    [FONT=proxima_nova_rgregular]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."[/FONT]

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

    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


    http://www.abc15.com/news/national/pd-mom-throws-6-year-old-son-off-oregon-bridge

    ----

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

    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. :notgood:

    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 :furious: right now! There's nothing he could have done to deserve this! Nothing!
    :eek:verreaction:

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

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

    :rose:

    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?

    Has anyone found a facebook for her? This popped up on Facebook and I nearly wailed aloud. How could she? HOW???? He reminds me so much of my little autistic boy, he even has that green argyle sweater in a sweater vest. I don't even understand. I can't comprehend. :(

    Woman Reportedly Throws Boy Off Bridge in Newport - kgw.com

    (snip)

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

    When asked the nature of her emergency, she told the 911 dispatcher, "I just threw my son over the Yaquina Bay Bridge," according to a probable cause affidavit obtained by KGW Tuesday morning.

    She told the dispatcher her son London was gone in the water, and described him and his clothing in detail, then described herself as an officer approached her. She told several officers on the scene that she had thrown the boy into the water.

    Well, I think we have a mental health defense in the works. :sigh:

    How much of these horrors can any of us understand? Please know that it is good that you do not understand, notagolem. Some of us, fortunately, have never been faced with what appears to be a "can't get any worse than this situation," where I guess she thought she was. Dunno. Need to know more.

    That is why faith, of whatever kind; family, if we have a good supporting one; and friends are so, so important. And certainly professional help, if qualified and well-matched (from what I've been told), can be a life-saver. There is more to this story, IMO. And please know that I am in no way trying to mitigate what she did. Oh, not for a minute, but something sent her over the top. Couldn't she just leave? Leave him with his son and his family? Just get on a bus and go. Her own flesh and blood. Oh my.

    (I can't stop SMH on this one. Going out into the street & screaming would only scare my neighbors and I would soon hear a siren...)

    Bless you and your special son. Go hug him or give him a big, big smile. Or both!

    So, she wasn't even the primary caregiver ? She won't be able to use the defense that "...she was just overwhelmed.." Sick (w)itch.
    (no offense to any real life witches, I meant that in place of another word ;)
    Maybe she was 'getting back' at someone ? Not sure who that would be; her husband's diagnosis wasn't his fault ; and it seems he might be the most devastated in this.
    :moo:
    What a cute little guy !
    Rest in peace , surrounded eternally by beauty and light, London.

    BBM, Thank you, he's the most amazing child I've ever known. I'm so blessed to have him in my life and can't imagine how empty my life would be without him. Even at the absolute worst, I never thought of hurting him, I'd just hold him and cry wishing I could take away all his hurt.
