Per reports, the 39-year-old mom reportedly killed her infant baby boy while high on drugs. Police officials also said that the baby went missing when he was just two months old. She was arrested and charged with felony murder and evidence tampering in connection to the death of the baby boy. According to reports, the mother was supposedly high on the drug “angel dust”, also known as PCP, when she smothered her baby boy.
After he died, the mother said she dumped her son into the trash in an effort to avoid trouble with law enforcement officials. Although investigators did a deep search of local landfills, they never found the infant boy’s body. To this day, the little child remains unfound.
Police officials said that the baby’s father took revenge on the mother. Police found the body of 39-year-old LaDonia in the doorway of her capital apartment building in the middle of the night with an apparent stab wound that likely ended her life. Authorities later reported that the infant’s father, Carl, stabbed the woman during a domestic dispute that occurred that same night. Investigators shared a statement online that reported how their “Task Force located and arrested the 44-year-old man. He has been charged with Second Degree Murder while Armed. The detectives’ investigation also revealed that this offense was domestic in nature.
Although the murder charge against the mother was eventually dropped, she still faced the charge of evidence tampering. During the course of the investigation, the mother told police that she accidentally rolled on top of her infant son while she was doped up on the hallucinogenic drug. “He was asleep on my chest, and when I woke up, he wasn’t breathing anymore because he was just that small. He was only two months old. He was a premature baby,” she said, according to reports. After she found her son in that state, she left the apartment to get some air and returned to find he was still not breathing. “I came back in the house and got a blanket and his car seat and wrapped it up and took it outside and just [threw] it in the trash,” she said. “And that’s what happened.”
