An unidentified 24 year old woman has been found at a park pushing her dead three year old son in a swing.
According to cops the woman was spotted pushing her deceased toddler on the swing at Wills Memorial Park in La Plata, Maryland on Friday morning.
Cops who have yet to necessarily understand how the mother and child came to arrive at the Park now believe that the woman may have been at the playground with her son all night long.
That said cops have yet to tell when the son may have died or what may have necessarily led to his death as no signs of trauma on the boy’s body have been noted.
In a news release on Friday, Charles County Sheriff’s Office said police had arrived at the park after receiving a report of a woman pushing a young child in a swing for an unusually long stretch of time.
When they turned up at the scene at around 6.55am, they found the woman pushing her son back and forth on the play equipment. They immediately realized the boy was dead, according to WUSA 9.
The Sheriff’s Office said the mother and son are thought to have been at the park at 500 St Mary’s Avenue in La Plata, around 30 miles southeast of Washington D.C., since the day before.
MyFoxDC.com has since reported that the mother has now been taken to hospital for a medical evaluation.
Her son’s autopsy will be carried out by the Office of Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore.
