Update: The boy has been identified as Camden Pierce Hughes, age 6. His mother Julie Mccrory of Irving, Texas, is in Massachusetts State Police custody in Concord. She has confessed to killing her son, sources tell WBZ.
Update: More details have come in. This boy’s body, pictured on the left was left on Dennett Road near Company Woods Road early Saturday morning, possibly as early as 7:30AM, in South Berwick, Maine.
A woman who lives on the road, saw a blanket near a driveway while taking a walk at 5:00 PM. She opened the blanket and found the boy. (That had to have been heart-wrenching.)
There is also a report that police are looking for a navy blue-colored Toyota Tacoma truck. It has an extended cab with a cover. It was seen on Dennett Road around 7:30 AM. This is a great lead, as this is a rural road and there’s not more that 1-2 cars that go down that road in an hour. A witness said that is was a white license plate, but didn’t know the state. Maine and Massachusetts have white license plates, but so does California, and there may be another state, but without a license plate number, it is going to be difficult to find. I would suggest if you happen to see one parked at a restaurant off a highway in Maine or surrounding areas, that might be a good lead.
And if you have a neighbor that has that kind of truck and kids and you don’t see one of the kids anymore, that might be something to pass to the police.
It has to be assumed at this point that this child was probably killed by or died with, his parents, as no one has reported a child missing. Amber Alert’s help the police know immediately who is missing and nothing has come in from anywhere. So, it is a safe assumption that his guardian(s) were with him when he died, and that is who everyone should be looking for.
Original story: Police are trying to identify the body of a boy who was found on Saturday at the end of a dirt driveway in South Berwick, Maine. Maine state police held a news conference on Monday asking the public for help to identify the boy, who is believed to be between 4-6 years old. There has been no reports of a missing child in Maine, New Hampshire or Massachusetts. Investigators believe the body was placed at the scene Saturday morning, and that the boy had died a couple of hours earlier
“We are waiting for the public to give us some clue as to where to go from here,” said Col. Robert Williams.
“Somebody has got to miss this child,” said Lieut. Brian McDonough. “We have not gotten any significant leads.”
The boy was 3’8″, 45 pounds and had short wavy dark blond hair and blue eyes. He was wearing a gray camouflage hooded sweatshirt, tan pants and “Lightning McQueen” black sneakers.
