    Mother Says Carjacker Suffocated 7-Year-Old

    GREENVILLE, S.C. -- A 7-year-old boy was smothered to death late Sunday night and his mother says his killer was a knife-wielding carjacker.

    The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office got a call at about 11 p.m. from a woman who said she had been stopped at the intersection of Jacobs Road and the Interstate 85 Frontage Road.

    Deputies said that the woman told them a man forced his way into the car, pulled a knife and forced her to drive to a dirt road near the intersection.

    Investigators said the woman told them the man took an object and smothered the child. Deputies would not say what the woman said the object was.

    Deputies said that the woman told them the man ran into a nearby wooded area.

    This smells to me also. Why would he have highjacked the car and then run away on foot? Let me guess, she still had her purse and money with her also!!
    That poor child

    She had non life threatening injuries...that is just all too familiar from other cases we've followed.

    from what i was able to find it takes about 4 minutes for some1 to die from lack of oxygen to the brain. why would a stranger grab a mom and child just to kill the child like this? it was not to take the car because he ran off o foot. what was the mother doing during these 4 minutes? i want to know more about her injuries. unless she was beat to a bloody pulp and knocked out it wont make sense to me. that would not be life threatening but would be the only way i could understand how a man could smother her child and she not stop him.

    The Greenville County Sheriff's Office has released a sketch of a suspect who a woman says killed a seven year old boy and attacked her late Sunday night.

    The suspect is described as a white male in his late 30's early 40's with reddish hair. He is believed to be 6'0" and weighs 200-225 pounds and was wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans.


    An autopsy on the young boy is scheduled for Monday.

    Lt. Shea Smith with the Greenville County Sheriff's Office said a woman called them and reported being carjacked while stopped for a traffic signal near White Horse Road around 11:00pm Sunday.

    "She stopped at this intersection and call the Sheriff's Office and reported that her son had been smothered with a pillow by the male that got into the car," said Lt. Smith. "He left the car at this intersection and went out into a wooded area." http://www.wspa.com/midatlantic/spa/...8-13-0002.html

    When she stopped at a stop sign at the frontage road’s intersection with Jacobs Road, a man opened the passenger door where the boy was sitting and told him to get in the back seat, Hildebrand said
    The carjacker -- described as a white man in his late 30s to early 40s with reddish hair and a beard -- demanded she drive to a wooded area near the intersection, Hildebrand said. The carjacker then put a pillow over the boy’s face, he said. http://greenvilleonline.com/apps/pbc...WS01/708130326

    I got through half of the first sentence with this, and all I could think of was Susan Smith and Dianne----oh heck, her last name is escaping me---the one with the three kids that were shot in their car years ago---someone here knows who I mean.

    I'm sorry if I'm wrong, but her story smells like dirty diapers.

    Diane Downs perhaps? I agree with most here, this really sets off the hinkey meter. I can't make sense of why someone would just jump into a strangers car to suffocate their child and then jump back out. What was she supposedly doing during this time, watching? If the attacker had made her get out of the car and took off and then did something like this it would be a bit more believable. The things that make ya go hmmmmmm.................

    ETA: Opps, I see dr dona beat me to it. Sorry.

    Where's the rolling eyes emoticon when you need one?

    Although I'm really sad for that little boy. I"m thinking she's covering for someone (boyfriend etc) or she did it. It's either for "love" like Smith/Downs, or I bet he had some disorder and she couldn't handle it.
