CHESTERFIELD, SOUTH CAROLINA - MAY 31, 2018
A 3-year-old baby found dead in a diaper box in Chesterfield (South Carolina).
Two days before, child’s mother had reported a kidnapping. Now she is in custody.
According to Chesterfield County Sheriff Jay Brooks, the child’s body was found in a field about 910 meters behind parent's home in Chesterfield in the state’s north. Also, he added the baby's mother reported that someone attacked her and took the child from her arms when she checked the mail.
The police don’t think that was a kidnapping.
The incident was under investigation. Presumably, the mother wanted to get rid of her child. Neighbors and witnesses often complained about the screams, coming from the house.
