I posted about the story yesterday. The little boy's mother was found and arrested for his death. She's being charged with 2 counts of second-degree murder. The cause of death was asphyxiation and ruled a homicide.
On Saturday, May 14th the body of a 4-6 year old boy was found. He's about 3'8 and 45 lbs. There have been no missing child reports on this child. His body was dumped on the side of the road in South Berwick, Maine. The boy was found wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, navy blue tee shirt, and Lightening Mcqueen black sneakers. (Before anyone says something, the picture is computer-generated by the police.)
At 2pm EST (5/17/11) they held a news conference and these are the updates: thinking he may have a military/naval connection. witness caught glimpse of what appeared to be a naval symbol on the license plate of the pick up truck spotted in the area. working on dna and mitochondrial dna searches. working with ncis, interpol, canadian law enforcement, law enforcement throughout the states, working on getting info spread throughout the military overseas (and stateside.) still a suspicious death but haven’t ruled out homicide. haven’t ruled much of anything out yet. pictures of the boy’s lightening mcqueen shoes will be released at some point today.
Call the State Police if you have any information regarding this case 207-657-3030.
