    OR - London McCabe, 6, autistic, thrown off Yaquina Bay Bridge, 3 Nov 2014

    http://koin.com/2014/11/03/police-bo...m-yaquina-bay/

    Police say they have recovered the body of a boy, 6, whose mother threw him off of the Yaquina Bay Bridge. Newport Police Chief Mark J. Miranda identified the child as London G. McCabe.

    Jillian Meredith McCabe, a 34-year-old Seal Rock, Ore. resident, has been arrested and charged with aggravated murder, murder and first-degree manslaughter.

    She was lodged into the Lincoln County Jail, Miranda said. Under Oregon law, any person charged with aggravated murder is denied bail until a hearing before a judge. A spokesperson said McCabe will be arraigned via video at 1:15 p.m. Tuesday.

    Authorities said 34-year-old Jillian McCabe called 911 at 6:25 p.m. to report what she did. She told police that she heard voices in her head telling her to throw the boy off the bridge.

    The drop from the highest point on the bridge deck to the water below is 133 feet. The Coast Guard, Newport police and fire and the Lincoln County sheriff's office searched for a victim in the water around the bridge. Shortly after 10 p.m. the boy's body was located near the Embarcadero Resort to the east of the bridge.

    NBC News reports that a woman with that name created an online donation site for a son London, diagnosed with autism. The Monday booking mug of McCabe matched the woman on the website, who said she lived in Hood River. Her writings and a blog by her once estranged husband describe how he suffered from multiple sclerosis and has an unspecified mass in his brain, NBC reported.

    RIP London. I will refrain from saying what I am thinking about Jillian. How heart breaking.

    Coast Guard spokesman Jonathan Klingenberg said London's body was recovered early Tuesday. He said a good Samaritan had called in after spotting a body from a restaurant and lounge at the Yaquina Bay Bridge, prompting the Coast Guard's 25-foot vessel and fire department to zero in on the location. "The fire department got there first and recovered the body," he told NBC News. "It's absolutely a tragedy."

    Bless his heart. I don't want to think about the terror he felt as he was being thrown off that bridge. What horror!

    Out of E.A. Robinson's original context a bit, but....

    We tell you, tapping on our brows,
    The story as it should be,
    As if the story of a house
    Were told, or ever could be.
    We'll have no kindly veil between
    Her visions and those we have seen--
    As if we guessed what hers have been,
    Or what they are or would be.

    Angry

    checked out the father's blog. He has been suffering MS. From what I read, he and the mother were separated, with London living with him and his parents. He was, at least since the illness forced him to stop working, the primary caregiver. The mother, Jillian had been living somewhere else until just recently when she also moved into HIS parent's home.
    This is just what I picked up from the blog, it may or may not be true.

    So, I mean, this isn't a case of an overwhelmed parent, since until recently, she was living apart from both her ill husband, and her autistic son.

    I hope she gets the maximum sentence allowed. What she did was pure evil.

    PD: Mom throws 6-year-old son off Oregon bridge - ABC15 Arizona

    ----

    I cannot post what I think of this poor excuse of a mother - for I will be banned for life.

    The image of a smiling, happy London will be forever imprinted on my heart. I am holding onto that with all I have, in a desperate attempt to block out what I know his last moments on this earth must have been.

    If only the one who did this to him could experience the same. I know it'll never happen. She will be protected, her rights guaranteed through the adjudication process. Logically, I know that's a good thing. I am just SO right now! There's nothing he could have done to deserve this! Nothing!


    May the world always remember London's beautiful eyes, gleaming smile, and fight for his justice.

    He is an angel now. I just wish he didn't have to go through all that to gain his wings.

    Just saw this same thing on our local MSM here in Raleigh. It's prolly a repeat, but here it is. What a tragedy all the way around. Another dammit.

    When did we find it acceptable as a society to put up internet pleas for money to support our families, and, not getting that money, decide to murder our children? (If she felt that bereft and depressed over it, why didn't she jump, all by herself?) Especially if she wasn't involved in raising him, day-to-day, why did she feel the need to take such drastic steps?

    Thanks for the sweet words for and about the pretty London. He looked so well-dressed and happy in his little outfit and the big-boy hat.

    Your words are always so eloquent and so full of feeling.

    I'll say it again -- Heaven is too full of those little angels -- even just the ones we have followed, first in anger for what happened, then in love for the child he or she was and will ever be. I truly feel that now he has no memory of fear or panic or wondering why. He is surrounded by love we can't even imagine. Forevermore.

    We who are here will fight his fight in the ways we can. He will run and tumble and laugh and smile forever.

    She wasn't raising the child? I thought she was a full time SAHM?
