Woman Found Pushing Her Dead Son’s Body at a Playground

Sad, and disturbing

The Washington Post is reporting a sad story out of Maryland today, involving a mother pushing her dead son in a swing at Willis Memorial Park in La Plata, Maryland.

According to the report, the child had been dead for several hours, but his body showed no signs of trauma. Diane Richardson, a spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office noted that mothers that had been in the park the day before saw the mother in question, and her now deceased son, but none of them could confirm whether or not he was alive, or whether or not they had left the park at nightfall.

There’s a possibility she’d been pushing her son’s body in a swing for an entire day. Authorities have begun an official investigation.
