A woman in Maryland was last week seen pushing her dead 3-year old son on a swing … and reports suggest that she was doing that for more than 24 hours.
According to local reports, police were alerted to go to the Wills Memorial Park in La Plata, Maryland on Friday morning after a concerned caller told them that a woman was pushing a child in the swing ‘for an unusually long period of time.’
On arriving at the park, officers saw the woman pushing the boy on the swing, and immediately noticed that he was dead.
‘We think she was there as of yesterday [Thursday],’ a police spokesman told WJLA. ‘We don’t know if she ever left during the night. It doesn’t appear that she did.’
The woman was immediately taken to hospital for medical evaluation, while the body, which showed no signs of any trauma, was sent to The Office of the Medical Examiner in Baltimore for a complete autopsy.
