorial Park around 6:55 a.m., they found the 24-year-old mother pushing the boy in a swing and immediately realized the child was dead, reports WUSA 9.
There appeared to be no signs of trauma to the dead boy. He was taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore where an autopsy will be performed in order to determine the cause of death.
Police believe the mother may have been at the park with her dead child since Thursday, reports The Daily Mail.
Authorities are trying to trace the mother’s recent movements “to find out what led to this moment,” Diane Richardson, a spokeswoman for the Charles County Sheriff’s Office, said.
