Mother Of The Mystery Boy, Whose Body Was Found On A Remote Road, Confesses: 'I Killed My Son!'

Thu, May 19, 2011 11:43am EST by 3 Comments

The mother has been charged with second degree murder and being a fugitive from justice after allegedly admitting to dropping her 6-year-old son’s body on the side of a deserted dirt road in Maine.

The woman, Julianne McCrery, 42, reportedly told a policewoman, “I killed my son. I want to kill myself,” after a telephone tip led authorities to find her at a highway rest stop in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, where she was in her blue Toyota Tacoma pick-up truck reading the Bible.

Julianne, from Irving, Texas, is reportedly telling investigators that she accidentally gave her 6-year-old son, Camden Pierce Hughes, too much cough syrup, leading her to leave his body on a road in South Berwick, Maine, near the state line of New Hampshire.

She has been taken to a hospital for medical evaulation, where she will be questioned further by authorities. She will be arraigned today, May 19, after being charged with second degree murder and being a fugitive from justice.

Camden’s autopsy shows that the cause of death was suffocation and the manner of death was homicide, which is still under investigation.

“Julie’s a good person,” says a friend, Christian von Atzigen.”If you would ever ask me if she would harm a hair on that precious little boy’s head, I would say never. She loves that boy.”

Julianne was a former school bus driver and cement mixer, who was also the author of the book Goodnight, Sleep Tight! But relatives tell the Boston Globe that she was at times suicidal and suffered from a mental illness, as well as struggled with substance abuse.

Her ex-boyfriend, Robert Miller, 49, who was like a father to Camden tells local station WCVB, “She loved him dearly. He was a very nice little boy. He was real smart.”

Julianne has another son, 23-years-old, who is a chef for the U.S. Navy stationed in USS Oak Hill in Norfolk, Virginia. (This explains the military insignia on her blue pick-up truck).

Her mother LuRae McCrery says everything seemed to be normal with her daughter, whose “whole life was raising her son.”

“We’ve been talking every day,” she tells the Boston Globe. “I have no idea why she went to Maine. I don’t think she knew anyone in that part of the country. I don’t have a clue.”

Julianne has been arrested prior to this horrible incident. She was taken into police custody in 2003 and 2004 at least four times and convicted on charges of prostitution and drugs – before Camden was born.

Such a sad, sad situation.

It could only happen in Texas that some sick in the head suppose to be mother kills her kid (s).
What this woman did is beyond evil. She drove with her kid all the way from Dalas Texas to some isolated dirt road in Main just to kill her son and then dumb his body out on the road like a bag of trash and then high tail it back to Texas.
She doesn’t deserve to be convicted of 2nd degree murder, but 1st degree capital murder instead. Then to make matters worse, she lied to the school everyday when they called her to ask why he wasn’t in school. She told them he was sick when infact he was dead. She deserves to BURN in Hell for what she done. I don’t feel sorry for her at all.
