A 24-year old mother was found pushing a dead toddler on a swing at Wills Memorial Park in La Plata, Maryland on Friday. Some witnesses claim that the mother had been "playing" with the child since the night before. Deputies arrived at the horrifying scene slightly after 7 a.m. The deputies instantly recognized that the toddler was deceased.
The cause of the boy's death and how long he had been dead is currently unknown. An autopsy is scheduled to be performed on the 3-year old boy's corpse in the near future.
The mother was taken from the scene to a hospital for medical tests to be run on her. It is assumed that the tests are psychological in nature.
The investigation is currently developing.
