Mother Who Reported 6-Year-Old Son Missing Now Accused of Murder, Abuse of Corpse

James Robert Hutchinson, 6

When dad isn’t around, things always go very badly.

The question is only: how badly?

Do the kids end up as psychiatric cases or drug addicts, or does she just go ahead and murder them and dump them in the river?

It depends on a lot of different factors, and sometimes seems arbitrary.

An Ohio mother is facing a murder charge after allegedly killing her 6-year-old son and throwing his body into the Ohio River.

On Sunday, Brittany Gosney, 29, of Middletown, reported her son James Robert Hutchinson missing, the Middletown Division of Police says in a statement.

In an alert issued on Sunday, Middletown police said in a Twitter post, “We have a missing 6-year-old named James. He is was last seen in the area of Crawford St. He is a white male, 3′ tall, 42 lbs. He has dark blond/reddish hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a red shirt with blue and red Batman pajama pants. If you see him, call 911.”

Police, volunteers and organized search teams immediately began looking for the boy.

Three hours later, Middletown police updated the post saying, “We are no longer looking in the Crawford Street area. New information has led us outside the city limits. Thank you for your assistance.”

Police stopped looking in the Crawford Street area because upon further questioning, Gosney and her boyfriend, James Hamilton, 42, told investigators that the boy was killed in Preble County a few days before he was reported missing, Middletown Police say in the statement.

Court documents obtained by WLWT say Gosney admitted to bringing her 6-year-old son to Rush Run Park in Preble County.

She allegedly told investigators she was going to leave him at the park.

When he tried to get back into the car, she allegedly drove off, “dragging him for a distance at a high rate of speed,” the documents state, according to the outlet.

When she returned 30 to 40 minutes later, she found him in the middle of the road with a head injury, the documents state.

When she found the boy lying in the road, she told authorities she thought he was dead, according to the documents.

Gosney allegedly said she put her son in her car and drove him to a home on Crawford Lane where she placed him in the upstairs bedroom, the documents state, WLWT reports.

The next day, she told police she drove to the Ohio River and dumped his body in the water, the documents state.

Gosney was arrested Sunday and is charged with murder, abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence.

Hamilton was also arrested Sunday and charged with abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence.

Any man who gets involved with a single mother is the scum of the earth. This man looks like he’s possessed by demons.

If women knew that single motherhood was the end of their sexual escapades, then we would no longer have single mothers. Men who date or marry single mothers are demonstrably hurting society.
